So a couple of days ago I was reading a news item that science fiction author David Brin pointed to regarding thinner, higher-quality solar panel technology. I’ve been amazed for years that no one has bothered sticking solar panels on the exterior of electric cars, or been more active in marketing, I dunno, solar roof tiles or something. We need power, man, and while yeah, the amount you get isn’t stunning (yet), it’s not like we’re going to run out of photons any time soon. And honestly, no matter how low the transfer rate is between the amount of sunlight pouring down to how much you get out of your solar panels, let’s face it: It’s gotta be better than none! And after all, it’s not like as we get more and more people our need for energy is going to go down!
