What Do You Know About The Global Renewable Energy Market?

Worthwhile to notice that IRENA (International Renewable Energy Agency) is not recognizing nuclear energy as a source of renewable energy.

 

Renewable energy sources include hydropower, marine energy, wind energy, solar energy, and bioenergy: solid biofuels and renewable waste, including renewable municipal waste, other solid biofuels, liquid biofuels and biogas, although much of bioenergy can be problematic for instance since more and more forests are being cut down in order to produce biofuels.

 

Growing (eatable) crops in terms of biofuel production does not make any sense in a world where the vast majority of all land has already been overexploited and has thus suffered from intensive farming, in addition to the fact that immense amounts of forests around the world are being cut down daily just in order to expand production plantations for biofuels. This is very short-sighted, and unsustainable.

 

According to a number of sources, including The Guardian, one football pitch of forest is being lost EVERY ONE SECOND (2017)!!!

 

That makes 31.536.000 football pitches of lost forests worldwide every single year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Needless to say, this is extremely unsustainable, especially if and when these land areas are being used solely for the production of biofuels.
