The Solar Power Funding Avalanche

In order to power major cities solar needs to get smaller and more efficient. The Mojave Project is huge but only powers 40,000 homes. Since discovering that light has electric and magnetic properties [one would think that anyone with a background in basic physics would know this] there are now solar systems being developed that will allow us to store it differently. There are all kinds of solar products from windows to asphalt and wall coverings that incorporate solar. Add nano to the mix and we are beginning to talk serious solar energy. Still, scalar energy would still be the best way to go. Back in 1931 Uncle Tesla; Pierce Arrow and GM partnered and actually created a scalar motor. They replaced the fossil fuel car motor with it and it ran for miles and miles and miles with no emissions. Scalar technology has been the answer all along but there's no money in it; at lea...
