“Against stupidity, the very gods themselves contain in vain” —Schiller

One graphic to say it all... (well, on this topic anyway)


[More than half of newly added world energy capacity now comes from renewables]


If you're interested in environment issues, you may like to know that I have updated the Environment & Technology section of my web site.

The updated parts include The "Negawatt Revolution", Hybrid and plug-in electric cars, Recycling, and Environmental documentaries, movies and videos.

Although the section is quite large, you will hopefully find that it is easy to navigate. I have tried to make it rich in high quality links (many of which have also been updated), so that what you see on the pages are just the tips of many interesting icebergs, so to speak.

If you visit it and really like it, then please share it anywhere you think it would help the environment - thank you!

I am sure that the section could be further improved. Any suggestions would be really welcome.

I have updated my Environment & Technology web page again, with new sections on microgeneration, recycling and green jobs, as well as a few other things.

Visitors to the page will discover that it is more about solutions and good things happening than about problems (although it doesn't ignore the problems). If you are interested in investing in green technology and other green developments, which is a smart thing to be doing right now, you will find a lot of ideas to follow up.

From the page:

In a recent New York Times business trend piece, the small but growing movement to transform -- or at least disguise -- these ugly but crucial energy ducklings into aesthetically conforming swans is explored.

Most notable are SRS Solé Power Tiles from SRS Energy. The company is working with California's U.S. Tile to create tiles with embedded solar cells that mimic traditional tile roofing in Southern California and the Southeast. At a demo home in California (pictured below), a homeowner replaced terra cotta tiles on a portion of his roof -- about 300-square feet -- with Solé Tiles in about four hours. As a result, the homeowner's roof will generate about 2,400 kilowatt-hours of juice a year and his roof isn't festooned with bulky black squares that scream to neighbors and passersby, I have photovoltaics!


Whatever the commercial problems, the world will get to this one day. A great find from my friend Sandy.
