Are we heading toward an all-renewable energy future, spearheaded by wind and solar? Or are those energy sources wholly inadequate for the task?
Here’s the reality.
Oil, natural gas, and coal provide 84% of the world’s energy. That’s down just two percentage points from twenty years ago.
And oil still powers nearly 97% of all global transportation.
Contrary to headlines claiming that we’re rapidly transitioning away from fossil fuels, it’s just not happening. Two decades and five trillion dollars of governments “investing” in green energy and we’ve barely moved the needle.
This was supposed to be easy. Why is it so hard? In a word: rocks.
To get the same amount of energy from solar and wind that we now get from fossil fuels, we’re going to have to massively increase mining.
By more than 1,000%. This isn’t speculation. This is physics.
Mark Mills, a Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute and author of The Cloud Revolution, compares the energy dream to the energy reality. Watch:
