Some pingbacks from a blog and its repeaters were dropped here. If you want to brainwash yourself that renewable energy is ready today (or that there even is such a thing as ‘renewable’ energy), the inappropriately named skeptical science has the right article for you.
If you want to listen to the engineers on the subject not directly paid by the industry or leftist governments, costs and complete lack of energy storage capability preclude any possibility of effective mitigation of CO2 output with today’s technology. You just have to build enough, they tell you. What they don’t tell you are true costs. Not that it will stop the morons from forcing it down your throat with an iron fist — to put it mildly. Ask them why it is that if CO2 is destroying everything in the world, new types of far less dangerous nuclear reactors aren’t the main item being promoted, barring that wild hope, why aren’t they even on their lists!??
Loud and ignorant in my opinion. Read the link at your own risk but you won’t come back any smarter.
