Welcome to spring. Sunshine and warm for past days. Women and girls were wearing short, shorts. I wasn't, but it was shirtsleeve weather in western South Dakota. This morning, we awoke to freezing temperature 32F degrees, and an inch or two of wet show. A couple photos below of the second day of spring in Tripp County, South Dakota
And then there was snow in the Winner Park. Streets, etc were so warm yet that snow on them has melted already.
Whatever the weather, and whatever the effects of fossil fuels on climate, take a look at the link below concerning generating electric power by using Thorium salts rather than Uranium. Wind and solar are huge opportunities, but Thorium-based nuclear power production works well with finding the rare earths needed for solar systems. Take the two minutes the video takes. It is well worth your time. THORIUM ELECTRIC GENERATION..SAFER, SIMPLER , And another link Thorium Remix.
NOTE OF MAR 21. 2017: Take a few more minutes and check the comment by Mike Jones related to solar energy and associated with this post. He has hands-on experience with the system mounted on his house in Colorado.
