  1. The downside, as some poster noted, are not addressed. Like how wind farms aren’t kind to flying creatures.

    One thing I’d like to know is how are these green technologies green to begin with? I’m talking about the materials used to build the storage cells, light weight materials, transportation, etc. (lithium, NiCad, plastics, wiring, etc.)

    I think this article does a disservice painting everything cheery green without addressing the downsides and what’s being done to improve them.

  2. True – there is a cost to everything. On balance, green technologies are far kinder to creatures than the mining and burning of fossil fuels, but it is important to be transparent about this, you are right.
