Re: [APD] solar tanks - Barr

i read an article in National geographic recently that stated solar 
power with todays technology would require panels on, I forget the 
percentages but think it was 30%... Suffice it to say if we put solar 
panels on most of the buildings in metropolitan areas, the energy 
produced would equal that from our coal usage and that accounts for the 
fact that solar does not always produce.

Now, solar is renewable, emits no GHGs and i belive the panels last 
along time.

I also read recently that a new technology for solar panels is almost 
ready.  This new technology produces the same amount of energy in 10% of 
the space and at a lower production cost.  Plus, rumor has it a new 
technology is on the way with sprayable photocells!

Course I could have read those articles wrong.

If we would start spending our money and resources on alternative enery 
  solutions rather than mucked up elections, wars, oil and all the other 
crap we waste on the new technologies to end or drastically reduce our 
dependancy on fossil fuels we would already have the technologies.

Just me 2 cents!  I'll go back to lurking now.
