Vote solar panels and help us

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Let’s cut the crap! You cannot do anything economically without an affordable and long-term energy strategy. Every other electoral promise is just throwing sweets about like a clown at a child’s birthday party.

Fracking versus solar panels.

Fracking versus solar panels.

No deficit reduction, no NHS spending, no up-down or down-up wealth creation can occur if our energy supply isn’t properly secured.

Increased disposable income for the masses and thus a more resilient economy cannot occur while our nation is dependent on the big six energy companies. No amount of switching providers will change that fact.

In fact, the only reason the 1980s boomed was that of the considerable investment in the North Sea, but now a more permanent fix is required for our future energy requirements.

Fast forward thirty years and the short term-ism of that investment is now becoming apparent (ironically, less time than solar panel systems working life) and a fresher approach to unlocking household income from the uncertainty and volatility of global energy markets is now required. (more…)

Have we forgotten our roots?

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

Keeping up with the neighbours has been the driving force for our economy since the 1950s and has begun to drive the desire for solar panels today.

Appearing to be middle class.

Appearing to be middle class.

Although this social-climbing can help drive the uptake of alternative technologies going forward, unfortunately, this desire to be accepted as an equal among the German car clad driveways of Britain has tainted our society’s ability to empathise.

As a forty-something growing up in the 1970s, the desire of my parents to be middle classed was always overshadowed by the hope to survive the economic problems of those times.

Today, I hear people who should know better, now condemning the victims of our current economic woes and this has awoken me to the mass hate-filled indoctrination being spewed out by interwoven media and politics. (more…)

Baby boomers still rebellious at heart

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

The largest demographic to adopt solar panels today were young in the 60s. So 1960s style shifts in culture is being led by the Baby boomers that are still rebellious at heart.

1968 - Showing the young ones, how its done.

1968 – Showing the young ones, how its done.

Releasing the grip of a centralised energy system was never going to be easy.

Decentralising our energy supply and disinvestment in fossil fuels achieved while being led by those who have changed our society before.

The current establishment don’t want people generating their power or heating our homes without them.

If you want to teach politicians that ‘the people’ hold the balance of power or your merely fed-up of being a cash cow for a privatised energy system, then solar panels are for you. (more…)

Solar panels are a national security issue

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

An open letter to The Prime Minister, The Queen and country.

I never thought I would lambast a Prime Minister, but hey, even they are fallible. When a judgement is tainted by Downing Street ambitions, you have to speak out.

Your country needs you to adopt solar panels.

Your country needs you to adopt solar panels.

Unfortunately, national security is being severely compromised by David Cameron’s “greenest government ever” (last election pledge), because under the influence of foreign-owned energy lobbyists, Mr Cameron suddenly changed rhetoric to “getting rid of all this green crap”.

We are currently engaged in an economic war with Russia. Russia’s energy dominance over Europe has spooked those in control to act. Resource wars are already here to stay and just as dangerous as those years of the Soviet era. (more…)

Your stuff owns you

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

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.

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. (more…)

Babies in debt so time for a reset

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

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.

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.
