Yale Environment 360 Reports Growth in Solar 1 April 2017

Posted by Willard Anderson on April 1st, 2017.

Yale Environment 360 published a graph which shows the tremendous growth in solar, “Utility-scale solar more than doubled its capacity last year”. Apparently solar can now be competitive with coal or natural gas. In Canada if one transferred the subsidies from fossil fuels to solar and wind and green energy generally then green energy would be less costly. As well the full costs of fossil fuels have never been added in to fossil fuel companies costs in their economic formula. The tax payer pays fossil fuels companies costs. Fossil fuel caused storms and destruction and death now annually represent around one trillion dollars in costs globally. Death rates are increasing with millions in Africa at risk this year from drought. For the sake of the children we have to make changes toward green energy now.
