Solar is great if it’s used on roofs, carports, other dead-space, but not so great on “solar farms”, where acres of greenery (which sucks in that bad ol’ CO2) is plow- or paved over to install them.
I just looked up the conversion efficiency of chlorophyll (you can tell this is BLF) and got:
Quote:
For actual sunlight, where only 45% of the light is in the photosynthetically active wavelength range, the theoretical maximum efficiency of solar energy conversion is approximately 11%.
from Wikipedia:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Photosynthetic_efficiency

Commercial solar cells routinely achieve 20% these days, so the solar panels could actually be better for the environment than the plants they displace, as long as the power they produce is displacing power from sources that emit carbon dioxide.

I do agree that it’s better to put solar panels on dead spaces like rooftops, though – that’s a win-win for power and plant life.

Much of the money, time and effort going into solar, wind, etc. power recently should have been put into nuclear fission 30 years ago. Unfortunately there was a concerted misinformation campaign and extensive lobbying to kill it. Current nuclear tech is leagues beyond what was available for most of the 20th century but now its been made too expensive to really switch in that direction in the US.

There is a reason most of Europe and China have already made a significant switch toward it, its the only power source remotely close to be able replacing our dependence on fossil fuels for the foreseeable future.

Other renewable sources are a great supplement but they will NEVER achieve what the world needs on their own, even if tech advances in rapid leaps and bounds.

There have been too many highly publicized nuclear incidents for people to feel comfortable with fizzy power in their local neighborhood.
Maybe iffn it were Way Far Away they might get more comfortable….after awhile.

Same thing here, but for renewables.

Why did we throw money into fossil fuels when we could’ve developed better batteries, better storage methods, much more efficient vehicles, a better VHV infrastructure(750-1000kV), distributed country power generation, etc.

And the coverage of those events was completely propagandized, without any analysis of why or how they really happened. Any plant built now would be exponentially more safe than Fukushima, unless a bunch of people completely forgot about natural factors such as earthquakes and tsunamis again.

Fossil fuel power plants are statistically much more dangerous, and release more radiation. Seriously.

There was fair analysis, but how many people were presented with it, or had the resources to find it?

Think of it this way, if you asked people on the street how dangerous “ecig batteries” are – AKA the ones nearly all of us use in our flashlights – what do you think the average response would be after seeing nothing but reports of “Man Blows Jaw Off” in the news?

Electric cars are not the solution.

They are too expensive… They need a lot of time to recharge. Not all people have a garage or a place to recharge them…

And IMO…. They are dangerous because of the batteries used… Lithium based..

We need a better battery technology

The most ugly place in the world! Surprised

You mean lithium ion I hope? Lithium-ion IMO, is a safer technology than gasoline powered cars.

Too expensive… for now. I’d rather pay more for a car than contributing to higher levels of pollution and stupidity(literally!).

There are level 2 chargers, and level 3 chargers. I’ve managed to convince my old apartment owner to install 1x Level 3 charger and many level 2 chargers, since the electric service was already very capable and absolute overkill.

I’m going to call this different solutions for different jobs and people. Large cities, go small electric for size and pollution. Rural, it’s still liquid fuel for now. In between, well that’s up to you. Electric is getting the research and if my roof can charge my car great. Now the other tech we’re looking at is OnStar and other similar products. With OnStar we can stop your car, tell how many are in it with the seat belt sensors. How fast, what direction and listen to your conversation. If it’s synced with the phones then that data came be combed through to give an idea of who is in the car. High speed chases might not be an option for runners for much longer. No plates no problem a future ping to the car will give it’s data. Currently the state of Texas is ironing out the legal agreements with the providers as are other states, many already have those agreements. Wire tapping warrants are near impossible with cell phones as they are often changed out with drug dealers. A warrant written to include car syncing allows us to keep track of those new phones. Often from first call up to when it’s tossed out the window. But that right now is more on a Federal level. Another bit of new tech, if you have a warrant and start your car it will inform us of it and your location. When a warrant is entered these days your name, aliases, address, description, picture, finger prints, vehicles owned along with a bit more are entered.

Whatever technology is more or less already there, they just wait until the right time:

 

A Glass Battery That Keeps Getting Better? @ IEEE Spectrum

A related, older article in Spanish (https://forococheselectricos.com/2018/06/john-b-goodenough-bateria-electrolito-solido-revolucionaria.html) includes this cycle life to capacity graph:

 

 

Which looks pretty good, by the way. We'll see. 

The human mind, and its programming, is at the forefront of a particular battle of The Light vs evil dark forces. Nearly every human being on this beautiful planet “Earth” has some sort of negative mind programming in its mind.

Vague recollection, but some mobster sued the feds and/or OnStar because when they’d be listening in to what was going on in the car, any press-for-help would be disabled, potentially causing him harm or even death in the case of a wreck.

While I like the monthly telematics that’s included from when I bought my car, once it runs out, all it takes is unplugging the 3 connectors from the box near the rear wheel-well to disable it entirely. No need to pull fuses and take out whatever else is on the same circuit.

Whoa… can’t believe I found it. ?

It’s not even worth de-bunking what’s been said in the first few posts as for people to be here in 2019 and still believing some of this tired old crap shows either:
1) A total unwillingness to accept something new even in the face of overwhelming evidence
2) Stupidity to the level that cannot be argued with.

Electric cars are our future, like it or not!

I’m speechless, I don’t know what the fuck I’m reading in this thread. I haven’t seen so much condensed stupidity in one place in a long time. Jesus Christ I thought some of you guys were smart.

Mmmkay, the other day I was following a thread ( Suggestions for vape forums ??? ) which surreptitiously got deleted with barely any blaming or bad vibes, imho. Not to be a wet blanket, but this thread already has enough so…

Well, I actually like this thread a lot.

I learned quite a bit of stuff from this thread:

1. Clean air is very important. Which is why we should have very tight regulation for companies that emit anything. A carbon tax ON companies that emit massive amounts of CO2 directly(petroleum/gas/coal producers+ importers).

2. IFR reactors seem very nice. Much more efficient fuel wise, and even less waste. REAL recycling FTW.

Yeh, IFRs are a thing of beauty in comparison. Canada made a start with their CANDU reactors, but IFRs take it to the next level. Clean nuclear power and the ability to get rid of existing radwaste.

Problem is paperwork and “It’s The Way Things Have Always Been Done”, ie, you can only build tried’n‘true reactors based on 1950s tek.

Now… they still need to beef up the grid bigtime to accommodate all those EVs, but I’ll leave that for someone else to p&m over.

Well, why not go with the VHV route?

Just going to 750kV(like Quebec) would actually lower losses nicely, while 1000kV transmission would just be icing on the cake.

Global Warming. Seas Rising etc. etc.

For god’s sake The planet was here millions of yrs b4 the current race of ants apperared (us).
Plus. Hopefully.
It’ll be here for a coupla billion after we done and dusted.
ALL gone.

Once the current fossil supplied have gone. Regardless of what there greenies say.
We’ll be back on the Nuclear cycle.

Solar. Wind etc will NEVER be capable of running todays modern industries.
Any thinking otherwise are real dreamers.

I was sleeping over US and UK nuclear missile tips in W.Germany
back in the ’50’s.
We’re still here.

THAT… IS… the only constant power supply on this planet.
will cover the next 1000 yrs plus.
Unless Aliens appear and give us some materials/technology from the future.

We only a speck in both time and space. Infinitesimal?? hmmm.

Start counting the moons. Planets and stars in THIS Galaxy alone. forget the rest.
and come back in a hundred years and let me know where you got to.

Something about specks, on specks, on specks. Ad Infinitum.
Nothing we can do. apart blowing the bloody thing up will affect it.

We’re all just existing on a very thin crust of cooler material in a belt around it.

We go too far.

Shrug. Wriggle. Plates move.
We all gone.
Then it’ll start all over again in another coupla million or so yrs..

Seasons. Temp’s. Surface coverings. from Water. to Tropics, to desert have been occuring in cycles, for much longer than the current vegetable/meat have been around.

What we ever do will be negligible.
and if any of these doomsayers convince any of you otherwise.
well. Get your IQ checked.
It’s ALL just instigated by Money and politics.

We’re all only here on borrowed time.
Divide a human average, 75yrs By around 4.5 billion.

That’s your. and mine. speck in time.

“clik”.
That was 10000 of us.

Chuckle…. Enjoy.
and install enuff solar on home to run it. we have.

Got a couple solar powered units. One for our outlying shed lighting and power outlets. Another for my CPAP.
Our last power outage (last week) was 3.5 hours. We made coffee using the larger unit (1500W continuous).
We watched a couple movies while we waited (49” Samsung/Android 9.0 TV Box). The CPAP unit (300W) worked fine for this.
One can charge the other.

It seems most people here read the headline and jumped to a conclusion that is consistent with your prior beliefs.
but it was misleading and inaccurate.
There were three vehicles in pursuit and all three stopped the pursuit.

The police department in Fremont put out a statement to correct the record, stating they are happy with the Tesla

I agree. Being alive means you're gonna use some energy, and you're gonna pollute a certain amount.

To my way of thinking, unbridled population growth is the biggest environmental threat. If population is allowed to grow unchecked, in the long run, no amount of conservation/clean energy/etc. will prevent ecological degradation.

We're talking about a declining quality of life, and not necessarily human extinction.

I heard an interesting speaker at the Commonwealth Club a year or two ago explain that limits on the amount of potable water on the planet will impose a limit on human population later in this century. For poor countries in Africa and south Asia (including India) and many other places, getting clean drinking water will become harder and harder. The incredible increases in lifespan that those places have seen over the last 75 years—due in large part to fertilizers and modern agricultural methods—will begin to be lost. People will die younger. This speaker predicted a leveling out of the population at around 9 billion. That ain't extinction, but 10 to 20 years off your life certainly qualifies a reduction in its quality.

In the first world, you may not even notice that the quality of life has declined. More and more, for instance, we now have to eat salmon that are grown in the pens of "fish farms." Do you think a farmed salmon—one that swims back and forth in its pen—tastes the same as a wild salmon that roam the oceans freely? I don't. Many of our children and grandchildren, however, will never have tasted wild salmon. They won't even know that their quality of life has diminished, because they won't know what they are missing.
