A Fossil Fuel-Free World is Possible: How to Power a Warming Earth Without Oil, Coal and Nuclear

Democracy Now! | June 5, 2015 | Report by Amy Goodman

Is a 100 percent renewable energy future possible? According to Stanford professor Mark Jacobson, the answer is yes. Jacobson has developed plans for all 50 states to transform their power infrastructure to rely on wind, water and solar power. This comes as California lawmakers have approved a dozen ambitious environmental and energy bills creating new standards for energy efficiency. Dubbed the California climate leadership package, the 12 bills set high benchmarks for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and petroleum use. We speak with Jacobson and Noah Diffenbaugh, Stanford University associate professor and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment.
