Wind and solar also bring little to no value to electrical grids. When the sun doesn’t shine, and the wind doesn’t blow at set speeds, it destroys a grid’s spinning reserve mode, peaking mode, and backup mode. Germany, Denmark, Great Britain, South Australia, California, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and the latest government to go all in for renewables — Virginia — have all experienced blackouts, higher electrical prices, and weakened grids.
British prime minister Boris Johnson catches the coronavirus, and his country struggles with an unstable grid over widespread adoption of renewables for electricity. In the age of COVID-19, those are life-and-death matters if electricity is hampered for any length of time.
Renewables then make no sense when the entire world is sick. Only using Warren Buffett’s logic does chaotic wind power bring financial wealth: “We get a tax credit if we build a lot of wind farms. That’s the only reason to build them. They don’t make sense without the tax credit.”By Todd Royal
