Nuclear enthusiast questions authorship of IPCC renewables report.

June 16, 2011 Clean Energy, Climate 

Sven Teske of Greenpeace, an acknowledged renewables expert, was a lead author on the IPCC Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation (SRREN). 120 experts worked on the report. Mark Lynas in the Independent: “It is stretching credibility for the IPCC to suggest that a richer world with two billion more people will use less energy in 2050. Campaigners should not be employed as lead authors in IPCC reports.” Joe Romm later later eviscerates Lynas’s arguments on ClimateProgress.com, and the Lynas’s attack on the IPCC’s press release is countered on carbonbrief.org.

  • The Winning of The Carbon War

    Humanity is in a race, a kind of civil war. Believers in a safe future fuelled by endless sunlight and related forms of clean energy combat defenders of finite carbon fuels careless of the impact they have on the world by clinging to coal, oil, and gas. Jeremy Leggett fought for the light side for a quarter of a century as it lost battle after battle to the dark side. Then, in 2013, the tide began to turn. By 2015, it was clear the light side could win the war. Leggett’s diary from the front lines tells one person’s story of those turnaround years, and what they can mean for the world.
