  • ClimatePonziLie reply Natural gas is better suited for home heating, and the supply of natural gas would be depleted much quicker if it is also used for power production over traditional Coal generated power. If you run out of coal it would be easy to use LNG for both heating and power production, but very hard to go the other route of using Coal to provide the same convenience as LNG for heating. It is most likely that if LNG replaces coal for power generation it won't stay inexpensive for long. Eliminating Coal for electrical energy will also eliminate competition that keeps the price of your home heating fuel competitive. Not to forget that fracking has the potential to destabilize the ground so when a earth quake happens the ground has been destabilized by the fracking operation so the earthquake could create even more damage.
  • ClimatePonziLie reply Wind or Solar power plant are part of a Ponzi Scheme, they need to rely on conventional coal power to make up the power supply when they don't. This fact that solar and wind are really a redundancy of the reliably of coal as our primary energy source. With either wind or solar your can't schedule a time that they will be running at peak efficiency or sitting idle. These Wind and Solar farms drive up the cost of the conventional power because the coal plant only collects the full cost of it's construction money when the other sources fail, making the initial capital cost of the coal fired plant take longer to be realized, as the coal plant built for the entire load. The cost of the redundant solar and wind should therefore pay a penalty for their lack of security to provide power as part of their cost.
  • ClimatePonziLie reply The power to charge your car, comes from the coal power plant. The 34 kWh to travel 100 miles which is a sales pitch. What is 34,000 Watts, a Microwave is 1400 Watts. 34/ 1.4 = 23 Microwave oven running in your home and the neighbors home, think of it every home across the city using the equivalence of 23 microwaves to recharge there car every night. The result is there will be a boom in power plant construction. Lets not forget the transmission system that would have to be increase five fold to handle all the additional capacity. What happen if the power goes out you won't be able to charge your car now the storm has you trapped. When 30 Million people were stranded when the power went out, or 700 Million in India. When everyone starts using power to charge their cars. The electrical system will collapse fast and the cost of rebuilding will ( Drive , LOL) your power cost for everything that you currently do through the roof, to say this is unexpected or is it a planned consequence. Wi...morend is unpredictable and Solar is a fake solution.
