  •  that's a very fair point (3+ / 0-)

    and I'm not  really saying that just because it could be a bomb that we shouldn't use it. I'm just pointing out that there are dangers and they definitely scale with size. Catastrophic battery failure in a laptop battery is bad, catastrophic battery  failure in a battery bank large enough to hold charge for a solar/wind farm is far far worse.

    I'm not against alternative energy (in point of fact I think we need to cut the military budget and take that savings directly into 50/50 infrastructure and renewable production) but we do need to have a serious conversation about storage if renewables are going to to move beyond 20%. That includes being honest about the pros and cons.

    That's all.
