Scott Tinker, Chairman of Switch Energy Alliance, spoke to an audience at Oklahoma City University on April 15, 2019. During his presentation, “Sustainable Energy Transitions", Scott discussed the 2.5 billion people in the world who have little or no access to electricity, living in what is called energy poverty. Scott noted the correlation between energy poverty and economic poverty. He noted that energy will not end poverty, but we cannot end poverty without energy.
Using public-sourced data, Scott showed how many developed countries are lowering their carbon dioxide emissions, but emissions are climbing in developing countries, such as China, which are assuming a large share of the world’s manufacturing. The developed countries are essentially moving their emissions to developing countries. Scott also relied on data to show that renewable energy sources alone will not be able to grow quickly enough to solve the world’s need for energy, or address climate change in the time frame the climate models say are needed. He noted the importance of an energy-educated public armed with the objective information needed to make smart energy decisions.
In addition to giving lectures around the world, Dr. Scott Tinker has made guest appearances on several energy-related podcasts.
