33. If some of this money

 

http://costofwar.com

had been spent on battery tech we would have better batteries

There are ways to store solar heat too:

Solar Two used molten salt, a combination of 60% sodium nitrate and 40% potassium nitrate, as an energy storage medium instead of oil or water as with Solar One. This helped in energy storage during brief interruptions in sunlight due to clouds. The molten salt also allowed the energy to be stored in large tanks for future use such as night time—Solar Two had sufficient capacity to continue running for up to three hours after the sun had set.

If some of the http://costofwar.com money had been spent on heat storage we could have better efficiency there too.

But we've got terriers to kill.

and more drones to build, cause there's gonna be 30,000 of them in our skies.

Solar or Drones, serf, which do you prefer?
