If Green Energy Is So Great, Why Aren't We Using It?


[ad_1]

Green energy is getting better and cheaper, yet we still largely rely on fossil fuels. Why haven’t we switched to solar and wind energy yet? Which Countries Will …

    IF THE US NAVY CAN HAVE SHIPS POWERED BY A BALL OF URANIUM THE SIZE OF A BASEBALL FOR 50+ YEARS… THEN WHY THE HELL ARENT WE USING MORE NUCLEAR ITS THE SAFEST FORM OF ENERGY THEYVE EVEN FIGURED OUT WAYS TO RECYCLE THE NUCLEAR WASTE FROM OLD REACTORS AND PUT IT BACK INTO THEM TO BE REUSED… HOWS THAT FOR SELF SUSTAINING ENERGY FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS…

    I have been trying since 2005 to get funding for a renewable energy production facility to replace coal and natural gas for power plants! The latest reason why I am not able to get funding is: "I don't have a large enough online presence!:

    LOL WHY ??/
    DUMB QUESTION!
    LOL WHEN OIL COMPANY AND CORPORATE MEDIA DOES DENIALMEDIA, AT HIGH COST TO THE WHOLE PLANET, FOR PROFITS…WE ARE NOT THAT FAR FROM IT BECAUSE SOME STATES HAVE ALREADY STARTED…LITHIUM AND NUCLEAR HAVE GOT TO GO…NOT SUSTAINABLE… GEOTHERMAL AND MOTION TECHNOLOGY IS GROWING BY LEAPS BUT YOU DONT HEAR ABOUT IT IN AN DIRTY ENERGY BRIBED GOVERNMENT AND MEDIA OWNED!
    5 YEAR TRANSITION PLANS FOR ALL WORKERS IN THESE AND INSURANCES…WE NEED DOCTORS, ENGENEERS, NURSES, TEACHERS, EVERYTHING…EDUCATION AS AN AMERICAN RIGHT WILL INVEST IN MILLIONS OF BRIGHT AND INVENTIVE MINDS!
    IN BERNIE SANDERS 2020 GREEN NEW DEAL, (that AOC introduced) is found on his sight, HAS SO MANY JOBS THAT WE WILL DESPERATELY NEED SOME OF THOSE FOLKS THAT MR. TRUMP HAS TREATED LIKE CRIMINALS!!

    Yea until they can make wind and solar at least 35 times better than it is today we can not rely on them. Also nuclear power has zero emissions. And the reason we don’t use that is because it’s cheap and the powers at be don’t want that.

    Only one small issue with this video, solar and wind cannot come close to powering Society. In addition, they are far from a green, renewable technology.

    The climate change denying conservatives are nuts but the environmentalists who believe solar and wind are more than a small percentage of our future energy needs are delusional.

    IFR and LFTR. Meltdown proof technologies that utilize most of the energy in the fuel whilst producing 1/100 the amount of waste(not that there is much waste from the current technology.

    As a final note, the fossil fuel industry loves solar and wind. Together they are changing the future(think Venus).

    Are you a renewable energy salesman who wants the chains cut from your
    feet that keep you from going stellar with your sales? Its not you,
    its the industry that holds you back! I am a scientist and an
    electrician, and I can show you how to put your foot to the floor and
    red line your sales tach! Come see what has been missed by the
    renewable industry!

    It's not complicated it's quite simple. The fossil fuel industry is a $700Trillion Industry. like you said in this society as a whole we are entrenched in it. That's because those cartels want to keep control over the infrastructure and us… checkout, RT The World According To Jessie Dr. Steven Greer interview

    "raising the average temperature of the globe" – the global temperature has actually dropped, polar ice caps have increased, ocean shorelines have been super stable and not rising.

    So your entire argument that climate change is even A THING is a big fat lie. you're what's now called a climate hysteric. but, please, go on with your video. you're kinda cute #nohomo

    Yes you oversimplified the issue and are biased starting the video claiming that climate change is real as if that's true.
    There is no first world country run running in renewal… because they can't. Ask the Germans… they tried and didn't work for shit. Also believing in climate change is a luxury of first world's leftists. Nobody can't tell China and India to go away from fossil because they can't!!!!

    So yeah this is monumentally out of context… thumbs down.

    If a windmill falls down its going to require diesel powered heavy equipment to put it up again. Although passenger vehicles and motorcycles can run on solar but what about construction equipment, city buses, semi trucks? Fossil fuels are still needed for those.

    Because renewables being cheap doesn’t mean that replacing existing power plants that are already built is cheap. When building new facilities then renewables is highly competitive now.

    c'mon. we are talking about gigawatts of energy. It is funny to consider solar and wind or other form of renewable energy, even all combined, as a RELIABLE source of energy since again we need gigawatts of it. Well, to my mind renewables are fit for not big local communities whereas megapolis and industrial zones need either nuclear or fusion energy.

    Intermittency is an intractable deficiency for wind/solar. Since they frequently generate ZERO electricity, they require 100% backup by reliable fossil fuel, nuclear or hydro power.

    Pound-for-pound you'll never find another natural resource like oil that employs so many and can be used for so much plastic concrete most of the paints in the world countless construction materials urethane styrofoam coffee cups all those items I just named all have one thing in common they all in one way are connected to oil

    Only around 300 nuclear reactors are needed to produce enough clean and carbon-free electricity to cover all the electricity needs of the USA. Doing this, electricity would be cheap, supply reliable and the power grid would be kept stable. As opposed to that hundreds of thousands of wind turbines or billions of solar panels and who knows how much energy storage would be needed.

    This has lots of misinformation. 1 wind turbine = 16,000 solar panels and this video says they cost lots of $$ upfront but none afterward. 1:46 This is a lie. Wind turbines break, catch fire and need to have their blades replaced constantly as they hit and kill birds and get torn apart by high winds.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVHzfUWul2Y
    Also the reason why we need fossil fuels is because like this video mentioned wind and solar don't always provide energy at their full capacity. In fact Wind Turbines only produce 25% of their expected output as the winds aren't going at all times.

    But more importantly climate change is not as controllable as environmentalist has LIED to us to believe.

    CO2 is the man gas they say we need to cut out in order to stop climate change. Yet all scientist concede that CO2 is only a small amount of the total greenhouse gases that causes climate change. Water Vapor makes up 80-95% of the total greenhouse gases, with CO2 only being about 4% of the total. On top of this man's contribution to the CO2 total is only about 3-4%, which means cutting all human CO2 contributions (including breathing) would not do squat to the greenhouse gas total.
