By Christian Synwoldt

Ausgereizte oder ausgereifte Argumente?: Christian Synwoldt bietet sachliche Orientierung in einer emotional geführten Energiedebatte

Natürliche Ressourcen für die Energiegewinnung werden knapp - wir wissen das. Doch was once tun? Sind neue Technologien und Energieeffizienz der Königsweg zu einer nachhaltigen Energieversorgung? Können Kohlekraftwerke der nächsten new release klimaneutral arbeiten? Ist Photovoltaik der Heilige Gral der Stromerzeugung? Oft gibt es auf diese Fragen nur einseitige, interessengeleitete Antworten. Christian Synwoldt zeigt nun in seinem Buch Umdenken: Clevere Lösungen für die Energiezukunft, Hintergründe und info, die in der Diskussion um eine nachhaltige Energieversorgung regelmäßig unter den Tisch fallen und stellt dabei bequeme Standpunkte in Frage.

Im Fokus: Ökologische, wirtschaftliche, politische und gesellschaftliche Folgen
In den Mittelpunkt stellt der Autor die ökologischen, wirtschaftlichen, politischen und gesellschaftlichen Folgen des (unvermeidbaren) Umbaus der Energieerzeugung - und nicht etwa die (vermeintlichen) Vor- und Nachteile bestimmter Technologien. Synwoldt befasst sich neben den überaus erfolgreichen Errungenschaften auch mit den negativen Konsequenzen des Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetzes und den Umtrieben an der Leipziger Strombörse. Ebenso geht er auf die oft verschwiegenen Probleme des Netzausbaus und die unaufrichtigen Argumente beim Kostenvergleich zwischen konventioneller und regenerativer Stromerzeugung ein. So hinterfragt er auch allseits bekannte Aussagen wie: Der Ausstieg aus der Kernenergie führt zu höheren Strompreisen

Synwoldt sprengt so manche Argumentationskette
In dem Kapitel Alter Wein in neuen Schläuchen fragt Christian Synwoldt nach den Möglichkeiten von New Oil und New Gas, von Kohlestrom und Kernkraft. In dem Kapitel Die Zukunft hat bereits begonnen stellt er dann die Energiewende ganz in den Mittelpunkt, um im Anschluss Aspekte der Wirtschaftlichkeit und Effizienz zu diskutieren. Das Buch Umdenken: Clevere Lösungen für die Energiezukunft stellt gewohnte Ansichten auf den Prüfstand und sprengt so manche Argumentationskette. Der Autor schildert und bewertet die gesellschaftlichen, politischen und ökonomischen Voraussetzungen einer gelingenden, echten Energiewende und gibt dem Leser schlagkräftige Argumente für die Energiediskussion an die Hand.
