Nothing will replace Coal or Nuclear efficiently anytime soon. Good luck powering your population with Solar and Wind.
Weather won't stop me from burning coal, but sure could blackout an area if on "Renewable."
Worse thing is, the Area to power ratio of Solar and Wind is horrid.
Not sure what words I was putting in your mouth, I was drawing the conclusion that if you think a 600lb (est.) windmill would be so dangerous, even though they are currently used all over in the agriculture industry, than you must logically think any other object of a similar mass that has potential to fall or break from heights is equally as dangerous. Otherwise, I can't predict or base an valid opinion on the illogical. You're obviously incapable of grasping the concept...you're still way off base as to what I proposed, and sounding more and more like you have no idea what I am talking about every post you make. Wind power to create hydrogen from water...And just so you know, there are many private residences that are already completely off the grid, proving it is possible, though current tech makes it a costly investment. But, think about how much electricity costs currently...I think I probably pay about $2000 a year. So let's say you own a house for 30 years and spend $2000 a year on electricity...that's $60,000. I am sure you could be off the grid for $60,000. And if homes were built around this concept, and nothing needed "retro-fitted", the cost would be substantially less.Edited by Aaron_Henderson - 4/1/12 at 5:18am
