How Much Sun?

If you listen to coal companies etc, you might hear talk that renewable energy can never meet our energy needs. Clearly this is wrong. The map below shows how much area would be needed to power the whole world from solar power alone.

Obviously we have other sources of renewable power, so we wouldn't even need as much area as is shown on the map. But it still shows that there is plenty of solar power.

If you want more information about this check out the website of Mattias Loster.
