This talk from AMO director Reinier de Graaf at TEDxRotterdam 2010 is quite interesting. What if we scaled the solutions to our energy crisis in order to fit the whole of Europe? What if we just thought of a new Europe without any country borders but with a global plan to enhance regional development associated with a global trading/solutions system?
The project Roadmap 2050: A Practical Guide to a Prosperous, Low-Carbon Europe, commissioned by the European Climate Foundation, delivers on its title with a radical scheme of integrated green power generation stretching from North Africa to Norway. This is without any doubt a very interesting concept and worth exploring.
