Yet Unum's information is interesting. It means that hydroelectricity
alone is no more enough to compensate for the hieratic wind production
and that more wind turbines will now imply more gas peakers.
Hydroelectricity is dependent upon water supply, and ever-increasing
drought cycles means hydro power can be unavailable for years.
Tee hee... your funny.

ONE drought (that's OVER, by the way) in California, and suddenly ALL the
hydroelectric dams aren't outputting electricity.

I take it back... you're not funny... you're sad.

Please... can you show us the "dried up" dams, that are no longer
providing electricity due to "drought"?

Every word you write about global warming is bullshit. You don't know a
fucking thing about the subject, and you don't know anyone who does.
What you know about are right-wingnut fake news sites that specialize in
fooling gullible fat fucks like you.

Fuck off.

The southern hemisphere has been COOLING!


https://www.sott.net/article/353204-Southern-Hemisphere-cooling-trend-is-now-apparent

David Archibald has today given the most up to date information on our
Sun entering a grand solar minimum and the State of the Sun, now with
the past 5 winters under our belts we can look for trends. I present to
you the trend of a cooling Southern Hemisphere.


Ya know, a planet has TWO hemispheres.

HTH, little man Ball.

ratboy thinks there's been ONE drought and it was just in California. OMFG
this is so hilarious!

The wind energy industry reached an important milestone in 2016 when it passed
the generating capacity of hydroelectric power for the first time to become
the nation’s top renewable generating source. Wind energy’s growth — at least
in the next few years — is showing few signs of slowing down, with 142,000
megawatts of new and proposed wind capacity lined up to connect to the
nation’s electric power grid, according to new data released by the Department
of Energy.

The total amount of wind capacity in the queue represents 34 percent of all
generating capacity waiting to connect to the grid, higher than all other
generating sources, DOE said. The wind energy industry added more than 8,200
megawatts of capacity in 2016, representing 27 percent of all energy capacity
additions for that year.

Whatsa matta, nerd... afraid of looking like a dick... too late.

Please... show us the "dried up" dams, that are no longer providing
electricity due to "drought"?

You can't... because you're a liar. I'll make it easier for you... show us
where the "other" droughts were, and point out the dams that stopped
putting out electricity.

So there hasn't been just "ONE drought", you sad little moron? Keep

Nobody said anything about "dried up", dumbass. All it takes is
a significant reduction in reservoir level.

replacing lost hydroelectric generation with fossil fuel-fired generation,
including large amounts of liquefied natural gas, and has taken steps to
provide backup generation for stadiums."

A *reduction* in reservoir level means the reservoir level is being
maintained.

Your "hydro power can be unavailable for years" due to drought is not
consistent with your later statement about a sustained *reduction* in
reservoir level.

Are you going to play the "word choice" game again? Are you going to
use Accident's word-parsing defense?

Or are you unable to express yourself clearly about the dangers of
anthropo**centric** (to use your "word choice") global warming?

Caliphonya!

Where they pump groundwater without ANY restrictions!

Brilliant, Gov. Moonbeam.

Sadly it is ephemeral, not constant, unable to be properly stored for
off-peak generating use.

Do you dumb fucks get that?
