Noted w/thanks, Cal. Mr. Darvish is a groundbreaking hero! And, he's sure that there will be a Green Party in Iran soon. It would be ironic if Iran gets a Green Party in its Parliament before America gets one in Congress.....

Good on Mohammad Darvish.
i was in Iran in 1976. There I saw a successfully growing forest planted by the Shah. It was doing very well and the thought occurred to me at the time, that if they applied the money for their oil to restoring the "fertile crescent", they would do themselves much more good in the long run.
I also met a young man who talked to me excitedly about his life's ambition - the reforestation of Iran.
These things impressed me.
Iran has the hot salt desert. Concenrtated Solar Power could be so successful there that they could supply not only themselves but their neighboring countries as well.

A great inspiration. You are so right Alexandra; solar power would work quite well in Iran. If we had scalar wave power there wouldn't be all this trouble of various causes. Then again the oil firms wouldn't be able to make humoungous profits.
