Imagining A New Energy System

Imagine that the norm is electricity meters running backward. Yes, your solar panel collected so much it turned your meter around. Decentralized power plants, the people collecting and storing energy. Just a few of the thoughts on the following videos. Imagine a new energy system that some are creating — but why not the rest?

“Images are food.” Thanks to Peter Sinclair for serving a feast on Climate Denial Crock of the Week in a recent post: “Imagine a New Energy System.”

The first step to creating is imagining. As Sinclair points out, “We can’t build a future that we can’t imagine.”

Check out the cool energy storage tech at 2:50 on this first video below, POWER TO CHANGE, and please overlook the typo in the thumbnail.

A complementary piece produced by Yale Climate Connections, featuring Elon Musk, is “Birthing A Solar Age.”

And here’s an animated Paul Gipe talking about energy independence and distributed energy:

Sinclair posted one more video on his recent article — a genuinely troubling commentary by Fox News (sheer misinformation and ignorance). It was just too disturbing to repost. I ask, “Where is the intelligence,” as Edy Kraus said. Sinclair calls it “an example of outrageous anti-renewable dis-info.” Go to Climate Denial Crock of the Week for this video from Fox News if you feel inclined. More akin to a paid employee expounding propaganda for gas companies rather than a viable journalist.
