We discuss why nobody is freaking about LIBOR in America, while JP Morgan caught doing an Enron on US energy markets and GlaxoSmithKline pays 10% of their ill-gotten gains for bribing doctors and scientists across America. In the second half of the show Max talks to Kevin Sara of the TuNur solar export project of Tunisia about solar exports from the Middle East and toxic derivatives exports from the City of London.
Note that the imbecilic troll on Youtube (and one always inevitably appears when you try to discuss anything that threatens the old systems) suggests he knows so much about technology (he obviously doesn’t) and claims that solar cannot work for Tunisia because where would they get the water. Um, if this guy who goes by the username gerryhiles1 could do a simple google search, he would have known that Tunisia has a massive aquifer (as the guest indicated) at the border with Algeria. Here is a map with all the aquifers of Africa, Tunisia has no problems with water supplies (yet). [Note the most productive and massive aquifer in Africa is under Libya . . . ] [Also note, there are plenty of valid criticisms for solar including whether or not it is as efficient as other renewable energy sources, etc. or whether there is any such thing as renewable energy (and here) other than solar energy . . . ]
