In their efforts to fight global warming, Europe is painting itself white to reflect the Sun’s rays back into space – and prevent overheating.
Europe-wide Next 3 Days Accumulated Snow
White soot ?
Lol. But Steven, you shouldn’t give the ecoloons any ideas, as they might just propose that they paint much of Europe, including the roads, white, and perhaps the US, and certainly the wusses in Australia will want to do that to their country, just like they’re doing the carbon tax fiasco to themselves. White roads will make it more of a challenge to see the white lines. That’s a small price to pay to save the world though.
“Energy secretary Steven Chu, who while in London pitched an idea from his former colleagues at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory: Painting roofs white to reflect sunlight can make a huge difference to global warming.”
It’s amazing that Chu who for years has fervently advocated $10 a gallon gas is our Energy Secretary. Incredible. And look what they’re doing in China, going full bore at developing energy resources including thorium reactors, while at the same time they are just now “hardening” their subway systems to withstand nuclear attack. Why are they doing that? Who knows, but why they do that we fiddle and do little to build up our energy capabilities, and while China is also building up it’s military at a record pace, we engage in unilateral disarmament on many fronts… most troubling is Obama’s crippling of our missile defense program.
London and Paris are going to pay the price for the warming planet and ice free Arctic. It is only snowing there because hot air causes more snow. Every idiot knows that is why Miami gets more snow than Buffalo.
In the last 48 hours my solar panels have generated the grand total of 10W. It’ll be interesting to see how Germany, with it’s much higher installed capacity of pv, will cope with a covering of snow.
You must have a 10kWp system! 🙂
