Here is the latest on the Solar Trend, and it is very good news. The price of non-carbon energy is dropping so quickly and so far, that will will soon be clear to anyone that whatever one’s views on climate change, carbon energy is simply no longer competitive. A conversion generally thought to take 30 years, is compressing down to perhaps half that.

Membranes of graphene – single atom layer carbon “sheets” – have unexpected and rather unusual properties that seem set to enable several new technologies

Scientists predict green energy revolution after incredible new graphene discoveries

The breakthrough raises the prospect of extracting hydrogen fuel from air and burning it as a carbon-free source of energy in a fuel cell to produce electricity and water with no damaging waste products.
