It's okay grammar wise, but it doesn't have good usage.

Your electricity is from water? Cool. I have ComEd, run on nuclear energy and coal. Razz Illinois has a lot of nuclear generating stations, and coal. Razz And a lot of wind farms.

Solar panels have up to 40% efficiency, I want to see them covering the deserts of the southwest.

If the Sahara Desert was completely filled with solar panels, we'd have enough electricity to power at least 5 Earths.

They just had some crews out, we get power from PSNH.
Covering the Sahara would cost an insane amount of money, and initial costs combined with upkeep would bankrupt anyone who tried anything close.

Well, we have a test: open a solar plant near Yuma, AZ, and then use that to power Yuma.

If someone gets rich, then more people will be inclined to do it.

Dismal? DISMAL?! Hm. I don't find it dismal but then again idaho's better than Montana. Wink jk

Relating to earlier in the thread:
Any of you guys ever heard of Arco, ID? Aka The Atomic City. I think it was the first city to run on nuclear power in the US. It gets it's power from the INL. I don't know many details, look it up if it interests you I guess. That's the only thing cool about Arco. Other than that it's an ugly little town in the desert with a very crappy girl's basketball team. Wink

The Pac NW is... not safe. Radioactive wise. Because of the Hanford site. It really messed up the environment.

Quote :
A huge volume of water from the Columbia River was required to dissipate the heat produced by Hanford's nuclear reactors. From 1944 to 1971, pump systems drew cooling water from the river and, after treating this water for use by the reactors, returned it to the river. Before being released back into the river, the used water was held in large tanks known as retention basins for up to six hours. Longer-lived isotopes were not affected by this retention, and several terabecquerels entered the river every day. These releases were kept secret by the federal government. Radiation was later measured downstream as far west as the Washington and Oregon coasts.

Just because you live upstream from the Hanford site doesn't mean your safe. (AKA LM!) fish become radioactive and swim upriver to spawn.

My Dad got a cataract after we visited the Columbia River Gorge. Coincidence? Even the doctor said he had a lot amount of radiation in his eyes.

Not surprisingly, the Pac NW has a crapload of skin cancer reports.

We've had as really warm November so far due to a positive NAO/AO and negative PNA. Hopefully we get a negative NAO so we can start the clipper train!

Quick lesson in meteorology:

Negative PNA:

Spoiler:
 

Positive PNA:

Spoiler:
 

Positive NAO:

Spoiler:
 

Negative NAO:

Spoiler:
 

As you can see, the NAO (North Atlantic Oscillation) is determined by the Atlantic, while the PNA (Pacific/North American) is determined in the Pacific.

La Nina favors a negative PNA. The Cascades (and Pac NW in general) get their most snow during La Ninas, due to a negative PNA coupled with a La Nina. You can see a graphic of La Nina vs El Nino here. That's not the only factor though, it also depends where it is based. (East, west, or central) That's just central I believe.

The PNA went negative in mid-October and has stayed negative since. The NAO has stayed mainly positive since the end of August. Then there's the Arctic Oscillation, which is basically how strong the westerlies are, which correlates how much cold air penetrates the mid-latitudes in general. Positive AO = strong westerlies = cold air is wrapped up near the poles cannot reach that far south into the mid-latitudes. Negative AO = weak westerlies = cold air can "drift" south.

The NAO and AO are in a never-ending "fight" for control of weather patterns. You can have a positive AO but still have cold air across the US if you have a negative NAO, and vice versa. Then you have to factor in the PNA and other stuff, and it becomes a real mess.

But for now, we have a negative PNA, a positive NAO, and a positive AO. (which isn't really doing crap because it's November) And thus November has been really warm IMBY. Tomorrow's high for me is 60, while LM should be seeing snow pretty commonly now. (Be prepared for next weekend Wink)

Things look to be staying the same for at least the next two weeks, it's just a matter of time before the NAO tanks. I won't be surprised if we don't get our first measurable snow until mid-December. But once that NAO goes negative, it's going to be a wild ride with a negative PNA. It's with that combination you get superstorms for the Midwest.
