Any intelligent, nonemotional person realizes we can’t get rid of fossil fuels because we need their energy output to power our economy in the near and distant future. Only recently we saw the drawback of a form of green energy. Texas was hit with a sudden extreme cold snap and part of their energy grid of wind power (which provided about 25% of electric power), completely failed as the wind turbines froze up and couldn’t produce any needed energy. It’s the same with unreliable solar energy. If we have extended periods of cloudy, non-sunny weather, those solar panels will not produce any energy. Of course, we should look for alternative forms of energy besides fossil fuels, but we should not put our heads in the sand and attempt to do away with them.
