The only winner in the renewable energy sweepstakes is BIG Government.
Those who believe in the existence of adequate non-fossil alternatives essential to achieve a "carbon-neutral" U.S. — much less global — energy balance anytime soon, or at any cost, are dreadfully misguided.
It is expensive, heavily subsidized (a hidden tax), unreliable, causes negative health impacts, kills large birds of prey and bats and can be maddening to people who live nearby. They're bad for the military too.
Intermittent wind and solar can't keep the shelves stocked and people moving.
Batteries are too expensive to back up intermittent wind and solar.
What about wind and solar? We feel like they’re clean because we don’t burn them. Well… not directly. But, let’s be real.
"Clean" energy is not so simple. WATCH NOW.
The extensive intermittency of renewable power makes any cost savings irrelevant, because the cost to overcome the intermittency is astronomical.
By Mary Kay Barton: Big wind and solar are neither Green, nor efficient.
There's nothing "clean," nor "green" about locating and extracting all the lithium, cobalt and rare-earth's these schemes require.
Wind and solar aren't an efficient way to power the grid on a nice day. When extreme weather strikes they are outright dangerous.
Climate alarmists must prove expensive, weather-dependent energy is green and sustainable
Now we have Colorado's governor, legislature, public utility commission and power utility Xcel all lined up and ready to roll over the people of Colorado.
This 2019 new year of political climate change now finds green energy lobbies lining up to extract more subsidy gratitude from an indebted Democrat House majority.
Gambling on intermittent power sources for 100% of your juice is hugely risky... and irresponsible.
