Renewable Energy Solutions {Videos}

July 27th, 2011 by  

Peter Sinclair, one of the most respected global warming denial debunkers on the web has been shifting his attention to renewable energy solutions. He is known for his wonderful, humorous, insightful, well-researched, and pointed videos, which he obviously puts a lot of time into. So far, here are his renewable energy solutions videos:

Wind Energy Part I

Wind Energy Part II

Energy Efficiency Part 1

Plug-in Hybrids

Great videos, eh?

For more from Peter, check out his site: Climate Denial Crock of the Week.

Check out our new 93-page EV report, based on over 2,000 surveys collected from EV drivers in 49 of 50 US states, 26 European countries, and 9 Canadian provinces.

He spends most of his time here on CleanTechnica as its director and chief editor, but he's also the president of Important Media and the director/founder of EV Obsession, Solar Love, and Bikocity. Zach is recognized globally as a solar energy, electric car, and energy storage expert. Zach has long-term investments in TSLA, FSLR, SPWR, SEDG, & ABB β€” after years of covering solar and EVs, he simply has a lot of faith in these particular companies and feels like they are good cleantech companies to invest in.

    Great videos! Thanks for bringing them to our attention.

      i know, LOVE his stuff πŸ˜€

        Ditto. Wonderfully wry sense of humour –

        * Carter: “Tonight I want to have an unpleasant talk with you.”

        * Sinclair: “Uh, oh!”


        And he clearly ‘gets it’ on energy – especially the BS that floats around the subject. πŸ™‚

          Yeah, so happy he’s turned his attention to this as well.. though, the climate denial debunking still needed.

          • BlueRock

            This might be slightly sacrilegious, but I’ve slowly come to the conclusion over the past year that talking about climate change should no longer be a priority for anyone concerned about climate change.

            Everyone who will accept the science already does. Everyone in denial will remain in denial long after New York and London slide under the waves. And all the apathetic people in the middle will remain apathetic.

            We need to focus on ‘selling’ the solution – a future utopia where all our energy arrives for free via sun and wind and brings net economic and social benefit. That’s the only way we can ‘fix’ the climate change problem.

            Of course, we still need to push back against the Big Lies and communicate the latest science – but the major focus needs to be advocating for clean energy… just as you guys are doing. πŸ™‚

            Yeah, I think I agree.

            My main point/concern is the continuous spewing of big lies, and it seems they are even getting craftier at how they spread them. For example, this latest one that went from a poorly conducted Roy Spencer study to an obscure online journal to the Heartland Institute to Forbes to Yahoo! News & everywhere in between. And seeing it pop up in Google News with the titles I saw I realized how much the common public is being confused on the clear science. ( *)*

            But, yeah, getting a head start on the solutions and making it clear that they are win-win-win-win technologies is perhaps even more important, at this point at least.

          • BlueRock

            Yup. I saw the hullabaloo over that Roy Spencer paper. Same pattern as always – junk paper from usual suspect gets quickly trumpeted by usual sources as having over-turned ~200 years of accumulated science. It’s quickly debunked by real scientists but the debunking gets no headlines.

            And that process will be repeated again next month. Whatchagonnado? :/

            P.S. I didn’t know you wrote for PlanetSave as well. Very industrious! πŸ™‚

          • Anonymous

            haha, yeah, i’m all over the place. here & there a ton, and then write several other places regularly πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

            yeah, that’s exactly the formula, eh?

            bottom line is, in a democracy, people should be informed. and we are not..

          • BlueRock


            > …people should be informed. and we are not..

            Nail meet hammer. The MSM have and continue to fail us. Thank Odin for the reality-based blogosphere!

            Even that bastion of supposed journalistic excellence, the BBC, have been atrocious in their coverage of global warming – so eager to present ‘both sides’ they have distorted the truth… although a recent review should force that to change and the views of the ‘sceptics’ will get a lot less coverage.

            Keep sticking it to ’em! πŸ™‚

            All the best,

            Yeah, NYTimes has been rubbish too. Internet is a life-saver, but also makes it easier than ever for people to just go get their news from biased sources (i.e. Wattsupwiththat).

            Keep spreading the good word! This is the real benefit of social media. Mixes the good & the bad.
