This left the German fossil fuel and the intermittent (wind + solar) portion of power generation. In this period, wind and solar rose from 68 to 116 billion kwh, yet this rise of 48 billion kwh had no effect on the use of fossil fuels to generate power in Germany. During the period of 2011 to 2016, consumption fell by 10 billion kwh.

However, wind and solar energy are intermittent sources that currently need back up power from reliable energy sources like coal, nuclear, and natural gas to keep the lights on, keep our homes heated, and keep our factories running. The truth is, the physics of wind and solar energy render 100 percent renewable energy nothing more than a myth.

People have been farming for hundreds of years. Traditionally, a farmer's job has been producing fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds and herbs for human consumption – providing for the human energy supply, if you will. In the new-energy economy, farmland will continue to provide energy sources for humans, but not just for their bodies.
