this is fascinating and awe-inspiring. seeing these power sources and the information on them demonstrates the real possibilities for renewable energy which can sometimes feel elusive. i wish the information( about costs, wattages produced, percentages of needed energy use, etc.) had been more consistent among the descriptions to be able to more easily compare them
I like how this story shows the scale of both the megawatts and the coming decades. Then shows what really large scale alternative power looks like. I think it could be more reflective on what it would mean to cover the earth with these technologies, but that was not the thrust of this one.
