Would this diminish the energy of wind and sun inland? Could it "use up" the wind and sun energy if we used enough panels and windmills and therefore leave less for everything else?
What I'm trying to get at is, at any particular moment in time is the energy of the wind and sun finite? Or could we harness the complete maximum power of each but still leave enough to perform all of the natural functions like carrying seeds, photosynthesis etc? Would it be impossible to "divert" enough of each to make a difference to everyday life?
