The cold war is heating up again, yet we must view these geopolitical tussles like children squabbling as a much larger danger creeps towards its next child-sized meal.
The enemy is self-deception.
Past civilisations knew the threats they faced. This danger was usually men on horses with swords, and so spent vast amounts of their resources to combat that. Today all nations, united or not, have a common enemy that is the unintended consequences of our industrialisation. Read the rest of this entry »

We all live in boxes. Some people’s boxes are bigger than others, but ultimately, it’s a box that contains our lives.
Most UK homes have the two main ingredients for PV solar panels.
Now let’s power our boxes without full dependence on global politics with PV solar panels.
The most important factor concerning your roof’s ability to host solar panels is orientation.
For the best performance of your PV solar panels (photovoltaic), your roof needs to be South or South East, South West in its orientation.
Many also install on a split East/West roof, and although this is acceptable, the output of the panels will be significantly reduced compared to southerly facing roof space. Read the rest of this entry »

“A farmer once said to me “if I live on a windy hill, it’s crazy not to have the wind generate my power.”
A solar-powered century is within our grasp.
It’s that level of common sense that will project solar technology forward in the next decade, despite Cameron and Osborne’s outdated and somewhat secret agenda.
30% of Germany’s electricity output is produced using PV solar panels (photovoltaic). The same northern European country with the same type of climate as the UK. Read the rest of this entry »

“What we consider as impossible to us are simply engineering problems to those who seek power.”
Your independence is slipping away through ignorance and lies.
Our success in building the internet has distracted us from the building of our future.
I used to think the internet was an excellent tool for greater freedoms. Now I believe it is a controlling tool and become a shackle for your mind.
A distracted mind is an imprisoned mind, all the while your civil rights, your employment rights and even your right to justice have disappeared in the ten short years you have been gawping at your iPhone. Read the rest of this entry »

“The road to a cleaner world has been made especially difficult by commission-hungry salesmen with just enough technical knowledge to the bag they’re next sale – but don’t lose heart.”
I developed Heat my Home as a resource for the earliest solar adopters, to help them avoid the pitfalls that come with being a solar pioneer.
Solar panel technology has been that next ‘big thing’ for a few years now in the eye of the salesperson, but the biggest industry lesson learned was; if you’re told “Our panels are the best in the world”, then back away slowly and politely. Read the rest of this entry »

“The act of installing PV solar panels (photovoltaic) is just as important today, as ensuring safe drinking water was in our earlier history.”
Because I want my grandchildren to know granny did something.
In the 1920s, all drinking water began to be disinfected with chlorine. This single act of sanitation brought us the rising populations that gave us the modern world that we see today.
These well-defined moments in time seldom seen as such at that time, and the people in those grainy black and white films would never have known the consequences that their new safe and clean drinking water supply would have on the future. Read the rest of this entry »
