Mark Jacobson is the main author of “The Solutions Project”. It is a plan for all global energy to be produced from wind, water and solar by 2050 (no fossil fuels, no nuclear). The “Leap Manifesto” is based on his work.
The Precourt Institute for Energy plays a major role in Stanford University’s “Natural Gas Initiative” . Information about Jay A. Precourt, who has an extensive background in the oil and gas industry at a senior executive level, is available here, here and here.
The co-chairs of Stanford University’s Precourt Institute for Energy support a mix of solutions, including nuclear (here).
It is puzzling to me that Stanford University’s Precourt Institute for Energy plays a major role in the university’s “Natural Gas Initiative” when they have Mark Jacobson’s “The Solutions Project” right there in front of them.
