Two important posts summarize for me that we are moving towards much more efficient energy utilization:
- David Suzuki’s summary of feed-in tariffs, which make small scale, local production both feasible and cost-effective, and
- ThinkProgress’s summary on lithium-ion battery technology, somewhat speculative but still very likely to develop, making energy storage much cheaper and feasible.
Both are important indicators that we will likely stabilize global warming within the next century.
My questions remain as to the quality of life for my grand-children. There are still many uncertainties as to whether or not we have passed major tipping points (and the usual difficulty of finding trust-worthy data).
