Parabolic Dish Stirling Engine
Parabolic Dish Stirling Engine – This video is so hot it is cool. Sorry but this type of concentrated solar thermal power generation never fails to amaze me. The energy available from the sun at our fingertips if only we are only smart enough and determined enough to look beyond fossil fuels and face up to the dangers of nuclear power.
Why do we continue to dump billions into carbon sequestration and natural gas fracking when the power we seek is everywhere around us every day. Instead we look for short fixes of energy that by definition are limited and therefore will cost more every day that we consume it. Solar energy once harnessed has the added benefit of capping our energy costs. Solar electricity today will cost the same in 50 years. Actually it will be cheaper.
So go ahead dig the last lump of coal, that last gallon on oil and last chunk of uranium and complain that cost keep going up.
