California’s Green Energy Mandate
Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/07/15
California passed a stupid law requiring 1/3 of its energy usage be “green” energy and Beers with Demo has some crazy numbers to show the stupidity of the law. 129 square miles of solar energy fields and 1800 square miles of wind energy fields. Or basically a 13-mile by 10-mile field of solar panels and a 45-mile by 40-mile field of windmills. But you can’t do that because the tortoises won’t let you. And then you have all the power transmission lines. And the megatons of steel (which would invariably be bought from Communist China). And the scarce rare earth elements which also come from Communist China.
But don’t worry none, Californians. You won’t need eyesores of that size in your desert. The Liberals are driving business out of California at a very high rate, so undoubtedly your energy usage will drop. Thus, the need for these massive fields will also drop.
The Progressives at work, making Entropy progress far more rapidly.
