Gwatt solar projects are a problem for this country how?

For scientific papers on AGW, record happenings in the Arctic and the Greenland, Himalayan and Antarctic icesheets. Also weatherstorms and higher than average rainfalls and other extreme weather events.

Most solar plants are puny, few megawatts—while the sun shines.

A REAL solar generator, PV or thermal, needs to be 20Km x 20Km and have storage—probably molten salt. The generator would preferably be in a desert within the tropics—inland north queensland/NT/WA. The power generated should be despatched via ultra high voltage DC lines.

This would be a great project for NQ, gigawatts of clean power. Jobs, money real useful infrastructure, power NQ, sell power to the hated SE Queensland.

Dunno, think there is a memory of him tucked away somewhere. . .
