Yeah, but many countries are moving their energy production towards greener methods. Some produce already more than 50% of their energy that way.

I'm in France. I remember all the gouvernement tools at the time saying to people to get diesel cause gas was causing too much pollution. And here we are, they are currently telling people to ditch all their Diesel cars that the gouvernement told them to get years ago. Now they push people to buy electric car and even give you a discount on the second hand electric cars. They just announced that France will not reduce their nuclear sites either in 2021. I mean. What do you want. I'm lost and done.

This is completely true. But if we consider not only current state, but take in to account strategies to increase the share of renewable energy and decarbonization till 2050, we would see whole picture: 1.Tipicaly car is used for 10-20 years (average) so it is better to start to initiate change right now. 2.If we take in to account change managment practices - in the begining there are posibilities to get discounts and other bonuses (in our country - free parking in cities, acces to fast lane dedicated to public transport). 3.Later probably there will be restrictions like higher polution tax and additional taxes for those who refuse to buy electric cars. 4.The importance to lineary increase number of electric cars is also important for service companies and charging infrastructure. Because if we have explosive rise of numbers there will be dificulties to adopt the required services to that scale.

Thanks a lot for this! What you're saying really makes sense. It all adds up to a question of how fast societies will be able to adapt to new behavioural and consumer habits. :))

Sustainability covers everything, even Netflix! According to their 鈥淩enewable Energy Update鈥 this company strives to the highest sustainability echelon. Imagine, their ~51k megawatt hours (MWHs) energy use was 100% renewable in 2018. That鈥檚 enough to power a small African country Comoros for a year! Netflix also pushes sustainable energy use from their partners (think Amazon). This indirect energy use was ~194k MWhs in 2018. An example, I say! Next time you鈥檒l be in search of an industry example, remember Netflix!

Solar energy from windows, but how about other everyday items? 鈽锔 Apart from windows, imagine this technology being adapted to Phones for example.馃摫 From the looks, it might be a regular phone, although the big difference would be charging. You wouldn't need it. It would charge itself just by laying under the sunlight. In the future this technology might reduce the reliability on Power Plants, additionally reducing the consumption of electricity from daily used electronics. 鉁岋笍 Innovation indeed! To which other things would you adapt transparent solar panels? 馃 https://www.sustainability-times.com/green-consumerism/solar-panels-could-soon-be-transparent-enough-to-be-windows/

Where a smart person doesn't understand marketing? In a Books review section. Sounds like a Dads joke, you may say. Although quite often the scientific community demands 360 objectivity from books that just aren't aimed at that. One of many comments about Bills' latest book on climate change - "Bill Gates didn't study climate science..." But I believe, if his goal would be to impress the scientific community, he would manage that... IMHO many books serve as an opinion about a complex topic for people who will never open up and study dozens of difficult, jargon-ish science reports. It's just a matter of the target audience. So when you see a fancy, one-start review on a book you like, question whether the person wrote it from the right perspective. PS.: Read up Bills interview for HBR about his book.
