Tesla Master Plan Part 3
Join Neil Kitching in a discussion with Dr. Peter Carter, Paul Beckwith and Charles Gregoire on Tesla’s Master Plan Part 3, which provides a plan to transition from a fossil fuel based economy to a sustainable energy economy.
This video was recorded on May12th, 2023, and published on June 5th, 2023.
Some of the topics discussed:
- How there is a clear path to a sustainable energy economy which does not require destroying natural habitats, being austere, or stopping the use of electricity.
- How today’s fossil fuel based economy consumes 165 petawatt hours per year and how a sustainable energy economy would consume half this amount or 82 petawatt hours per year primarily through end-use efficiency.
- The six-point plan to move from a fossil fuel to a sustainable energy economy.
- An inspiring personal home-based experience of moving off fossil fuels to the use of sustainable energy.
- How the Tesla plan aligns with Mark Jacobson’s plan of just wind, solar and water, which was first proposed in 2009.
- How the world energy demand is still rising and, although renewables are being implemented to meet this increased demand, the fossil fuel component is still not being reduced and in fact is getting more and more funding and subsidies including from Canadian banks.
- How once a sustainable system has been built, the money required to maintain it is less than the fossil fuel based system partly by not requiring the spending of money to find new sources of fossil fuels.
- How, according to Tony Seba of RethinkX, FSD, Full Self Driving technology, has the potential to drive a 75% decline in the demand for personal vehicles.
- How the market share of clean renewables is still only a few percent of our system today and how there is a need to have a global activist campaign to reduce fossil fuel subsidies and promote the transition to renewable energy sources.
- And much more . . .
