How Much Land It Would Take To Power The Entire U.S. With Solar?

Posted on the 11 May 2016 by Adask

Interesting.  The solar energy question is not as simple as the following video implies.  There are questions of battery technology and perhaps the supply of some exotic elements.  But there’s also a growing body of research and technology that will make solar energy increasingly efficient and irresistible over the next few years.

Given that harvesting solar energy from the sun is much easier than extracting coal or crude oil out of the earth, and given that solar is far less dangerous to operate than atomic energy, it seems obvious that that we’re headed towards a near future without fossil fuels or atomic energy.

This video helps make that future seem easier, imminent and inevitable.
