This glossy attempt to sell renewables omits the fact that, as intermittent sources, they depend on gas turbine plants for backup power, and that's just pumping more greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere. Nuclear doesn't, and it's reliable and statistically safer than all other energy platforms...check it out.

I don’t know why trump is against this. I mean, think of all the jobs that could be made building solar panels, wind turbines, and geothermal power plants!

I came across videos to another renewable energy technology not listed in this video, but looks to be the ultimate - even better than fusion energy. They have a long name but I remember them by H2IL. They have some brain storming videos worth looking at.

Power can be just, or even more, reliable than the grid! You just need the right set up by professionals to take advantage of your location.

Solar power runs out at night and wind power runs out when the wind stops blowing or even when the wind blows too hard. Hydropower runs out during drought.

http://www.ted.com What's the key to using alternative energy, like solar and wind? Storage -- so we can have power on tap even when the sun's not out and the wind's not blowing. In this accessible, inspiring talk, Donald Sadoway takes to the blackboard to show us the future of large-scale batteries that store renewable energy. As he says: "We need to think about the problem differently. We need to think big. We need to think cheap."
