16. Do you want to go down the road we did with wind

where you keep shifting your sources to accomodate bad data?

Even at 100% efficiency, solar doesn't provide enough energy. 116 watts/per meter. Squared. A pittance. Enough to run 1-1/2 light bulbs for every square meter of expensive, hi-tech solar panel. No place to store it. No power at all at night, or when it's cloudy.

Solar costs one-third more per kWh than nuclear, which is available all the time. That's why solar makes up less than 1% of U.S. energy.

You're dreaming. Wake up.
