There seems to be a problem in the calculations
When calculating the energy required, Page says we should assume a growth in energy use of 3x as the world's economies grow. He calls that "realistic".
Then when calculating the GDP he says we should assume a "drastic" reduction in output because of those evil IPCC scientists.
Finally Page assumes that even when producing 4 million wind turbines there will be no economies of scale whatsoever, instead suggests we should "multiplying our $12tn cost figure a few times at the very least".
Operating conditions != power
Same operating conditions simply means the same voltage (and possibly other environmental conditions such as ambient temperature) but does not say anything about power consumption.
That may be higher, lower or the same. I'd bet on higher.
Windows, Linux and UNIX guy
It seems unlikely that MSFT would give their souce code to anyone in China, although perhaps the Chinese could get the source through other means (hint, APT).
But this seems like an excellent outcome for the US: crappy broken software running on Chinese military computers must make it easier for the US to find out what the PLA are up to.
@AC #4: I've never heard of a serious Linux and UNIX guy who considered Windows comparable to either.
@AC: I think the 486 was 2 clocks/instruction, so 40 MHz. Those were actually on sale at one time.
Compare this amazing to the latest news on Windows: another trojan from drive-by downloads, and incompatibilities between windows 7/8/arm/x86 versions.
