Wind and Solar Energy the Answer?

While Germany, leader in wind and solar energy has spent billions of dollars subsidizing solar panels, their coal use has not decreased, in fact it has increased. In the meantime Solar and Wind only generate 10% of their total energy. Switching between solar, wind, and coal to maintain a steady flow of energy is also costly. Average german electricity bills are 3 times higher than in the US.

Is "green" energy, particularly wind and solar energy, the solution to our climate and energy problems? Or should we be relying on things like natural gas, nuclear energy, and even coal for our energy needs and environmental obligations? Alex Epstein of the Center for Industrial Progress explains.
