Sad to see dax source pearl clutching when he uses q sources on the reg

He really is not very good at this...

 :lol: :lol:

That's a history lesson, what does that have to do with current policy and situations that are occuring right now?  Nothing

I hate to do this to you dax because I know how hard you cape for the right, but you may want to look into what's going on with Trump and clean/renewable energy.

You do know that DJT's uncle ended up with all of Tesla's work, notes, etc., correct?

Stay tuned old timer.

I've only got 3 monitors in my home office, plus a projection screen.   Do I need to wire my home sports bar screens into this set up so I can monitor all the thing I need to "stay tuned" on??   Mrs. Dax ain't gonna allow the living room TV and her office, so I got 6 total.

Sorry but Dax has been telling us FOR YEARS, that stuff like this would never happen. How bad does that make him look, wow, pretty bad. Considering he will see real change in his lifetime, I guess lots of boomers go through that tho.

Yes, “Green Energy” has proven so impactful and effective for Germany that they not only need 1 but now 2 natural gas pipelines from Vlad Putin and Gazprom.

Sys didn’t you show that solar energy is on track to be super rough ridin' cheap in the near term?  Why do we need nuclear, not enough capacity from solar alone?

From what I understand about nuclear and climate change...two different topics one is don't shut down existing plants (Germany),  two is maybe you can make zero emissions cheaper (need less total renewable generation capacity therefore lower capital costs) with some nuclear baseload in the carbon free mix.  But maybe energy storage will win out for the baseload portion or natty gas with carbon capture.

yeah, there are some carbon activists that want to shut down existing plants and aoc has at least flirted (or more) with that in the past so it's good to see her turning a new leaf.

right now it's not really economical to build new nuclear plants because they're all basically custom builds and there's no political will to force them into production.  it probably could be economical to build if someone would commit to building a bunch of them with some sort of standardized, modular design, but that seems pretty unlikely to happen anytime soon.

if it was something that was politically possible, i'd be happy to see more nuclear.  it has a lot of advantages.

Good luck with all of that guys.   The Crescent Dunes solar generation station in Nevada was shut down last year for 1.  Failure to meet contracted power output requirements 2.  MWh production was (check notes) 4x the cost per MWh production of more conventional power plants.

$737 million in U.S. gov't loan guarantees at stack.  Waah-waa-waaaahhhh

They're gonna try again down the road  :crossfingers: :crossfingers:  Another billion dollars at stack.   This time they're gonna try battery storage to make up for when the sun don't shine.   Sadly, no battery production on earth (a production process that in itself is extremely impactful on the environment) could ever hope to meet the demand that will be placed on this facility to serve the Las Vegas market. 

Failure of solar power to meet the energy needs of the communities it serves means that an equal or greater amount of conventionally produced energy must be ready to go at a moments notice to offset solar energies inability to meet real world demands.

Useful Idiot Steve Dave, I'm not fighting anything, dummy.

It's just a pipe dream.   U.S. energy demands provided we ever recover from RONA Bros controlling states, will continue to far outstrip "green" energy demands for decades to come.

She's very Hitlarian in body position and gestures when she's at the podium in the house.   So it's not the least bit surprising that Useful Idiot nation is drawn to her.

Because they spent a billion dollars on it and it failed.

Now they're gonna go a different route and also put in a bunch of huge batteries for low generation periods.   There's not enough capacity.  So again, if solar lags on generation, conventional energy production must be ready to go online immediately to make up for the lag.

If Jill Joe truly acquiesces to the GND collectivist whack-a-doo's, China will own it all in the next 5 to 10 years.

For example, as the Australian "green energy" whack-a-doo's continue to press forward, Australian heavy industry see's no future, "green energy" will not be able to meet their needs consistently.

The German "green energy" effort failed . . . "green energy" is a niche play and should always be treated as such.   This is why Angie Merkel has 1 and wants another gas pipeline from Vlad Putin. 

China on the other hand has no real interest and never will  have any interest in truly going green.   Right now, 177 mega oil tankers are unloading oil in China.   The road to over 450 Chinese designed and built coal energy plants both in China and world wide continues unabated.

China says they'll invest $1 trillion dollars on the road to China 2025 to overtake every major technology sector including chip making in the next 4 to 5 years. 

This will come as a surprise to some, but right now, the pollution forecast in China's industrialized areas is "very unhealthy", yesterday it was "very unhealthy" and tomorrow it will be "very unhealthy" . . . and they don't give a crap.
