This is what it looks like when renewable energy expands exponentially.

According to the  USGS U.S. Wind Turbine Database there are 58,449 turbines with a total rated capacity of 91,115 MW, providing 6.5 percent of US. Electrical energy. Estimating the average percentage of electricity per number of turbines to double that to achieve 13% electricity from wind would require an estimated 116,000 Wind Turbines, To provide 50%  roughly 464,000 Wind … Continue reading This is what it looks like when renewable energy expands exponentially.

How Much Land Does Nuclear, Wind and Solar Really Need?

 "Based on an objective and transparent analysis of our sustainable energy choices, we have come to the evidence-based conclusion that nuclear energy is a good option for biodiversity conservation (and society in general) and that other alternatives to fossil fuels should be subjected to the same cost–benefit analyses (in terms of biodiversity and climate outcomes, … Continue reading How Much Land Does Nuclear, Wind and Solar Really Need?
