Arguments about climate change are irrelevant; it makes sense to invest in renewable energy sources.
YAY :D
0:24 "..., and *NEVER* run out" It *WILL* eventually run out to it is only called renewable energy because it does not pollute the environment and we are able to use them for a longer (a lot longer) period of time than non renewable sources

This glossy attempt to sell renewables omits the fact that, as intermittent sources, they depend on gas turbine plants for backup power, and that's just pumping more greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. Nuclear doesn't, and it's reliable and statistically safer than all other energy platforms...check it out.

I don’t know why trump is against this. I mean, think of all the jobs that could be made building solar panels, wind turbines, and geothermal power plants!

I came across videos to another renewable energy technology not listed in this video, but looks to be the ultimate - even better than fusion energy. They have a long name but I remember them by H2IL. They have some brain storming videos worth looking at.

http://www.ted.com What's the key to using alternative energy, like solar and wind? Storage -- so we can have power on tap even when the sun's not out and the wind's not blowing. In this accessible, inspiring talk, Donald Sadoway takes to the blackboard to show us the future of large-scale batteries that store renewable energy. As he says: "We need to think about the problem differently. We need to think big. We need to think cheap."
