Four Million Solar Panels

An interesting example of changes in the landscape detected by satellites in space, here we have FOUR MILLION solar panels installed in the Longyangxia Dam Solar Park in China. I have a feeling that China will go from being the bad boy of the emissions world to its shining light in the very near future, especially as the USA will take its foot off the gas (not literally - they will keep their foot on the gas just as much as before and their cars are MASSIVE) over the next four to eight years. I did a quick search and the solar panels begin to appear in Landsat 5 imagery in late 2012.
