    I think one of the worst things is that were selling some of the best technologies to other countries and not even using it domestically!

    I think the only evidence you need is that there are several third world countries that have managed to exceed 100% energy grid needs with renewable energy, and America is the largest economy and most advanced technically in the world several times over.

    To suggest America “can’t” use renewable energy for 100% of our energy needs is simply ignorant.

    Denmark – 140% with *wind alone* at highest point. (Note –
    Denmark normally is not good about their consumption, honestly)

    ~~Germany – >100%, government had to actually pay people because of it.~~ Fuck Germany, whatever.

    Norway – 100% from hydropower recently, but made 97% most of the time before with the last 3% from wind.

    Iceland – 100% from thermal and combination of others.

    Costa Rica – 99% from renewable for the whole year…*in 2015*

    Scotland – 97% from wind et al

    Nicaragua – Up to 57% this year, and it started investing <10 years ago.

    Uruguay – 97%, also in less than 10 years.

    Kenya – 51% renewable, mostly geothermal.

    It’s a lie that doesn’t matter. Solar power has already grown 12 times faster than the economy in the U.S.A in 2017 alone. Solar will become the cheapest option in the next decade and capitalism loves the cheaper option. We have Obama to thank for giving subsidys to green energy to speed up this process even though lots of startups failed and major investments were lost in the proccess.

    The real issue will be figuring out how to store excess energy that isn’t used from solar energy. I’m hopeful this will force a new generations of batteries.

    I don’t usually agree with Bernie but he is right. I don’t think its that hard to transition and it certainly is not an “impossibility” as I’ve heard from others.

    But on the flip side we have “green” minded individuals trying to shut down many solar plants and wind plants because they kill birds. https://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2014/02/nevadas-massive-solar-plant-death-ray-birds/358244/

    Thats one example, there was another one that was actually shut down from turtle deaths…

    Seems like you can’t win ever with many of these sustainability minded people because any impact=evil.

    Personally i think more nuclear options should be explored and France should be used as a template because most of their electricity comes from plants rather than coal. Too many people however, are deathly afraid of nuclear. The new plants (i believe they are on gen 5 if i am not mistaken) have significantly less waste, radiation, and possibility of going critical but because the gen 1/2 plants like Chernobyl and Fukushima failed so abysmally no one seems to want to consider it. Heck the new plants have ways to reuse waste, but most don’t know that.

    I like the see you run a steel mill or a aluminum smelter from solar panels and batteries.

    You still need baseload generation by power sources that can be on all the time and throttled up as needed. Nuclear, Natural Gas, Hydro, and Geothermal are perfect for this.

    Solar, wind, other are good for reducing demand on the baseload generators. If it is a sunny or windy day, you can throttle back the natural gas plant. House batteries are good for storing your own solar power and providing when the grid can’t. Grid batteries are for stabilizing demand on the grid.

    i think the biggest failing of current politics on energy policy, is the polarization. It is either solar panels and batteries or oil and coal.

    We need to stop making green tech political. Solar and wind are now cheaper than fossil fuels for a simple reason: the Sun and wind are free resources that last forever – coal and oil are not.

    Please let Trump be the last gasp before we elect Bernie or a younger version of him for 8 years. Then an even more progressive candidate after him, luring all those disaffected voters out of the woodwork.

    Bernie Sanders is a socialist. In Bernie’s America, Tesla wouldn’t exist. Capitalism was at the heart of the innovation in Eli Musk’s companies.

    In Bernie’s America, I will get taxed out the ass because I worked hard and can afford an $80,000 Tesla.

    So question here: I’ve been told by folks in the energy industry that infrastructure upgrades aren’t able to keep up with the technology curve- even if the capital was available to spend. Is this an accurate statement? Is it more applicable for other types of energy generation (i.e. solar, geothermal, etc.)?

    We have to start somewhere and like any technology it will become affordable for the masses as new technology is released. You will always have rich early adopters and the middle and lower will follow. A rising tide lifts all boats (suppose to anyway).
