Re: “Unsafe, dirty, and unnecessary

Thank you for your well-written and apparently thoroughly researched rebuttal, Jerry.

Renewable energy sources, if they are ever made financially viable without heavy sudsidization, would provide an appreciable amount of amount of electricity assuming the infrastructure is established.

What should the energy industry do to accommodate the grid on days when perhaps the wind doesn't blow, or the sun's energy cannot provide ample power at ground level due to cloud cover? What should the energy industry do on days when both of the aforementioned scenarios occur simultaneously?

What should the energy industry do to accommodate the demands we put on the grid during peak summer hours when everyone and their mothers are running their air conditioning system at home? Should we build an overexcessive amount of solar farms to ensure that even the electricity generated for the most demanding summer days is solely renewable?

The answer the energy industry has for my all but my last question is to provide on-demand, as-needed electricity. Nuclear power has the ability to satisfy both baseline needs and this on-demand power I speak of, because the amount of power generated is controllable.

In contrast, California already pays other states to receive its excess solar electricity to prevent damage to its own infrastructure on some days. So, if we already sometimes have too much solar electricity, does it really make sense to build more solar infrastructure?

When our ancestors discovered fire, is it not safe to assume they burned their hands a few times before figuring out that even though it was dangerous, it also had many benefits for man?

P.S. Please no batteries talk; if anyone thinks batteries are the answer, he probably also thinks lithium, nickel, cobalt, and aluminum mining are sustainable industries with low emissions!
