I've been green for decades.
Being half Irish, green is in my very genes. When I traveled through Ireland in 1975 for 3 weeks on $70 back when a dollar was worth something, the Irish told me there are 57 shades of green there. I believe it.
And I believe in solar.
It is practical, useful, and fun.
I started to believe in it in 1979 when I worked at the Solar Energy Research Institute in Golden, CO. I still believe in it now.
What is unbelievable is that every time we fill our gas tanks we fund Mohammedians who demonstrate every day wherever they live in this world that they want all people to submit to their barbaric ways or die.
Solar is as much the American destiny in the 2100's as the West was in the 1800's.
I also believe there are 57 ways to create a green world anew and I won't allow Gore and the political lefty greenies to be so doctrinaire as to narrow it to one way: theirs.
What Can be Done
With so much false science and political stridency going around, I wanted to list some of the amazing people and companies that are actually DOING something out there, not pontificating and lecturing while they hypocritically lead the life of luxury while whining about what everyone else should do...or selling themselves carbon credits from their own company.
