Today, Rush Limbaugh said Europe was “using weather to provide energy”. I thought that was in interesting way of looking at wind and solar. Bottom line, that is what wind and solar generation is doing–using weather to create energy. We all realize how unpredictable and changeable weather is and to realize that we are staking our economic futures and the safety and warmth of our homes on weather really brings home just how bad and idea is. Wind and solar are not renewable and never were. However, I suppose renewable was an easier sell than “using weather to provide energy”.
