It could take land nearly the size of Connecticut filled with solar panels or windmills to power New York City. We need better solutions. Continue using non-carbon producing nuclear power and prioritize inner earth heat (geothermal), ocean tides, improved conservation, planting millions-more carbon absorbing trees, more efficient appliances and transmission of electricity, hybrid and all-electric cars, charging stations.
Let’s vigorously research fusion energy (like the sun merging hydrogen into helium). Fusion would provide infinite clean energy. We must solve nature’s elusive riddle.
Nuclear Power. We are in a bind. Retiring nuclear plants too quickly is ill-advised. Germany did it, and now they are in a terrible predicament, relying upon dirty oil from the filthy Russian government. We must learn a lesson from Germany’s experience. People justifiably are concerned about a nuclear meltdown, but the reality is the industry has a remarkably safe record. We need to continue using nuclear energy, relieving us of oil, until safer and cleaner energy sources become available. Let’s not panic. Give a 25 year window. I’m confident great options will emerge by then. Meantime, let nuclear plants provide clean energy.
CO2 Removal Technology. I support research and promotion of technologies that can remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as a tool to help deal with the emissions problem.
Waste to Energy. I wish to pursue a program to convert trash to energy and study ways to use modern technologies that avoid past side effect of pollution brought on by burning trash. Carbon dioxide removal technology makes this plan worthy to explore
