Wow, very good video.  Very rare that I will actually watch all of a 4 and a half minute video unless it's music, but that was damn good.  Someone said something about traction.  That's a good point I think.  There might be a couple logistics to figure out here and there I think, but they've come that far with it, they've got it down to be able to do it, I have no doubt.  There's only one major problem...

It would make entirely too much sense.:shrug:

They addressed that in the video.

I think this is a fantastic idea, but I have a very hard time imagining some town throwing down a couple hundred million dollars to replace all their roads with that when they could just continue to use asphalt for a fraction of the price. I really hate that economics is the sole determining factor in some of these situations, but that's the truth of it all :shrug:

I could see cities like Portland, Seattle doing something like this, but it would probably be over a long period of years.

AFTER, we get out of this never ending recession.

umm actually I would say portland or seattle would be some of the last cities to do this. Solar panels are useless if you never see the sun :shrug:

Yep.  It all comes down to money.  Asphalt producers would go out of business eventually.  It would have to be something that would be phased in over time.  If a business owner were to donate MONEY to the cause though, he would get a lot of business just because of that fact.  There's a lot of logistics to figure out.  However, I personally think it's worth taking the financial hit for something like this (noone would do that though, business wise) to help take care of uh, the earth.

Portland gets quite a bit of sun. Seattle may not, but there are plenty of locations solar could be used near the city. :justdontknow:

Interesting. Wonder what the chances of this actually happening any time soon though, seems unlikely but you never know.:justdontknow:

Of course.  The 13 year olds with nothing better to do and other delinquients in that age group.
