it's a scam because if the purpose wasn't greater taxation and control (which is the real purpose of the scam), then the real logical thing to do would be to pump money into solar power.

the nano solar guys are saying solar will be competitive within 5 years, if they can just be left alone to do their thing. the article below reads like an ad and probably is, but the reality is that the infant nanotech industry is headed there. it's a lot money to retool, and if g.w. were real, the gov could spend a lot of money on nano solar research, and then a lot of money on retooling the economy away from oil and onto solar.

the fact that they just want to tax and regulate and control more, and that's it, as a responsse to manmade global warming is the biggest reason it can't be real.

The "tipping point" will arrive when the capital cost of solar power falls below $1 (51p) per watt, roughly the cost of carbon power. We are not there yet. The best options today vary from $3 to $4 per watt - down from $100 in the late 1970s.

Mr Sethi believes his product will cut the cost to 80 cents per watt within five years, and 50 cents in a decade.

It is based on a CIGS (CuInGaSe2) semiconductor compound that absorbs light by freeing electrons. This is then embedded on the polymer base. It will be ready commercially in late 2009.

"It'll even work on a cold, grey, cloudy day in England, which still produces 25pc to 30pc of the optimal light level. That is enough, if you cover half the roof," he said.

"We don't need subsidies, we just need governments to get out of the way and do no harm. They've spent $170bn subsidising nuclear power over the last thirty years," he said.

I think the extreme increase in the polar bear population within the last year would corroborate his view.

The federal government already has a variety of subsidy programs for renewable energy and more money is a part of most of the presidential candidates platforms.

no I mean like a manhattan project for solar energy, and then a lot of programs to get individuals and businesses and industries to switch over.

I mean, right now renewable energy is just a waste for 99% because it just isn't cost competitive.

John Coleman is dead wrong; Religion is the "Biggest Scam in History", Mr. Coleman needs to get his facts straight.

Government will fight distributed solar tooth and nail because it would largely decentralize electric power generation and threaten the electric power cartel.

Some consider that "Global Warming" is a religion and that Al Gore is our savior.
