100% Renewable Energy

It is Possible

Our Solution

Our solution is a three stage plan. The first step is to rehabilitate the planet by cleaning the carbon that we have already put into the air. The next step is to update all the coal plants with different sources of renewable energy. The final step is to sustain the planet by only creating clean energy and by continuing to scrub the air of all carbon emissions.

Rehabilitate

The first step of our plan is rehabilitation of the atmosphere by removing the carbon from the air. We need to remove the carbon that we have already put into the air because there is already to much of it and it must be removed. Fortunately, we have discovered a way to remove the carbon from the air called carbon scrubbing. Unfortunately, extracting carbon from the air would likely cost more than one thousand dollars per ton. We also produce around forty billion tons of carbon each year. This equates to over forty trillion dollars spent annually to get rid of the carbon dioxide that we produce. No country is willing to spend this much money on sustaining the planet, no matter how necessary. This is why we need to update our technology to reduce carbon emissions, which is step two.

Update

Update and Build new Energy Source


Wind and Solar are readily available. They are used but the efficiency is low. Provided that, if we built a 10,000 square mile solar panel farm we could provide more than enough energy for the whole United States. based on my calculation though that would cost 792 billion dollars which is just for the production not for labor.

The solution is not one thing. It is a combination of all these technologies together. This means using Solar, Wind, Geothermal, Hydroelectric, Nuclear Fission, and in future hopefully Nuclear Fusion. We must update our infrastructure for our generations to come. We are running out of time and we must act now to save our children and our children's children!

Sustain

We must sustain the previous two steps in order to keep the planet from being threatened by global warming again.
