. . . we could solve all energy crises forevermore.
Over at Watt’s Up With That, the leading anti-science blog on the web, Anthony Watt turned the podium over to the indefatigable, often inscrutable, sometimes-funny-but-almost-always wrong, Willis Eschenbach, who worries about when solar power may run out:
Their study includes “renewable” sources like solar, although I’ve never found out exactly how they plan to renew the sun once it runs out.
In a just and sane world, Dave Barry would be preparing to sue Eschenbach for infringing on Barry’s humor patent.
Just when will energy from Old Sol run out? The Sun will die one day, but well after President Obama’s second term has expired, and long after all current photo-voltaic devices have worn out from providing cheap energy.

Our Sun won’t last forever. Dr. Carolyn Brinkworth explains the ramifications for our home planet in this ‘Ask an Astronomer’ video.
Shorter Eschenbach: Don’t worry about cleaning the air to fight global warming, because in the looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong run, we’re all dead. Certainly after 4 billion years.
