Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

This is 3-5 times higher than real costs of utility PV today. If it's all so cheap then it doesn't require any subsidies... and private business should all over it without expecting taxpayer handouts... But fact is they wouldn't touch it without subsidies. It's all about using your horse sense, or ...

Once we've burned up all the hydrogen, how do we get water back? Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the whole universe. And it's never destroyed, it just binds to other elements like 2 Oxygen elements to create water... When you "burn" hydrogen its actually a reversing chemical process of com...
