Australians could soon be living in solar-powered glass houses as part of the battle to cut carbon emissions, a researcher predicts. Professor John Bell of the Queensland University of Technology said houses made almost entirely of glass solar cells could become a reality in three to five years. “They wouldn“t quite (use the glass) around the bathroom, but I think people are beginning to look for ways to offset some of the issues of climate change,” he said.
