“No Miracles Needed”

Mark J

The current edition of Beyond Nuclear board member, Karl Grossman’s “Enviro Close-Up” TV program features renowned energy expert, Dr. Mark Z. Jacobson, discussing his new book,  “No Miracles Needed: How Today’s Technology Can Save Our Climate and Clean Our Air”. It will be broadcast this coming Saturday, May 20, on Free Speech TV on nearly 200 cable TV systems in 40 states and on the major satellite TV networks and other platforms.

“No Miracles Needed” is a follow-up to Jacobson’s 2021 book “100% Clean, Renewable Energy and Storage for Everything”. He provides the very much needed information for a clean, renewable energy future. Dr. Jacobson, Director of the Atmosphere/Energy Program and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University, says: “The world needs to switch away from using fossil fuels to using clean, renewable sources of energy as soon as possible. Failure to do so will lead to accelerated and catastrophic climate damage, loss of biodiversity, and economic, social, and political stability.”

He explains how we can “solve the climate crisis, and at the same time eliminate air pollution and safely secure energy supplies for all — without using ‘miracle’ technology.” Dr. Jacobson details the use of “existing technologies to harness, store and transmit energy from wind, water, and solar sources to ensure reliable electricity and heat supplies.”

And he discusses “which technologies are not needed”—including natural gas, carbon capture and nuclear energy.  Watch:
