April 21st 2009. Join the Group Read. Chapter 19. The basic solution
(Instructions on how to join are at the bottom of the original post)
Assume: a) we can't change energy per capita too much; b) we can't change the capita (ie no creepy population control) and we still want sustainability ... The basic solution is:
1. electrify transport
2. electrify space heating
3. produce electricity with whatever local renewables we can, augmented by clean coal, nuclear and imported solar from desert regions.
Sounds simple, no?
