QOTD: (Long) Green Energy.

“Green” energy is more expensive and environmentally disruptive. It’s not a little more expensive either; it’s a lot more expensive, with few exceptions. The biggest reason is that most “green” sources are intermittent, that is, you can’t rely on them. Solar and wind are the two most-obvious examples.

Intermittent energy sources must be fully backed up with non-intermittent ones or you get blackouts. You must pay for the infrastructure of said backup source and to man them so that when the intermittent event occurs you don’t have to shut down electrical service. The cost of this backup must be paid for whether it is in use or not and yet the green proponents never include that backup in their cost comparisons.
