“In just 60 years, capitalism has nearly broken planet earth.”
For those that find life to be too hard, then the modern world usually prescribes lobotomising psychoactive drugs. And, if we’re honest, the rest of us just go shopping.
Who owns who?
George Carlin famously joked, “Everyone’s gotta have a place for their stuff. That’s all your house is, a place to keep your collection of stuff. A box with a lid on it so you can secure your stuff while you go out and get more stuff. Sometimes you’ve got a move and get a bigger house because you got too much stuff.
Sometimes, you go on holiday, and you have to take some of your stuff, not all your stuff, just the things you like. You’re just making a smaller, more condensed version of all your stuff.
Two weeks in paradise and you have to take two big bags of your stuff, so when you finally get to your hotel room, you breathe a sigh of relief that both your stuff has safely made it across the ocean. Read the rest of this entry »

“When I was seventeen, I contributed to the non-compliance movement which prevented the very unfair Poll Tax from becoming a burden on families today. Today’s youth will soon be fighting a system that will burden their future family lives too.”
Welcome to planet Earth.
Student debt is one thing, but unborn babies now saddled with debt have crossed a moral line.
Austerity – the policy of saving your way out of a demand shortfall – just does not work. In a shrinking economy, a country’s debt-to-GDP ratio rises rather than falls, and Europe’s recession-ridden crisis country have now saved themselves into a depression, resulting in mass unemployment, alarming levels of poverty and scant hope for the young.
The Greek and Spanish people this week, acted upon this fact. Expect many other countries to say “NO more babies in debt – time for a reset” too.

“If the banking crisis of 2008 taught us anything, it’s that, if you can’t touch it, then you don’t own it! Unfortunately for us, there’s been a resource and asset war occurring since the fall of the Soviet Union.”
We don't need you anymore!
Your pension is nothing more than electrons on a screen, so when the world’s reserve currency inevitably flips from the ‘Dollar’ to the ‘Yuan’, it will seal the deal for a cold war that never actually went away.
Sadly, pensions are linked to stock market activity and most importantly for this article – oil! The current slide of oil prices and thus energy prices are symptoms of an economic war as a result of Ukraine. Unfortunately, Russia has two aces up its sleeve. China and the 21st-century powerhouse called BRICS. Over half of the largest world economies are divesting out of the US Dollar’s reserve currency. Read the rest of this entry »

“An old friend while enjoying a beer with me, surprisingly asked me “now the petrol prices are coming down again, doesn’t that show that predictions of peak oil are wrong?”
George Carlin – Hidden in plain sight!
“not,” I declared while choking on my Budweiser. “If you see the bigger global political picture, then you should be more inclined to install solar panels on your home not less” I stated.
I backed up my statement saying “You can entirely encapsulate the naivety and arrogance of people through the Sphinx. The world’s academics have spent lifetimes bolstering a contemporary worldview that doesn’t fit the actual evidence. Just like we see with peak oil.” Read the rest of this entry »

“When Thomas Edison first invented a way to record sound waves, people at that time couldn’t comprehend the concept of recording sound. Today, we can’t comprehend a green orientated government, but it’s coming as sure as an iPod player exists today.”
You can’t solve new world problems with old age politics.
As much as the establishment want to dismiss Russels Brand’s recent rants of revolution, he is in-tune with the up and coming generation. Today, revolution doesn’t have to include police kettling, placards or firebombing of yesteryear. It simply involves turning your back on 20th-century politics.
Green party membership has doubled in only one political term. You can probably blame David Cameron for hugging huskies for that, but now you’ll see the Moore’s Law taking effect on green politics. Fortunately, people are increasingly turning their backs on mainstream red/blue policies across the world that have nothing new to offer, other than more of the same? Read the rest of this entry »

“Someone once said to me “A good rule of thumb for healthy eating is – if you see something advertised on TV, then avoid it!” I would be more specific and say avoid Aspartame and High Fructose Corn Syrup.”
But, more importantly, I would like to add to this by also saying – if the contents of your dinner once lived in the Pacific Ocean, then abstain immediately.
What they can’t see won’t hurt them!
I first wrote about the information lockdown by governments and mainstream media a while ago, but the real scale of the Fukushima disaster is far worse than first thought.
I have four tins of tuna with a pre-Fukushima date on them which I am saving for a particular moment. Like keeping a bottle of wine with a good year, but apart from that, I will not eat Pacific Tuna again.
All efforts by the Japanese authorities to contain and prevent contaminated water entering into the environment have failed. This disaster is humanities largest disaster that is being deliberately un-reported by mainstream media – probably due to the helplessness of the situation. Read the rest of this entry »

“The early bird catches the worm they say. The morning dew is a window of opportunity for the smartest birds to prepare themselves for the day ahead, but the morning sunshine will soon close this opportunity. This analogy is similar to buying solar panels today.”
Proud to be a solar panel pioneer.
The smartest got the juiciest feed-in tariff rates, adopters today can still get a reasonable rate while the latecomers will find slim pickings or find that they are gone entirely.
The dawn of the solar panelled century is transcending, but there’s still time to benefit from the feed-in tariffs.
From its conception in 2009, the feed-in tariff scheme has spawned a solar panel revolution that we can all see on the rooftops around the country today. Many of those who opted to invest in solar panels are now sitting smugly (and rightly so) in their solar panelled homes. Read the rest of this entry »

“North Korea today stopped all incoming flights to protect themselves from Ebola. Our western governments have not yet banned incoming flights from affected parts of Africa, but when the inevitable occurs, our society will change forever.”
A solar kettle incorporating evacuated tube technology.
One thing is sure about a situation like this; you certainly won’t get the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth from watching BBC1, ITV, Sky News or any controlled media sources because governments don’t want to panic the masses.
Preparedness has always been the aim of Heat my Home since its conception in 2004, but unfortunately, those who once questioned the future of solar panels and the need to prepare are no longer sceptical now.
Change is already occurring in our society with people replacing ‘fist bumping’ with the traditional handshake. Imagine a world where your local supermarket workers refuse to go to work because of fear of public interaction! Read the rest of this entry »

“Long before I was a twinkle in my father’s roving eye, there was a generation commonly known as the baby-boomers that changed the social behaviour forever. Their parents refused to see the benefits of 1960s change, and many fought to prevent it.”
Lord Nigel Lawson.
This era is a good analogy for what is occurring today with our energy and environmental problems. As younger generations can see issues that lie ahead, unfortunately, there are still people in the population who fight tooth and nail to prevent change occurring.
The current poster boy for this muddiness is the ex-chancellor Lord Nigel Lawson and his ‘Global Warming Policy Foundation’. A deliberate effort to promote a sceptical political agenda under the guise of an educational charity. Read the rest of this entry »

“The few spoil it for the many, and the same is true for the solar industry. Commission-hungry salespeople are putting many people off taking the plunge. It’s revealed on our user’s forum that some salespeople are deceiving their prospective customers about expectations of performance.”
There are hundreds and hundreds of companies from Lands End to John O’Groats that offer great products, great installation and high prices, so nobody should be put off by this.
The problem with bad salespeople or companies that employ them is they confuse people pondering installing solar panels in good faith. Many people unnecessarily abandon the idea because of conflicting and confusing information.
When a solar pioneer requests a quote, the expected performance of the panels alongside the homeowner’s geographical coordinates is worked out using the very sophisticated software. However, no matter how high the software, if the input data is falsely input, then the output data could be considered wrong at best or fraudulent at worst. Read the rest of this entry »
