Things were so bad a few years ago that I used to hang out on doomer and prepper boards and get pissed off at people who touted technological solutions to the world's problems. I thought they were just trying to blow sunshing up my ass. I thought that technology had already sent us over the fossil fuel/peak oil cliff and that no amount of innovation would save us. I bought into the doom and gloom.
And then, somehow, I managed to shake it off! At some point within the last week I ran across some information that caught my attention. First was a news article talking about how Texas just set a new record for electricity generated by wind turbines. Second was an article about the record levels of renewable energy being produced in Germany. (http://www.energymatters.com.au/index.php?main_page=news_article&article_id=4113). At some point I also watched a short documentary on YouTube from a couple of years ago about the Solar Revolution.
Suddenly, things looked much brighter! (no pun intended) Capacity, storage, cost - all of the major issues with renewable energy are being tackled, and the industry is making amazing progress. The installed base is exploding! I'm genuinely excited!
