Power is hard to get

2011-07-18 12:59

Someone on Usenet made a partial list of reasons that various power technologies were unsuitable. I have cleaned it up.

Nukes make waste;
Hydro kills frogs;
Geo’s expensive;
And solar hates fogs.
Wind’s unreliable;
Fire’s bad;
Coal smells awful;
Might as well use only pre-agricultural technology.

I’d apologize to Dorothy Parker, but why?

  1. She’d have loved it.

    And the fact that someone your age remembers her.
