139 countries have fully switched to secure energy

Never before in the history of mankind has the role of energy from renewable sources been so crucial. 30 % of global electrical energy is "clean" and produced by sun, wind, tide and other renewable sources, yet it remains at an experimental stage.

Investments in the development of new sources of "clean" energy and modernisation of those already known amount to nearly $ 400 billion. Due to this, harmful emissions have been reduced by 1.1 billion tons per year, and emissions continue to fall.

The desire of mankind for renewable “clean” energy has caused 139 countries to switch to renewable energy sources by 2050, Russia being among them. The demand for energy in all 139 countries is supplied by a wide range of technical solutions: 19.4% - wind farms, 12.9% - sea wind farms, more than 60% - various types of solar stations and power plants, hydropower plants account for about 5%, geothermal, wave and tidal stations make up 2%. Bio-generation stations are not taken into account, because they use biofuels that produce some waste and occupy vast areas as well.

However, the world still comes up against a tough decision as to whether to continue to use nuclear power plants and power stations based on nuclear fusion or not as they cannot be called completely safe.

Roger Aydin I completely agree with Luong Mai Hung Gia. Nuclear fusion is a very safe way of generating power, because the worst that can happen is the reaction simply stopping. And unlike the waste that gets produced by conventional fission plants, fusion waste does not pose any long-term threats, as the activated materials can be recycled/reused within 100 years. You can read this on the iter.org website here: https://www.iter.org/sci/Fusion ITER is the largest experimental fusion experiment that's currently being built. 14 Apr 2019
DJ DRAGON Very good prediction. When this happens, I will congratulate you. 06 Feb 2019
Lương Mai Hưng Gia What do you mean nuclear fusion is not safe? I can clearly tell you know nothing about nuclear fusion by saying it's not safe. If the magnetic confinement fail, the nuclear fusing hydrogen would just expand and cool down and fade away. Just watch Kurzgesagt video on nuclear fusion. 06 Feb 2019
