A BIG problem with renewable energy is we can't count on it. I want lights and heat / cooling available any time but the wind blows when it blows and clouds cover solar cells which BTW do not produce anywhere NEAR what I sometimes need. The solar cells need to be kept clean to stay efficient. That water over Niagara or Hoover dam is much more reliable.
As far a listening to POTUS, Levin is right - it's torture. I can't take it.
