  1. So the story is solar reduced emissions 75% of the time versus conventional natural gas power plant? Did I get that right? A big win for solar. Huge reduction. Good news! Obviously we’re early in the process and that is an impressive start. We haven’t yet developed power plants that can run 100% solar so the remaining 25% of the time it still emitted carbon dioxide. Kind of like a prius. Runs free most of the time and then every so often the dirty gasoline kicks in, for a huge improvement overall.

  2. More confabulations? Yup, you betcha. Don’t forget that the money that is used to provide financial subsidies for the various “renewables” is being produced by economic endeavors that are powered by mostly fossil fuels. There is a limit to a narrative that is being made up as it is being told even if the confabulating narrator is not technically a liar because they believe their own “brainstormed” confabulations.
