What is it about people that they can't seem to get the concept that batteries don't make themselveso.

Economists have a useful measure of power sources, which calculates how much of a given power sources total life time energy production must be set aside to produce the next generation, and solar/wind/battery combination is insufficient to maintain a modern society.

It's quite staggering how backward libtards are, a simple calculation of the area of solar panels needed even at 100% efficiency gives a surface area of approx 1/5th of the current world's paved area, and this doesn't include the massive amount of batteries with their limited lifespan required.

It's all pie in the sky stuff.

Simply extrapolating from known figures. You can look up the raw numbers, energy consumption by nation, power generated per unit area by commercial solar panels, including bathtub curve for deterioration, and energy used in production. Etc etc. Simple common sense extrapolating that engineers and economists do all the time.

You can even take the battery out of your mobile phone, measure the volume,and note the capacity to estimate the gross volume of batteries needed to run the country on average consumption overnight in winter.

It's a cube roughly 170m on a side. In the real world you would have to spread this out considerably for heat dissipation and to reduce the potential fire risk (batteries do have a tendancy to short out ) so I'm guessing about 20km by 20 km site, not including roads for access and maintenance, including putting out those fires.

In case you've never encountered 'Mad' before, you won't get links, you won't get any data, you won't get anything scientifically verifiable. Just a little warning. He may use some great science vocabulary though!

You can look this up and work it out for yourselves. It's a sad thing about today's society, that they can't actually do a simple back of the envelope calculation, and have to rely on an article giving them unverified figures.

Although, on the Economist side Dr Richard Tol has done considerable work in this area. Look him up.
