As much as I despise the usual business at the Bush white House, I'm not an irrational W-hater who refuses to give credit when it's due (though it happens very rarely).

Anyway, the White House has approved funding (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070308/ap_on_hi_te/flexible_solar_cells_1) for Konarka Technologies (http://www.konarka.com/), a company focused on mobile and portable solar power solutions. They envision placing their broad spectrum solar cells in a wide range of devices. Can't wait to start seeing them in tablets.

  1. What sort of future does solar have, anyway?

  2. Solar is the future. The sun is literally the engine of the solar system. All the energy in the planet is a speck of dust compared to the mountain of power the sun releases daily. Eventually, we will get most of our power from it, and the sooner we get serious about that goal, the better.

  3. movpttSumocat hit it on the nail! If negative-thinking people controlled research, experimentation and development last century we'd still hear people saying "Man was never met to fly - it can't be done". Alexander Graham Bell offered to sell Western Union (a telegraph company back then) the patent to the telehphone but the Western Union president juat laughed at the idea saying the telephone was just a toy and had no serious future.

    I have learned to disassociate myself from negative thinkers and nay-sayers when it comes to freeing this world from the grips of the oil industry. And if you look at the source of the negative comments it is usually someone that benefits from fossil fuels and/or nuclear energy - or they are just ignorant of technology.
