Solar Power Doesn’t Work? Tell that to Germany!

This weekend German solar power plants set a new record- producing 22 Gigawatts of electricity per hour – the equivalent of 20 nuclear power plants running full tilt. This despite Germanys location- and weather that is similar to notoriously cloudy Seattle or artic Alaska.

Not only that- but the solar met a full 1/3 of the nations energy needs on a high consumption workday (friday), and almost half of the nations needs on Saturday.

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.
