2. I generally like subscripts except in the case in equations where there are...

...five or six of them in sequence reflecting obscure variables and/or index numbers.

There is a lot of stuff written about tin as an alternative to lead in perovskite solar cells, but personally, I couldn't care less. (Tin perovskite solar cells don't work quite as well as lead perovskite solar cells, but they are obviously less dangerous.)

To my mind we have already developed an alternative to solar cells that has superior environmental and thermodynamic properties owing to a vastly higher energy to mass ratio.

The real problem with nuclear energy to my mind is that some people are psychologically unprepared to understand that it makes the redundancy of so called "renewable energy" completely unnecessary. The required redundancy of dangerous fossil fuels wherever the application of the solar/wind fantasy is soaking up money, land, and material is already proving to be a disaster, first in Europe and soon in many parts of the United States.

I've been following the CAISO electrical grid supply and demand in California this month very closely, downloading spreadsheets and doing calculations. It's mind blowing how well the single Diablo Canyon plant does on a 12 acre footprint when compared to well over a thousand square miles of wind turbines. I may write about that in this space.

Shutting Diablo Canyon to placate a quasi-religious dogma about solar cells in my mind is a crime against humanity.
