I might add that I know of course that my calculation doesn't include a cost of capital. I saw an IEA study a while ago which saw the cost of a kWh TRIPLE at a capital cost of 10%. Not entirely sure how that calculation works, though.
In any

Could solar really work well there as a cost-competitive alternative to utility-scale coal, with that low level of solar energy?


I hadn't realized how relatively low China's solar irradiance is, given how close it is to the

It's a great platform, and these things are sticky. I can't imagine switching to iOS for any reason.

I switched to the iPad mini retina because fondling it is just more awesome than fondling the Nexus 7.
The RAM-issue really

Indeed - although I'm not sure that's a caveat,

It was meant as a caveat to the statement "it doesn't matter what other countries do as long as China doesn't cut carbon emissions".

For a long time I've heard about the battery argument more RAM consumes more power, shortening time between charges.

The Nexus 7 (2013) has 2 GB of RAM and a fantastic battery life. I don't think an additional GB of RAM makes an

Its funny, I heard of those same questions being asked when AIDS/HIV was making its initial rounds.

The difference with HIV is that in Ebola, the number of virus particles you're infected with has a substantial influence on the

You say the system for controlling Ebola in the US is not working. (Presumably you mean TODAY, not a month ago.) I spell out the system and you suggest that it is more than necessary.
