Why do these Climate Changers hate us so much?
The climate/RE cult’s latest mantra “net-zero”, apparently means wind and solar connected to batteries or pumped hydro. The notion has it that wind and solar’s hopeless intermittency can be overcome by a few TWh’s worth of giant lithium-ion batteries or, where geography and hydrology permit, pumped hydro systems.
The latter model involves using wind and solar to pump water uphill into turkey’s nest dams so that, when the sun sets and/or calm weather sets in, hydro power will merrily fill the inevitable daily gaps in wind/solar power production and keep the grid up and running.
Well, that’s the story, anyway.
The wind/pumped hydro model is at the heart of the “net-zero” energy generation systems being pumped by politicians and rent seekers, alike.
In a cooking show, ‘here’s one we prepared earlier moment’, a large-scale wind and pumped hydro experiment has been playing out on an island in the Atlantic, El…
