55 minutes describing how bitcoin mining as a flexible load option can solve intermitancy and congestion problems inherant in renewable energy.

TLDR People use a ton of energy when they get ready for work and when they come home from work putting a huge load on the grid for about 3 hours. Bitcoin miners can shut off for those 3 hours. The consumption of electricity for those 21 houra of down time makes renewables profitable.

Still TLDR

Bitcoin mining is good for the environment and the people saying its not are fucking retarded.
