Abstract

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the public misconceptions of renewables. Plainly infant or youthful renewable have not built up sufficient funds for the expert PR employed by the multinational corporations. There are a few scientists who stress various natural, imponderable causes of climate change: variations in solar radiation, suggested solar cycles ranging from 90 years to 27 days; the cooling effect of volcanic eruptions; movement of the earth's tectonic plates; the unpredictable circumpolar jet stream; possible redirection of the Gulf Stream; or total failure of its pump. Possibly due to anti-propaganda, the public is unaware that renewables are viable.
