There is No Planet B-

In the US, most of the electricity is generated using fossil fuels like coal and natural gas. Typically, customers do not have a choice to pick the provider as it is monopolized by the local electricity companies. Overuse will contribute to a scarcity in this energy supply. If we really want to significantly replace fossil fuel-based power with renewable energy, then we must convince the public to care more. One way to accomplish this is to make energy choices more personal. Interestingly, convincing people that they could save money by putting solar panels on their roofs seems effective.

My exhibition explains the contrast between two ways of energy supply and conveys how your choice of renewable energy today will have a positive impact on tomorrow. If you choose a life with an EV, except you don’t have to worry about the effects toxic gasoline will have on your family, you don’t have annoying puddles of gasoline accumulating on your driveway, you don’t have to worry about your house exploding if grandpa lights up a cigarette and drops it in the wrong spot, and you’ll probably just charge every 2–3 days since charging every day is seldom necessary.

To adapt means to gradually change your behavior and attitudes to be successful in a new situation. Society must adapt to renewable energy. With proper planning, renewables can complement nuclear baseload power to obtain the optimum mix of clean, reliable, and affordable power. Could we adapt to a world reliant on renewables? Becoming accustomed to energy harnessed in large quantities and virtually on-demand, it is hard to believe people would willingly revert to something less reliable.
