Renewable energy would save EU trillions by 2050
Nov 20, 2012

The Commission by environmental campaigners forecast 3 trillion euros would generate by 2050 on their green revolution campaign- to make EU energy almost totally carbon free.

The energy shift would already create around half a million extra jobs by 2020, Crown researchers from German aerospace center DLR, which also specializes in energy and transport, found. It has legislated to ensure that 20 percent of the energy mix is green by the said year, as part of a set of three main environmental goals. But it has yet to achieve agreement on binding targets beyond 2020, even though non-binding roadmaps have laid out the need for a virtually carbon-free electricity mix by 2050.

The type of renewable energy is important in this discussion. Energy experts say that our needs are becoming massive and are unlikely to be satisfied by even the massive output of nuclear plants let alone the present Wind and Solar technologies.
Wind uses up a lot of area and does not produce a lot of power for its cost. Solar has promise but doesn't yet seem to solve our massive power needs.
There are under-researched technologies pioneered by Nikola Tesla that appear as though they may be able to solve our problems but the Powers that be have not even mentioned these ideas. They have even gone as far as to ignore Tesla's contribution as a scientist to the world of electricity.
We shouldn't be wasting time on technologies that will not keep up with our energy needs. We should investigate the ones that can deliver.

I feel this idea is vital for the future and for our childrens future. The rate we use fossil fuels is disgusting. These new renewable resources could not only gain us money, but put into practice important roles to potentially saving the world, depending on how you view global warming. Countries like Germany have set good examples in production of energy as they manage to export a decent amount of energy, much of their energy coming from hydroelectricity. I hope to see this increase worldwide yet wonder what places like plains and deserts may do to make this energy... Any innovative ideas besides expensive solar energy.

The fact that Europe is even close to being carbon free is impressive. There are so many issues concerning energy that need to be adressed. Some people view natural gas as the solution to the United States' energy problems, however natural gas is far from perfect. Fracking is a huge issue. When they drill for natural gas, the stone above get cracked causing gas to leak into the water table. This causes unsafe drinking water for people living near by. Coal lets off lage emissions of carbon. Many people feel that the United states doesn't have the money to invest in clean energy sources right now, but if we don't we will run out of the natural resources we have now. Europe is setting an example that hopefully the US and other countries will follow. If they don't follow, we may loose our way of life or even our planet.
