How do you build the storage batteries? Recycle from older EV batteries?Such a depressing future isn't inevitable. As I have noted elsewhere, only a tiny fraction of the Gobi Desert, if covered by solar panels, would satisfy China's energy needs. I mean it -- this has the potential to replace EVERY other energy source in China, even coal and hydro. But we can't just sit and waste time; we'll have to build the solar farms (and the storage batteries), or the solar power satellites.
