    Re: 13 year old kid looks at trees & solar power
    The Atlantic article has been updated with a debunking of the kid’s idea. Too bad. [webcache_googleusercontent_com]
    Solar-panel “trees” really are inferior (or: “In which hopelessly inept journalists reduce me to having to debunk a school science project”)
    Some poor 13-year-old kid is all over the news as having made a “solar breakthrough”. The news is to blame. All the usual suspects — popular environment blogs, tech magazines — blindly parrot the words of this very misinformed (not to blame him, he’s an unguided 13 year old) kid.
