More Global Cooling/Warming/Change hoax.

And so please post your scientific qualifications. You have a PHD in what? And a masters in? Oh, yeah, reposting.
Hilarious. Libs have gone from "give us a link to your claim", to "you're not qualified for anything but reposting". Well, its obvious liberals are intolerant of anything that doesn't fit into what they are told by their leaders. Where would you be without your leaders?

How much have you contributed to the operations of this forum Bob?

Oh, and Rick’s “Real Name” is in his handle. You really are that dim aren’t you.
 
“As Bill Gates has put it, the challenge calls for scientific ‘miracles.’ Any hoped-for technological breakthroughs won’t emerge from subsidizing yesterday’s technologies, including wind and solar. The Internet didn’t emerge from subsidizing the dial-up phone, or the transistor from subsidizing vacuum tubes, or the automobile from subsidizing railroads. If policymakers were serious about the pursuit of the next energy revolution, they’d be talking a lot more about reinvigorating support for basic science.”

Ron,

If you'll allow me a post before returning this string to an enjoyable one again:

I would think I'd get tired of reading link after link, that tells half the story, simply because a sliver of it is justified by personal beliefs.

Wind is just a stepping stone, whose subsidization (tax credits) paved the way toward other steps in tying it all together (wind and solar linked to stored energy devices). It is like the '80s fuel injection systems for cars, which was very crude and basic. Yet today, fuel injection is a mastered art that breathed new life into the internal combustion engine for better tailpipe emissions. Wind is doing the same, and bringing along companion technologies that will allow a complete system to work efficiently.

These companion devices (stored energy and solar) are also receiving tax incentives to help get them propped up, all of which will be transformative for our energy supply industry. I am a big proponent of nuclear, but a large percentage of our population is not, and that spans all demographics. The idea that battery technology is "fanciful" is either misinformation, or ignorance of what is really taking place in this technology. I deal almost daily (recently), with the potential of this storage in our industry, and it is 10 fold more promising at this early stage of development, than wind was in its infancy.

"Smart technologies and AI" are not placing a burden on the grid that renewables cannot handle. In fact just the opposite is true. Smart technologies (and AI when it is developed) are allowing the complexities of energy storage resources to better integrate with renewables and thermal resources, to make them even more manageable.

Please take time to do more than just find a post and throw it out there. Please investigate battery costs versus time, and expected future costs. Investigate the recycling of L-ion batteries and the plan for car battery recycling. Investigate how stored and renewable resources pair up. Please investigate the near-future projects in the queue for these and other stored energy resources. Please investigate the net impact wind has had on energy prices in those fortunate areas that have lots of wind. 10 years ago the "experts" said 20% injection was a limit, yet today we are routinely running double that, and over 60% on peak wind days. Yes, nuclear would be great to put side-by-side with renewable resources, but unless you've been in a cave the last 10 years, you would know why that may never happen.

Oh, you are asking for "Bob"to actually read and understand the stuff he posts! Not gonna happen....................
