There are plenty of ways in modern life to encounter irony at its best including people socialising on websites while sitting at home on their own. The richest people on the planet are also the biggest consumers of antidepressants, but the biggest irony of all time concerns everyone’s future and well-being.
I shall explain.
Paying for pensions by investing in companies that won’t protect a habitable planet to retire on.
One of the biggest legacies of the previous century, was, of course, the oil-based economy we all depend upon today and oil is so intertwined with our modern lives that it is also deeply entwined within our futures too.
I am talking about what may be one of the biggest ironies to befall modern man (and women). Many people don’t realise that their pension funds are reliant on us all burning more oil and gas, which in turn increases the likelihood of climate disaster in the near future.
Depending on how old you are when you read this article, the pension pot you spend most of your life contributing to is actually contributing to the likelihood of agricultural failure, flooding and water shortages within our own lifetimes. Read the rest of this entry »

I am not a religious person, but a big question has been working its way around my mind, so in a true ‘Power My Home’ style, I will share this with you.
Life on Earth beyond our own lifetimes.
In the old-testament, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by our a designer, overlord or loving god (choose appropriately) for being sick people at that time. Roll the clock forward a few thousand years, and we as a species are now destroying ‘his/her’ creation, and yet we still haven’t managed to be severe enough to warrant a Sodom and Gomorrah style intervention.
How much destruction of ‘his Eden’ has to occur before we make any ‘creator’ angry again? How many of ‘his’ other species and creations do we have to make extinct in this current massive extinction event to warrant another Sodom and Gomorrah style revenge attack? Read the rest of this entry »

Currently, the European governments are deciding on new legislation which would influence the future of cheap PV solar panels (photovoltaic) from China.
This potentially, could put an end to the current influx of cheap and affordable (PV) photovoltaic solar panels which many households have benefited from over the last couple of years.
Many people across the United Kingdom would have noticed the solar panel bonanza which has seen this type of technology springing up in homes all around the country.
This era has occurred for two main reasons. Read the rest of this entry »

In 1971 a patent was seised by the American security agencies for national security on a new type of photovoltaic solar panel which had an efficiency rating of around 30-40%.
Much pain, but still time. Believe there is good out there. We oppose deception. Conduit closing.
Much pain, but still time. Believe there is good out there.
We oppose deception. Conduit closing.
Asking the question, how can an improved solar panel technology be a national security risk?
The answer is oil and the petrochemical industry, which holds the real power within our modern world and will go to any lengths to protect the trillions of dollars and the associated power that comes with this industry.
Seizure of over 5,000 patents relating to new energy developments reported, which begs the question what else is being suppressed to protect the fossil fuel industry. Read the rest of this entry »

The internet is a powerful tool. It transcends both time and space. I can speak to my future son, and I regularly update him and post photographs of our best memories as he grows up.
A message for the future.
One day he will have a memory bank of all the good times we enjoy together. I speak to him today, not as the toddler that he is today, but as the man, he will one day become.
This unique-ability in human history throws up many questions, but the biggest problem is how do I explain to my future son that nobody today is taking the climate issues and our planet’s destruction seriously.
One day our children or grandchildren will ask what did you do? How do you explain that only a small percentage of the population today accept the reality of the situation and an even lower number of people actively attempt to change the position. Read the rest of this entry »

As another energy bill falls onto your doormat and yet again you sigh with disappointment as you contemplate yet another rise in the cost of heating and powering your home, you undoubtedly think that this is not the future we were promised.
Your future energy bills are still unwritten.
Many people attempt to cushion themselves by choosing to switch energy providers and thus give themselves a short-term reprieve through a ‘fixed term’ deal that will give them a guaranteed price over a year, possibly two at best.
When Marty McFly arrived in the year October 21, 2015, energy shortcomings were not part of the future vision, but back here in the real future, our timeline will see millions crippled by fuel poverty and energy costs. Read the rest of this entry »
