Climate Change Could Cause Power Blackouts Worldwide [YN]

The record heat waves and devastating droughts that accompany climate change could also hurt the world’s electricity production, according to a new study. For 98 percent of the world’s power plants, that’s a problem and could result in a 30 percent decrease in electricity production some months at most power stations. Natural water flow is needed to generate energy from hydroelectric plants, and cold water is essential  for cooling at any thermal power plant—nuclear, natural gas, biomass, or even a solar power plant that uses the sun to convert water into steam to drive a generator.
