Comment Re:Renewables will never work (Score 1) 290

Nope. The story is about Production - not Consumption. What happens when the sun doesn't shine or wind doesn't blow? Or when it's too much? Energy storage doesn't economically exist and transmission hasn't been rebuilt to handle massive fluctuations.

It comes down to, locally, renewables costing 60 cents/kw while coal/gas/hydro costs 9 cents/kw. Spending that 51 extra cents/kw not only is an economic waste, but environmental waste back up the supply chain.

Agreed. The biggest problem is government subsidies to live in flood areas.

As for "aggressively tackling" I have to ROFLMAO. Asia continues to build a new coal fire plant every week. I'm more concerned about the pollution they are spewing - there are advisories not to eat fish in USA lakes because of poisoning from Asia energy and manufacturing air pollution.

Yes, your local peace officers do the right thing. That's their job and there is a multitude of tools, trainings, and stats to back it up.

OTOH, them wearing body cams is a great way to show the world just how much of an stupid asshole YOU are. I think those should automatically be uploaded to youtube and found by a simple google search by your future employers, possible friends, love interests, family, etc etc. It'll also tie the hands of a peace officer in not being able to let you go with a warning - something that is the most common occurrence today but unfortunately disappearing.

Don't demand something without accepting reciprocation.
