According to research by The New York Times, the US has gone from 10% renewables to 23%. A lot of the southern States are going investing in Solar and Wind power. NYC is banning gas for buildings and cooking as of 2025. US Steel is converting to being powered by Solar, reducing Carbon emissions 83%.
Semi Conductor factories are slated to be built in Arizona and Universities are gearing up to train people in Clean Room technologies.
It makes me wonder, why are we still giving out permits for oil or gas drilling?
Renewable energy is cheaper then fossil fuels and has zero emissions.
Renewable energy employs twice as many people , as the Fossil Fuel Industry.
Electric Vehicles cost savings and tax credits, make them cost effective to own.
Consortiums are creating charging stations, to make charging EV’s accessible.
Going Green is economically worthwhile. It’s a win win for America and the World. Last year China spent over a $550 Billion on renewable energy. They’re the earth’s largest emitter of Carbons.
Clean energy entrepreneurs are flocking to Oklahoma, too. Francis Energy, a fast-growing maker of electric vehicle charging stations, is based in Tulsa. Canoo, an electric vehicle start-up, is building a 100,000-square-foot battery factory at a nearby industrial park and a manufacturing plant for its trucks in Oklahoma City, though there are questions about whether the company will have enough funding to realize its plans. And teams from Solar Power of Oklahoma are busy fastening photovoltaic panels to the roofs of homes and businesses around Tulsa.
“We have a tremendous sense of pride in our history,” said Dewey F. Bartlett Jr., the Republican former mayor of Tulsa who was an oil and gas executive but now helps recruit clean energy companies to the region. “But we also understand that energy is energy, whether it is generated by wind, steam or whatever it might be.”
Houston, home to more than 500 oil and gas companies, also has more than 130 solar- and wind-related companies. Some of the country’s largest wind and solar farms are in the Texas flatlands outside the city, and a huge wind farm has been proposed off the coast of Galveston.
In Arkansas, a planned solar farm — the state’s biggest — is expected to help power a nearby U.S. Steel factory that is undergoing a $3 billion upgrade. When complete, the plant will use electric furnaces to mold scrap steel into new products. That will result in about 80 percent less greenhouse gases, the company says, and set the pace for an industry that has been a major polluter.
