Oversupply pushes solar panel prices down

“MCLEAN, Va., Jan. 14 (UPI) — Oversupply and low demand have made solar panels cheaper for U.S. homeowners.

Prices for rooftop solar systems, including installation, have fallen by 8 percent to 10 percent since October and are expected to drop an additional 15 percent to 20 percent in 2009.”

Strange math in this article. 15 – 20% panel price drop and the whole system goes down over 50%. Must be incorrect or missing logic somewhere, maybe the expected government subsidies are huge:

In California a typical 4 kilowatt, $32,000 solar energy system cost a homeowner about $23,000 last year after state and federal incentives. This year, if the price predictions come true, the price for the same system would be between $10,000 and $12,000.

Global Warming Hoax narrative being promoted

Could the idea of a ‘Global Warming hoax’ itself be a hoax or political ploy?

“Outside of a small band of ideologically motivated outlets, the majority of the mainstream media is unwilling to cover the nonsensical junk science of the right-wing think tanks and their cadre of scientists for hire. With this the case, the Internet is exploding with such information. And at the same time that we’re seeing significantly more of this misinformation being spread about global warming online, we’re also seeing more people than ever using the Internet as their main source of news and information.”

Copenhagen climate change activities in 2009:

“The next UN Climate Conference (COP15) will take place in November-December 2009 in Copenhagen. The University of Copenhagen will launch a series of climate activities in the run-up to the UN Conference. One of the main activities is an international research congress, which the University of Copenhagen, together with the partner universities in the IARU star alliance, will hold on 10-12 March 2009. Here the world’s top researchers will try and capture some of the enormous research energy currently being devoted to the elucidation, mitigation and adaptation to climate change. Information about all the climate activities taking place at the University of Copenhagen will be updated on this website.”
