100% solar. Hermann Scheer, in his new book, "Energy Imperative" details the math to prove how many solar cells it would take to power the whole earth, 100% on solar.

You will be surprised how few solar panels it would take to run every home, business, electric train, everything on earth with just solar.

All it will take is enough solar cells to cover an area the size of France.

We could mount them in a desert.

However, it would be more democratic & more powerful to mount those solar cells on the roofs of millions of private homes in every city.

This would give the working people more economic & ecological power.

Plus it is better to harvest the energy at the point it is going to be used: homes. That saves the 15% that is lost in transmission.
