A Mostly Wind and Solar-Powered U.S. Economy Is a Dangerous Fantasy

What a great article.

A large part of the solar/wind power fantasy is storage. How, where, and at what cost would enough energy be stored to power the US?

The proposed transition to “net zero” via wind and solar power is not only not easy, but is a total fantasy. It likely cannot occur at all without dramatically undermining our economy, lifestyle and security, and it certainly cannot occur at anything remotely approaching reasonable cost. At some point, the ongoing forced transition… will crash and burn.

It doesn’t matter whether you build a million wind turbines and solar panels, or a billion, or a trillion. On a calm night, they will still produce nothing, and will require full back-up from some other source.

If you propose a predominant wind/solar electricity system, where fossil fuel back-up is banned, you must, repeat must, address the question of energy storage.
