Default The 100 Percent Run

I think I still hold a fairly unbiased approach to technology, thinking, how wonderful it would be to drastically introduce higher energy yields with far less sacrifice to natural resources shown by superior methods used to get it.

But due to the other ‘swamp’ on display with the political slough determined to strap the citizenry with a bogus carbon tax and regs isn’t helping matters, and the energy / climate / natural depletions controversies, I’m finding too few citations on research findings used agree on such as seen here,

The Appalling Delusion of 100 Percent Renewables

Your thoughts or links are most welcome!

Moderators, if you think this is better seen in the "Science" section either delete or move. Thanks!!

FOLLOW THE LEADER: HOW 11 COUNTRIES ARE SHIFTING TO RENEWABLE ENERGY
Who’s embracing wind? Solar? Geothermal? These countries could provide blueprints for the worldwide shift to renewable energy.
This December, almost 200 countries from every corner of the world signed the Paris Agreement, committing to decrease greenhouse gas emissions and – dare we say – save the world!
The question on everyone's mind: How?
The truth is, we don't have to wait on scientists to invent some newfangled contraption. The solutions are already here! We simply need to ramp up renewable energy generation, and fast.

Here's how: follow the leader. There are many countries already forging ahead towards a low-carbon future. Whether solar is starting to shine or the answer is ****ing in the wind, the solutions are growing every day. But don't take our word for it. Read on to learn how places around the globe are going renewable.

1. SWEDEN



In 2015, Sweden threw down the gauntlet with an ambitious goal: eliminating fossil fuel usage within its borders, and immediately ramping up investment in solar, wind, energy storage, smart grids, and clean transport. And the best part? The Swedes are challenging everyone else to join them in a race to become the first 100-percent renewable countries. Now that's a competition where everyone wins.

2. COSTA RICA



Thanks to its unique geography and commitment to environmental preservation, small but mighty Costa Rica meets a huge amount of its energy needs using hydroelectric, geothermal, solar, wind, and other low-carbon sources. Next on the horizon: Costa Rica aims to be entirely carbon-neutral by 2021.

3. NICARAGUA

Not to be outdone by its Tico neighbors, Nicaragua saw renewables comprise up to 54 percent of all electricity production in June 2015. How'd Nicaragua do it? In 2007, the then-president began emphasizing renewable energy investments. By 2012, Nicaragua invested the fifth-highest percentage worldwide of its GDP in developing renewable energy. Next on the to-do list: The country is aiming for 90-percent renewable energy by 2020, with the majority of energy coming from wind, solar, and geothermal sources.

4. SCOTLAND



Great Scot! The answer to Scotland's energy needs is ****ing in the wind. In 2015, wind power produced the equivalent of 97 percent of the country's household electricity needs.

5. GERMANY



Germany set the trend when it comes to renewable energy. It leads the world in solar PV capacity and has even been able to meet as much of 78 percent of a day's electricity demand from renewables. For a relatively cloudy country of over 80 million people, Germany is looking forward to a seriously bright future for solar energy!

6. URUGUAY

Going renewable doesn’t have to take a lot of time and generous subsidies. Uruguay is now 95-percent powered by renewables after less than 10 years of concerted effort. The country invested heavily in wind and solar with no subsidies or increases in consumer costs. The secret? "Clear decision-making, a supportive regulatory environment, and a strong partnership between the public and private sector."


7. DENMARK

Denmark got 42 percent of its electricity from wind turbines in 2015, and that's not just a bunch of hot air. Even with two wind farms offline, that's the highest percent of wind power ever achieved worldwide. The country aims to be 100-percent fossil-fuel-free by 2050, and these strong winds at its back will help push Denmark to that goal.


The list goes on but yes, I do think it is delusional for the USA to be 100% renewable due to the size of your cities and population and also because the amount of invested interest in non renewable energies. Who would ever give up those kind of profits?
Even to the detriment of the environment?

Solar Panels that are designated to be discarded in landfills and eventually break, will leach into the soil and release the carcinogenic cadmium and chromium not to mention lead.

Discarding Solar Panel Takedown

From that emerges the 'magical' number of "300" times worse than nuclear per unit of energy.

And don't forget the batteries used to store the energy, they also are damaging to the environment and are often not dealt with efficiently after use. Its easy to broadcast how great something is without talking about the downfalls almost ALWAYS inherent. Like wind power killing more birds, wave power killing fish, etc.

That's right! We aren't there yet. There remains a funny thing with some of these folks how that they want clean energy but still refuses to accept the carbon-free aspects of hydroelectric and nuclear, they are, it is said simply “anti-energy”. At least for those in the "green" camp, maybe not?

Not looking good for the earth and future generations because of our appetite for energy. Heaters in the winter and A/C in the summer and all the other creature comforts and mod cons in between.
And then there is the industrial and seemingly number one priority of more jobs.

At least we reduced our dependency of chlorofluorocarbons and other halogenated ozone depleting substances.

The thing about the greenies and tree huggers, if they didn't express their extreme views and act upon them, there would be no more trees and nothing being done to attempt to save the environment.
