Yes, but don't you see?  All he does is make self promotionmal negativism
about solar and wind and their optomistically underestimated costs but then
he does not offer one single alternative solution to the global problems of
continued reliance on dwindling fossil fuels.

What is the point of complaining about he cost of solar and wind if you
don't have an alternative?  What everyone needs to learn from this is that
there are no cheap solutions as we run out of fossil fuels.  SO we are
either going to pay more now, or pay a LOT MORE later.

Sticking our heads in the sand and doing nothing but
burn-baby-burn-more-carbon (since the shooting end game will come in the
next generation) is not something I want to leave to my kids.  Though some
will say the shooting has already begun...
