For decades, Hermann Scheer was one of the world’s leading proponents of renewable energy. In this, his last book before his death in 2010, he lays out his vision for a planet 100% powered by renewables and examines the fundamental ethical and economic imperatives for such a shift. And most importantly, he demonstrates why? the time for this transition is now.
In Scheer’s view, talk of "bridging technologies" such as carbon capture and storage or nuclear energy – even (and perhaps especially) by environmentalists – is actively damaging the more the pressing agenda of the move to 100% renewable energy.? Instead, he offers up examples of the technologies which are working (economically) today and details the policy and market conditions which would allow them to flourish.
