It is high time for a serious discussion on the total environmental footprint of anything. I know this is going to get ugly as there will be lots of opinions and they need reconciliation which is a witch’s brew but I would rather have it than letting the renewable folks off the leash permanently. They should be forced to own the destruction they cause and they should face the public opprobrium they usually met out to others. The jug is up.
Policymakers have made a "green" energy shift a priority in economic recovery, but these visions ignore the dirty process of switching to "green" energy.
