Is humanity finally changing it’s ways?

Two articles in the news recently have inspired a bit of hope for the direction of humanity. Mr Rudd has announced that Australia will soon be the home of the largest solar powered electricity generator in the world and Obama is finally going to regulate probably the worlds biggest consumer of oil (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article6317920.ece) for the first time in history. Whilst writing this article I was trying to find the page on the Australian Government website and discovered that Arizona is also inspiring to have the world’s largest power plant. This has got to be good news right? Competition for the worlds largest solar power plant?
