My furnace does not run on gasoline. There is a difference between fuel for cars, and power for the electric grid. And it’s fair to point out that some, even most, of these clean electric cars will be powered by fossil fuels.It's brutally cold and it's going to remain that way for at least the next two weeks. With this weather we are only able to generate less than 5% of our electrical demand in MISO via renewable energy.
80% of our electricity is coming from coal and natural gas, and a little over 15% via nuclear.
How do people propose we are going to prevent people from freezing to death when we're forced to rely on 100% renewable energy?
I really think we need to revisit nuclear power.
