Solar World Round Up - 08/23/10

While the politicians whore themselves out to the highest bidder and say whatever their pollsters think will gain them attention and votes the rest of us out here are trying honestly and sincerely to move the Country and World forward.

Alternative, clean energy sources are the answer to our employment problems, our health problems, our well being and state of mind. Until we live "within" our environment and not on top of it we will never know contentment, harmony and peace.

It's as simple as that but there are mighty rich people standing in the way of progress because that means the undoing of their in-particular "cash cow". Big oil, big coal and big nuke do not want to let go. But they can not stop progress and progress is coming, and surrounding them at every corner.

Here is the latest from the world of Solar Power and those that "Get It"
