"All the large solar power projects proposed for or being built in the
California desert have a life expectancy. It may be 30 years, or 50
years, but it's shorter than a human lifespan. At some point the power
towers will have to be removed, the mirrors and the photovoltaic panels
recycled, and if the economics and technology of 2065 don't warrant
utility scale solar -- as they largely do not now -- then these sites
will all be permanently altered. Perhaps we will know better by then how
to revegetate a desert landscape; perhaps we will be able to plant
500-year-old yuccas and 1,200-year-old creosotes from seed. We don't know how to do that now, and so we will struggle to heal those sites once the solar developers abandon them."
Welcome to the Future of Neutron Scattering in Canada
a grassroots, nonpartisan movement of ordinary Canadians
that emerged in response to the lack of commitment by federal government(s) to build a new research reactor in Canada for nearly 2 decades.
