How Germany got to 40 percent renewable electricity
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Germany reaches forty percent renewable energy. What can we learn from that energy transition? I'm NPR chief meteorologist Paul hutler. This is climate cats. Germany produced forty percent of its electric power from renewables in twenty eighteen emissions. There are on pace to fall sixty two percent from nineteen ninety levels by twenty fifty. That's an unthinkable greenhouse gas reduction pace here in the US. But in Germany, many say that's not fast enough. Toby mature is founder and director of energy consultant e three analytics in Berlin, we talked via Skype about power and emissions trends in Germany wind power is the largest slice of the pie. But one of the remarkable things of Germany's overall energy transition is that they've succeeded where a lot of other countries in a lot of other parts of the world haven't done as well. And that's really diversifying as fully the different sources of renewable energy that they draw from. So it's not just wind. Not just solar. They've really gone for the full basket of domestically available renewable resources. So Germany is well ahead of the US. With government action on climate how about public opinion on climate solutions. How is it different? From the US awareness is dawning more and more that climate is starting to have very real impacts on things like agricultural output. Yeah. We had our dry summer in decades in Germany and a lot of farmers have seen reduced yields pretty much across the board. And when it starts to really have those kinds of across the board impacts on rural communities on farmers on on on average citizens through higher food prices people. I think recognize the need here more. So than in North America. I think in general for really taking action on climate change. I think in Germany in particular. They've also seen the benefits of taking climate change seriously by investing in the energy transition. They've been able to create a lot of jobs, and that I think has been really critical ingredient to maintaining public support at such high levels us. Site, Germany as a leader in the energy transition much farther, along than the US, what can the US learn about what Germany has done so far one of the key ingredients to making it work and also to making it popular has been the citizens can invest themselves. So it's not just large utility companies or large foreign investors building big projects to achieve the goals at the government sets out in the beginning. The whole transition was driven very much from the bottom up by individuals and communities and farmers who could put their own money on the table. Go to the Bank at alone and invest in new sources of generation and earn a decent return doing. So I think that's really one of the key ingredients that many other countries have continued to struggle to get right is making it such that the participation can be broad in the energy transition. And I think that's really at the heart of what's made Germany, so successful Toby tour founder and director of energy. Consultant E three analytics in Berlin. Thanks for sharing your insight today. Thanks ball. A pleasure. My name is Shannon Mortenson. And I am the city administrator for the city of Warren, which is in the northwest corner of the state population of sixteen hundred people for three years, we've traveled over Germany learn what they're doing for climate protection measures in the North Rhine-Westphalia state. And that really is kind of what catapulted how we approach energy conservation and sustainability in Warren now, you know, you've traveled over to Germany you've learned what they're doing. And it just gives you some credence in what you're doing back in your community. People are interested. It's a conversation starter are shining project right now is we are doing thermal imaging with drones with Northland college. Our plan is to take that data allow residents to come in and see where their energy losses. So they can do the energy upgrades. They need to their homes as long as they see a direct benefit. They are all on board. I mean, there's climate change is happening. Of course, you can have lots of different conversations on your thoughts on climate change. But something is happening.

"A big words route fans because words with living to eighty s motion the romantic poets died when they were thirty, but where's with lives into Victorian era, and he starts out as a radical rubbing, the French revolution says bliss was it in that time to be alive, but pay to be young was very heaven. And then he sees it all goes wrong. And he writes, this this long poem called the prelude, which he doesn't publish in his lifetime. He writes, this long poem the history of of his thought, and it's a history that ends with him becoming a Christian because he realizes that in this logic in in taking out everything. But logic, you have destroyed the human you've destroyed the human soul will not just this is what Chester's instead is a madman is not the. Manners lost his reason. He's the man who's lost everything. And this is this is just basic neuro science, right? I mean, people who are sociopathic very often are people who are the most reason people who who just don't have any moral preconceptions their rules that find them. John typically talk. So it's it is true that this picture of the enlightenment is disconnected from its Christian roots is simple nonsense. I mean, the fact is that even the very idea of natural rights supposed to natural law that starts with Hugo Grotius. I mean, it's Grotius really starts talking about that particularly in the middle of these religious wars. He saying, well, we have a right to practice. Our religion the church didn't like roaches very much of the time. But he's already. I mean, it's it's that logic deletes the peace of Westphalia, and the all these religions have to tolerate each other within the common framework of we keep a central values the same, but you can practice, basically, however, you want and the religious minority must be protected, and it's from that religious schism that emerges the idea of these natural rights that span religions and extend to beyond what the church may want to give you at the time. So it's this constant interplay in the west between religion and reason and their their intention, but they're also a mutual support system. You can't have reason without the religion. But undergirds at reason is based on certain fundamental premises. Freedom of the will the ability to think beyond your biology the capacity be convinced by somebody else's. Argument not by meter self interest. Right. These are based in idea of a discoverable logical universe that has certain rules, and you being endowed with the creative capacity of God. When God says your made in his image. That's what he means has so far in the bible. And when it says, God is gonna make man as image Gaza lead on one thing, and that's create Ryan someone says the guy that you're gonna be now made in God's image. It doesn't mean that you're going to be able to make your own morality. It means that you're going to be able to create you're going to be able to choose in the same way that God creates and chooses your fundamental factor in the forwarding of creation itself. This is why I think the scientific revolution begins with the burning Bush because it's it's that moment when basically man says, oh, I get it. I'm in an interplay them in a dialogue with something. That is like me in the fact that it is has reason actually it actually makes sense it actually matters and this alive like me. And I just think that there is no scientific revolution. Without that moment. I really there's not enough. Oh, max for me too. Gotta hit it before you could walk in trick. Trick believable. Unbelievable. I wanna talk.

In Africa, climate challenges and opportunities
"Support for climate cast comes from Bank of America as one of the largest global financial institutions Bank of America is in a unique position to help society. Transition to a low-carbon economy Bank of America NA member FDIC. Climate challenges and opportunities in Africa. I'm MPR chief meteorologist, Paul hunter. This is climate cast. You know, it's fourteen thousand miles from Capetown South Africa to Minnesota but climate changes in sensitive climate zones. Like Africa can have a much wider impact. I talked about that with Matt Brown. He's the nature conservancies regional managing director for Africa. You know, a lot of the East African countries are seeing significant changes in the rainfall patterns, maybe as predicted to get quite drier. And there's a lot of food security issues and north and central Africa. So Africa's a big place Paul. There's fifty four countries over two thousand languages as you know. So it's a little bit of different shifts and impacts in different parts of the continent. So how do you decide which countries need the most resources we looked largely at where we can improve large intact systems that have the ability to be more resilient to climate change. And allow species to move and shift protection is has a higher return on investment than restoration. So a lot of our work is focused on. On finding intact ecosystems, and they all include people, of course. But finding ways to make sure that those systems persist over time like many journalists this year met we reported on Cape Town's, low reservoir levels earlier in the year. I'm curious about your perspective on how that played out this year. And as the rainy season finally arrived, similar to California. There's a lot of issue with agricultural offtake both for fruits as well as for vineyards. And then there's the consumption domestically the days euro proclamation in Cape Town brought a lot of awareness to water issues and water scarcity, but I think it helped create more willingness for behavior change, but the threat is still out there as it was yesterday. So we're we're moving out quickly to put better adaptation and better practices in place to try and secure water for the long term. And I asked this question to a lot of different people in a lot of different ways. But we're seeing climate change impact the hydrologic cycle where it's raining and how hard it's. Raining is shifting. How important is water in the work that you're doing water is critical in the work that we do. And so the changes in the hydrologic cycle as a result of warming. Global temperatures can be pretty catastrophic unless we are able to reduce that amount and manage the movement of wildlife access to water for people living in urban environments and have better buffer systems. I do feel like that there's a lot of positive interventions that we can pursue but the water cycle, and how hydrology is potentially going to be impacted is quite severe. If we just sit back and maintain a business as usual scenario, Matt Brown nature conservancy regional managing director for Africa. Thanks for sharing your perspective today. Thank you, all my name is Shannon Mortenson. And I am the city administrator for the city of Warren, which is in the northwest corner of the state population of sixteen hundred people for three years, we've traveled over Germany learn what they're doing for climate protection measures in the North Rhine-Westphalia state. And then they come over here. See what we're doing? You know, one of it uses low hanging fruit that we learned the first year we were in Germany was they don't have any paper products, plastic product styrofoam products. So when we came back to the city, all we removed all of that. So now just kind of started it, and then now we have a mandatory curbside recycling program, but are shining project right now is we are doing thermal imaging with drones with Northland college. Our plan is to take that data allow residents to come in and see where their energy losses. So they can do the energy upgrades. They need to their homes as long as they see a direct benefit. They are all on board. When we were in Germany, you know, they would always say five hundred years from thousand years from now they're not doing their energy transition right now because of the here and now it's for generations later. And I guess that's why I think that this is important. Also is I want my great great grandchildren to enjoy the same quality life in northwestern Minnesota that we have and in the whole country the whole world. And if it isn't that much of an effort to change our life is could make a difference for future generations. I don't know what's wrong with that. That's climate cast.

Look at that that looks great German spec that looks nice man. That's got good wheels on it too. It's the right color. These things are fucking hot in Callie right now.

This is still a rear engine car. You know, like there's always going to be a market for it. So I don't think they're the values of them are going to fall off a cliff. So if you've got one and you can make it something you wanna drive and keep it going, then? Yeah, fucking do it, especially within the family, like dude. Keeping the family. Hell yeah, thanks. Jack.
