[quote:samanthasunflower:MV8yMDc0MzA1XzM0OTM5NjM1XzMxOTY1Qzgx] This is for the Germany solartards. http://www.spiegel.de/international/germany/solar-subsidy-sinkhole-re-evaluating-germany-s-blind-faith-in-the-sun-a-809439.html The costs of subsidizing solar electricity have exceeded the 100-billion-euro mark in Germany, but poor results are jeopardizing the country's transition to renewable energy. The government is struggling to come up with a new concept to promote the inefficient technology in the future. Info The Baedeker travel guide is now available in an environmentally-friendly version. The 200-page book, entitled "Germany - Discover Renewable Energy," lists the sights of the solar age: the solar café in Kirchzarten, the solar golf course in Bad Saulgau, the light tower in Solingen and the "Alster Sun" in Hamburg, possibly the largest solar boat in the world. ANZEIGE [u]The only thing that's missing at the moment is sunshine. For weeks now, the 1.1 million solar power systems in Germany have generated almost no electricity. The days are short, the weather is bad and the sky is overcast.[/u] [b]As is so often the case in winter, all solar panels more or less stopped generating electricity at the same time. To avert power shortages, Germany currently has to import large amounts of electricity generated at nuclear power plants in France and the Czech Republic. To offset the temporary loss of solar power, grid operator Tennet resorted to an emergency backup plan, powering up an old oil-fired plant in the Austrian city of Graz.[/b] Solar energy has gone from being the great white hope, to an impediment, to a reliable energy supply. Solar farm operators and homeowners with solar panels on their roofs collected more than €8 billion ($10.2 billion) in subsidies in 2011, but the electricity they generated made up only about 3 percent of the total power supply, and that at unpredictable times. The distribution networks are not designed to allow tens of thousands of solar panel owners to switch at will between drawing electricity from the grid and feeding power into it. B[b]ecause there are almost no storage options, the excess energy has to be destroyed at substantial cost. German consumers already complain about having to pay the second-highest electricity prices in Europe.[/b] [/quote]
If SHTF and there is no power/fuel or no one to maintain currently active nuclear power plants (and there are hundreds of them spread across the US, specially along the east coast) most of them would go into meltdown fairly quickly. No one EVER mentions this in ANY of their doom to be scenarios. I specially love how it is a non issue in stupid shows like Revolution or even Jericho if I remember correctly. It does not matter how sheltered, fed or hydrated you are if you have dozens of nuclear power plants melting down all around you, so if you are ignorant enough to be wishing for any doom/collapse than I guess I have nothing else to say you except that I hope you enjoy the nuclear cluster fuck any scenario would bring. So I plead that you do not fall victim to the "doom programming" and realize the best thing is to help transform the world, not simply let it go to shit, that is a non-choice.
