Global100RE Press Release: 

Three years after Fukushima: 100% renewable energy is only a matter of political will

Hamburg, 11 March 2014 - Three years after the Fukushima/Daiichi nuclear disaster, the Global100RE Ambassadors are highlighting the need to refrain from using hazardous nuclear and fossil energy sources and instead shift towards 100% renewable energy.

If human beings are to preserve modernity and planetary habitability, we must soon shift to 100% renewable energy in all sectors.

The burning of fossil fuels is the main reason behind a 40% increase in CO2 concentrations since the industrial revolution (IPCC 2013). To avoid a further growth of greenhouse gas concentration, a stop of greenhouse gas emission is urgently necessary. Therefore a sustainable and efficient energy system is the prerequisite for achieving the internationally agreed upon climate protection target.
