@@ Birthing of the Solar Age is the latest offering by noted videographer Peter Sinclair – check it out!

Sinclair: “For months I’ve been gathering interviews with people I know who are following the renewable energy explosion – and everywhere I go, I’m telling people that we are in a stage very much like the internet in about 1993 – taking shape and about to blow up.

In fact, the key enabling technologies for renewables are growing right out of the distributed information network that is shaping the new century.

There’s no going back, and the companies, and countries, that do not grasp the scale of the change we are seeing, may not survive.”

2014-01-31-geostellargetcleanenergy.pngCheck it out here, right now!Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.

One Response to Accelerating to a Low Carbon Future, Solar Surges, and More!

    Renewable energy is the only way for us to survive, and the Politicians are the ones vested with the authority and responsibility to make it happen. But they won’t !!!!

    The Earth was doing just fine until Man came along, and will again, once Man disappears from its environment.

    Interfering with the Carbon cycle will have a high cost to Mankind, unless the Politicians can get their act together in time. Probably not!! They’ll just have a few more meetings and form another committee.

    A cartoon on where it will all go . . . .
