Every year, the world uses 35 billion barrels of oil. This massive scale of fossil fuel dependence pollutes the earth, and it won’t last forever. On the other hand, we have abundant sun, water and wind, which are all renewable energy sources. So why don’t we exchange our fossil fuel dependence for an existence based only on renewables? Federico Rosei and Renzo Rosei describe the challenges.

Why dont we just send s
Huge solar panels out to space like a satellite and just collect the energy since itll be collecting 24/7 this will all so be possible forming a contract with private rocket companies like SpaceX. Current rocket launch is 14million - 50 million

Gravity Powered Generator is a very good solution as a renewable energy source. Way superior to solar and wind for many reasons.

I studied at university for years and years and years until i came up with my light bulb moment and that is cycle to work and turn the lights of when you leave the office, I think its still at the development stage but am hoping it will take off one day.

What ‘renewable’ fuels do the global change enthusiasts intend to use for airplane fuels? It sounds like they want the US to not fly anymore while our enemies can fly nuclear bombers?

Too complex and not needed.

You see how they didn't mention nuclear?

Batteries are a triumph of science—they allow smartphones and other technologies to exist without anchoring us to an infernal tangle of power cables. Yet even the best batteries will diminish daily, slowly losing capacity until they finally die. Why does this happen, and how do our batteries even store so much charge in the first place? Adam Jacobson gives the basics on batteries.
