Richardson, Boston 2 March 2013 demanded a rapid retreat from fossil fuels. “One hundred and forty-five countries are making renewable energy the centerpiece of their policies,” he said. “How do we move from a static energy policy and reliance on fossil fuels to sustainable, renewable clean energy?”

History shows new sources of energy are one of two innovations that explain widespread human progress- Norman Macrae, The Economist



Brookings 14 December : Ours is the first generation to know about climate change and the last with a chance to resolve it. Moreover, China's decision-makers are determined to help their peoples and worldwide youth lead the way on this



Extract from The Economist Intelligence Unit, Gregor Macdonald



It is almost certainly the case that humanity has entered a third, historic energy transition. The first two, from wood to coal in the 18th century and then coal to oil in the 20th century, in retrospect seem obvious in their outcomes. But no such benefit of hindsight exists today as economies--western in particular--struggle with the end of cheap oil. Left to cast about for the next primary energy source, energy futurists have probed everything from algae to thorium as industrialism limps slowly away from fossil fuels. But one technology offers promise: solar. Long considered too expensive to consider, solar may now be too cheap to ignore. Solar panels, employed to capture the diffuse rays of the sun, have crashed in price in recent years causing havoc among solar manufacturers. Panels are now barely one quarter of the price they were in 2008. The benefits have accrued instead to users, as efficiency of photovoltaic capture continues to advance, while price continues to decline. The result? Nearly exponential growth in installed, global solar capacity
