For only 99 BILLION Euros, the Energy Evolution Report promises almost carbon-free energy…
…Commissioned by Greenpeace and the European Renewable Energy Council (EREC), the 2012 Energy evolution report lays out steps towards almost carbon-free energy. They include curbing energy demand through greater efficiency, increasing investment in wind and solar power and phasing out subsidies for carbon-intensive energy, such as coal. To bring about the energy transformation, it sees a need to invest about 99 billion euros between now and 2050, but it says the financial gains are much greater.
“Because renewable energy has no fuel costs, the fuel cost savings in the Energy evolution scenario reach a total of 3,010 billion euros up to 2050, or 75 billion per year,” the report said.
…”Each year we emit almost 30 billion tonnes of carbon equivalent,” the report said further. “We are literally filling up the sky.”
