Solar Power to Rule the World
I came across an interesting infographic the other day. It detailed how much surface area it would take in order to power the world using solar power. I am interested in this due to the fact that the first major paper that I wrote in college (50+ pages) was on solar power. The paper was more on the technology, but I was still very interested in the other aspects. What shocked me about this diagram was how my preconceptions were so wrong. I had anticipated that the area required would be much bigger. Much bigger.
