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;
And solar hates fogs.
Coal smells awful;
Might as well use only pre-agricultural technology.
I’d apologize to Dorothy Parker, but why?

She’d have loved it.
And the fact that someone your age remembers her.
