I hate the stationary ad that appeared at the top of your page one. It blotted out the beginning of the first item and refused to disappear. Any more of this and I'm outta here.

What a great project and buy viagra pills use of viagra united kingdom land. Seems like there would be little environmental impact. With time technology will make green energy a reliable and sustainable energy source.

I had the viagra one a day opportunity to recommended site 5 mg viagra meet the Desertec team in Paris last year.

Their project is awfully ambitious but I think it is one of the best and one of the most important in this decade and beyond.

Wish them success !

I did read recently though, that solar works best in cold climates. But you probably don't have many sunny days in cold climates.
Two birds, one stone?

At first glance, deserts seem like the logical choice for solar applications because of the high exposure to sun and heat, which is what created the deserts in the first place (along with a posible lack of water). Another benefit of a project like this will be to use some of that earth-baking heat for electricity, and relieving the region a bit, to possibly start growing vegetation again. Who knows, maybe in time this project may bring back plains or forests to the desert.
