    The world hysteria about global warming (bogus or not) is the perfect means whereby clean energy advances , and the perfect means of putting the scums of the Saudi Royal Family and the scums in the fossil fuel industry OUT OF BUSINESS !!

    ONE good reason for putting them out of business is that:

    gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, fuel oil-

    all STINK !!!!!

    I'm sure there are a lot more good reasons.

    There's plenty of oil and natural gas within America's lands, but the same whackos who mewl about GlobalClimateCoolerWarmering stand in the way of developing those resources.

    is there any evidence that these so called clean energy sources are actually any cleaner?

    No such thing as clean energy. You have to build it and when you build it your polluting, in the case of extremely low power yeilds of solar and wind, you have to build so much more you pollute on a much larger scale.

    A small number of ingenious devices are much cleaner, but they represent a trivial amount of the energy needs of the globe. For an example look up the "solar powered cooking pot" being spread through sub-Saharan Africa. About the same resources as a standard pot to make but just put the food in and leave it in the sun to cook no wood or coal needed.

    I've seen suggestions for other ideas which, if used as mature technologies would be far cleaner, but so far they are still no more than prototypes, and often not even that.

    Hell you could produce some power by placing low flow water turbines in the sewer sytem.

    Low power yeilds? More lies from the same source. Gigawatts of power from the wind just in Oregon. In fact, for an hour, in spite of the fact that only 8 of the 22 wind farms are any where near completion, they produced enough power for both Portland and Seattle.

    We now have one plant in Oregon that is producing 500 mw of solar cells a year, and one other of the size near completion. A couple more in the permitting process.

    Your whole rant is false and stupid beyond belief. What you are stating is that because the first loads of parts were delivered to the truck and auto factories in horse drawn wagons that we still have to have horse drawn wagons.

    There is enough energy in each of these alternatives to power the nation. Wind, solar, and geothermal. Using only the best of each, we can power the nation far more efficiently that we can with fossil fuels. And without changing our oceans and atmosphere in a way that will degrade the planet.

    No there aren't and won't be for the next 10 to fifteen years at best A megawatt sounds like a lot now all you need is another 13k of them to just to meet the power needs of Oregon. Solar and wind can be contributors but theya re not the be all and end all. The wind doesn't always blow and the sun doesn't always shine.

    If we could only harness all the sunshine the enviro-moonbats blow up our asses, viz. their "alternative energy" scams. :lol:
