UK electric car charging stations will outnumber petrol stations by 2020. The oil car age is coming to an end. :)

See why (eco+public health+etc reasons) i installed solar panels equivalent to planting 322 treeshttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/FHtw2ri5Dq8 and why i drive an electric car equivalent to planting 382 trees (if the oil car would be refilled weekly) ► https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/TQboBAji7uo.
If your panels produce more electricity than you use, you get free charging for your car too, like me. :)

Quantum computers promise speedy solutions to some difficult problems, but building large-scale, general-purpose quantum devices is a problem fraught with technical challenges.

Chernobyl is to become the world's largest solar power plant, 4 GW, more than the total solar capacity of 95% of world's nations

This huge area will finally produce energy -- 30 years after the meltdown.

Melting ice sheet could release frozen Cold War-era waste - Camp Century, a U.S. military base built within the Greenland Ice Sheet in 1959, doubled as a top-secret site for testing the feasibility of deploying nuclear missiles from the Arctic during the Cold War. When the camp was decommissioned in 1967, its infrastructure and waste were abandoned under the assumption they would be entombed forever by perpetual snowfall.

Scientists are baffled at this seemingly altruistic behavior, which seems to be a concerted global effort to foil killer whale hunts.

A few points to take from this:
1. The delivery of electricity in Australia costs about 18c/kWh and that's before the cost of actually producing the electricity is taken into account.
2. The electricity companies are hurting.
3. This death spiral for the electrical companies is only going to get worse. As more people disconnect from the grid, the transmission costs for those still on the grid are only going to go up.
