The world is warming. Ignore the only heat source in the proximate universe.
Fans of the world overpopulation myth, magical thinkers, are great fans: one need only displace nine tenths of the US population to power the remaining tenth with direct-solar energy. Unless you wanted to ignore efficiency dearth or transmission losses?
Additionally unfortunate is the inability to store low-energetic direct-solar energy very-unlike high-energetic biochemical-solar energy used by the combustion engine, or high-energetic quantum-solar energy used in the power plants of the world 75% of which the US built [outside the US for the geographically impaired]. No new quantum-solar energy plant has been built in the US since the end of the 1970s. Those early generation quantum-solar energy plants today generate 20% of nationally consumed energy ( energy.gov/ne/nuclear-reactor-technologies ). Imagine the benefit of adding current generation quantum-solar energy plants.

China loves to shame America. Chairmanobama’s ludicrous monetary policy inspires heavy chortling and finger wagging which is pathetisad. And china is outbuilding us domestically in sensible quantum-solar energy:
Do the math outside reality
“Each square meter of panel is therefore exposed to 5 kWh of solar energy per day. At 15% efficiency, our square meter captures and delivers 0.75 kWh of energy to the house.”
How many houses will be immediately adjoining a direct-solar farm? Oh those pesky transmission losses. “Outside reality” is not an unfamiliar claim for physicists who believe in multiple-everythings.
Oh you want to build on PRIVATE property? No problem! Merely abuse the coercive power of government on a house by house basis or fundamentally transform America into a dictatorship with a brief stint of progressive socialism.
People should cooperate with the minority energy preference! “should” always ends in genocide.
And much like tv-physicists the ucsd article quickly shifts assumed conclusions into evidence for the next magical-logic conclusion reasserting the truthiness with an “in fact” :
“In fact, we can extend this argument to the nation or world as a whole. Even at 8% efficiency (typical thin film multi-junction device), we could generate all primary power with a minor land footprint, as the picture below shows”
The image shows an equator proximate band in an area not known for its tendency to share with others. Redistribution of wealth, of course! Then everyone will [have to] share with each according to his need. duh. Once everyone is poor electricity will have to be affordable or it’ll be unfair!
Be sure to
- ignore the material cost,
- ignore the manufacturing cost,
- ignore the transportation cost,
- ignore the labor cost,
- ignore construction time,
- ignore the maintenance cost,
- ignore the inability to store direct-solar energy,
- ignore the narrow window of full spectrum light,
- ignore atmospheric variation
- ignore solar output variation (you already do if you’re a manmadeglobalwarming cult believer)
- ignore private property ownership
- ignore market valuation
- ignore voting majority
- ignore the utter nonsensical “renewable” double speak in gross violation of thermodynamics
- ignore use of actual-fuel for every phase of construction
- ignore night time
Direct-solar energy IS NOT a fuel.
Remember how the earth was flat when everyone believed it was flat? When reality becomes inconvenient simply form consensus of non-truths (lies) to forge your own truthiness. So let’s raise taxes to cool the sun.
The goals of the magical thinking obviously include everyone is to be alone, cold, hungry, afraid, in darkness, amidst global genocide of the parasite known as man.
The attempted willful interruption of evolution (“endangered” species) activists will also be fans of the Small Modular Reactors

While us fuddieduddies are quagmired in regulatory approval China is already implementing their tweaked version of American SMR designs. Small is not briefcase small; it’s ~600 tons small vs what typically comes to mind.
SMAHRT quantum-solar energy: Small Modular Advanced High Temperature Reactor rearrange not only the SMR acronym but switch cooling liquid substance and location. iMSR: Integrated Molten Salt Reactor. Oak Ridge and China collaboration — regulation inspired partnership in much the same way tax increases inspire job creators to move their wealth or homes outside the US.
Perhaps the future re-education camps under chairmanobama will export dissidents to Chinese labor camps to build their quantum-solar energy infrastructure? Everyone is equal, but some are more equal. Only the more equal deserve rights or collective bargaining. The American Auschwitz in China will have no labor unions albeit labor union backing.
Give your valentine an imaginary- or delusional gift: a very small box of one piece of chocolate citing advances in technology that this box will be bigger someday and the passage of time will effect an increase in flavorfulness of the chocolate. Enjoy what it’s not and give me most of your money, honey.
For everything else there’s baby soylent green. Yes, there is already genocide in America. It’s orders of magnitude greater in number than mere “medical” personnel intervention abortion: “contra”ception. Rarely contra, frequently ception its objective always unnoticeable pregnancy: youth murder more tolerated than german national socialist slaughter camps.
