We have tried and tried and tried. The results are that either the energy rates went sky high or the utility went bankrupt. Germany tried it and lost a lot of production due to brownouts.
The eco-nuts have virtually chased away nuclear energy. They are now attempting to do away with hydroelectric dams.
I lived out in California 40 years ago. They built windmills. They broke down and now are useless, just eyesores on the horizon. They tried it again in another location and it too is now just rubble. Those I had first hand knowledge of. Others I just heard of but it was the same story. A friend of mine has a relative who worked on windmills for Iowa Public Service. He now has a desk job due to IPS shutting down the project.
I have heard of many claims of this country's or that country's success but that is just what the were. Just claims with no substance.
The truth of the matter is that the powers that be don't want reasonable energy. Take a look at this:
Quote by Paul Ehrlich, professor, Stanford University: “Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.”
Quote by Jeremy Rifkin, Greenhouse Crisis Foundation: “The prospect of cheap fusion energy is the worst thing that could happen to the planet.”
As long as you have nitwits like this influencing our world decisions, you won't get anywhere with reasonable 'alternative' sources.
Yes, we only have one planet and it is a good one. It is clear to all, if you really looked, who really is attempting to destroy it.
