Renewable Energy, Climate Change, and the Difficulty of Major Transitions | The Exchange - Yahoo! Finance
As President Obama begins his second term, there is a growing realization of the need, both in the United States and globally, to shift our energy system from a reliance on fossil fuels toward renewable sources of energy. This transition has been a long time coming, and it will take a long time to complete, but it is both inevitable and necessary if we are to have any chance of reducing the likelihood of disastrous global climate change.
Some renewable energy technologies are already economically competitive with traditional fossil fuel or nuclear systems.
Dr. Peter Gleick is President of the Pacific Institute, a non-profit, non-partisan think tank in Oakland, California.
