    100% Renewable Energy Economy IS Possible

    Addressing the skeptics of the claim that it is not only possible but quite affordable to develop an economy based on 100% renewable energy sources:

    You mean like ethanol that does nothing. There is not enough land to grow food and support renewable energy. For instance one wind turbine uses one quarter acre of land

    They're not talking about ethanol. And I have NO idea where you get your figure of one quarter acre of land per wind turbine. And we can site wind turbines OFF-SHORE in coastal areas. Shrug.

    Problem is they are already using many acres of farm land

    Yet we are stuck with ethanol that does nothing to help. That is why I use ethanol free gas.

    Yeah. I'm AGAINST the whole ethanol program. It's STUPID. And that is NOT what the linked article is about, anyhow. So you are just trying to divert the thread.
