If Green Energy Is So Great, Why Aren’t We Using It?

If Green Energy Is So Great, Why Aren't We Using It?

Green energy is getting better and cheaper, yet we still largely rely on fossil fuels. Why haven’t we switched to solar and wind energy yet?

  1. I cannot believe this video was uploaded almost a year ago. Time flies when you're trapped in threnches

  2. Coal plants in Australia are shutting down because they are not profitable. Solar and wind makes more profit. We have storage sorted out too with hydro and Tesla batteries.

  3. is that "ejecta rate" 53percent in 2000 or what? plz someone help me out here!!!(damn interpreting class:(

  4. This is so deceptive… you used the subsidy data from 2003 for coal. Guess what happened in 2003… "the invasion of Iraq" for which the us needed more energy. Science doesn't need deception. So don't taint it with ideology.

  5. Here are producing power process “boma fetching unique” (Google it) to help your house be more energy efficient and cut utility bills for years to come. A small change like this will be able to help you save cash in the future. You can be a person who wants to save the environment or a family man wanting to save on bills, this is definitely among the best methods you will have.

  6. I thought the world used to be hotter though before the ice age, We have bigger insects because it was hotter, maybe we are still catching up to returning back to normal. Maybe its still too cold.

  7. We are working on a tool to advance the growth of green energy through the use of blockchain technology. Its numbers like the ones highlighted in this video that excite us about the opportunity we all have! We are new to the market and looking forward for to expanding the discussion and getting feedback. Visit us on socials or xiwatt.io if you share this passion!

  8. We must be careful about letting short-term effects skew our long-term planning. Electricity is abundant and cheap now. But as we electrify more and more of the economy we'll need massive new generating capacity (maybe 2.4x if we electrified everything). Wind and Solar will help but cannot come close to filling the need. For interesting reasons, nuclear has generally gotten a badly misinformed rap in the press. Far from being a corporate welfare queen, per kWh, nuclear gets less subsidy than almost any other generator. But more important is the promise of Advanced Nuclear. Non-water-cooled, inherently safe, much less waste (some designs use existing waste as fuel), no proliferation risk, and cheaper to build than a coal plant. Unfortunately these things are only a promise because in the U.S. we've defunded research and there is no way a non-water-cooled reactor can get a commercial license. China, Russia, and even Canada are not similarly impaired. Sad for us.
