dj_bigbird: I assume by "onshore wind" they're referring to windmills that kill lots of birds and for solar PV and CSP plants, they're talking about places that cook birds.
MrSteve007: As I've said on fark many times before - almost everything directly in my life is powered by solar power: house, work, car. If I can do that in perpetually cloudy Seattle, anyone can.My full return on investment will be July 2017 - a little over three years from now. After that, every watt I generate is money in my pocket. Considering most of the equipment is warrantied for another 22 years - I expect to save a load of cash.

Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: vernonFL: Of course it CAN be done, the question is whether or not we have the political will to do so.As long as extractive energy companies are dropping mad cash on their favorite political candidates, the whole plan is an uphill battle.
FLMountainMan: durbnpoisn: Everyone knows that we humans are killing the environment with our usage of fossil fuels.What exactly is "killing the environment"? We aren't killing much of anything, from a grand view. Changing it, surely. But we began changing the environment the second we descended from the trees.
dj_bigbird: places that cook birds.
StopLurkListen: You really care about birds? Then direct your attention to something that will have a bigger effect.
Begoggle: dj_bigbird: I assume by "onshore wind" they're referring to windmills that kill lots of birds and for solar PV and CSP plants, they're talking about places that cook birds.Also "windows" kill birds, and don't even get me started on the "cats", so obviously those things can't be done either.Coal and nuclear waste is good for birds.
draypresct: I really don't understand 40% of Michigan's energy coming from land-based wind farms. Michigan is a terrible place for these.
Hollie Maea: Destructor: Nuclear power & Reprocessing.Too expensive.
AngryDragon: This.Treehugger. The RightWingNews.com of the left.
