How do we jump-start the fabled overthrow of crude oil (and other fossil fuels) by renewable energy sources?
Many have predicted the downfall of crude oil and the rise of clean energy, and we are already starting to see seeds and pledges from various parts of the world that hint at a strong desire to end this dependence on fossil fuels that scientists say is destroying our world. From the solar energy world record in Germany to electric vehicle range breakthroughs, from factory emission regulations to wind, solar and bio-fuel energy exploitation, it is clear that certain countries are beginning to take the matter seriously. Yet the grim climate predictions suggest that things aren’t happening fast enough.
What measures do we (as a society) take to start a renewable energy revolution, given the far-reaching destructive power of fossil fuels? Your best ideas—electric car adoption encouragement strategies, personal renewable energy systems, government policy, whatever you think.
