Hope Fading For Renewable Energy

December 10, 2008

Poland (ChattahBox) – A new study released at the UN climate talks suggest that experts are becoming less convinced in renewable energy as the problems with the economy worsen, and the full extent of carbon reductions becomes apparent.

“As the climate crisis deepens they could be becoming less optimistic that individual technologies may be able to solve the problem,” said Eric Whan of Globescan, the company responsible for the survey,.

This study spread over 115 countries and targeted senior members of once vocal groups dedicated to renewable energy and alternative fuel, giving a grim view of the future of such products, and the motivation to continue research in a time where leaders are finally ready to listen.

The survey showed that over the last year confidence in renewable energy sources like solar power, wind power, and hydrogen power are dropping, and with it, it’s fear that support will drop as well.

But according to Yvo de Boer, the UN is still dedicated in it’s talks on coming to agreements on how to fight climate change, especially in encouraging developing nations not to make the same mistakes we did.

“We’re at a very important moment in time, and at a very important moment of political stock taking.”
