Wind & Solar Reality Check: Why Intermittent & Unreliable Renewables Can’t Save the Planet

There’s only one problem with intermittent wind and solar, at scale they’ve never worked and never will. Sure, powering an isolated farm house or pumping water for livestock with a few solar panels makes practical and economic sense.
