Renewable energy 'simply WON'T WORK': Top Google engineers

i don't even care

one jet leaving the local airfield is using more fuel, creating more pollution, than me and my entire family will do in a lifetime.

you don't have to be a PhD to know that the so-called renewable fraud is exactly that. Can't and won't ever pay for itself and i'm not willing to go live in a cave to meet some idiots desire.

"restaurants"

Seriously? Scare quotes around "restaurants" for McDonalds? They may not be a four-star place, but you can eat the food there (if you like). If you want to editorialize about the quality, quantity, make-up of their food, then please write an editorial about their food (or what, apparently, only passes for food in your estimation).

Internet taxes

Well, the states often have "use" taxes which are supposed to be the self-reported sales taxes for items bought over the interweb, but i suspect that most people don't even track their purchases much less worry about their local state and city having a few dollars more to piss away.

If you're suing the UK govt, Brit spies will snoop on your briefs

earl grey

That, of course, assumes one important thing

And that is that you can actually PROVE yourself innocent and have the ways and means at your disposal to prove said. Most are never given a chance; don't get a fair trial (what's that?), and will be eventually released with a not-so-gentle "and don't do that again." from the overbearing club of the government.

economically viable options

Still waiting to see what that entails...

24 hr reliable power generation at locations suitable for proper distribution to populations that don't bankrupt everyone....

nobody wants nuclear in their back yard (well, a few may not mind, but not the general populace).

Wind... off and on...not exactly reliable.

Solar panels (the cheapo ones made in China that are good for a month before they fail); not exactly your 24hr source of reliable power.

Batteries to store power - enormously dirty to produce and and recycle.

Let's keep going with this... people are NOT going to stop reproducing and if weather changes cause all of Africa to migrate to europe, things will get real ugly (well, uglier than they are now).

Aye, but the only difference between who is defined as a criminal and who is not is based purely on who is in power when the law is passed and who controls them (whether religion, big business, or the oligarchs).
