Never say never….

Someone posted these quotes in response to a skeptic’s comment that solar, wind, and other renewable energy sources will never economically match petroleum, coal, or nuclear: 

 “Man will never reach the moon regardless of all future scientific advances. –Dr. Lee DeForest, “Father of Radio & Grandfather of Television.” 

 “The bomb will never go off. I speak as an expert in explosives.” –Admiral William Leahy, US Atomic Bomb Project 

 “There is no likelihood man can ever tap the power of the atom.” –Robert Millikan, Nobel Prize in Physics, 1923 

 “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” –Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943
