Fox News: Solar Industry Isn't Feasible Because America Isn't Sunny Enough
02/12/13, 15:50

Harriet, if you read what I wrote carefully, I never said that solar was a "perfect system." I understand your pain regarding the price of going off the grid. Within 10 years, I said, it's going to be a different situation. I don't see how getting $5,000 to install a few lower-efficiency solar panels to offset the costs of your consumption is a bad thing. Do you live somewhere without a lot of sunlight? Your argument appears to be that you can't afford it, that wherever you live does not subsidize it enough, and therefore it is irrational to be joyously pro-solar: Over COAL, not nuclear, that's what we were talking about.

Since I'm something of a Keynesian, I think you should get more money from the government to buy solar. That's my opinion, and the opinion of many economists. FDR expanded the rural poor South's energy grid by leaps and bounds. He is attacked for this, but the fact is that in so doing he transformed the lives of millions of people for the better. At what cost? Who cares. There was no market incentive to give hot water and electricity to penniless Okies, but how thankless they all are that they got it.

And it is not silly to apply Moore's Law to PVC technology.

Then again, solar is already beating coal in the business, non residential market:

http://solarpowerauthority.com/first-solar/

"Management is focused on achieving its 2014 sustainability targets: Mass producing thin-film CdTe PV cells with an energy conversion efficiency of 13.5-14.5%, and driving the cost-per-watt of its thin-film modules down by 16-30% to $0.52-$0.63. In 2Q of 2011, one of its thin-film solar PV cells set a world record at the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) by converting 17.3% of incident sunlight into electricity.

Having broken the $1/Watt module-manufacturing cost barrier in 2008, First Solar’s average cost-per-watt for manufacturing thin-film CdTe modules continues to decline. Module manufacturing costs dropped to $0.75 as of mid-2011, which is more than 1/3 less than the cost of “best-of-breed” crystalline silicon solar PV modules, according to industry researchers. Working to achieve an overall “balance of systems” cost of $0.98/W by 2014, First Solar came in at $0.99/W in 2Q of 2011."

Harriet: I don't think anybody is saying that you can take PVP's with 12% efficiency and go off the grid, not with thousands of watts of energy use a month for the average home. But in much of Africa, where all they need to do is power a few lightbulbs and charge a cellphone, a single $70 Chinese panel changes lives.

You can, however, do a lot with $5,000 of free money in the USA. If a 5kW system costs around $25,000-$35,000, then you're getting a rebate that pays for 15-25% of your energy. This is with a conservative 12% efficiency, which is already pretty low. Ten years ago I remember 6% being the cheap standard.

Assuming Moore's Law continues to apply to solar panels as it has been, it won't be long. With 40% efficiency recently announced in the lab, it's just stupid to not assume that these things will not be everywhere in 10 years. I live in a rented apartment and always have, so I can't put solar panels on my roof in any case.

I think it's pretty ridiculous to ignore what is happening with solar energy right now. Yes, it's true that Germany may have jumped the gun when they bootstrapped their solar industry, but it's not the end of the world, and in the process they've learned a whole lot about solar energy infrastructure.

Solar power is revolutionizing the African economy. When all you need is a little bit of power, free from the reigns of centralized government and corporate control, you can't beat solar.

Sure, it's still really cheap in Germany to tear town dozens of ancient downs in order to get at that extremely cheap and highly polluting lignite, but then you kind of have to ask "What is the actual cost of coal, I mean, after you tear it out of the ground, burn it, and dispose of the slag?" That challenge, Gmol, is about as divisive as the one you mentioned about making solar practical on a mass scale.

Also, who cares if solar is "economical?" The concept is so abstract when the benefits of energy independence and the economic ruin of environmental catastrophe are put into the equation. If the state you live in gives you a $5,000 tax rebate to put paneling on your roof, is that not "economical?"

The cost per kilowatt for solar is now competitive with coal, in any case. To downplay the exponential growth of the PV industry is just silly.

In fairness, it's a confinement soup meant for women who have just had babies. Makes more sense under that light. I doubt I'll ever scramble out to make this again, but since I'm coming down with a cold it's been just what I need.

I ate Filipino "balut" while over there, the national snack of that country, and I can only imagine that it's just as awful as pidan.

I had big time reservations about eating pig feet, which I'd never eaten before. After the marrow, fat, gelatin and meat comes off the bone, it's actually pretty damn good. After braising "inferior cuts" of meat into mind blowingly delicious meals I've been more open about trying all the offal and neglected bits. This is just one of those weird foods that I am glad that I tried.

I couldn't find Chian-King black vinegar, which is what all the recipes say to use. I used a mix of balsamic and rice vinegar and water, which apparently has a similar taste and texture.

I can't really explain how this tastes, except that you feel high afterwards and you want to keep eating it.

Capitalism is doing an okay job dealing with the situation. We just need a little regulation and some serious juggling of agricultural subsidies, then we'll be fine.

Google The Urban Farming Guys, watch some of their videos, and imagine if that was happening intensively in every post-industrial neighborhood in America.

A friend of mine in high school was related to one of the core founders of the Theosophical Society, and everyone in his family was a member. His grandmother wrote a book about reading auras, and she was also German... I don't know if she saw the dirty Jew pink haze that tends to radiate around me or not, or if this effected her overall opinion of me.

Anyway, he worked at the TS's book shop, located in their library on Broadway, in Seattle. If you're ever in the area, check it out. It has the complete works of Blavatsky, and thousands of other works of mysticism, some mainstream (Gnostic Jungianism, Freud, The Bible), and some very, very bizarre and obscure. As I recall there were dozens of dense tomes, all written by Blavatsky. I don't think it's fair to pigeon-hole her into proto-Nazi philosophy, since she wrote extensively about religion and philosophy from many different cultures, the Cabalistic tradition being one of them.

"The Society is a philanthropic and scientific body for the propagation of the idea of brotherhood on practical instead of theoretical lines. The Fellows may be Christians or Mussulmen, Jews or Parsees, Buddhists or Brahmins, Spiritualists or Materialists, it does not matter; but every member must be either a philanthropist, or a scholar, a searcher into Aryan and other old literature, or a psychic student. In short, he has to help, if he can, in the carrying out of at least one of the objects of the programme." - Blavatsky. This is quite a difference from your Cult of Thule.

He lectured us on the dangers of smoking and drinking and drinking soda... That's pretty easy to do. The bullshit came from his yogic posture and the spiritual dazzling music, which is to somehow inform us that his words are holier than, say, a PSA from the health department. Read a bit about him; he's an embezzling, labor law violating, gay hating, bigoted fraud.
