Expert blasts 'horrible' renewable energy ideas  

An environmental expert from Rockefeller University in New York says renewable energy sources such as wind, solar and biomass are environmentally destructive.

Jesse Ausubel is director of Rockefeller’s human environment program and is in Adelaide today for a petroleum industry conference.

He says the energy industry should move away from coal and focus on natural gas and uranium.

Mr Ausubel says renewable energy sources, such as crops which are grown for biomass energy production rather than food, cover too much land.

“I want more land left for nature,” he said.

“I don’t want hundreds of millions of hectares around the world to go, to provide whiskey for my Toyota.

“I think it’s a horrible, horrible idea.”
