Mr. Nasheed from the Maldives is a peripatetic leech, always with his hand out. I heard him speak two decades ago. He said the Maldives would have disappeared by now. [checking map] Nope, it's still there, and not any smaller.

Wind and solar energy was never meant to power modern, industrial, high income and high growth economies.

No matter how cheap wind and solar power gets, it will never go mainstream as long as there is an equally effective energy storage and transmission solution to go along with it.
