#6 – Myth: Solar power systems are simply unreliable
Insert — Most of this “debunking” is simply made up. Overcast days, heat and battery/inverter replacement are costs embedded in a solar power system. But comparable costs are embedded in any energy production scheme. While coal power is definitely cheap, without the need for plant maintenance it could be cheaper, with that “nightmare” making up about 27 percent of the total cost/kWh of coal-fired electricity. LOW-maintenance is actually a selling point for solar power, one I’ve yet to hear invalidated.
Jumping to conclusion is rarely a good move, especially when one illustrates the illogic of the conclusion in the very evidence one provides for having jumped to it! Here we have an Unknown Conservative Blogger taking a very measured, scientific statement and using it to declare absolutely that “It was all a hoax” in regard to anthropogenic global warming. The facts stated, as clearly said, are for a relatively short time period which is not as significant scientifically as longer periods. We’ve already been using fossil-fuel power for more than a century and, without some serious change, will be using it far into the future. Global Warming is, has, and will continue to be a major reason for concern for global societies. Manipulated “sound bites” used as jumping points for absurd, very unscientific conclusions are the tools of chicanery and should go unheeded.
