    “”A recent study indicates that a solar generating facility covering just 0.3% of the area comprising North Africa could supply all of the energy required by the European Union.””

    Don’t worry Richard, they will use all that daylight power to flip ginormous hourglasses to generate energy at night and in inclement weather!! 8>)
