Logic dictates that a privatised energy industry doesn’t want people heating and powering their homes without them profiting from it. Today, this has a huge stranglehold on disposable incomes.
Just smart enough to run the machines and pay the bills.
Welcome to a brave new world I call ‘alternative energy economics’.
A healthy and fluid economy can only come from significantly reducing household demand from the burden of today’s costly energy markets.
Nothing economically has changed since 2008. We’re back to square one, and some would argue in a worse position than before. Strangling the economy with austerity and quantitative easing is like building a financial dam and wondering why the river no longer supports wide-ranging ecology further downstream.

The greatest gift given to us by our forebears is the power of free speech. The greatest gift we can give the next generation is free energy.
Most of the population of the planet is born into mandatory religious indoctrination.
Passing to the other side will be as natural as entering into puberty, but whether you’re Hitler or Gandhi – the process will be the same.
Unfortunately, we have conceived a filtration process that rewards or condemns for our behaviour in this life. Read the rest of this entry »

As engineers warn of an energy crisis; as all-important power station decommissioning dates is kicked further down the road and foreign policies that look more like the opening scenes of an apocalyptic movie.
Relying on the establishment to heat and power our lives is increasingly beginning to look foolish!
PV (photovoltaic) solar panel technology has pioneered the road forward for humans within hostile environments since the 1950s.
The first steps into space, exploring the fringes of the solar system and keeping those rovers studying well over a decade beyond their expected lifespan.
Technology has the power to enslave and liberate us in equal measures. Today, solar panels are a real symbol of the latter, and that’s why it now finds itself up against powerful enemies.

We’ve always known the age of the oil-based economy was limited, but EV’s (electric vehicles) and PV solar’s (photovoltaic) time has finally arrived.
Nobody likes a bully.
Austerity has brought the age of the ‘smarter’ consumer and with it comes the gradual progression toward less dependence on tyrants.
Oil-based companies and countries have lied, force their agenda’s on governments and frankly caused human misery on a biblical scale.
I feel sorry for these corporate bullies, and they’re hoarding affliction because they can never honestly find real joy or happiness in life, no matter how many zeros are in their offshore accounts. Read the rest of this entry »

PV solar panels (photovoltaic) will still be generating once the long-abandoned fracking fields and the associated toxicity has leaked into our seas when our children are our age now.
You’ll never find genius in politics.
PV solar panels in the UK are fantastic at what they do, and just like the organic food industry; have many corporate enemies who don’t want us all less dependent on them.
The solar and organic food industries have so many things in common, and both agree that government policy today is dictated by corporations and not common sense or acting in the peoples best interest.
Putting the obvious aside, I will concede that changes to the photovoltaic incentives recently; have been unhelpful but required. The feed-in tariff was initially designed to incentivise individual households, but due to a technical loophole allowed companies to profit instead. Read the rest of this entry »

Give men a multi-trillion pound oil industry, and they’ll proclaim that God is on their side to justify the slaughter involved in keeping possession of it.
The enemy within.
This statement is true whether you’re a Presidential Bush, Caliphate, Tony Blair or Saudi Royal – all use religion as justification.
As people, both here and abroad suffer from hunger brought on by greed-based politics, the war drums are beating once more, and those with a vested interest in ‘the spoils of war’ are taking us to war once more. Read the rest of this entry »
