Nonsense. They are building and installing more wind turbines every day.
and solar only works in places… but we still do not have feasible batteries to store electricity for when the sun don’t shine.
It would be nice to have better batteries, but we do not need better batteries to benefit from solar. The peak demand for electricity normally coincides to periods when the sun is shining. So it is a perfect match! Furthermore we don’t need to completely replace fossil fuel plants to benefit from alternative energy sources. The more energy we get from these alternative sources the less fossil fuel we have to burn.
We can also heat water into steam using natural decomposition of uranium and thorium … Once operating, a nuclear power reactor will run literally forever and cost about only one-sixth as much as so-called “renewable energy”.
Not all alternative energy advocates are against such use of nuclear power. For example, I think it has great promise and would like to see such things developed.
Wind power also has problems with killing birds that are endangered species.
You have to keep this problem in perspective. Feral cats kill at least 3000 times as many birds - including endangered species - than wind turbines.
And wind mills make disruptive noises.
Last week I was on a road trip through Southwestern Minnesota, I-169 and i-90, where there are hundreds of wind turbines along the way. We decided to pull over next to one of these that was quite close to the road to see how “disruptive” the noise was. If there was any other traffic on the road, we could not hear the wind turbine at all. When traffic did clear completely, we could just barely hear a gentle “whoosh-whoosh” of the blades. So if you consider wind turbines objectionably disruptive, what do you say about the noise of traffic on the highways, which is much louder and more widespread?
