Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
i agree with most of what he says, but also agree with the comment how he's missing an important point: that if the correct amount of support had been given to alt energy and conservation, pv could be made more efficient and yield a higher ROI.

he make a lot of sense with the rest though.

Imagine a world where a trillion dollars had been spent on sustainable R&D instead of on killing people.

It's not as if PV etc are the only options. I'm sure there are more eccentric schemes - algae farming already looks promising - that have potential but need to be developed.

But no. Let's have a war instead. That's a much better idea.
