As of 2014 if you took every solar panel on earth, sent it over to Japan it would only provide 20% of their power, while the sun is up.
We could easily wind and solar power everything, as soon as everyone cuts their current power consumption by 80 to 90%, even after buying an electronic vehicle. That means take your current power consumption, add an electric vehicle and still cut it down to 10% of what it was before getting an electric vehicle. But wait theirs more, you have to use all most all your power while the sun is up.
My only conclusion is these green worshippers don't comprehend numbers.
As if wishing for it hard enough will miracle the impossible into reality.
