As a PhD researcher and an environmentalist who is deeply concerned about the utter lack of progress in reducing CO2 emissions, it has been dismaying to follow how the mainstream environmental movement has been spending money and energy in fighting the one technology that has actually – and not just in projections printed in glossy brochures – decarbonized entire nations. So far, the result is, as recent statistics show, an utter stagnation in the share of energy the world generates from clean energy sources: we are actually no closer to a carbon-free society than we were in 1990, despite all the hype surrounding various renewable energy schemes, and total global emissions only keep on growing.
