100 Percent Renewable Energy Possible by 2030

A new study published in the journal Energy Policy says that we could achieve 100 percent renewable energy by 2030, and not just U.S., but the world.  The study says that we have access to all the necessary technology, but strong political would have to exist for it to happen.

So, how can we get to viagra discussionsdiscount priced viagra 100 percent renewables by 2030?  Well, to be exact, the study says we'll need:

The calculations leave out biomass because of pollution and land use issues, as well as nuclear power.  The wind turbines are larger than most currently operating today, but a few 5 MW offshore turbines have been built.

Two major hurdles to this plan are finding ways to interconnect the various power sources based on generic cialis 50mg output and variability (wind being high output but high variability, tidal and geothermal being low output but low variability), and a supply bottleneck of rare earth materials.  For those materials, mining would have to increase by five times the current rate and recycling would have to be introduced.

The authors say political roadblocks to such a massive build-up of women levitra renewable energy would be the largest challenge of all.

a great start....

I think this is cialis professional cheap pretty brilliant, that it's possible to achieve this benchmark, and I'm all for moving in that direction. However, I would imagine their numbers are calculated based on current energy consumption levels, possibly including 30-year projections.

Regardless of what energy source we're using, we are going to run into the same problem of depleting the Earth's resources, and one solution (barring terraforming a nearby planet or mass loss of life from famine/disease/war) exists to generic cialis remedy that: we must reduce our consumption levels.

Green energy is not going to restock ocean fisheries, restore tropical rainforests, or revitalize nutrient-depleted soil. It will certainly help, but true sustainability goes beyond green energy, and it involves a drastic restructuring of our entire way of living and interacting with the world.
The future will be a marriage between Technology and Ecology

The future will be a marriage between Technology and Ecology. We are inventing solutions to these problems all the time, I'm stoked. Everything is going exponential, yes problems are, but solutions will catch up. Think of cialis 25mg all our wasted resources on War - Let us put our men and cheapest levitra prescription women instead to work for green energy and use permaculture/rengenerative design. Imagine how fast we could turn this ship around!

What a brilliant post! From your post not only U.S but the whole world can benefit this. This is interesting, I look forward to this. =)
That's not a plan. This is a plan.

Over two years ago I consolidated a ton of research I had collected into groups and laid out a very good plan for how to do this. When I hit a roadblock, like the pitfalls mentioned above, I went either hunting for some solution or developed one myself. The result is 6 blogs (with an included spreadsheet) that lays it all out in black and white. It only applies to the US but that's the only geographical info I had for calculating maximum "convenient" usage. Check it out. It's much more comprehensive than these guys. (Except that all large wind is lumped together - offshore, onshore, high altitude, etc.)
Mark Jacobson's talk about this at Cornell

Mark Jacobson of Stanford just gave a talk at Cornell on this very topic, it can be view along side his slides here:

Very encouraging!
it would be do-able if....

it was law that every new house/factory built, had to have PVP or solar panels or roof mounted horizontal wind turbine, plus air/ground source heating or similar. It would be entirely possible that each home was responsible for it's own power without buying from outside sources. I live very rural and being able to drug cialis produce my own electricity would be a definate bonus for every time we have a bit of a storm, there is a power cut.
If you want to fill every square inch of the planet with WIND TURBINES
written by irene, February 25, 2011
So, we give up all our views, we all suffer from wind turbine health effects, we destroy the animals that live in the areas that are bein usurped and replace the natural landscapes with Don Quiotes greatest nightmare, we pay exorbitant electricity costs, we call it "green when we replace nature with wind generators filled with 850 gallons of oil each (did I say toxic waste site!). NO THANKS!!!!!!!
Sun is cialis generic 10mg no rx rising high for the renewable energy industry

This is a wonderful post indeed...We have brilliant renewable energy resources, brilliant innovators like Siemens, so the goal of being 100% dependent on renewable energy resources to answers our energy demands by 2030 is not a tough goal to achievesmilies/smiley.gif

Utopia is a world with no pollution. The only way to this is get rid of generic viagra in india all the people. World population reduction is a more realistic way to accomplish great results. All sounds crazy, but renewable conversion is on parity with it.

Dissolving the monopolies that thousands of municipalities have created is the real problem here. How are you going to dissolve the port authorities monopoly of ALL things on the we use it what is the cost of levitra west coast of the America? How are you going to dissolve the energy cartels in Los Angeles that funnel artificially inflated taxes on energy that pull in outrageous profits and then hold the city hostage for profits it owns. You doubt politics will be the real problem then you need new glasses.
