Everybody off the grid!
There is absolutely no need today for large dangerous power plants and expensive transmission lines. All new buildings and houses can, and should, be their own power sources. Solar panels are inefficient but some now work on'daylight', rather than direct sun. Our new roofs should be made from such material and white to reflect the sun, providing some measure of cooling in the hot summers to come. There are window shades and tints that also collect power from the light. And even solar power paint.
Wind and geothermal should also be incorporated into the new home. New storage methods are already available. The most promising I've seen so far is compressed air storage, where excess sun or wind power is used to compress air tanks. That potential energy is stored until needed. But there are many other methods too and undoubtedly many more to come.
There a hundred other 'little' things that can go into the 'new' house: winter air-connected refrigerators, grey-water reusable water systems, home integrated vegetable gardens....and on and on, incorporating new innovations as they come up. Governments and the corporate world must be made to see that such a change on such a massive scale can only lead to unprecedented jobs and economic prosperity, in both the manufacturing and installation of these systems. No electricity bills also means more money in consumers' pockets. These will be the homes of the future, if there is a future. That's why we need them NOW. This is our 'Sputnik moment' . We have to get off coal and oil AND nuclear and let our poor abused planet begin its natural rehabilitation. In the process, we can make our own economic conditions better, providing better lives for our children, and all children to come. We are going down a steep winding road at breakneck speed and a sharp turn is coming up. Let's not miss it.
