The modern trend is to try and replace mineral fuel consumption with renewable energy. Wind and solar energy are regarded as such. What is apparently a well-kept secret is the simple fact that at this present moment it doesn’t work.
Germany is the guinea pig for this development. Forests are “cleared” (speak, leveled to the ground) to make way for “wind farms”. Not only are those ecotopes irreversibly destroyed; but the wind turbines themselves cause the death of literally, hundreds of thousands of birds, regardless of whether the species is on the endangered list. Germany is the world leader with wind and solar power generation.
But what the public is not informed about is that they had to build additional coal power stations to support this extravagant experiment. Not a chance of shutting down the existing coal power stations.
