Today’s view of the sun was taken, um, today — this morning in fact, at 2:19 AM, EDT. If the image isn’t large enough for you, click on it and you’ll get an even larger one. Click on that one, and it will enlarge. (The magic ends there, I’m afraid.)
I thought you’d want to have something to look at that’s solar related (and the sun is clearly that) while you listen to the best discussion I’ve heard this year about the future of solar power in the US.
The discussion was broadcast on The Diane Rehm Show on July 13th. You can click on the small player below, or listen to the show from the WAMU (American University Radio) website here.
Guest host Susan Page moderates the conversation between:
- Rhone Resch, CEO of the trade group, Solar Energy Industries Association
- Rob Lamkin, CEO of Cool Earth Solar company
- Alex Daue, the Wilderness Society
- Peter Fox-Penner, formerly with the DOE and author of Smart Power, due out next year by Island Press. (You can read Dr. Fox-Penner’s recent talk to the National Governors Association here.
