The foretold mess of relying on wind and solar.



Coal Plants Run At 100% Capacity, Struggle To Keep Lights On

Wintertime wind and solar energy “between 0 and 2 or 3 percent – that is de facto zero,” says German power distribution professor.


Berlin’s power supply severely strained

Germany now finds itself in the dead of winter. Much of the country has seen considerable snowfall, meaning solar panels are often covered by snow and thus rendered useless. Even without snow cover, the weeks-long overcast sky prevents any noteworthy solar power generation.

Moreover, this winter there have been many long windless periods, and so Germany’s approx. 30,000 wind turbines have been largely out of operation. In a world 100% reliant on green energies, this would mean near 100% darkness at home.

...

According to Prof. Harald Schwarz, professor of power distribution at the University of Cottbus:


With this supply of wind and photovoltaic energy, it’s between 0 and 2 or 3 percent – that is de facto zero. You can see it in many diagrams that we have days, weeks, in the year where we have neither wind nor PV. Especially this time for example – there is no wind and PV, and there are often times when the wind is very miniscule. These are things, I must say, that have been physically established and known for centuries, and we’ve simply totally neglected this during the green energies discussion.”

Germany has become a shithole under the Marxists.
They tell women to dress down in public. Always apologising for WW2. Their men are being feminised. Foreign hordes of criminals roam the streets. A broken nation.
Sad to watch.

Good thing they shut down the nukes.

Brilliant.

To Lefists this is acceptable though. They still think they are saving the planet.

So much for lets all go green. Those that fell for that shit get exactly what they asked for. Good Lord.
