Reality Bites Wind

Post by Riddick » 09-28-2022 12:34 PM

One of the fundamental problems with wind and solar is that they are ridiculously low-intensity. Consequently, raw materials in massive amounts are needed to produce a modest, and unreliable, amount of energy.

DYN a single wind turbine requires 4 TONS or more of copper? And copper is just one of a number of minerals turbines and their mythical “batteries” require in enormous quantities? And said quantity of just this one turbine component requires a vast amount of fossil fuels to produce?

If Western governments continue their wind & solar energy obsession, already skyrocketing prices for commodities like copper will be utterly out of sight. This means every projection of the ultimate cost of a “green” economy is vastly too low.

It also means the cost of anything we buy that requires equipment to produce will also rise beyond the resources of the average consumer. No one has yet plumbed the depth of the disaster that awaits if we continue on our present course.

Sounds to me like we may be forced into the Cosmos, of which is super rich in all the raw materials, minerals, elements a 21st century world could ever want. No, solar and wind power are all obsoiete already, they won't even begin to addess the energy problems , we will soon have in spades.

Oil not just for heat. Like it or not we live in a Plastic world, many fabrics and textiles are oil based. If this would all disappear, we more than likely would have no picture frames to buttons, not much in affordable clothing. As I look around, my place would be just about empty. :shock:

Our Seven Seas are puking it up on the beaches and Hurricane Ian is returning carelessly discarded plastics to the sender's dba "Litter Bugs"!

Someday, when we are not so involved in just keeping our own butts alive, fed and comfortable. And freedom rings across the land, science goes to become science again, and Entrepreneurship comes back in favor and we seek "Solutions" instead of one up-manship, and working as a unit , together. We may find the solution to the problem, with-out throwing the baby out with the bath-water(out of the Plastic Tub). :D

The "Bite-Me" administration is only interested Power Over the People. It can do that easily by quashing
CAPITALISM, that it hates, with it in place they loose power. People like working, inventing etc. But they also like being paid for what they do. A lot of people in there "Greed", have opted for a Totalitarian Government that form of government in which the political authority exercises absolute and centralized control over all aspects of life, the individual is subordinated to the state, and opposing political and cultural expression is suppressed. They are making sure That NEVER happens. In their Greed, Envy and Jealousy , they are ever so willing to give up on any thing that resembles "Self Care" and live as Victims for all there lives. Because they really believe they are just as good as those that do all the hard work and the creating. PURE EGO, of which is nothing but hot air.We are NOT ALL equal! We are all here at different stages of our journey. Just because Joe Blow invented the wheel, does NOT mean I deserve his pay.
