    Lol.....the fossil fuel industry has been ruthlessly demonized by environmental nutters for four decades. And to what end? Hasn't accomplished dick... nobody cares.....back then or now!!:bye1::bye1::aug08_031:. If they had even been marginally successful, renewable energy would be more than the joke it is today!!! Providing America with a whopping 5% of our electricity!:flirtysmile4:

    No, they are telling that staff to follow science. And not the minions of the treasonous fat senile old orange clown.

    Why lie so much?

    U.S. Energy Facts - Energy Explained, Your Guide To Understanding Energy - Energy Information Administration


    • Domestic energy production is equal to about 90% of U.S. energy consumption in 2017


      In 2017, the amount of energy produced in the United States was equal to about 87.5 quadrillion Btu, and this was equal to about 89.6% of U.S. energy consumption. The difference between the amount of total primary energy consumption and total primary energy production was mainly the energy content of net imports of crude oil.

      The three major fossil fuels—petroleum, natural gas, and coal—combined accounted for about 77.6% of the U.S. primary energy production in 2017:

    Lol....I dont lie s0n....but 100% certainty you are guilty of posting up fakery all the time in here. Almost every post. Like above.....your stated figure of 12.7% renewables is......FAKE. What % of that figure is solar + wind?

    I mean.....c'mon now. Do I really need to do another big boob / little boob analogy to set the curious straight about the fakery? You know....the side by side showing Kim K next to Kate Hudson where the implication becomes you deem Kate Hudson as the big boobed chick.:deal:

    Dumb ass, there is a thread where you compatriots are arguing that hydro is renewable, a position I agree with. And here is the closing statement from the site that you posted;

    [​IMG]

    The issue with solar, Johnson said, is it can become an intermittent power source if, for example, homeowners install more solar than they use. Power traveling back and forth on a system can put added wear on some components, he said.

    “Circuit by circuit is really where the action is at, I think,” he said. “In a given circuit, if you end up installing a certain amount that ends up becoming as much or more than those consumers use, then that circuit needs to be able to flow backward through the substation.”

    Johnson added he is not aware of solar causing any large-scale issues on the grid so far.

    Iowa Environmental Council’s Baer said state rules for on-site generation — regulated by the Iowa Utilities Board — provide the framework for statewide solar growth.

    To connect solar to the grid, customers first have to determine the impacts of such an addition. The process — which was developed a few years ago and adopted in 2017 — helps ensure that such connections are done in a safe and efficient manner, Baer said.

    But most importantly, Baer said, is that wind and solar work together. With a diverse energy portfolio, utilities can dispatch the cheapest option available as conditions and energy prices fluctuate.

    “When solar comes on, it can reduce stress in the grid. It can provide clean energy when it’s most expensive,” he said. “Both wind and solar, they’re very complementary.”

    More sun, more wind - But will their success hurt the power grid?

    Really, you dumb ass deniers should actually read the articles you post. And then there is the use of batteries, both home scale and grid scale. That really changes the whole equation in favor of renewables. Virtual power stations will be a very large part of our energy equation in the future.

    Lol.....the whole idea is that hydro is 80% or so of renewables. Wind and solar still a joke, especially solar which I've already pointed out provides the US with 1% of our electricity. I guess to some, that's an impressive figure. To most, its laughable. To most, wind and solar combined providing only 5% of our electricity needs is beyond laughable.... particularly after 20 years of bomb-throwing by the climate crusaders!:flirtysmile4::flirtysmile4::flirtysmile4:. Why do you think we see most environmentalists described as having green fantasies? It is because they are hopelessly optimistic.....feet off the ground-like. I'm only in this forum because they make such easy targets for ridicule.....put it on a tee for deniers daily. It's a hoot!

    Solar rises to nearly 2% of U.S. generation in 2017
    Generation from U.S. solar increased 41% last year to 1.9% of all electricity, with solar making up more than 10% of generation in California, Nevada, Hawaii and Vermont.

    Solar rises to nearly 2% of U.S. generation in 2017

    Now wouldn't we all like to have a bank account that increased by 41% in a year.
