Just remember, when next Monday rolls around, next week will be only seven days away.
Can't be done.
No amount of manana is going to change that.
Has something to do with melting wires and how melted wires don't conduct electricity when they're on the ground.
I mean, there's a reason this discussion is happening, right? You believe it's possible, against the facts of reality, to provide 100% if the US power needs with the shiny smiley guy in the sky, don't you?

Knowlege of what's impossible is what enables engineers to focus on the possible. There's a reason I don't build concrete airplanes with rubberband propellers, and use good old-fashioned graphite composites to carry wing loadings induced by titanium bladed turbofans on the airplanes I work on.
Want to power up the nation without burning chemicals?
Then you have to burn uranium, thorium, and plutonium, instead, until such time as it becomes possible to burn hydrogen and helium and lithium in fusion chambers.
Will the Messiah's ignorant ban on off-shore drilling be lifted? Will the nation be able to access it's coal and oil and shale deposits as needed, or will treasonous politics in Washington still keep us bent over the "barrel" for socialist and terrorst nations? And how many gigawatts will brand new nuclear reactors be providing the nation's electric grids in a decade? How many foundations for new reactors will be laid by then?
Why waste the money when we could be mining uranium today?
But, because we shouldn't allow ourselves to become enthralled to socialist and terrorist nations, we should do everything we can to make sure that we take advantage of every useful energy resource this nation offers.
Tha means coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear, and in a limited fashion, solar, tidal, wave, and wind as fringe components of proportionately small worth.
