Resistance to wind and solar development has been quietly and steadily
growing. The number of suitable sites, i.e., where there is nobody
around to object, are next to zero. Then you have the ungodly amount of
transmission lines needed to connect them all up. It's a really
terrible use of land.
Support for nuclear is on the rise though. One big reason is because you
can generate *reliable* power on 1/500th the amount of land.
* U.S. cities and states have risen up against the spread of solar
panels and wind turbines.
* One expert says at least 225 government entities across the U.S. have
put up barriers to renewable energy development.
* Those supporting renewables rely on the “vacant-land myth” to push
their green agenda, the expert said.
