Do you understand that utilities are mandated to have a certain % of wind/solar generation?
I agree that wind and solar are NOT practical generation solutions. The only reason they work is that pricing is guaranteed thru subsidies. Take those away and wind and solar make no sense.
Sure, we have plenty of coal, and if you can scrub it so it's as clean as nuclear or even NG then maybe it's a viable solution. But you and I both know that's not going to happen. The sooner we drastically reduce coal generation the better.
And NG could work too if only they didn't inject some much toxic material (and precious water - especially where you live) into the earth and our aquifers in the extraction process.
It's not all about the money dude - but you don't sound like you care.
