Description

With the South African government wanting to invest in fracking to export natural gas and signing a deal with Russia to build 8 nuclear reactors by 2030, renewable energy seems to be last on the list however, renewable energy investment seems to be the answer to avoid climate change, risks to people’s health and environmental damage but it is still a seemingly long road to developing this green future. Nina Oosthuizen catches up with the founder and director of the Green Energy Institute at the Lewis and Clark Law School in the US, Associate Professor Melissa Powers, who explains the global energy story and why South Africa should consider renewable and sustainable energy sources.
