Open Forum: Renewable illusion


The renewable energy crowd creates a dangerous illusion. The illusion that middle class life can continue at some level of luxury and ease. That electricity for motors, electronics and lights will be available continually.  That using “renewable” energy, we are not assaulting the earth’s resources and other life forms.  That because it is “renewable,” it is clean and green. That because it is “sustainable,” it can go on indefinitely.
