Nicely done Germany. I will take solar over wind and wave any day of the week and scalar wave, or should I say longitudinal electromagnetic wave energy over them all.

When this is also on the front page of every news paper in the United States and Canada we will know that our efforts have finally made significant in roads.

"Due to the continuing boom in solar energy, many power stations throughout the sector and across Europe are no longer profitable to operate. During the first half of 2013, the conventional power generation divisionís operating result fell by almost two-thirds."

Congratulation to Germany, now let's all get on board.

There has to be a starting point and Germany is it. Fingers crossed that other countries will do the same, even if it's one by one. One is always better than none. Thanks for the good news.
