Solar power is viable only in the southwestern US.<quoted text>
How many Wind Turbines, Solar Panels and Gerbils Running In Cages will it take to run the NY Subway System, Manufacturing Plants and Rooftop Air Conditioners?
The entire eastern half of the U.S. Continent.
And that's just for NY City on sunny days with good wind
...and healthy Gerbils.
Wind power is viable in relatively limited areas.
Neither are reliable and both require redundant fossil or nuclear power.
Power cannot be stored in great quantities nor transmitted over long distances.
But if America wants to sit at home and freeze in the dark, so be it.
