If Green Energy Is So Great, Why Aren't The Truth about Hydrogen 7 months ago   03:30

Green energy is getting better and cheaper, yet we still largely rely on fossil fuels. Why haven't we switched to solar and wind energy yet?

What Would Happen If We Burned All The Fossil Fuels On Earth?
"A new study published today in Science Advances finds that if we burn all of the remaining fossil fuels on Earth, almost all of the ice in Antarctica will melt, potentially causing sea levels to rise by as much as 200 feet--enough to drown most major cities in the world."

Who's Winning The Battle To Replace Coal?
"Coal is losing the battle for the electricity future in the United States. Investment in new coal-fired generating capacity has dried up with its share of electricity generation dropping from 53% in 2000 to 34% in 2015."

Electricity in the United States
"In 2015, coal was used for about 33% of the 4 trillion kilowatthours of electricity generated in the United States. In addition to being burned to heat water for steam, natural gas can also be burned to produce hot combustion gases that pass directly through a natural gas turbine, spinning the turbine's blades to generate electricity."

You are not a home owner are you guy
"raising the average temperature of the globe" - the global temperature has actually dropped, polar ice caps have increased, ocean shorelines have been super stable and not rising.

So your entire argument that climate change is even A THING is a big fat lie. you're what's now called a climate hysteric. but, please, go on with your video. you're kinda cute #nohomo

Nuclear is best.. all that's needed is better waste management

The moment you said renewable energy cost zero dollar. You just lost me. Nothing is free in economic.

We Would Be Better United
The countries that run on a lot of oil will not want to change this. Also just happens to be the powerful countries such as the the US, RUSSIA, CHINA, INDIA, ETC.
Fossil fuels work better than Green energy. The false promise of Solar and wind have been greatly exaggerated. Nuclear power needs a revolution as the future of green energy is over sold.

Bollocks ! Bollocks bollocks bollocks.

Yes you oversimplified the issue and are biased starting the video claiming that climate change is real as if that's true.
There is no first world country run running in renewal... because they can't. Ask the Germans... they tried and didn't work for shit. Also believing in climate change is a luxury of first world's leftists. Nobody can't tell China and India to go away from fossil because they can't!!!!

So yeah this is monumentally out of context... thumbs down.

Trump won't allow it !!

Because it's gay.

If a windmill falls down its going to require diesel powered heavy equipment to put it up again. Although passenger vehicles and motorcycles can run on solar but what about construction equipment, city buses, semi trucks? Fossil fuels are still needed for those.
Roy Lopez
Fake news!
We will never stop useing fossil fuels every retrograde plastic rubber paint and most petroleum based products are made from fossil fuels one volcano errupts it does 20,000 years worth of damage based on current C02 pollution standards
George Edwards Vlog
This video doesn’t cover any of the big issues for renewables.
Easy answer - The big donors and the American public who believe the mass media stations working for the big donors.
Martin Christensen
Because renewables being cheap doesn’t mean that replacing existing power plants that are already built is cheap. When building new facilities then renewables is highly competitive now.
ian steel
What a croc.
Robron Hoodlum
The best energy is when you put a windmill on top of your roof.

Wall street is making money out of our fears about global warming, CO2 emissions, ozone layers and so forth while we sit here and discuss it. make your own research.

Errors: I made an off hand comment about adding efficiencies in the video without thinking. This is obviously incorrect, but the final calculation does in fact multiply the efficiencies.
