Why are wind and solar pushed so hard when storage is in its infancy?

Oliver Thomas
Oliver Thomas

Countries without large hydro energy components and without mountains to create hydro pump storage cannot as of now switch to solar and wind. Cannot as in “it is physically impossible”.

So why are people pushing Germany to phase out coal and nuclear at the same time, while nobody complains about natural gas?

Lets solve the climate issue by making energy that requires generations of storage of highly toxic radioactive materials, and powerplants that render massive areas radioactive wastelands if they fail.

Nuclear energy is garbage boomer tier energy.

That being said, if humans were actually smart we would have built our cities inside mountains. Conserves energy from insolation, and there are plenty of ways to secure air flow without reliance on technology.

Not that much, dude. The drive shafts in a wind turbine are stainless steel, the rudders are mostly carbon composites and the overall structure is made of steel and concrete.

Not sure where these toxic substances come in and why you think the turbines require massive amounts of "clean" energy to build. They do not.

As to solar panels, under new tech you can print them with organic material with a printing system on any surface, mostly glass or metal or anything really, even bricks.

LINDSEY HILSUM: It doesn't look very green. Rare earth processing in China is a messy, dangerous, polluting business. It uses toxic chemicals, acids, sulfates, ammonia. The workers have little or no protection.

But, without rare earth, Copenhagen means nothing. You buy a Prius hybrid car and think you're saving the planet. But each motor contains a kilo of neodymium and each battery more than 10 kilos of lanthanum, rare earth elements from China.

Green campaigners love wind turbines, but the permanent magnets used to manufacture a 3-megawatt turbine contain some two tons of rare earth. The head of China's Rare Earth Research Institute shows me one of those permanent magnets.

Chase Howard

There are good reasons to phase out nuclear energy. For instance, if you have overcapacity and other cheap energy sources.

Start with solar.

Solar is a fucking shit meme.

Mining the minerals (cadmium and tellurium) needed ends up strip mining and creating a similar amount of environmental destruction as the oil sands
Processing and Manufacturing the panels creates tons of toxic chemicals
Then you have maintenance required costs which requires potentially more of the above
And you have to replace them every now and then (10-15 yrs) because believe it or not, having panels in areas with wind/particles in the atmosphere etc. damages them
Which means go through the first two again
Its expensive as fuck

Nevermind
it takes up a ton of space - more than coal/oil/natural gas/hydroelectric/nuclear
its not efficient enough to meet current needs
batteries aren't sufficiently enough advanced
solar mirrors require heat engines/generators in order to convert thermodynamic energy to mechanical to electrical
all of which cost significant amounts of money, have varying efficiency, require cooling, and maintenance frequently

God forbid they use Gallium Arsenide which is used for high efficiency cells. The name alone should tell you what is wrong with it.

On top of that, you need the infrastructure to redirect all of the energy they are producing into city centers, rural areas, etc. You would also need to produce a large amount of lithium to contain the energy that they would not be able to produce during dusk. Lithium is a toxic product, and its production creates toxic by-products. In the end of solar power you basically have to dustbowl huge swaths of land to cover the area to produce enough energy for the growing population.

Also, examples of great solar usage? All lies. Germany is one that always pops up. But only 7% of their electricity is produced by solar. The vast majority is brown coal at 25%, hard coal at 18%, and nuke at 15%.

Wind runs into similar issues.

Yeah. Why should I care how the Chinese mine rare minerals? I would care if all those chemicals they used would somehow fly around the world and rain down everywhere, but they don't. They stay local, they contaminate locally. And China is actually cracking down on the worst mining pollution and has adopted more modern tech for it.

So yes, omg global climate, omg global warming, omg city pollutions, we gotta tackle this shit, not the local contamination in some remote Tibetian mine.

Since I forgot to put an example with this one here's the efficiency of Solar:.

Burning trash via an incinerator. You get a ton of energy out of burning refuse. 280k tons (308k US tons) nets you around 170k mwh on a 5 acre plot. If you got more trash you can easily make more than that.

To put this in comparison - the Sarnia photovoltaic power plant in Ontario - produces 200k mwh. This is on a 1.1k acre plot.

Hence, you could build 220 incinerators producing electricity in the same place as a single solar plant with an output comparable to Sarnia.

much incineration exhaust fumes
You use lime scrubbers among other things. Bagging etc. There are a lot of things used to control emissions. Unless you are really a part of the industry you don't learn about it. Like lets take a look at sulfur emissions for example:

You split it into two forms

Regenerative
Non Regenerative

For Regenerative, you have Wellman-Lord, DESONOX as wet processes and activated carbon as a dry process.

For non regenerative, you have more options with sorbent ejection as dry, sprayer-dryer absorption as semi-dry, and lime/sodium hydroxide/ammonia/hydrogen peroxide/sea water all as wet options.

NOx has things like SCR, EGR etc.

CO2 has extraction processes, carbon recapture, chemical stripping/solvent absorption, etc.

This is all ignoring basic tenants like bag filters, electrostatic filtration etc.

Most modern plants use multiple if not all of the above. Especially incinerators as the environmental regulations on them are stricter than those on oil/natural gas plants/refineries.

If you want an idea how efficient modern waste to energy plants are, Mitsubishi Plant A posted their emissions and contrasted them with the Euro 2000 Regulations:

Emission = Euro 2000 Reg = Plant A Emission
Dioxins = 0.1 ng-TEQ/Nm3 = 0.00011 ng-TEQ/Nm3
Dust = 10 mg/Nm3 = 3 mg/Nm3
HCl = 10 mg/Nm3 = 2 mg/Nm3
SOx = 50 mg/Nm3 = 4 mg/Nm3
NOx = 200 mg/Nm3 = 110 mg/Nm3

That plant A runs 3 units, that take 300 tons/day. General rule of thumb 500 kWh per ton. So its a lot of energy produced.

WtE also have to test toxicity of fly ash/bottom ash produced. If there are hazardous levels of lead, cadmium, copper or zinc, you have to follow different hazardous waste disposal regulations in order to prevent leaching into underground aquifers.

The biggest issue with WtE tends to be odor pollution. Some plants deal with this via negative pressure zones, but not all plants are equipped to do so.

Sometimes other processes are used to create syngas as well.

Its quite an in depth procedure, but like I said before, no one really gets educated on it unless you want to work in the field.

Lets talk a bit about wind:

requires a fuckton of space
mechanically quite useless - doesn't provide a ton of energy
alter the qualities of wind currents - winds that pass through a turbine are slower and drier that winds that don't
the change in quality of winds affects agriculture etc.
winds can stay still for periods of a time
can't really store the energy well

If you want an example of how retardedly useless wind is, look at some shit from the 2016 election.

nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/bernie-sanders-calls-shutting-down-new-york-nuke-plant-n550331
Sanders wants to shut down a nuclear power plant that provides 25 per cent of New York City's power in favor of renewables.

In order to replace that one plant with wind turbines you would need to build 140% more turbines than New York has built in the last 20 years. If you wanted to replace nuclear in New York entirely, it shoots up to 550% more turbines than New York has built in the last 20 years. The sheer footprint of that is completely ridiculous, never mind the wasted resources, maintenance costs, lower efficiency etc.

This is also ignoring that you probably have no idea how oil or natural gas plants work.

If you want greener than fossil fuels go nuclear.
If you want greener than nuke go thorium.

Ian Cruz
Ian Cruz

Not 500%. 550% more than the past 20 years. There are currently 542. To meet the demand they would need to build another 2981. Bringing the new total up to 3523 turbines. There is already roughly 58,000 acres taken up by the current 542. The construction would take up another 321,000 more acres giving you a grand total of 378,000 acres wasted by this shit.

Keep in mind those are approximate numbers as many wind farms don't list their acreage in publicly available format.

By comparison nuclear, including decommissioned plants has taken up 2921 acres exactly. Hell, had Shoreham gone as intended it would have prevented 3 million tons of CO2 emissions per year. And it's half the size of two of the plants included in that nuclear acreage.

much land usage to get uranium
Crow Butte is a good example. It's only 3,300 acres on the lease and in situ leach takes up only 1,100 of the lease. Uranium isn't like the fucking Alberta tar sands. It's quite small scale.

And this is all conveniently ignoring thorium.

South of yoorop, there is a desert of the size of the USA which could help us to reduce carbon emissions. Our researchers are actively searching for ways to reduce the costs of solar energy. Pic related is a solar power plant which could produce electricity at night too. Without the heavy taxes on electricity, it would be cheap enough already.
The problem is that the sahara dies not belong to us and is mostly in countries too unsafe for investors.

why not to listen to environmentalists"

They have no knowledge of the processes in which resources for "clean" energy are accrued let alone the processes which are utilized to meet their final production stage.

They have no knowledge of the demonstrably significant environmental impacts of "clean" energy projects due not only to production but also maintenance and operation.

They have no knowledge as to the scale of which the "clean" energy processes must operate at in order to meet similar energy demands of "dirty" fossil fuels/nuke/etc.

They have no knowledge as to environmental regulations as to which plants must pass in order to operate.

They have no knowledge as to emissions standards as to which plants must meet in order to operate.

They have no knowledge as to how say "high" emissions are the mark of poor maintenance/operation but immediately assume it is industry standard.

They have no knowledge as to American/Canadian/European energy consumption rates and their breakdown as to what industries contribute to these standards.

They have no knowledge as to various anti-pollution mechanisms ranging from operational procedures to control devices utilized to lower emissions.

They have no knowledge as to how the industries work in particular - that is how oil and gas processing/catalytic cracking provides various needs, the analysis of combustion of fuel, or even how Nuclear facilities provide medical isotopes.

They have no knowledge of how significant government funding is allocated towards "clean" energy and its nature of propping up a largely floundering industry.

They have no regard for how their implementation of their ideals will decimate lower social/economic class individuals - and if implemented cross borders, will slow the industrial progression of nations outside of their homeland.

They innately oppose outputs seen as "dirty" without any comparison to their "clean" output in regards to efficiency.

And Hydro?

Fucks up aquatic ecosystems
reservoirs are stagnant compared to rivers and have larger sediment deposits
This means you get excess algae/weeds and have to either harvest or introduce new aquatic species to control it otherwise native species are displaced
reservoirs evaporate faster
downstream evaporate faster
Which means plant and animal life get harmed so you have to have operators monitoring send adjusting frequently to prevent it
reservoirs water is low in dissolved oxygen and temp which Fucks up animal life
Now you need an aerating turbine to fix this issue
emits around 0.5 pounds of carbon dioxide per kwh due to decomposition of vegetation and soil
Natural gas in a decent plant emits 0.6, so it's really not that much greener. A shitty plant will run 2.0 but you get more closer to 0.6/0.8 for natural gas.
Fucks up fish migration
takes up significant portion of land
terraforms the land around it which Fucks up animal/plant biomes
may require flooding which destroys habitats/agricultural land
may require displacement of local population
fuck ups result in huge floods that kills fuck tons of people
is very location oriented in efficiency - can range from 0.25 acres per mwh to 2000 acres per mwh

Basically it's sold as being green, but really isn't and divests future generations from the beauty of the natural environment while Fucking every animal around it. Plus sometimes you have to deal with delta p, and that fucking sucks dick.
