Nivela Director speaks on TV about the link between people and renewables

We need to leave behind the notion that in order to secure energy for development we need to delay the transition to renewable energy

I was invited to participate in a Deutsche Welle TV program where I made the case for renewables in a context of political turmoil. Here is the core argument: Given the worsening geopolitics of fossil fuels, the harm of dirty people on people and the climate, it is time for citizens to tell governments why we benefit from a transition to economies that are based on renewable energy, not fossil fuels. Can and should be the game changer this decade. What kind of development do we want?
