Elon Musk Shows Us the Size of Solar Panels that can Power the Earth - So Small
You'd think humanity is stupid to have not realized this since day one and instead chose to destroy earth with fossil fuel. Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk gave a talk on December 15 at the American Geophysical Union meeting saying: "You could take a corner of Utah and Nevada and power the entire United States with solar power."
He also delivered another talk at the Université de Paris Panthéon Sorbonne during the climate talks on December 2 saying: "The important thing to appreciate is if let's say the only thing we had was solar energy, that that was the only power source, if you just took a small section of Spain, you could power all of Europe. It's a very small amount of area that's actually needed to generate the electricity we need to power civilization, or in the case of the US, a little corner of Nevada or Utah, power the entire United States."
Well, he was right. Look at the entire earth and see what is required with no carbon emission at all.
