“Hundreds of years in the future, the oil industry will be no more than a small industry supplying lubrication products and the thought of burning it for energy will be viewed as neanderthal.”
Ensuring your children’s survival once involved appeasing the sun gods. Humanity once again needs to worship the sun.
The baby steps towards this worldview have already begun, and the oil industry has used and continue to use every dirty trick in the book to prevent this timeline from occurring.
Wrestling the power that the traditional energy industry holds over us, will be like wrestling a dangerous object from a belligerent toddler – a necessary, but a painful procedure.

“The revolution will not be televised. The revolution is on the world’s rooftops as solar technology becomes a symbol of hope in a civilisation that is now beginning to fail due to its dependence on burning dead dinosaurs.”
They don’t want you to generate your own power which makes solar technologies cool.
I regularly get asked whether solar panels are worth it, and I just reply that 600,000 homes in only the United Kingdom alone have them on their roofs.
Many installed solar panels to invest, but the vast majority of people I spoke to in the last decade, merely see trouble down the road for their children/grandchildren and want to invest in a better future.
These are planetary sized issues that “we are truly all in it together”. Solar savvy people are just taking matters into their own hands, and I would go further and declare solar panels as a symbol of calm while the world’s politicians continue to blunder their way through the 21st-century.

Go wave your banners while the grownups run the country.
After years of austerity when the wealthiest 10% have seen their wealth increase between 50% and 100%.
These are the contemptuous words uttered by Richard Holloway a Conservative councillor who was commenting about the austerity protests.
The truth is that 76% didn’t vote Conservative and the working poor whom his party’s policies now besmirch have nothing to lose, but their zero-hours contracts.
Mr Holloway’s and his ‘mockery’ should send shivers down the spine of any parent who cares about what world their children will live. It’s a real eye-opener to the contempt toward the general public that’s hidden behind closed doors and how this power-drunken man has given us a glimpse of the truth. Read the rest of this entry »

Strange sounds, atmospheric compression waves and magnetic anomalies reported around the world could mean we may be the first humans to witness a magnetic pole flip.
It’s no secret that the Earth’s magnetic poles flip from North to South and back again every 786,000 years, but what is a mystery is that governments around the world are genuinely concerned that our planet is showing signs of flipping as soon as this century.
What’s the most alarming is the strange sounds trumpeted around the world that some people have compared to the trumpets of the Archangel Gabriel from Revelations in the Bible – I digress. Read the rest of this entry »

As a man raised by a headstrong woman and who has respect for other empowered women, even today within our industry, thus I would like to welcome Amanda Rudd to the Department of Energy and Climate Change.
The sun goddess Sunna from German mythology.
Rudd has recently declared:
“We in the UK are leading the way in clean technology, innovation, creating new jobs and helping to power our economic recovery.”
I look forward to witnessing the power of a woman to help push the solar panel industry into its rightful place as the people’s technology of the 21st-century. Read the rest of this entry »

Get them while they’re hot.
Indeed, its been a week of good and bad news for the solar panel industry.
Sunrise or sunset for the industry?
From day one, I have always cautioned that the incentives available for solar panels were a window of opportunity and those smart enough to take advantage of the opportunity will be rewarded financially and self-righteously for decades to come.
The uptake of photovoltaic solar panels, in particular, has been steadily increasing year on year thanks in most part to the ‘Labour’ inspired feed-in tariff scheme. However, this new ‘Conservative’ led government is almost certainly going to sweep away the incentives currently on offer. Read the rest of this entry »
