Zero emission energy sources from exaggerating Windbags...

Quote




Proponents of renewable energy will grab on to any sign of success.
That’s precisely what The Guardian (UK) did on July 10, when it ran a misleading headline claiming, “Wind power generates 140% of Denmark's electricity demand.”

The idea presented by the headline, was far from accurate, but the hype was no surprise.
The Guardian long ago abandoned objectivity on energy issues in favor of climate alarmism and activism.

It actively opposes fossil fuels use with the ongoing #KeepItInTheGround campaign.
The article by Europe environment correspondent Arthur Neslen made it sound like Denmark had fulfilled all its energy needs with wind power and had some left to spare.

But upon closer reading, Neslen talking about one “unusually windy” day (July 9, 2015).
Not a month.
Not a week.
One single day.

That tiny success was trumpeted by The Guardian and other news outlets as a major victory for wind power.
Neslen even quoted European Wind Energy Association spokesman Oliver Joy, who insisted that Denmark’s one-day wind energy windfall “shows that a world powered 100% by renewable energy is no fantasy.”

Neslen also said that the “British wind industry may view the Danish achievement with envy” after losing government subsidies and because of “planning obstacles.”


Similar claims have been made before, but wind power proponents in the media and elsewhere ignore wind power’s major flaws.
Center for Industrial Progress President and Founder Alex Epstein observed that “[w]ind is constantly varying, sometimes disappearing nearly completely” in his book, The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels.

That means sometimes there can be no wind, and therefore, no wind energy.
“Sometimes the combined output of solar and wind is relatively high—and sometimes it is nothing; that is the nature of an intermittent, unreliable source,” Epstein said about overly optimistic claims about renewable “successes” in Denmark’s neighbor Germany.

Epstein also pointed out that a more “reliable source” of energy like coal was required to “do the heavy lifting,” because unreliable energy sources have to be backfilled by a steady form of energy (usually natural gas or coal).

There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

One fine day, thanks to Mr. Wind (assuredly related to the biggest wind fart of all, Al Gore your pocketbooks), we'll all live with sporadic surges of tiny electric power to lead our community organized wretched lives.
Sneaking into a country doesn't make you an immigrant any
more than breaking into someone's house makes you part of the family.

During the day, when it's not cloudy, or during an eclipse...we can augment "sporadic surges of tiny electric power" with solar.
Mind you solar will be heavily subsidized with no credence given to competition or efficiency, so it will be the most expensive energy available.

They pay farmers in Germany more for the solar power produced on their farms than they sell it for....sounds like DUmmies to me.

Solar power....take the tinfoil off your windows DUmmies.
“The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of ‘liberalism’, they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.” - Norman Thomas, U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948

"America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."  Stalin
