100% Global Renewable Energy Plan- The Solutions Project
Worth 75 Points toward your final grade
Some of you may have been fortunate enough to see Stanford University Professor Mark Jacobson’s
lecture at the Kirsch Center for Environmental Studies A FEW YEARS AGO . It was quite a compelling
presentation. Because this is a class about Energy and its impact on the Environment and Society, I
wanted you to take a look at Mark Jacobson’s Solutions Project plan to make the World 100%
Renewable Energy by 2050.

the plan work.
