Solar energy will meet the world's energy needs — when we do something about it. Everyone would want clean energy over dirty and dangerous energy. "And this would be sound thinking." I, too, have children and great-grandchildren — 10 of them at last count.
You know, Ed Walters, some of us do the walk and others just talk. I've been researching the sun for 40 years. I had the first solar company in California — Lodi Solar Co. in 1974 — and am still at it today.
Ed, don't blame the government or Obama for Solyndra. Blame the people who stole the money. For me, it was a black eye for solar. And the solar plants that are being built today are a joke. We can do a lot better.
I would drive an electric car if I could afford one. "But" research costs money. And, Ed, it's not difficult to store solar and use it at 2 a.m. I can see you don't know anything about solar energy. It's OK, Ed, you're in a long line of people.
