Re: Colorful Glass Delivers Massive Solar Energy Boost

The secret to affordable fuel-free energy may lie in some pretty-looking glass. Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found a way to use dye-colored glass to harness clean and renewable energy -- and to do it in a practical and cost-effective way. The research, published in Friday's Science journal, builds off ideas first tested in the '70s. The work back then, however, never found a way to effectively absorb the light without losing its energy. The MIT procedure uses something called a "solar concentrator."

"The MIT team estimates the products could become widely available within the next three years."

I realize that going from the lab to the production line is often difficult and expense, as well as time consuming. However, given the energy and environmental issues we are now facing it would seem a no brainer for our countries "leaders" to jump in and do everything possible to bring this discovery into our everyday lives ASAP. Make it the Manhattan Project of the 21st century except this time it will save (or improve) lives instead destroying mankind.

Should businesses and organizations require staff to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination before physically coming to work?
Yes -- At this point it makes good sense and will help stop the spread of the virus.
No -- It sets a bad precedent against personal privacy and civil liberties.
I'm Not Sure -- There are valid arguments for and against vaccine requirements.
