“Within 6 Hours Deserts Receive More Energy from the Sun than Humankind Consumes Within a Year”

 

This is a nice quote from the Desertec site, featured on the image above, that I thought made for another nice, short weekend share. And, of course, that’s a pretty stunning statistic. Any wonder why some of the world’s top companies are putting over half a trillion dollars into Desertec?

Thanks to one of our top readers for this share.
