This is an unofficial explainer video I created for a college project. I decided to gear it toward TheSolutionsProject.org. The assets went from Adobe Illustrator to After Effects. This animation explains the different types of energy such as, fossil fuels, biomass, nuclear and renewables.

But renewable energy sources don’t have the power to produce that much energy. Most renewable sources lose more energy than they can produce, for example OTEC or a light bulb that only uses 5% of the energy and the other 95% is lost (heat).

Hi, there are one issue in you presentation: Nuclear is not generated by fusion (uses Hydrogen as fuel) but is fission (uses Uranium as fuel), Fission is exactly the opposite of Fusion.

Using fuel results in production of carbon dioxide which harms the planet we need to live on. U are old and sick and don't care but young people who want to look and feel healthy do care.

Renewable energy has never generated one watt of base load synchronous power ever. So if you are going to use renewables to power the world when will the engineering and ability to provide base load renewable power be perfected ???? Renewable energy like your nuclear fusion reactors is all bull shit.

NEW HOME SOLAR ENERGY SYSTEM : The '20k solar panel system' is coming to an end. Wall street confirms all share holders are selling hard after this weird cheap solution popped on the radar... And they have every reason to... Over 18,000 Patriots are using the system in their homes... (and that's just in the last three months) hey get unlimited energy for less than 80 cents a day... Without paying one nickel more to their electricity provider! If you’re skeptical... Just watch this short video... and you’ll be able to cut your power bills to almost ZERO in just 45 minutes!

The answer is modern monetary theory. We can use money to move real resources between countries and sectors for the betterment of our planet. Since the "free market" only acts when there's profit involved, we will need the government's help to do the heavy lifting for society's gains and benefit. Not just for the capitalists.

Great video, but at 0:50 it says nuclear fusion. This should be fission, surely? I hate being pedantic, but there's quite a difference, especially if some people are just learning this stuff.

You are right. Nuclear fusion happens in the sun, when it converts hydrogen ( Z=1) in Helium (Z=2) by fusing two H atoms into one He atom. Nuclear fission is the process where the atom of a certain radioactive element is torn apart. Thanks for reminding everyone.

Paul Swanee Nothing is renewable because the universe is in constant diffusion. So technically while you might be correct, why make an objection about this. Nothing “technically” is renewable, judging how the sun provides most of the other natural energy’s. And why use nuclear energy if you can get the same results without those side effects. It’s not like we’re powering a spaceship or something.
Paul Swanee

+Dane Bliss Design How can you possibly claim that nuclear fusion is not renewable, yet solar is? The sun literally runs on nuclear fusion. The uses a finite amount of hydrogen to convert potential energy stored in the nucleus of hydrogen atoms into electromagnetic energy in the form of infrared (heat energy) and other light energy (including visible light waves). It doesn't make any sense to claim that solar energy is any more renewable than fusion, when the products that solar uses are only possible from nuclear fusion. To claim that the sun is renewable is to claim that stars, never run out of fuel, which is proven to be wrong. Sure it wont run out of fuel in our generation, but then neither will hydrogen, uranium or thorium in the earth that allows for fusion and fission production. This video is wrong on so many levels from classification of terminology to what is actually occurring and what could be the future of energy in the world. It would be a massive mistake for humanity to cast aside nuclear technology, as this science allows us to discover possibilities that no other source offers. Solutions for food problems like food irradiation or isotopic radiation of contaminated water, and then of course you also have the fact that nuclear energy presents the greatest release of energy in the known universe. It would be insanity to cast aside this technology.

Clemens 2 years ago
Of course I will come over. I didn't even see half of the country yet. And I really love beautiful landscapes (without nuclear power stations :p). I think the Brexit was a little bit more than only about immigration. We already got many renewable sources. It's accounting for 33% of our energy usage. And maybe we're achieving 40% in 2020. Britain therefore has really good wind resources and a great renewable potential. It already has 25% renewables. Very good. We will see what the future brings. ;)
JactheGamer 2 years ago
Clemens Ok thanks your welcome, i hope you have a great life where you live. I will miss the EU but it was all up to Imigration. Anytime you want to come over, North Wales is very beutiful. We may not be the biggest country in the UK but we ahve big castles and views. If come over in the early 2020s you may see a new nucleat power station being built to a decommisioned one in north Anglesey. I know what is going on in countrys like Germany, getting rid of nuclear means they have to use a lot of fossil fuels until they have enough renewable sources. Anyway thanks for this discussion i wish you the best.
Clemens 2 years ago
JactheGamer It is always important to have a good discussion. I'm not interested in insulting a person over his/her views. I'm only interested in exchanging different opinions or if I'm lucky also the same ones. Unfortunately many on the internet are not as polite as you are. So I also enjoyed this discussion. We will see what the future brings. At least nuclear is better than coal...Politicians in my country already decided to not support nuclear anymore but they have to do the same with coal now. Hope Britain is doing well in the future too although it's a bummer they left the EU. Visiting it was always a nice experience.
JactheGamer 2 years ago
Clemens This has been a very civilized discussion if compare it with the rest of youtube. We may have diffrent views on whats best for our diffrent countrys. Mine is focusing on nuclear yours may be going 100% renewable. Yours may have a high amount of Greenpeace memebers mine has a lot of Pro-Nuclear groups. Hope youre country does well and i hope you all the best.

But what this doesn't say one thing about is all of the land being plowed for these methods, that don't work very well.... solar and wind are so unreliable. It doesn't mention how many birds/bats get killed with the wind turbines. These facts are very very one sided. Yes there need to be changes, but when teaching give the full story on everything.
Vincent Robinette
Vincent Robinette 3 months ago
The video does touch on a good solution: the super grid, where all the electrical networks of all the countries tied together. That means, that somewhere in the world, the sun is shining, and/or the wind is blowing. That would greatly reduce the amount of electrical energy storage needed per capita, to maintain 24/7 power to the entire world. I like the idea of photovoltaic solar the best, it's probably the safest thing for wild life. Turbines have been known for occasional bird strikes, and concentrated solar has roasted a bird or two in mid flight. Rare, but not unheard of. The question is, how do we get that electricity across the major oceans, to interconnect all the electrical grids in the world? The smaller the local area, the more electrical energy storage needed per kWh of produced, and consumed power, because of the intermittency of renewable sources.(wind, solar). The more spread out, the better.

Yes solar and wind is a little unreliable. That's why we need battery storage and electric cars. Interestingly nobody mentions either what problems fossil fuels are causing. Otherwise we wouldn't use them so much. I mean it seems to be that nobody ever cared about the massive oil catastrophes that are occurring from time to time or how bad emissions from coal power plants for people are. Compared to that birds or bats are the least problems with have. Although I agree with you that they should encourage better safety measures for these animals.

Trump is going to bring back coal. First he has to tear down all the wind farms and solar panels, replace all LED's with incandsent lights, turn back energy efficiency standards 40 years, and let's not forget convert natural gas burning plants back to coal. It would help if he could replace diesel trains with steam powered ones. LOL.
