Again, just what I've heard but I hear that Solar and Wind Power can't replace coal and natural gas. It's too expensive and we'd need miles and miles of windmills and/or Solar Panels to adequately replace natural gas and coal.
While I won't delve into the argument of whether or not it can 100% replace fossil fuels (I don't believe it can either, just to stop someone snapping), it's this line of thought that will leave us completely reliant on a non-renewable energy source, sitting on our ***** doing nothing while the world falls apart.
No energy source is perfect. If we don't take the time and invest the money to better the infrastructure used in these sorts of energy sources, we will forever be sitting here critiquing them rather than utilizing them.
