solar! wind! power!

If only solar power was more commonplace, and less of a luxury. Another problem is that solar cells today still take too much energy to be manufactured and they don't produce much over their lifetimes making the situation, energy-conservation-wise, something of a wash (or worse). Yes, they aren't practical in many situations. But they are still useful--and cool.

Here in Ireland it's much easier to use wind. Here's a map of some current wind farms, and a new wind farm is being built south of Dublin. When completed, it will be the largest in the world (200 turbines, three times the generating capacity of all current offshore wind farms worldwide).
