‘Green’ Magic: Wind & Solar ‘Transition’ The Greatest Con Job in History

Elon Musk convinced South Australians to spend $150 million on a battery with a nominal capacity of 100MW, that could power the state for all of four minutes.

STOP THESE THINGS

Sunset and calm weather mean that wind and solar will never be meaningful power sources. Talk about ‘storage’ overcoming their chaotic intermittency, is just that: talk. The sum total of the world’s grid scale storage capacity for electricity is risible.

Granted, this was about nine years ago, but that history shows someone who, at least then, wasn’t exactly open-minded about certain issues. (Oh hell, let’s just say he was a “bigot”.)

Now the Times fired Quinn Norton as a tech writer over her history of questionable tweets, but decided to retain tech editor Sarah Jeong, who had an equally questionable history of bigoted postings on Twitter (see all my posts on Jeong here).
