Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think that this both an excellent and problemmatic discussion.

  • Wind never provide a majority of electricity ... if storage issues are 'solved', that changes as a potential.  Also, if there is a real, high-quality, national grid, can balance wind across large geographic areas. But, the more important point is that we should have diversified sources -- there is no Silver Bullet solution, just lots of Silver BBs.

  • Wind at 1% of US electricity: Absolutely. But it is growing by 25+% a year, at an accelerating rate (not in percentage, but in total installed). If we can maintain that momentum, it is in the 15-20% range by 2020 ...

And, so on ...
