Solar And Wind Power Could Supply 100% Of US Energy By 2026

Wind Turbines and Solar PanelsThe 1973 movie Soylent Green predicted that due to over-population, we will be happily unaware and dining on humans in the year 2022. Four years after that, according to an article on Treehugger.com, the US could be getting 100% of its electricity from renewable wind and solar sources. Meeting this 100% renewable goal would be kind of simple: implement wind turbines and solar panels at the same rate as the Germans and do it to scale.

(Note: We’re pretty sure that our diet of Soylent Green from 2022 – 2026 was not factored into meeting this goal.)
