Great talk on the “future” of energy. The future is NOW! Let’s do this! An optimistic plan on how we can eliminate the need for oil and use the power of real clean alternatives to fuel or lives.
I am an avid promoter and user of alternatives. After converting my home in 2005 to a less than Zero Energy Home (ZEH) – by installing a photovoltaic system, solar water heater, skylights, PVC-free reflecting cool roof, canceling gas service, making it an energy producing home while giving back the 2/3 excess to the grid – I saw how we can turn things around and make a difference with our actions, be it personal or systemic. We have unlimited resources from the sun, wind, ocean, geothermal, etc. No need to extract, transport, refine and deliver dirty energy that leaves trails of devastation and creates pollution. The clean alternatives have always been with us. We just have to make the right choices NOW.” Violeta Villacorta
