Professor Andrew Blakers (pictured) from Canberra's Australian National University is an informed advocate of solar power and has written about that on The Conversation in a piece entitled: "Really Australia, it's not that hard: 10 reasons why renewable energy is the future".
In a relatively short story, in which he makes just 10 points, the professor explains how Australia can remove most all its carbon dioxide emissions and totally eliminate fossil fuels from the country's energy agenda.
Self-interest, he explains, is the one issue that is standing between us and a near emissions-free future.

Some have questioned the ANU report, but most acknowledge the caveat that politics doesn't necessarily have to support the push to renewable energy rather, not stand in its way by introducing policies that frustrate the introduction and use of primarily solar and wind power.
Professor Blakers says that just like smoking, our fossil fuel powered energy infrastructure must go.
