Renewable Myths

From a CleanTechnica reader/advisor and myself:

OK, gang, time for some community fun. How about we pitch in and list some of the most common anti–renewable energy myths and then work up good, comprehensive rebuttals to them?

Here’s how we’ll start out. Make each myth a new comment and then people can add information under that comment.

After a while we’ll take all the input and turn it into a new article (or more) so that we can fine tune it and then turn it into a resource page. Then, when poorly informed people turn up and want to run through the standard “friends of coal” / “friends of nuclear” talking points, we can send them to that page. 😀

Some starter myths are below to get people rolling.
