    They don't "wear out".

    But yes . . . whatever the "proposal" the reality will most often be "replace", and the timeline will be . . . "long" (except in areas where fracking has already produced a surplus of gas . . . in those locations turbines will be installed quickly, whether in conjunction with old plants or not).

    IOW, window dressing, with an effect on the immediate problem (that wouldn't happen anyway, for economic reasons) somewhere between "none' and "nil".  But there will be lots of praise for the "bold initiative on climate change", whether it makes any difference or not.  See comments in this diary praising a rumored "proposal" that hasn't even been seen, let alone implemented, for an example of that.

    Fake Left, Drive Right . . . not my idea of a Democrat . . .
