An MMT site bringing you dogma-free economics without the pleadings of self interest
we definitely need to steer away from economic activity of making things hot as well as making it expensive to be cool.has anyone bothered to map out global CO2 levels, temperatures, and other metrics on a graph superimposing with economic activity cooling ?In other words, when the economies cool off, industry reduces output.Therefore we should see a corelation to atmospheric science IF there is one.The BUSH run up is a great example of overheating an economy and supposedly local and global environments.The post BUSH cool down would show the opposite.Subtract for solar cycle input and see if there really is global warming due to industry.If this model exists, then place the link ... here !
goog,I had a conversation with a guy who is in solar recently.You're correct the issue imo is Air Conditioning. The solar panels produce DC current. The air conditioning compressors and fans run off AC motors due to Power Utility Transmission aspects.So solar DC has to be converted to AC (some loss) and then AC motors are maybe 15-20% less efficient than DC motors.Well the HVAC industry is planning on going to DC motors (I think Lennox already has a model out) on the compressors and fans that can run straight off the DC solar panels at a pretty good efficiency gain. It looks promising.Resp,
We have to figure out how to make the roofing systems themselves out of some sort of conformal solar arrays instead of paying twice for the installation of the regular asphalt shingle roof and then the panels on rails over top of the real roof....
Solar shingles have been available commercially since 2005.
Great graphics, Matt.Definitely more women now than in the 60's and 70's anti-war protests. The young men were mostly affected then, since women were not subject to the draft. But the economic downturn is affecting everyone. In addition, it would be a big mistake to see this as simply a reaction to the economic downturn. The youth of the world is now both self-aware, savvy, and united in purpose. This is a global revolution, and it is going viral, lead by youth standing up and saying no to the status quo and f*ck you to the TPTB. The more repression, the more radicalization.This is morphing into a great turning, as Strauss and Howe, and Ravi Batra predicted. This time the women are out in front, and it is global. Women around the world are saying no to second class status.
We need to find a way to manufacture women using DNA processing (according to required specifications). This will eliminate one of mankind's major sources of time and resource wastage - catering to women. No more messy divorces, alimony, asset pledges etc.
