Sky-scraping Tower Will Power 100,000 Homes with Hot Air
The central idea of the technology has drawn little other than comments from what appears would be science blog editors - the syntax bothers one correspondent and the techspeak another. . .but what about the idea that a scaled solar technology is under development that WILL not use water and WILL have higher reliability than PV wind etc! I seldom see comments about bridges suggesting the bridge MAY take the weight of traffic. . . the engineering modelling available to even extreme engineering is robust and much tested. Just wondering Jeff what actual renewable technologies you support (by the way nuclear is not renewable Jeff!) either in principal or through actual investment? The world isn't flat and beyond those trees Jeff there is (er sorry...and just for Jeff...may be) a forest.
