Re: German Energy-TheNeverEnding Story*

Notice how they are called Renewable energy portfolios? Under most of these laws, nuclear is purposefully excluded as a clean energy source.

NC is #4 in the country on solar! About 5% of the US solar power.

Well, it depends on where you get your data. EIA data is of November 2015. SEIA data is Q2 2016.

Re: German Energy-TheNeverEnding Story*

Re: German Energy-TheNeverEnding Story*

I have no quarrel with your post; however, I think there may be no greenhouse gas savings in using natural gas over coal because of leakage in its production. Perhaps this problem can be overcome. Still there are good reasons to use natural gas [more]
