Global warming, air pollution, and energy insecurity are three of the most significant problems facing the world today. This talk discusses a technical and economic plan to solve these problems by powering 100% of the world, individual countries, and states for all purposes, including electricity, transportation, industry, and heating/cooling, with wind, water, and sunlight (WWS), within 20-40 years.
