Weather at Home - use your computer to model climate change

Posted Wed, 17 Nov 2010 17:08:05 GMT by Julian Jackson

Join this exciting new experiment and help scientists understand better what may lie ahead for the weather in local regions. Scientists don't know enough about climate change, particularly how it will vary locally. One of the most significant climate sites, climateprediction.net has today launched an experiment you can do at home.

New technological breakthroughs may mean that thin film solar panels will give us cleaner power. An evolving technology is thin-film solar panels, where the backing material is coated with a light absorbing semi-conductor, which are cheaper and easier to manufacture. Several recent breakthroughs makes these look like a strongly viable product now.
