NeoNotes — Green doesn't work

Solar and wind power are not practical. The sun doesn't always shine and the wind doesn't always blow. On a large scale that alone means there has to be at least as much generating capacity in standby as the sun and the wind provide. That means the "backup" has to be ready 24 7 to pick up if the solar or wind power dies down. The cost of the backup isn't included in the reported costs of solar and wind power.

In addition, solar and wind power can't be "ramped up" as demand increases. And if the peak demand times aren't when the sun is up (like in Las Vegas), solar doesn't work.
