Hermann Scheer

Hat tip to Climate Denial Crock of the Week.

See his Web site. Paraphrasing, what enabled Germany to have its Energiewende Scheer said that what happened in Germany it was necessary to open the space for the people to act. The main political work for the support and help for the energy revolution is

… to open the space to create investment autonomy for renewables to overcome so many direct and indirect administrative bureaucratic barriers which hindered the people to take renewables. Which hindered them! And, therefore, don’t giving them permissions for wind to be built in the counties, or don’t give them permissions for solar roofs and so forth. There are so many, so many hidden rules favoring conventional energy.

Gee, sounds like Westwood, Massachusetts.

Scheer says climate conferences are “Globally talking, nationally postponing.”

Tipping my hat to Solar City, the rhetorical question is How much land would it take to power the entire United States with solar?
