Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I responded to this comment.
How is importing sustainably produced electricity worse that importing oil or gas to provide for Europe's energy needs? And the Sahara has far more solar power potential than its sparsely distributed population could ever need.

There are several assumptions, possibilities or "potentials," expressed by these statements, but catalytic conversion of (sun)light into transmmitable electricity is not one of them. The purpose of DESERTEC construction is to collect and transmit electricity. The proposed construction site(s) is not co-located with end-users, because Europeans have less electricity than they need or live in darkness.

Or do they?

A show of sophistry by a person of your age is unbecoming.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
