The idea with the volcanos is great... unless it triggers the volcano to burst!

Thanks Argentina for stopping selling gas, thanks Bolivia for saying "we will never sell gas to Chile". You forced us to find other ways to produce energy, and now we can see the results!

This is all because of Chinese technological advances in solar panels.
It's just another failure if you measure the temperature before and after installing. The solar fields in New Mexico fry bird's in flight. I doubt it was that hot before the solar farm was installed. If everyone put in solar panels the planet would heat up even faster than now. Stupid now and always will be. If you're idea of a good renewable energy is to heat up the planet. Then you have really got something here.

This is just so obvious you have to wonder how corruption in the USA can lead some to believe that the future can be found in the past, that wars and terrorism are an acceptable cost for the despoiling of Earth through fossil fuels.

Hope that Brazil will follow chile in this endeavor.
