PV solar panels for a crazy world

They know not what they do

August 9th, 2012

An open letter to the next generation we have let down so badly.

Dear son

If you are reading this, then that must indicate the internet is still up and running and the most significant energy crisis predicted by many including myself has not yet occurred.

Time for changes or time for consequences?

Time for changes or time for consequences?

I write this letter to you in the year you were born in 2012.

This is the year which has shown the true extent of problems which face us all. The real issues and utter suffering caused to the average person in the street brought upon by the 2008 financial failure are only just beginning to bite. Unbelievably, still, no one has been called to account or faced justice for this yet. Read the rest of this entry »

Singing in the rain with solar panels

August 1st, 2012

A sense of future forecasting is involved when choosing to install PV solar panels, like choosing to carry your umbrella on a sunny morning in the full knowledge that it will be raining in the afternoon.

The PV solar panel apocalypse in the UK between 2012 and 2018.That smug feeling of walking home dry under your brolly while others around you get a decent soaking.

You do not need to be physic to predict the future, but looking forward should be a crucial factor when thinking about solar panel technologies.

I have bestowed the advantages of solar panels since 2004 when the signs that the North Sea oil and Gas are drying out were first beginning to leak out. Read the rest of this entry »

Climate change and agriculture

July 26th, 2012

The world of unintended consequences is about to hit humanity where it hurts, in his stomach!

Every action has a consequence.

Every action has a consequence.

For those that thought climate change was about giving the British Isles a Mediterranean feel, the reality is much more dramatic. Weather patterns are changing, and this is affecting our agriculture and more importantly, our ability to feed ourselves.

In a previous article, I reminisced about the childhood memories of free food, with 25% free offers available and 50% free packets were common. A practice which is fast dying out as food manufacturers look to counter the rising costs of energy, by reducing the amount they give you for the same or higher prices. Read the rest of this entry »

Over the cracks with solar panels

July 19th, 2012

As an old, neglected house with inadequate maintenance spent on it over many years, the cracks are showing in our country’s energy infrastructure, which is why a solar panel installation has become a wise investment.

Can cheap oil be sustained?

Can cheap oil be sustained?

Living Memory and learning from it are one of the things that give human beings the edge over the rest of the animal kingdom. Using experience, and our living memories from the 1970’s blackouts, when Britain’s energy infrastructure was last updated, we can see the upcoming issue’s that will occur.

With new infrastructure updates now required in 2012 and beyond, and one-third of our countries’ power-generating capacity needing to replace, the additional costs and inevitable further rise in our energy bills, will yet again, see fuel poverty brought to the doorsteps of millions at best or blackout situations at worst.

Common sense and PV solar panels

July 13th, 2012

We are a world in need of PV solar panels (photovoltaic) and other alternative technologies.

I am not a fan of football myself, but some people including myself think goal-line technology in the game is just common sense, although some people prevent this from happening.

PV solar panels for a crazy world.

PV solar panels for a crazy world.

A banking system, which does not gamble other people’s savings off, is another example of common sense thrown out with the dishwater, even after the economic crash, people still prevent this happening.

The most significant and most fundamental bewilderment is economic growth. With our newly acquired eyes in the sky, we can for the first time in history look down at ourselves in virtual god-like detail. We can see our impact; we can see we have nowhere else to go. Read the rest of this entry »

The dragon is cunning and dangerous

July 6th, 2012

A wise man once said, Leave the dragon to sleep, for once it has awoken, it will crush us all. There is a transition in progress that we in the west are only just waking up too.

Should have let the dragon sleep.

Should have let the dragon sleep.

This transition began 15 years ago, and in such a short time, we (The UK, Europe and America) have suckered them into transferring our prosperous economies, as a gullible pensioner sweet-talked into transferring their life savings in the guise of benefiting their grandchildren.

The promise of cheaper goods for our old economies was too good an opportunity. For a while, the western economies thought, we were the ones taking advantage of the new younger upstarts. Read the rest of this entry »
