Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

..... What this thread has demonstrated many times is that there now exist feasible alternatives for energy production that don't result in mutual destruction, largely thanks to visionary technical leadership from countries like Germany and companies like Tesla. The challenge is now primarily one o...

No...it is not known .
It is a theory, without scientific proof.

No , it is merely a widely held belief. The science is very much inconclusive.

For +2K we are "allowed" to burn less than 1/10th of the existing known(!) fossil fuel reserves, burning 20% of it will bring us in the +4K Scenario and after that it is unknown territory......

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Its pretty obvious that had SA sufficient reliable continuous generation capacity itself, none of this would have occurred. Its also obvious (to most of us and the experts ). that if they had retained sufficient synchronous generators, that would also have prevented the blackout. But the SA generati...

You dont have to look hard to see SA has plenty of generating capacity....1700MW of Wind, 1200 MW of Gas, 200MW of Diesel, and at least 500MW of rooftop solar. ...All to support a typical demand of 1500 MW with peaks of 2000MW.

You , like most of the RE enthusuasts, have conveniently ignored the CF issue again, and are only looking at "Nameplate" values.
