It's interesting how seemingly unpopular solar seems to be.
Someone has been smart enough to build these magical purple panels that turn sunlight into energy, and it seems like that's as far as its got.
Maybe it needs one intelligent country to attract and commission major solar researchers, because they will reap the benefits ($$$).
I'm not having a swipe at America, but because of you oil-slave status, it probably won't be you.
