Evas, Solar and Energy Storage – Ignoring the science that saves us

Ignorance of science that can save the planet is widespread today. People can be compassionate, work in society and survive – it can even grow – but they still reject the fundamental principles of scientific climate logic. People want to be absolutely sure, for example, that the changes they make to fossil fuels, central power generation, and heritage cars are limited and difficult decisions.

But ignoring science ignores the facts about climate change and the power of renewable technologies.

Cars, trucks, and other means of transportation are the world’s major sources of air pollution. Climate scientists say Vehicle electrification It is one of the best ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. A research team from MIT has released information on an interactive online tool to help people measure the real costs of their car purchases – both for the planet and for their budget. EVs are coming faster than anyone can imagine.

Source: Solar energy – Sun – Infinite and can be accessed anywhere on earth at any time. Yes, it will take about 10 million hectares of land, but only about 0.4% of the US will have enough space for solar photovoltaic (PV) to supply all of the country’s electricity.

Energy storage It is improving and creating long-term benefits and reliability for consumers. It is important for the whole grid – sometimes within a single property – because it includes energy resources and can be used as a generation, transfer or distribution asset. As a complementary technology, it helps to save consumers’ money, improve reliability and robustness, integrate generational sources, and reduce environmental impact.

If renewable energy technology is so big, why do so many people deny the potential in our lives?

Ignoring science – denying in trouble

In a recent book, public health expert Sarah Gorman and psychiatrist Jack Gorman argue that disregarding scientific evidence can have serious consequences. Their show helps us understand why we believe that sustainable energy sources, such as EVs, solar and energy storage, are bad.

To deny the grave – why do we ignore the science that saves us The first issue of 2016 will be updated. The review examines the psychological causes of self-denial; The authors conclude that common, evolutionary, and adaptive tendencies affect us. If we expand their argument, the cost of fluctuating on renewable energy technologies is so high that we need to make the most of it – often – if we can overcome resistance and create a citizenry that can distinguish scientific realities from hype.

Here are some introductions to do just that provided by the authors Denial to the grave.

We want to think about that Charismatic leaders Anti-science activities are only for people who have misconceptions about health and safety. Gormans underestimated this idea and instead thought that such people were really selfish, but they would benefit greatly from spreading false ideas. The voices of activists such as Gretta Tunberg and Antonio Guterres have the likes of Peter Dussberg, Andrew Wakefield, Jenny McCarthy, Gills-Eric Seralini, and Wayne Lapier. Such leaders influence their listeners to make decisions or to adopt beliefs that are not their own.

Verification bias It refers to our tendency to dwell on information that is consistent with what we already know to be true. Just look at the world’s energy system, which must be green for sustainable development. However, green energy development is based on human knowledge about its benefits compared to other forms of energy development. The fact that a power candidate is truly ‘green’ is based on many factors, from input to output, that involve many costs and benefits. Cognitive bias can lead to misleading language and lead to chronic decision-making that only ignores the science of renewable technologies.

Ignoring the science of sustainable energy technology can often involve Investigate rationality and fill in the gaps of ignorance, According to Gorman and Gorman. They say that it is good to know how to be reasonable, but people are often too quick to do so. People often find it difficult to sit down and take a chance. Explaining ways to better understand true rationality can be done by examining the criteria for rationale – strength, consistency, diversity, temporality, biological efficiency, persuasion, consistency, experimentation and example. Necessary response to those criteria In previous studies or smart grids, we have shown a balance between supply and demand effectiveness in a region. Today, to fill knowledge gaps, such analyzes include carbon dioxide emissions, energy consumption, and economic growth.

Since it is impossible to keep track of the vast majority of scientific articles being published, we have been using different sources (e.g. CleanTechnica 2) To filter in them. Gorman and Gorman argue that the people should win one Avoid complications To judge separately what scientific publications are necessary. In the world of EVA, solar, and energy storage, this means to appreciate the complex, dynamic, and interconnected relationships that occur in complex systems or problems. Basic understanding and scientific discoveries in renewable energy in new materials and chemical processes bring new energy technologies and performance standards – it is important to stay up-to-date on these innovations to gain scientific knowledge from renewable energy.

It is common today to hear people solve problems through the risk-reward formula. Sometimes, we work on those equations based on distortions Risk Awareness and Opportunity. Risk awareness is subject to change depending on the type of disaster, and many people still consider renewables to be dangerous work. However, over the past decade, the increase in lithium-ion battery production has reduced costs by 85%, making commercial vehicles and energy storage the first in history. A.D. Comparing energy storage needs and priorities in 2010 and 2021, important applications continue to emerge, including the development of heavy-duty vehicles, railroads, shipping, aviation and renewable energy, and grid storage.

Ignoring the crisis or zero on pure technologies

The scientific process is slow and subtle. Analyzing claims can lead to peer-reviewed consensus, and ultimately, the scientific community joins the common reality that it is a scientific fact. Misunderstandings are all too common in today’s world, and in recent decades there has been a resurgence of science fiction. Especially in political polarization, the audience tends to embrace the whole body of faith rather than examine each faith individually.

Studies show that people in the United States have a high regard for science and the ability to do many things that benefit individuals. With the financial support of agencies such as the EPA, the scientific profession can be restored to full strength. Gorman and Gorman argue that “science to support policy should be considered non-political and strong, based on information-based research.” We need to end censorship, dismissal, and dismissal of scientists whose findings are inconvenient for politicians.
