Plano de energia verde global de $10 biliões de Musk
April 6, 2023 -
O magnate empresarial Elon Musk acha que o mundo pode ser
inteiramente convertido para energia limpa em 20 anos, com um custo
de $10 biliões – $4 biliões menos que manter os combustíveis fósseis.
Tesla owner Elon Musk believes the world can be entirely converted to clean energy with $10 trillion worth of investment over 20 years.
Remaining on fossil fuels, he argues, would cost $14 trillion over the same time period.
Although the $10 trillion investment cost of a cleaner world is high, Musk says that is a fraction of the $100 trillion global economy, and even less when spread out over two decades – 0.5% of the global economy.
During peaks, the world would need to extract 3.3 gigatons of earth every year to mine the metals needed for the transition to an electric future, much less than the 15.5 gigatons that are currently extracted for the fossil fuel industry.
In summing up, Tesla says an electrified and sustainable future is technically feasible and requires less investment and less material extraction than continuing with today’s unsustainable energy economy.
