There are a lot of good animations and graphics and informational visuals in this video, but one of the most common sense things in it is something I don't think I've ever heard anyone say...

When people complain about how much space solar panels would take up... we already have a great solution for that; parking lots and garages. Build them as roofs for the cars, keeping both your car cool and providing clean energy. And as for it taking up too much space, the amount of land needed to provide enough solar energy to the United States is significantly less than the land granted to the oil industry for drilling. It would only take up a small part of the Texas panhandle to power the entire U.S. .

Terrorism is when you do what we do but wear a different uniform than us.
