    “Its been awhile since we smelled that ‘new country smell’ ” Very funny, Maher. But as we all know since Reagan we left the new country smell up to the ‘makers’, and they definitely invested in a new country… China. And us? ‘Rust Belt’ becomes ‘Rust Country’.

    Laugh-out-loud hilarious truth and humor! (Warning: a little dirty in spots, but worth singeing your ears.) Time for America to evolve!

    Bill’s become quite a bit more crusty in recent months, which I think is a good thing.
    In the past few years, there were plenty of times when I thought he let guests, especially rightwingers, derail the conversation.

    And if I never have to hear from Coulter again, I’ll try to grieve too deeply.

Don’t let us underestimate new technologies, new expertise in energy production are coming out of the Universities of the world. How many of these new breed of experts would vote for the denial party (stuck in fossil wealth) I wonder. We need to keep abreast of the energy news, yes we have a mammoth task, yes there are terrible manifestations of climate change, yes we can change. Not time to give in now .

    Running around the clock for two weeks, ACWA Power’s 50 MW Bokpoort project is an example of Concentrated Solar Power (CSP), the solar that can be called on day or night, because when it has integrated thermal energy storage in molten salts, it is dispatchable solar.

    A “trough” CSP project, Bokpoort was built in just two years, and includes 450 MWh/day of molten salt storage.
