Comments on: Missing the solar show? http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/06/05/missing-the-solar-show/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: garyb http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/06/05/missing-the-solar-show/comment-page-1/#comment-340469 Sun, 19 Jul 2009 20:48:33 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=13100#comment-340469 the same people who own all of the petroleum wealth in the world are probably controlling the advancement,(or lack thereof) of solar energy. solar energy and other forms of energy will suddenly take hold when these people have bled every last dime out of petroleum for their pocketbooks. then these same vultures will also control the pricepoint of the new energy wealth. that is just the way the world works according to them.

All someone had to do was show up in support and earn some credibility with greenies like us. These solar panels help reduce the effects of global warming and flooding!

Opel. This could deliver results. Participating in an event that’s about a healthy sector doesn’t produce credits for them.

On a different note: Production capacity looks awkward, should it not be 4,500,000 kilowatt HOURs per year?

Representatives of the German government should have attended the event. There wasn’t one brave realist to speak for their constituents’ interests or their future? PLEASE. I live in California, where so many solar-powered inventions’ patents have been purchased, then back-shelved. Very sad.

For many politicians its hard to adjust to a new way of thinking, maybe too hard.

Whatever reasons the economy minister might have had for not showing up, fact remains that it doesn’t demonstrate a lot of trust in this new industry which needs all the support it can get.
