Thank you for the compliment about the renewables article. I thought it was a reasonable middle of the road analysis about energy policy.

Thanks for being my friend with zero consecutive days.

You're welcome. Have a great day.

I pumped your article on rooftop solar power.

by Mudsprings  Jun 20, 2014

I only pump friends like t-w and sks1586 below. The others are my friends, too, except Ramaniac.

Howdy DOS! Actually I said "Sorry, but I have no trust in much of anything written for and put forth by the Sierra Club." As to the Scientific American story, it was much the same, with supporting quotes for the writers opinion from the Sierra Club as well. I don't consider stories as "likeable" or dislikeable anyway, I look for facts, not the Eco-imperialist mantra from the Sierra Club et al.

Don't worry looking it up Doc. I already know. My 94,000 house (20 years ago) would require 80,000 of solar panels AND I would have to drastiacally reduce my load. Hard to do with a wife and 5 kids. Ten years on batteries and panels? I highly doubt it.

How do you know they are the ones you installed? I value your opinion on Solar since you are an obvious expert. Why do they cost so much? How many batteries do I need to run the exact amount of power I get now? How many solar panels with that take. ? My house is only 1660 square feet. How much do you think it would cost to go solar, and enjoy the same amount. Thanks for the information, and also, how many years for the break even mark?

Now that I think about it, it's just like the people that are in this country or in the world. They do nothing compared to what I or others have done or what we do with alternatives or to improve fuel efficiency of their own vehicles, yet so much could be done and it pays for itself, but too many are brainwashed into thinking it doesn't work. Then there's the other side of the coin that wants $5 or more for a gallon of gas, which would and will only make life more difficult for the masses of us below those at the top. Can you afford $4.50 for a gallon of gas, $5.75 for a gallon of milk, $2.99 for a bag of potatoes, $2.79 for a dozen eggs or a loaf of bread? It'll be worse than that within the next three to five years, 10 max. Just wait. I've been right before and I'll be right again.

Even with the power companies, it still boils down to them not doing enough in time. It costs less over time with a turbine, solar, tidal or wave energy than with a coal, natural gas or nuclear power plant.
