  • All the Republicans have is show.  They haven't had any actual substance during my lifetime.  The sad things is, that's all it takes for their supporters to vote for them, and they don't seem to ...
  • I suppose you could buy one of these. https://www.mcmaster.com/#95150a170/=16w86mg
  • Not really necessary.  A regular coupler will do the job satisfactorily with such light equipment. If you're really hard-over on something that is wide, get a 1" or so solid aluminum round bar, cut ...
  • It's not being replaced with nothing.  It's being replaced with already-built stuff. So what?  These are planned additions.  You might get more or less, but it's going to be a lot either way. Then ...
  • That's mid-to-high 90s. I wouldn't call that a lot of loss. Denver. I can see two coal plants from my office building - Cherokee in Denver and Valmont in Boulder. Of course, since I work in wind, I ...
  • Because they aren't facts. The transmission grid is very efficient (mid to high 90s).  And wind tends to be farther from load centers because people don't like to live where it's windy.  But we ...
  • No, neither of those things are true, much less without "doubt".
  • It's labeled at the bottom of the thread. There is analysis, however, that indicates that adding wind to the mix makes the grid more reliable, not less. But that's not what's happening.  1600MW of ...
  • Already am.  You get back to me when you're able to have an informed discussion.  Start by reading the very basic information I provided below.
  • I guess that means the later. I provided some such data below.  However, the fact that you even asked for something so dumb indicates further that you don't know what you are talking about. FYI, ...
  • Mine is as good or better than that, and it was taken from here. Your opinion. I do photography primarily for documentation. But, okay, fine. Have an emotional shot. I have thousands more.
  • "We conclude that coal plant retirements are unlikely to impact ERCOT’s reliability. As we discuss in this paper, there are safeguards in place to ensure that reliability issues that may arise can ...
  • Distributed generation is more reliable than centralized generation. Because the OP did, and I'm proving him wrong. How do you know they will?  Can I see your peer-reviewed and published analysis ...
  • That's all coal plants together, not this single one. Did you read that wind is producing about 1.5x more than Hazelwood? The finer details?  Read your OP.  Your entire diatriabe is based on a ...
  • Modern wind turbines have a 99% availability, and it's almost impossible to take out a whole plant at one time the way it is with coal and nuclear. No, you do it incrementally.  As new stuff comes ...
  • Coal, gas and oil all have permanent subsidies written into the tax code. No, all that is stuff you made up. Wind has a short-term subsidy because the competition has a long-term subsidy.  It helps ...
  • They don't, because they don't need to, and they'd be caught anyway.  The scientific method of review and repeat assures that.
  • I understood perfectly. It's both false and irrelevant even if it were true. Yes...the same as the comparison in the OP, and the one you quoted above. How about this: Just because the industry is ...
  • To you, perhaps. You're making it sound like every picture is of that style (emotional - poverty and death). There are other types of pictures. For some types of photos, the technical merit is crucial.
  • Digital images can last "forever" without degradation.  Given that, you don't know what viewing medium they'll be viewed on during their "forever" lifetimes. That's why you should try to get as ...
