Maybe some decades from now all power per flop wasting supercomputers  
will be located in India.

In the long run, they're the only ones on the planet who can afford  
the energy real cheap,
and supercomputers usually burn a lot more power per gflop than they  
should, power6 up to factor 10.

So even existing government rules (within EU that is) already would  
forbid building supercomputers
as they waste too much power per double precision gflop as compared  
to the objective norm.
