The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Solar now cheaper than coal

NanosolarWhile Jennifer Marohasey is making a list of Climate Change Skeptics and Santa is making a list of who’s been naughty and who’s been nice, a ‘Silicon Valley start-up called Nanosolar shipped its first solar panels – priced at $1 a watt. That’s the price at which solar energy gets cheaper than coal. Curious that this story is not on every front page.’

The environmental scientist in me says it is simply untenable that we keep pumping ever-increasing hundreds of millions of tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere every year.

A century ago most people could see no problem with using waterways and oceans to dispose of industrial waste. Nowadays no-one is advocating that we continue to do so. Like it or not we need to regard atmospheric pollution with similar urgency.

Perhaps the real motivation of the Climate Sceptic is that it is more convenient to continue as we are than actually doing something about it?

    Jennifer Marohasy BSc PhD here. I’m not making a list – I’m on the list. That is the Morano list of 400. But I can’t find the list of 2,000 IPCC scientists – do you know where I can find it?

    Coal produces electricity whether the sun shines or not.

    Still waiting for the list of IPCC ‘scientists.’
