Thanks for your input to the debate.

Do you know or have you seen any figures on how much it would cost (dollars,
time, land) to build sufficient solar capacity to generate Australia's
anticipated energy demands by 2050. And where, practically, it (or I should
say they being solar power stations) be built?

The idea of significantly reducing demand is a theoretically sound one but
would involve radically changing consumption habits of a European-style
civilisation used to untrammelled growth for over a century. Its, sadly,
unrealistic to imagine that happening in 50 let alone 100 years.

Anyway, good to see others being 'simply smarter' when it comes to every day
energy use.
