While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Desertec – A Real Vision For Solar Energy

    With the announcement of the cancellation of a major solar power plant in the California desert due to the Not-In-My-BackYard (NIMBY) objections of local environmentalists, perhaps it is time to take a look at a real vision of what is possible for New Energy. NewEnergyNews has written about this admirably ambitious project many times. (See DESERT SUN TURNS EUROPE ON) From EUROSUN1 via YouTube

    CSP uses four times as much water as a natural gas plant and twice as much as a coal or nuclear plant

    That's nonsense. Solar thermal power plants can be wet-cooled or dry cooled, just like coal plants (but unlike nuclear plants, whose lower operating temperatures prevent dry cooling).
