Id like to thank you all in advance for your submissions.

Script:

In an economy burdened by the cost of increasingly scarce oil and natural gas
and a planet already feeling the impact of fossil fuel driven climate change, the technological revolution of our time is renewable energy.
Sunlight, wind, water, geo thermal heat are all essentially limitless resources and they’re all proven technologies that work right here... right now.
The sun provides the earth with unfathomable amounts of energy.
In one hour... the earth receives more energy from the sun than the entire human race uses in a year.
With current technology, photovoltaic cells covering 10,000 square miles or about 10 percent of the land area of Nevada could provide all the electricity used by the United States.
A 2 bedroom suburban American home gets enough energy on its roof to power itself once or twice over.
The 21st century lifestyle from global positioning to global communications, is completely dependent on solar energy.
The U.S. Coast Guard became one of the first earth-based users of photo-voltaics.
Powering its remote buoys and weather stations with solar panels wired to batteries.
In the 1970’s and 80’s solar panels performed heroically during one of the worst droughts to hit Africa.
Solar power was used to pump water from 40 feet below the parched ground saving many lives.
Wind is certainly a hot technology.
“To put it in perspective.... North and South Dakota theoretically have enough wind to power the whole country.
The challenge is tapping that and transmission and distribution but if you look at the center of the country the wind resources are tremendous.
If you look at the coastlines, the wind resources are tremendous.”

Tapping into the planet’s heat to create electricity is called geothermal energy.
It is virtually an unlimited source of power.
Hot enough to power a small nation.

A wave farm occupying less than a half square mile of ocean would generate 30 megawatts of power or enough to power 20,000 British homes.
472 square miles of ocean, could power each of the 24 and a half million British households.

Each region of the earth has its own renewable sources from the wind potential in Nevada to the solar motherload that waits in the sahara.
When you put them all together one thing becomes clear: Renewable energy offer global solutions to global problems.
