Solar power cost $100 per kilowatt hour when energy futurist Ramez Naam entered the world. Last year, the UAE signed a 20-year contract for solar power at four thousandth the cost. For Ramez Naam it’s no longer a question of if renewables take over, it’s a matter of when - and the data proves it. Energy has been mixed with politics from the beginning - so over the next billion seconds, how do we talk ourselves out of our coal culture and into a sustainable future? Ramez Naam makes a convincing case for a future where we profit from the sun.
