Expect more volcano forced global cooling.

Erupting Mount Kelud is giving the "Pompei Treatment" to the people in
Indonesia right now.

Red hot ash, gravel, and rocks have been raining down up to 9 miles from
the volcano continuously since the eruption began.
This is a bad one.

Some 200,000 people in a 10-kilometre (six-mile) radius from the volcano
were ordered to evacuate, according to national disaster officials,
though many tried to return to their homes to gather clothing and
valuables -- only to be forced back by a continuous downpour of volcanic
materials.

Beautiful technology...many dead birds.

"We're trying to figure out how big the problem is and what we can do to minimize bird mortalities," said Eric Davis, assistant regional director for migratory birds at the federal agency's Sacramento office. "When you have new technologies, you don't know what the impacts are going to be."

Typical GREEN energy project. 1000 degrees around the panels,, frying birds in flight. BRILLIANT...Wonder what effect a million of those power plants would have on AGW??

Ron, it's funny that you're not nearly so critical of the environmental impacts of fossil fuel plants and fossil fuel extraction.

DIrt,, LOOK at that plant and tell me thats better than current.. Tell me those are BETTER for the globe than COAL..

For those to be a viable replacement, 1/2 of america would be covered in them.. 1/2 of America would have surface temps of 1000 degrees or more. 1/2 of america would be off limits too. Sorry but i look at those travesties of green projects and can ONLY feel ill.

We do need something,, BUT THOSE AREN'T IT!

Very cool!

The World's Largest Solar Plant Started Creating Electricity Today

There's no accounting for taste, but I think the solar plant looks great--sci-fi come to life.
I'd rather have my tax money spent on things like the solar plant which may potentially be useful than on "models" or ethnographic studies of (alleged) climate change or other BS.
Figuring out how not to fry too many birds could be a challenge, sure, or maybe the fried ones could be harvested and used as food, I don't know.

1000 degrees or more around those solar plants. Build another ten million of those plants and see what happens with agw..?


We replaced one blight with a bigger blight is all i see.

Ron I actually have some misgivings about developing deserts to produce energy. I just think your selective outrage is funny.

I second Blahblah's above post.

I also once again congratulate the professor on that one small step at Livermore. Maybe with the army of scientists, engineers, and technicians the CAGW funding stream could buy we could have realistic, non polluting, non blighting replacement power soon.

Dirt,,LA has an approx population of 3,800,000. It would take about 28 of those plants using 5 sq miles or more of space each to power JUST LA. Hudreds of sq miles covered in panels producing oven like temperatures into the atmosphere,, and these were created to thwart globull warming? Utter and total non-sense..
