Rod Adams: Desertec “Real Dumb & Arrogant Fantasy”

Fossil Nuke Rod Adams has a bit of fun with the latest BBC article on some problems with Desertec, and tweeted this:

 BBC News – Solar storm as desert plan to power Europe falters  Always has been a really dumb & arrogant fantasy

That is great extra motivation to just do it anyway, of course.

Update: More gloating from Adams on his blog here. Meanwhile, the German development KfW has announced signing a deal for financing Ourzazate, so it might be somewhat premature to declare Desertec dead.
