    Okay.

    Now.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Sure, thanks to horizontal drilling.

    So, with horizontal drilling, there are absolutely no problems? Do you think people will have to vacate their homes?

    Oh absolutely that is what they want....These are the same people that just ate up theories like "The population bomb" by Paul R. Ehrlich in the late 60's, and have been buying into every crack pot theory since as a way to "nudge" the people toward a Marxist Utopia.

    If you're looking for energy source with absolutely no consequences, you're going to be waiting for a long time. In the dark. Because you won't have any power.

    Do you think people will have to vacate their homes?

    No?

    Last I checked, solar power does not cause earthquakes, destroy the land, pump chemicals into the soil, contaminate drinking water, drain rivers, kill wildlife and force people to evacuate their homes.




    No?
    You need to beef up your knowledge on what has been happening already.

    Who said anything about private sector money?

    Nah, that would be totally wrong....Today wind, and solar make up less than 1% I think of energy use in the US, and the unreliability of these tech's doesn't bode well for the replacement of anything other than turbine free landscapes. Consider an article in the LA Times last December....

    The Delta Energy Center, a power plant about an hour outside San Francisco, was roaring at nearly full bore one day last month, its four gas and steam turbines churning out 880 megawatts of electricity to the California grid.

    On the horizon, across an industrial shipping channel on the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, scores of wind turbines stood dead still. The air was too calm to turn their blades — or many others across the state that day. Wind provided just 33 megawatts of power statewide in the midafternoon, less than 1% of the potential from wind farms capable of producing 4,000 megawatts of electricity.

    As is true on many days in California when multibillion-dollar investments in wind and solar energy plants are thwarted by the weather, the void was filled by gas-fired plants like the Delta Energy Center.

    One of the hidden costs of solar and wind power — and a problem the state is not yet prepared to meet — is that wind and solar energy must be backed up by other sources, typically gas-fired generators. As more solar and wind energy generators come online, fulfilling a legal mandate to produce one-third of California's electricity by 2020, the demand will rise for more backup power from fossil fuel plants.

    "The public hears solar is free, wind is free," said Mitchell Weinberg, director of strategic development for Calpine Corp., which owns Delta Energy Center. "But it is a lot more complicated than that."

    Wind and solar energy are called intermittent sources, because the power they produce can suddenly disappear when a cloud bank moves across the Mojave Desert or wind stops blowing through the Tehachapi Mountains. In just half an hour, a thousand megawatts of electricity — the output of a nuclear reactor — can disappear and threaten stability of the grid.

    To avoid that calamity, fossil fuel plants have to be ready to generate electricity in mere seconds. That requires turbines to be hot and spinning, but not producing much electricity until complex data networks detect a sudden drop in the output of renewables. Then, computerized switches are thrown and the turbines roar to life, delivering power just in time to avoid potential blackouts.

    Renewable energy increase will require use of more fossil fuels - Los Angeles Times
    Doesn't sound reliable to me....
