Quote of the Day

"Scientists have confirmed that enough solar energy falls on the surface of the earth every 40 minutes to meet 100 percent of the entire world's energy needs for a full year." ~ Internationally recognized buffoon and former V.P. Al Gore

I don't suppose it would ever occur to Al that the all powerful sun might have some other effect on the earth, like say warming?

OK... Algore wants us to replace the surface of the Earth with photovoltaics. I am surprised he crawled out of his "green compound" after the media attacjed him over his excessive power bill.
I wonder if he knows how photovoltaics are grown? I wonder if he knows how much arsenic waste is generated? Solar is nice in certain power applications but it does not generate the megawatts that this country needs.

Al Gore thinks he has single handedly tackled half of the challenge by pointing out the sun and the wind. Now all that's left to do is to build the millions of solar panels and wind farms to replace what's already working. What a guy!
