    Three times a very small number is still a very small number.

    Well it's a small step in the right direction.

    It's hype in any culture.

    We are noted for our self effacing modesty. You may be thinking of the US.

    Exactly. For instance, The Economist has just declared this years "World's Most Livable City" which I dare not name, for fear of offending those who aren't fortunate enough to live within it. In fact, I apologize profusely for even mentioning it as an example.

    All them plans to have solar power from North Africa going to Europe in a win, win situation would have to be put on the back burner for a few more years as 'democratic' Arabs find they still haven't got jobs or money and the extremists battle to take over.

    Hmmm.... for some reason San Antonio does not seem to have made the list. Not the top ten anyway. I can't find the entire 100 list without having to pay 500 dollars for the report.

    Ah. You mean The Big Smoke Across the Water. Fortunately I only have to look at it from the real paradise which is 40 n mi further west.

    "The Economist has just declared this years "World's Most Livable City""

    There's something very wrong with that list-it has Melbourne as the second most Livable City. As we say around here, the only good thing to have come out of Melbourne is the Hume Highway.

    Being situated in the same country as NewsEditor, cost Melbourne the top spot, despite their balmier weather.

    If you lived in Melbourne, you'd most likely spell balmy with an "r".

    New Materials Make Photovoltaics Better

    Praying for an Energy Miracle
    CSP advocates get trampled the same way that BICMOS and bipolar advocates get trampled. CSP uses III/V materials that are more difficult to process than ordinary silicon. CSP tries to trade-off the higher cost of silicon for the cost of the optics and mechanics. The trouble is that as ordinary single junction material prices plummet, the only way for CSP PV to compete is to increase the concentration ratios, which make the mechanical challenges ever more difficult to solve. This puts CSP into a niche that will likely be impossible to escape.

    The second article was pretty good and reinforces the points above.

    What's livable to the average Economist reader might not be what's livable to the rest of us.

    They might be going by the ratio (Starbuck's per hectare) / (basic cabfare) or something.
