I was commenting on the fact that we hear liberals like sheeple whine and admonish everyone else to go to alternative energy, but if we could see through the smoke they blow, I am willing to bet none of them take their own advice. They talk a good game, but will only install it themselves if its on someone elses dime. Do I have it? No, my home is in no way situated to take advantage of solar.

Why would people freeze in the winter just because their electricity comes from wind & solar instead of coal?

In addition, there are natural gas and even fuel oil furnaces which are better than coal generated electricity.

Actually it's the working class who will be building all those new engines.
Unless of course we wait too long as usual and cede that technology & manufacturing to the Chinese, like we did with solar & wind technology.
The sheeple are their own worst enemy; they get what they deserve.
You mat be right, the working class might build those engines. Will their salaries double or triple to pay for the high priced energy to get to work or heat/cool their homes? I would say no. So they will be further behind. Get the technology to be economically competitive first, and it will work.

Because it costs ten times more and they can't afford it.

Then why won't the enviroterrorists allow a new natural gas facility to be built? Answer: because you dgaf about people.

Mainly because it doesn't come RELIABLY from wind and solar. And furnaces require electricity to run the burners and blowers and things, so no electricity, no heat. Without reliably electricity, you need a wood stove.

Here is an example of why I say it is unreliable. This is a record of German demand and Wind/Solar supply. The Germans are supposed to have ~50GW of W&S capacity. As you will see on the graph, there were periods of many days when the combined output was maybe 1% of that. Not a good way to run a civilization.

Guess you don't know about convective heating. No electricity needed . No need for blowers and the burner is operated with a thermocouple.

Wonder how that works in Bemidji MN when to temp is 40 below zero and the wind is blowing 30mph?

Sounds like an oil fired wood stove. Already made that exception. Of course, many folks don't want such things in their living space, so I guess THEY can freeze, what?

Since this is mostly a liberal hoax that has made Al Gore worth 200 million dollars, it's a wonder that all the billionaires and millionaires that are liberal don't pool their private money to develop the wind and solar or even another alternative source of energy. The fact they won't put their own money in and want uncle sugar to foot the bill shows they don't really believe themselves.
