Posted on 07/21/2014 11:17:18 AM PDT by CedarDave
Renewable energy, particularly wind and solar, continues to set records for electicity generation and installed capacity in many parts of the world, and as shown in Figure 1 wind and solar growth in recent years has indeed been quite spectacular:
If decarbonization is to be achieved by expanding renewables the expansion will have to come in wind, solar and biomass. So lets take hydro out and see how far growth in wind, solar and biomass has carried us along the decarbonization path so far:
Clearly they still have a long way to go.

The wind turbine and solar markets are driven entirely — entirely — by tax credits. Without them, no one would be doing a wind or solar project, period. It is a completely artificial market.
Crony capitalism at its finest.....
it all leads back to the regime.
Every trick in the book is used to try to make the scam look good.
Specially when one critical and important factor is left out.
How much conventional energy was used to create the "renewable" energy infrastructure, and how much does it cost to maintain it?
And never, not ever, is the delivered unsubsidized cost per megawatt to the consumer stated, or even hinted at.
Until that happens routinely, it remains a horrendously expensive scam.
I'm waiting for CO2, the basis of this huge scam, to be determined, in a U.S. Court of law, scientifically and conclusively proven to be the harm the alarmists claim.
Applying rigorously, the scientific rules of evidence and procedure long established by law.
Why was a blank chart posted?
Here is a very possible answer to our energy needs: http://www.triplepundit.com/2012/04/liquid-fluoride-thorium-power-pros-cons/
If you check Youtube for information from Kirk Sorensen (anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 hours), you can begin to see the great possibilities of this LFTR (Liquid Floride Thorium Reactor) technology.
