Wind power and ground solar might as well be Unicorn Power for all the good it will do us.

And I'll take the Nuclear Plant option, including storing it in my state (New Mexico).

If the idiots would just get out of the way, we could easily end our dependence upon foreign energy. Let them DRINK their oil.

Here is a link to a sort of cute girl on a webcam that uses the same sort of technology.

This is the same kind of software that comes with most webcams and will put funny glasses on your face or give you a mustache and stuff. They're just using it to recognize the printed picture and orientation.

JihadAllah - nice explaination of "clean coal." The short explanation is it's a big fat lie, but you put it so much better!

OMFG LMAO @Syke22 he's like some retarded poster who cant articulate without making himself sound like he's BYE BYE!!!!! and just throws txt spk around totally made me lol.lol, then at the end where he completely missed the entire point of the video, and didn't mention the cool VR effect...that was sooo like LOLZ!

Dude. English is a fantastic language. You should try learning it!

As for the vid, that was ingenious! I only wish I had a webcam to try it out.

For those wondering about "clean coal":

Clean Coal pollutes less than standard coal when burnt, but not significantly so. Whatever pollution is saved by burning "clean coal" instead of standard coal is lost when you take into account the amount of pollutants produced during the process of making the coal "clean" in the first place.

That is awesome... now if only I had a webcam...

as for this debate about clean coal and such... the only way coal can be clean is if the pollutants can be put to good use, such as making bio fuel from algae.

As for Nuclear, I am unsure why we do not just start launching our radioactive waste into space with the space shuttle or something, and have it all go to the sun...

Also, with the technology being used in the heat transfer process, there is very little loss. There is a pipe running the length of the concentrator that is encapsulated in glass and between the glass and the pipe is a nitrogen enriched vacuum. This minimizes heat loss so we operate at 94% efficiency. The reflectors are silver-coated polymer so there is no glass in the panels-- Less money to manufacture, less weight, less cost for repair, and again, about 95% efficient in reflection of the sun. We get a concentration rate of about 10 suns on that pipe. The molten salt averages 850 degrees for our production plant. Oil can be heated to around 750 and water/glycol up to around 350 degrees... Run that through a heat exchanger, make steam, spin a turbine, make electricity--and the initial cost is far less than any Nuke plant without any residual effects on the environment.

Victory7, there are solar plants in the works--I'm working on one myself for SkyFuel--that can generate the same amount of power as a nuclear power plant. We are building a field in New Mexico based on a design we have in Colorado using the world's largest trough concentrators. Each one is 400 feet long and 25 feet across and a field of 1000 can generate 150-200 megawatts--about the same as a large fossil fuel or nuclear plant. When we use molten salt as our heat transfer media we can store heat for days without loss in case of inclement weather... Battery storage is a joke--heat storage is far more efficient and leaves a smaller carbon footprint in the long run (batteries are terible for the environment). Check out SkyFuel's website.

Right-wing psuedoscience? I hardly take offense being a libertarian, and I ignore republican drabble. Wind and solar are perfectly economoical for individual applications, like generators, water heaters, calculators, or single homes. But they will never have the cost-efficiency to replace grid power; you get more power with less money (and not to mention less land usage) with any other power source over all these "green" energies combined. How is nuclear power unpleasant? And it's a deal, I live in Arizona with the Palo Verde nuclear plant already, no one gives a damn if we put rods in an inhospitable desert mountain. And once fusion power is developed, power will be almost unlimited and incredibly clean.

there is a such thing as clean coal. i think its like coal power from certain rocks or something likie that. but what the problem is is it is a finite source of energy, and it effs up the enviorment. not with poluition, but with taken away a lot of the earth (please dont say "there is basically an unlimited amount of earth, dumbass!")

solar and windare good because we can waste as much as we want. it will always be there (unless the sun gives out and the earth settles at a universal temperature and pressure). plus, you can store the pwoer from wind. it just takes a bettery the size of a car to store a little bit of it

My aunt is a locomotive engineer at GE and I can tell you right now the company is not nearly as awesome as the website may lead you to believe...
