Yes, renewable energy will become a major source of energy in the next 10 years. The world - especially the United States - uses up so many nonrenewable energy sources that we have start looking into and maintaining a renewable energy source like solar energy, wind energy, etc. In addition, a lot of nonrenewable energy is bad for the environment like gasoline.
Renewable energy will continue to grow and it will become a major source of energy in some countries. I believe the U.S. will be a lot slower and will never come close to 100% renewable energy because the oil companies have too much at stake and have too much power in the government. I also don't think most people realize how important renewable energy is to the earth's survival.
Completely bogus report. Considering this global warming emissions is like saying that rotting organic matter in the forest is contributing to global warming cycle. If the dam was not there, the organic matter would still float down the river and decay.
Rotting organic matter is part of the natural carbon cycle, which the earth can reliably sustain. There are sources of carbon and also carbon sinks. The problem comes when humans artificially add more carbon into the atmosphere than the earth's natural sinks can handle.
Renewable energy will not be a major source in the next 10 years. Low prices for natural gas and crude oil has encouraged consumption of these energy sources, rather than looking for alternatives. There is no incentive to making these work with current prices low and the high price tag for making alternatives work.
