There is a great post on the problems with all sorts of renewable energy on Watt’s Up With That. He does a great job of explaining the various downsides of most power sources and their lack of compatibility with the modern needs of our society.
The article is a posting of an essay by Ralph Ellis but I couldn’t find the original essay to link to.
Check out the article here.
The article discusses
- wind power
- solar power
- nuclear power
- tidal power
- hydrogen power
- traditional coal and oil power
The conclusion is that most of the “alternatives” actually hurt our environment more or cost us dramatically more money. The only realistic alternative is nuclear.
