A Good Place For Solar

Last month i looked at solar strength in the USA and compared it to Germany. Now i've found a solar map of the world. Averaging data over the period 1990-2004, they came up with this map.

It seems the place with the most sunshine is Australia. Of course, as Germany demonstrates, solar power is viable even in the 'blue' areas. We can do it almost anywhere - but places like Australia should be putting up solar panels like there's no tomorrow.
