The case for Solar Electricity.

Our reliance on fossil fuels has created possibly the most serious problem facing the world.   Global climate change can be traced back to the increasing carbon dioxide (CO2) levels.   Scientists now agree that unchecked it will cause a global temperature increase   of between 2 and 6 degrees Centigrade over the next century

Most of our energy is currently generated by burning fossil fuels   The energy sources that do not generate CO2 are nuclear, hydro, wind, geothermal, tidal, and solar. Nuclear energy has left a legacy of radioactive waste, and its safety record shows that it is not the answer.   Globally, the potential of wind, hydro, and tidal is ultimately far less than solar energy.  

The answer is worldwide adoption of solar energy from photovoltaic cells.  This will include not only photovoltaic (PV) electricity, but also electrically-synthesised fuels - since these can be transported and stored.  

Organic and thin-film PV cells offer the hope of doing this cheaply enough, with large scale production, and within the necessary timescale of thirty years.
