If you take the stupid climate change argument out of it then renewables certainly have a niche to fill in society.

Hell my boat is almost completely run by solar power.

It is certainly one area I think needs more investment because I don't think we've found or have the technology yet, to create the thing that will replace fossil fuels.

But yeah, I would go with nuclear right now.

Weirdo
True renewable energy that benefits all would be DIY energy. IE; something anyone can do on their own or with a kit of sorts.

Relying on it to be sold to us is a huge barrier.

We all know the real problem, Democrats putting too many regulations on good and benevolent Corporations, everyone knows that corporations are in business for the good of the people, everyone. Thank god for Donald Trump, the savior of the country. He will never let evil Democrats put nasty regulations on corporations and billionaires.

Yup, Americans, 5 percent of the world's population, consume only about 25 percent of the world's energy production.

Under MAGA, maybe we can up that to 35, maybe 40 percent.
