    "Just deal with it" you mean all the lies oil companies have been feeding us?
    I realize oil and gas has been a necessity over the last 100 years because tech in solar and renewable was not there yet, but technology has taken over and is more efficient, way less pollution than coal or oil.
    Storage of power is the only thing holding us back. But, not so far off.
    My dad worked for a power utility. They have always had back up generators on hand - like forever in case one unit or two should shut down due to maintenance issues.
    So what's the problem?

    When they get storage down pat, it will be viable.... In some locations.

    I'm not against renewables, the just need to compete with the status quo. Use it where it works efficiently and economically.
    Take hydro out of the renewal category and you see the reality of other power sources..... I mean you know as well as I that there will never be another Hoover or Grand Coulee built. Dams are being removed not built.
    For your enjoyment... from 1927.
