Gore frenzy in Lissabon

Two days ago Al Gore was i Lissabon to show his movie and give a talk. Going for the talk was something like 500€!

The day after (ie yesterday) Jornal de Negocios was full with articles about climate chaneg and related issues. The editorial said that it is bit too convenient to only put the blame on Bush. In stead we all contribute to the global warming so we all should contribute to get on the green wagon.

Also, RPT1 had a long interview with plenty of slides with some Portuguese scientists from various field describing what is happening, what is the cause and what we can do about it.

In short Gore frenzy!
Hope it will last, not just because of Gore.

49% renewables in Portugal, wow!
where did you get that figure from?
most of that is hydroelectric, right? the remaining 51% are fossil fuels...

is that 49% of total energy consumption or 49% of consumed electricity?

i Sweden 49% of total energy comes from nuclear power (our own). sad, real sad. we have had so much problem with nuclear power plants, they are turned off half the time because something is not working, so I guess there never will be any serious thoughts of building any more of those in Sweden ...

I think that was 45 and not 49, sorry, its only refering to the Electric Consumption, not transportations and so.

I saw in expresso that renewables are 6% of the total energy consumption in Portugal and 5% in EU15 and 2% in USA.
