Is solar energy a meme?
Is it worth research and development?

I believe photovoltaics are not sustainable and that solar energy needs to be used for its thermal to energy use (molten salt/Stirling Engine/etc).

There are too many ways it can be used to accurately answer that. If you are talking about PV cells then yes, but they have their place.

Shit like covering your house roof with PV solar panels is not really economical in many ways and that normally includes a subsidy from the government.

Solar power plants like this, are a far better use of time and resources.

It's overrated as a viable energy source by now. Yet it's realistically the best energy source in the future.

It has potential, but the same activists for solar panels are usually also crazy leftists against nuclear and hydroelectric power

I never understood that. Especially now that technology for those really low head, vertical, vortex, turbine hydroelectric generators exist.

You can literally put these things just about anywhere there is a steady flow of water. It just needs to be developed properly to lower the costs. The only problem is that I can't seem to find anything other than the inventor's generator.

Yes, poor production, poor efficiency, not actual solar energy, it only triggers a chem reaction a.k.a. a batery that works under the sun, it only works during the day, slow as fuck production.
>Is it worth research and development?
Hardly

Then why don't we just use solar energy and UPS supplies?

Having electricity shipped to you in a box is only a short-term solution. Anyway, they always try and deliver it when you're out.

The biggest problem seems that this stuff is outside the USA and youtube wants to recommend a bunch of unrelated stuff about free energy kook shit .

I believe this is true to a certain extent. Environmentalists want industry, living standards, and the human population scaled back. Oligarchs don't want to be outgrown. Big government types want more excuses to poke into everyone's business.

The cost-inefficiency of solar power was a major selling point to all of them.

But boy are they in for a surprise! Solar's a highly improvable technology, and there's no plausible justification for forbidding people to put up panels of their own. There's going to be a huge expansion of industry and energy consumption as a result.

Global warming is just a conspiracy by Big Pump to get people to buy a lot of unnecessary flood control equipment.

1) World sea levels have been generally rising since the end of the last ice age (yes, I mean the same thing as what's called a "glacial period" in the technical literature, and fuck you if you think that means it's a necessary correction).
2) Temperatures go up and down on their own.
3) Improved drainage, anti-flood civic engineering, and depletion of groundwater has been moving water and sediment from above sea level into the oceans, raising them as surely as glacial melting does.
4) Land moves up and down relative to the sea level.
5) Government schemes to subsidize insurance have encouraged building in flood regions.
6) Development near coasts has also stripped forests and wetlands that previously absorbed the force of hurricanes and prevented them from blowing water up into coastal cities.

No matter whether you believe in alarmist models that predict strong positive feedbacks, or you believe in the observed effects that show as many negative feedbacks as positive ones and very limited warming potential from CO2, stopping greenhouse gas emissions wouldn't be a cure-all for preventing flooding.

No. It's not an improvement. I still say "tidal wave", I don't use "kibibyte", I still call Pluto a planet. I'm not going to take the path of least resistance against aggressive minorities changing established words just to have an excuse to correct people and thereby pose as having superior knowledge.

I don't give the whole spiel every time I use "ice age" this way, just when I suspect I'm going to be jumped on by some human garbage if I don't.
