How surprising that a report written by a renewable energy company found out that renewable energy is best energy.

This is not a problem exclusive to women.
As a man you can also get your life disrupted by death threats, unordered pizzas/taxis/products and doxxing.

It's probably easier to get singled out for it as a women, but if you are subject to it as a man you'll get much less support to cope with it. This is reflected in the offline world too as a MUCH higher suicide rate for men compared to women. Trying to construct this as some purely misgyonistic issue is just reinforcing the gender bias of men as some disposable soldier caste and is likely to aggrevate misgyonistic tendencies overall in society.

If you insist that this is just about females then you're a proponent for gender privlege and not equality.

Investing in intermittent power sources further cuts into their profit and viability. They can't really run their solar panels at night to compensate for all the other ones dumping energy at day.

This is of course true for everoyne else too, which means off-peak energy will grow more expensive or run at loss eventually.

Large scale grid storage doesn't exist in a cheap and efficient manner. That's one of the core problems with wind and solar. It's great for shaving off peak demand but after a certain point it will be investments into useless overcapacity(it's also a great way to make renewables competitive with grid prices though as grid inefficiency costs are offloaded to end users)

Mass hype was harder back then.

Now you just create a facebook page, fill it will fact-stripped alarmist language with several "Last call! we're all going to burn in this life if nothing is done! Like and share" and get big enviro pick it up and you'll have it disseminated globally soon enough, with several hundreds or thousands of environmentally minded people jetting in form all over the place to participate in your political-religious activist parade.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing for money.
