Clean Power from Deserts. Renewables are the Responsible, Serious Alternative to Nuclear

Solar panels.At a meeting in the European Parliament, Brussels, 28 November 2007, EU -MENA released details of the most positive, realistic, technological answer to our energy needs. The findings by DESERTEC demonstrate that the west can draw its current energy requirements from an energy grid stretching from Iceland to the Sahara, harnessing geothermal energy, wave power, wind power, solar voltaic cells, and solar parabolic troughs.

So compelling is this technology that it could produce enough energy for the entire energy needs of the EU and North Africa, plus an additional 60%.
