The established religions who purport to know what is going on, actually don’t know what is going on.
They preach to others who equally don’t know what is going on that they know what is going on, so what is the hell is going on here?
Eye in the sky, or pie in the sky?
I suspect the story of the universe and life within it, is much more fantastical and with time running far, much deeper than the most brilliant scientific minds can imagine.
Do not fear to be eccentric in your beliefs because every opinion now accepted as gospel, was once believed to be eccentric too. Beliefs, religions and acknowledged science, changes in relatively short periods of geological time. Read the rest of this entry »

The greatest fight for independence was the US declaration against the then oppressive rule of the British in 1765.
The White House has stood proudly as a symbol of independence – and even more so, now it has been equipped with PV solar panels (photovoltaic).
PV solar panels are a technology before its time.
This move has become a renewed symbol of independence as the American people look for alternative ways to fight for energy independence in an increasingly volatile and energy-hungry world.
This statement by the US authorities of national pride in their solar panel industry while duplicated in our country and within our own lives.
The most significant power of the 20th-century has finally vindicated my decade-long pursuit of the solar-panelled dream. From the earliest days when people only saw solar technology as a ‘green statement’, to its current status as a wise person’s long-term investment. Read the rest of this entry »

We are now seeing a new generation of people awakening to the betrayal of this current marriage of political power to corporate power, which ultimately only benefit a minority over the majority.
Keep your head-up and your eyes open.
They (those above political class) are deliberately changing the system to drive wealth upward through society, rather than downward, as has always happened in the past.
In today’s post-peak oil world, increasingly more people face a decision every day about whether to spend money on food or heating – they cannot afford both.
This affordability problem is only going to get worse as predictions for energy costs and the associated difficulties creep further and further into the middle-class world too.

This sentence is the most profound statement I have heard over the last ten years since working on Power My Power. It now marks this point in time, in which the benefits of installing solar panels, exceed the reasons not to.
This statement came from one of our regular contributing experts within our solar enthusiasts’ forum, where the age-old question of, ‘are solar panels worth it’, occasionally gets asked.
This once common question now gets asked far less frequently than even a couple of years ago.
Since the start of the German-inspired feed-in tariff scheme (FIT), the incentive reduced to newer adopters, several times to align the reward scheme with the reducing price of an average solar panel installation today. Read the rest of this entry »

You don’t need me to tell you that Vladimir Putin has the whole of Europe in a ‘cheque mate’ position, with his hands firmly on thirty per cent of the energy resources we use and ultimately the affordability of heating our homes.
The squabbling for thinner and thinner energy resources has begun, and we are not in a good position.
An alliance which will affect your ability to heat your home.
Firstly, you need to know the historical context in which we find our current predicament and more importantly, how you can protect your family – despite the power wrangling and muscle-flexing now going on within current world affairs.
I used to wonder in my uneducated years, why Adolf Hitler, spread his forces so thinly, which ultimately cost him the war. It wasn’t until I learned about peak oil and the continued fight for energy resources that it became clear. Hitler was attempting to gain full control of Europe and Russia’s primary oil fields.

There is a saying “what goes around comes around”, and this has never been truer where Fukushima radiation leaks are concerned.
If you think this problem is a long distant newspaper headline, then think again!
If you only obtain your news from the mainstream media, then you can be forgiven for not knowing the real scale of the problem because there seems to be a real effort to conceal the true extent of this disaster.
Three years on from the radiation leak of an immeasurable scale by the meltdown of three of the plants six nuclear reactors, the true extent of this radioactive leakage, which still occurs even today, is avoided by the global mainstream news. Read the rest of this entry »
