Solar Energy

-- Quote of the Day -- 
"In an earlier stage of our development most human groups held to a tribal ethic. Members of the tribe were protected, but people of other tribes could be robbed or killed as one pleased. Gradually the circle of protection expanded, but as recently as 150 years ago we did not include blacks. So African human beings could be captured, shipped to America and sold. In Australia white settlers regarded Aborigines as a pest and hunted them down, much as kangaroos are hunted down today. Just as we have progressed beyond the blatantly racist ethic of the era of slavery and colonialism, so we must now progress beyond the specialists ethic of the era of factory farming, of the use of animals as mere research tools, of whaling, seal hunting, kangaroo slaughter and the destruction of wilderness. We must take the final step in expanding the circle of ethics."

-- Solar Energy -- 

Germany is showing leadership in the world in solar energy initiatives – the country has a similar climate and solar exposure to BC Canada – they have a huge network in place.  

 In fact, the area known as Sonnenshiff (Freiburg, Germany) produces 4 times the energy it actually uses from solar power! 

Large solar rooftops and passive solar design are now the norm there. 

The country also has plans to shut down nuclear power plants, in favor of clean energy. 

Kudos for their efforts to make this world a better place !
