Spain produced 38% electricity from wind and solar in July 2014.:) ►    They keep expanding their wind-solar output every year.  Denmark produces now 30% electricity from wind each month.

MORE ABOUT SOLAR, Wind and Electric Cars:
1.3 million Earths fit into the Sun.  The Sun is huge.   The solar energy reaching the Earth is 5000 times the energy we use globally.  We reached 150 GW solar global PV demand this month.  Some countries increased their solar capacity 5000-16000 times in 22 years.

Solar ☼☼ energy can power the whole planet many times over thru solar windows, walls, roofs, roads, car paint, solar-electric cars-planes-ships-trains and battery storage.  This would eliminate arsenic, mercury, sulfur and other forms of pollution and increase life expectancy by many years. Here are some recent exciting solar power-electric car news:

1.  The Cost Of Solar Has Dropped 100 times Since 1977, Bringing Solar Power To Grid Parity in many areas.  More than half the present global solar PV capacity was installed in the last 3 years. 74% of new US electrical capacity came from solar in the first quarter of 2014  First Solar says solar module costs will halve over the next few years  The age of renewables has begun, according to Citigroup ►  Morgan Stanley says that we are nearing the tipping point for going off-grid with solar/wind/green power, battery storage and electric cars ►

2. Solar power sells now at 5c/kwh - cheaper than 7c for natural gas and 10 cents for coal in many places as shown by this latest SunEdison contract for 150MW ►

3.  January 2014 Nissan Leaf electric car sales went up 118% compared to 2013 in the US ►  In Norway Leaf sales doubled too.  The Nissan LEAF set a new monthly sales record in May  2014 in the US, at 3117, making it the clear leader, well ahead of the Tesla.

4.  A German state reached 120% electricity from renewables in 2013 and another state is about to reach 100% renewables energy in 2014  Japan launched $0.1 billion program to support battery storage for solar panels

5.  Nissan LEAF Was Best Selling Car In Norway Again In January The fleet of electric vehicles in Norway is the largest per capita in the world, with Oslo recognized as the EV capital of the world.  In 2013 the market penetration of the EV segment reached 4 plug-in electric vehicles per 1,000 people, nine times higher than the United States, the US being the country where half of world's electric cars are.

6.  California installed more solar power in 2013 than in all previous 30 years combined China plans to install 14 GW (more than the US total capacity now) of solar in 2014 ►  India almost doubled its solar capacity in 2013 :) China already installed in 2013 about 12 GW, more than the US installed before 2013 and in 2013 combined  Japanese solar capacity increased 350% in 2013 versus 2012 ►, and 20 GW of utility solar is approved

7.  US is in the process of installing 43 GW of solar - enough to power 6 million homes ►   In October 2013, 99% of new electric power capacity in US came from renewable sources  In November, 100% of new electric capacity in US came from renewables  50% electricity from wind in Iowa will be real soon due to $1 billion turbine December order ►

8.  Due to price drops you can invest 7k now and get 50k over 40 years. solar is the best one time investment you can make. is probably one of the cheapest ways anyone in USA can install solar panels. $2/watt plus install and $500 in permits etc. They are where little guys buy their panels at wholesale. They connect you with local installers who do it all if you don't like installs. It costs now only 13k to buy and install a 5kw system. Plus you get 30% back as tax credit. It costs 10k if you choose a local electrician, as they charge 2000 not 5000 as the professional dolar installers for installing it. 10k means 7k after tax credit. That means for 7k you can eliminate 50000 in electricity costs over next 40 years. To me this is a perfect deal. Utilities limit your system to 5kw or so depending on how much you use. If you go to solarcity or others you end up paying 50-80% more. Panels on the roof make your house easier to sell. You can google "cheapest solar installers in your country" and take a step towards saving money and the environment.

9.  In Scotland 100% renewable energy by 2025 is the goal ►  Tasmania has set a 100% renewable energy in 2020 goal ►  The Philippines also has a 100% renewable energy in 10 years target ►  In the first quarter of 2014, Italy generated 40% of its electricity from renewables   On June 16, 2013, renewables covered 100% Italian electricity demand for 2 hours

10.  On May 11th 2014, Germany produced 74% of energy from solar+renewables  In July 2014, Spain generated 38% of electricity from solar and wind ►

11.  In October 2013 France has made its natural gas fracking ban absolute, in a victory for supporters of solar ►  Fracking causes small earthquakes, poisons ground water and air and makes millions of people sick ► Fracking Loophole Linked To Pollution Of Drinking Water.  On December 19, France approved taxing fossil fuels to speed up solar deployment ►

12.  Sao Paulo, with a metropolitan area of 20 million people, has set 70% electricity from renewables by 2020 goal   China plans to reach 35 GW solar capacity by 2015  53% of China's new power capacity in the first 10 months of 2013 came from renewables

13.  Turkey's Feed in Tariff Program for solar greater than 1 MW led to applications totaling 9 GW ►   Coal India, world's largest coal company, believes the future is renewables and started installing solar panels at their facilities

14.  California town of Lancaster requires all new homes to come with installed solar panels  20% of new homes in California will come with solar panels and most new electricity installed in California will be solar next 6 months.  

For the benefits of installing solar power on your roof, see **.  For more solar statistics and good news, you can read below: 

Figure 6 at ► shows a graph of Shell Oil predicting solar energy will be main source of energy in 2070.  If even Oil companies admit to it, it means it will happen so much sooner.   Solar could reach 90% in 2025 if the world gets serious about eliminating pollution from smog by ending billions of Big Oil-Gas-Coal taxpayer subsidies and supporting solar instead. The Italian solar capacity increased 150 times from 2007 to 2011 ►  The German solar capacity increased 16000 times from 1991 to 2012  Pollution causes 40% of deaths ►, it is therefore a matter of public health to switch to solar energy. We can use solar car paint, walls, roads ► Focus Forward Series: Solar Roadways, roofs, shingles ► solar shingle, windows ► Solar windows see power savings with no transmission lines that add EMF pollution & take space.

In April 2013, Spain generated 54% electricity from renewables On June 9th 2014 Germany produced 50% electricity from solar

Distributed ► rooftop solar eliminates a lot of EMF pollution coming from transmission lines and gives more power to the people instead of Big Utilities.  Solar can hit grid parity in many nations fast, all US in 2018 ► In March 2013 100% of new US capacity was solar ►   In 2013 Portugal reached 70% electricity from renewables and India solar achieved grid parity ► :)  

Solar power is now cheaper than oil burning in Saudi Arabia, cheaper than grid power in Brazil ► and in part of US ► , cheaper than kerosene for 1.3 billion people (in Africa and many developing nations) ►  Fossil fuels are on the way out in EU ►  Italian and German solar power reached grid parity a while ago ►

Future Fusion can be safe, it's how the sun generates energy. But present nuclear energy is too dangerous, Thorium included ►   Some say Fukushima is worse than Chernobyl ► Has the Fukushima "China Syndrome" begun?, hence Japan is now ramping up solar power a lot.   Chernobyl Decay and Deformed shows the effects of current nuclear tech gone bad. 

Coal can be replaced with solar immediately:) as a public health priorityThe Cost of Coal: Overview.  In China's worst areas, smog makes people live only 4 decades ►  BBC News - China's Grime Belt Air Pollution Extreme.   Coal-fired plants lead to birth defects in China, see the 2 min video ► China Sees Rise in Birth Defects.  In all nations, including USA, people near coal-fired plants often die of cancer at 45 or so, see the 10 min video ► EXPOSED: Koch Industries and Cancer Risk.  Coal pollution leads to cancer, asthma, autism (mercury), etc. Clean coal doesn't exist ► Robert Kennedy Jr.: No clean coal.

Ark Hotel Construction time lapse building 15 storeys in 2 days (48 hrs) shows how tall buildings are built in 2 days.  The surface area of these buildings' exterior is far bigger than that of a solar farm on the building site, sometimes 50 times bigger. shows it takes a small area to power the planet given the cheap 15% efficiency panels. The total urban areas represent about 2% of the global land surface. 60% of urban areas is roofs and pavements that could have solar panels embedded in them.  When we add the exterior of the buildings, we get 20 times more energy than we use today if we use the cheapest 15% efficiency panels.  We already have 40% efficiency panels and can reach 60% with IR.   There are panels that produce 20 times more energy per square foot, so that means 20 times less area needed ►  More info at  MIT also invented a solar array that can produce up to 20 times more power per surface area ►

The 3 min video Solar Nanoantennas shows how in the future we will be able to convert solar IR rays into electricity at night and during very cloudy days.  :)  With good battery storage, we can save the day time solar power for use at night and during eclipses.

Solar power + electric cars = no smog. shows a solar plane.  Here are some more electric car news:

In September-October 2013 the top selling car in Norway has been an electric model too like in January 2014, in September the Tesla Model S, in October the Nissan Leaf ►  Kia EV will have 120 miles range ►  For a few months, South Korea has already used roads to charge electric cars ►  US electric car sales increased 360% in 2013 compared to 2012  Bhutan - with an income per capita lower than China or Russia and 7 times lower than United States - plans as of November 2013 to shift all cars of its capital to electric Nissan Leafs and other models  Countries richer than Bhutan could aim to switch most big cities to electric cars.  China decided in November that 40% of new cars in Beijing will be hybrids or electric by 2017  After rebates, one can buy a Leaf for 18K or lease it for $139/month at some dealers. In Europe they are testing a bus that can charge in 15 seconds ► In November, 12% of new cars sold were electric in Norway ►

some reasons for buying your next car electric:

1.  help humanity since you no longer generate carcinogenic exhaust, otherwise known as smog, which kills millions of people each year ► and leads to lower IQ ► and autism ►  

2.  save lives since you reduce heart attacks caused by traffic noise ►   Electric cars are much quieter.

3.   save humanity from oil wars that destroy the environment and kill countless civilians.  Iraq war trillions could have powered all US with solar/wind ►  

4.  you no longer have to change oil or spark plugs; no more smog check either; electric cars have 60% less parts, so you will go for repairs much less.  Combustion engines are noisy and only 15% efficient;  electric motors are 90% efficient. 

5.  bring the end of gas stations that poison the water wells with MTBE or other compounds leading to billions of dollars wasted in cleaning up the well water (example:  $0.4 billion settlement ►

6.  save money as you spend 4 times less money on fuel, since electricity is 4 times cheaper than gasoline as a fuel.  If you have enough solar panels,  you get free CLEAN fuel for life, since you charge at home and utilities pay you for energy you put on the grid.  Likewise, Tesla Motors offers free solar ☼ charging for lifeTesla Motors Supercharger Event?  

7.  save money for noble purposes because electric cars are cheaper than many oil cars after the federal and state rebates:  in Colorado, you can buy a Nissan Leaf for only 15, 000, while in most other states for 18-21, 000.  A Smart EV costs only $12, 000 in Colorado, see  Mitsubishi i-MieV is only $13, 000 in California and $10, 000 in Colorado ►

8.  electric car batteries and solar panels are far greener than alternatives.  Battery recycling for today's oil car lead batteries is happening at a 97% rate globally. It will be even better for the far safer lithium car batteries.   Lithium Ion batteries are classified by the federal government as non-hazardous waste.  Lithium ion batteries are made from nontoxic lithium carbonate (used in ovenware), nontoxic cobalt oxide (in pottery glaze), nontoxic graphite (in pencils), and a polymer (plastic) membrane. The most toxic components are the electrolyte and lithium cobalt oxide, neither of which are persistent in the environment and both of which are increasingly being replaced by safer compounds.  Wang Chuan-Fu, CEO of BYD, demonstrated the safety of the electrolyte in their lithium ion batteries by drinking it. Zero Motorcycles founder Neal Saiki said that the Lithium Ion batteries they use are safe to eat

Solar is way better than coal, oil or natural gas which spew 100-1000 times more carcinogens in the environment per unit of energy produced, besides far more CO2.  How long does a solar panel system have to operate to recover the energy used for making the panel? Energy payback for rooftop panels is 1-4 years depending on type.   Assuming a life of 30 years for a panel, that means that most energy produced will be free from pollution of any sort ►

No comments on RODS post. But still made it to hot on google. Must be a gsheep! I'll be blocking him.

this video basically breaks down how renewable is not the answer!
I always figured clouds were an issue for solar energy. Now I know exactly why.

I would too. Anything with googles name on it leads to skepticism over intentions. Everything they do is based on selling ads and Larry and Sergey are tired of it and want out in order to pursue their passion of innovation. They didn't sign up to be advertisers. 
The change in corporate structure is meant to reflect that the company has essentially become a disparate collection of businesses.

As an atheist, dealing with death is especially hard. So, I think about this quote a lot. I've been thinking about it non-stop since last night:

"You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and none is destroyed. You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.
And at one point you'd hope that the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you. And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neurons whose energy will go on forever.
And the physicist will remind the congregation of how much of all our energy is given off as heat. There may be a few fanning themselves with their programs as he says it. And he will tell them that the warmth that flowed through you in life is still here, still part of all that we are, even as we who mourn continue the heat of our own lives.
And you'll want the physicist to explain to those who loved you that they need not have faith; indeed, they should not have faith. Let them know that they can measure, that scientists have measured precisely the conservation of energy and found it accurate, verifiable and consistent across space and time. You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they'll be comforted to know your energy's still around. According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you're just less orderly. Amen.
-Aaron Freeman."

+rehan khan why do you share a post and disable comments? -1 to you!

What happens when you consume cannabis indica? Im oretty sure tbe definition of marijuana should be changed.
MÁŔĨĴÚÁŃÁ  which comes from the hemp plant Cannabis sativa, is the most frequently used illegal drug in the U.S. About 4% of American adults smoke pot at least once a year. Roughly 1% of adults abuse pot, and one in 300 have a pot addiction.

Most people smoke the plant's dried leaves, flowers, stems, and seeds. But marijuana also can be mixed into food or brewed as a tea. Marijuana goes by many street names, including pot, weed, and herb. Hash, a concentrated form of the drug, is short for hashish.

The rates of marijuana smoking in adults have remained stable since the 1990s. However, the rates of addiction to pot have risen significantly over that same period. And, according to recent government studies, as many as 30% of today's teenagers are smoking marijuana.

Occasional marijuana use is rarely seriously harmful, but smoking pot has important medical effects.

Physiological Effects of Marijuana

The active ingredient in marijuana is THC. That's short for delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol.

THC is rapidly absorbed after smoking pot. Within minutes, THC and the other substances in marijuana smoke cause short-term medical effects.

Signs of using marijuana include:

Rapid heart rate
Increased blood pressure
Increased rate of breathing
Red eyes
Dry mouth
Increased appetite, or "the munchies"
Slowed reaction time
These effects are reduced after three or four hours. However, marijuana hangs around in your system for as long as a month after smoking. The lingering effects mean you're impaired for several days to weeks after the high wears off.

Psychological Effects of Marijuana

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the main effects of marijuana on mood vary and may include euphoria, calmness, anxiety, or paranoia. Getting high or "stoned" is the reason most pot smokers use marijuana.

Other short-term psychological effects of pot include:

Distorted sense of time
Magical or "random" thinking
Short-term memory loss
Anxiety and depression
These psychological signs of using pot also generally ease after a few hours. But residual effects can last for days.

Risks of Marijuana Use

The risks of smoking marijuana go up with heavy use. Although the link has never been proven, many experts believe heavy pot smokers are at increased risk for lung cancer.

Heavy marijuana use lowers men's testosterone levels and sperm count and quality. Pot could decrease libido and fertility in some heavy-smoking men.

Contrary to what many pot smokers may tell you, marijuana is addictive, at least psychologically. Even among occasional users, one in 12 can feel withdrawal symptoms if they can't get high when they want to. Among heavy pot smokers, the rates of dependence are higher.

Many experts also believe that marijuana is physically addictive. Symptoms of withdrawal from pot might include:

Depressed mood
Decreased appetite
Is pot a "gateway" drug? In other words, does smoking marijuana make someone more likely to try cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, and other "hard" drugs? The jury is still out on this one. It's true that pot smokers are more likely to use other drugs after trying marijuana. What's not clear is whether smoking pot causes further drug use or if people who start smoking pot are just more likely to try drugs in general.

If you're wondering how long marijuana stays in your system after smoking, it depends on how often you smoke. Light users -- those who smoke pot once in a while -- will have a negative drug screen after a marijuana-free week. Heavy users -- sometimes called "stoners" -- may continue testing positive for a month after last smoking pot.

Why is it that we don't get to vote on other medicines that are sold to us? Where was my say in allowing Percocet? More people die from Prescription drugs than all illegal drugs's easier for children to get painkillers than cannabis....why isn't that an issue?
