Batteries, Lithium, Solar, Cars, and Frustration
 
If you've been with us for any length of time you know I'm a huge believer in Solar energy.  Consider the following....

Every day the sun blankets the earth with enough solar energy to power every home on the entire planet for about 2,000 years. You did NOT read that wrong. We don't have to drill for it, explore for it, or blast for it. It comes completely "free of charge."  Let me quote some figures for you from Eco-world.

In full sun, you can safely assume about 100 watts of solar energy per square foot. If you assume 12 hours of sun per day, this equates to 438,000 watt-hours per square foot per year. Based on 27,878,400 square feet per square mile, sunlight bestows a whopping 12.2 trillion watt-hours per square mile per year.  The earth receives about 274 million gigawatt-years of solar energy, which translates to an astonishing 8.2 million "quads" of Btu energy per year.

Solar

With all the incredible things that have happened this week, from the Supreme Court declaring same sex marriage as “the law”, to Obama running an end around concerning the TTP trade agreement, to the insanity of the “push” for removing Confederate flags and even statues of Southern leaders, I’m going to take a break from the madness for today and just visit something completely off topic for today. The madness can certainly wait for next week to discuss.
