    Government attempts to pick a winner, has predictably failed yet again.

    Green energy has failed. Ask Europe, where the country which has the most wind farms, Denmark, also has the highest electricity costs....

    I asked Europe, specifically Germany, and they said you're full of scheisse.


    In fact, Germany set a record the other day by achieving 74% of their power demand/needs via renewable energy sources.


    If only we could harness the wind power coming from the fossil fuel-loving conservotrolls like yourself...we could light up Las Vegas for years.

    Heh, heh, heh ... which is why that wingnut wonderland of TX, the state you love to point to as a shining example of wingnuttyism, leads the country in developing wind power.

    Have they lost their wingnut minds?

    Maybe not, but their water supply has certainly turned tail and vanished in the wake of a years-long drought due in part to climate change.


    And those fracking earthquakes don't help matters either.

    So you want to double electricity prices? is that success?


    German power prices highest in the EU


    The rising costs are due to the expansion of renewable energy as well as the necessary grid expansion and the subsidization of solar and wind power. In early May, a study by energy experts at McKinsey suggested that electricity consumers would face 21.5 billion Euros in costs in 2020 caused by the transition to renewable energy.


    We already have the highest electricity prices in the EU today,” said Bechtold. In France, the cost of electricity is about 40 percent lower.


    The German industry could not afford such a price difference in the long run.


    Can you say "FAIL"?

    IMHO all forms of natures ability to provide green-energy should continue to be utilized and researched.


    Did you know that Maine is considering 'Tidal Flow' devices that will produce electric energy?


    And what about 'Solar Energy'?


    Florida has many homes & businesses with roof-top solar panels.


    Even 'Most Water' can be distilled with simple solar devices. (check YouTube)


         Yep .. Those are the ways to go ...





    Yes, the next energy revolution will come from some 'greedy' private sector person experimenting in his garage...


    Not from some crony capitalist crook sucking up billions in tax dollars for failed windmills or solar panels....


    You see these Alaska reality shows, where people live off the grid in the wilderness , and dont want a Government handout, solar panels actually do make economic sense....

    "Due in part to climate change"

    "In part"....what a load of crap....every drought from this year forward is now "in part" caused by man? Thanks for the latest climate alarmist spin.

    Fracking earthquakes are just imaginary...think of them as  Mother Earth laughing at the foolishness of green energy zealots and climate change crooks...

    Also highest GDP and cost of living, so utilities naturally follow suit.

    The German people demanded it, because not everything is about money. Sometimes, it's about securing a better life and environment for the next generation.

    But you wouldn't understand it, concerned as you are for only dollars and cents.

    Climate change is causing drought in the entire SW U.S., including TX, which has been in severe drought since at least 2010.  

    The frack-quakes are all too real and likely to get worse as fracking continues unabated....

    Bad news for progressives-the fracking revolution shows no signs of slowing down....!!!

    Forbes May 4:

    "Despite official predictions that the U.S. energy boom will pop like a bubble in the next 20 years, people engaged in drilling for oil and gas—from the financiers to the frackers—see no end to boom times or low gas prices, industry insiders said in Chicago Friday.

    Late last year the International Energy Agency predicted the U.S. would surpass Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world’s largest energy producer by 2015 but would run out of gas, so to speak, in the 2020s. The U.S. Energy Information Administration made a similar assessment  last year, predicting production would decline after 2020 and then increased demand would drive up gas prices.

    But such glum assessments underestimate not only the amount of domestic shale oil and gas, but also the ingenuity of those  tapping it, the insiders suggested Friday at the Energy Forward conference hosted by the Chicago Booth Energy Group.

    “It’s amazing how much is out there, and we have very high confidence on most of these plays that they’re going to be very long lived,” said Robert Beck, who explores for Anadarko Petroleum Corp.

    Most shale oil wells today start strong but taper off quickly compared to conventional wells, and some cease production in 7.5 to 8 years. But drilling technologies are evolving quickly to change that, said James King, vice president for unconventional multi-stage completions with Baker Hughes, an oilfield services company.

    There are a lot of bright minds working today to make the wells have higher rates of production, slower decline curves, better terminal production and at less cost,” King said. “In the long term I think there will be technological solutions to fast decline curves and short-life wells.”

    The U.S. will set records for oil production this year, King said. ”I would expect it’s sustainable. The technology didn’t just happen, it wasn’t just switched on, it evolved over time, and we’ll have better technologies than we did before.”

    New technologies are likely to be employed re-fracking wells that seem depleted to current technologies.

    Drought, what a new notion....why, we never had any doughts at all, before the 2000s....did we?

    So every drought is now caused "in part" by ...drum roll   "climate change" ...as is every severe weather event...

    Too bad, if fracking continues, no more free subsidies for windmills and solar panels and unicorns...

    There is no way anyone can make such a claim. If that were the case, then what do you say about the record cold weather much of the nation experienced this winter.

    It is stuff like this that makes me skeptical about climate change. Actually not about climate change itself, but the "solutions" being pushed on us by those with a political agenda who have a habit of lying to get what they want.
