Sun Spot Activity Lowest in 200 years

As you probably know is the number of sunspots in the current suncycle (number 24) lower than the weakest suncycle in the past century:

“Current prediction for the next sunspot cycle maximum gives a smoothed sunspot number maximum of about 62 in July of 2013. We are currently over two years into Cycle 24. The predicted size would make this the smallest sunspot cycle in nearly 200 years.” - “Solar Cycle 16 peaked at 78 in 1928.”

The Solar Energy Race Gets Serious

Solar energy - as an investment sector - has long labored under the assumption that breakout prospects are dependent upon a few small start-up companies that have insufficient working capital and miniscule share prices.

That may be true in some areas of the technical advances that reduce costs, increase energy harvesting, or provide the myriad breakthroughs necessary for the development of a genuine storage apparatus. But that is not the case when it comes to simply producing the main components of solar capture technology. Add a comment Add a comment

If You Liked the Movie "Eat, Pray, Love" Read This Article

First, I confess that I went to see the movie, even though I was certain it was going to be a "Chick-Flick"---a.k.a.--Mainly for a Female Audience.

Boy (excuse the male pun) was I wrong! This is a movie that men can learn a lot from, especially if they are already fathers and have a family or thinking of starting one.

Which leads to the question posed in an interesting article I read today. According to one of my favorite "Green" web sites, there just may be a powerful "green" message to this movie, and it gave me  some "food (organic) for thought".

Wake Up Before You Vote

If a picture paints a thousands words, and beautiful music moves the heart and soul, you'll want to watch and listen to the moving YouTube video which is linked later on in this brief article. The music is by Fusion Fable, and the song chosen perfectly fits the tone and theme of this powerful message.

Just as we can "vote with our wallets", there are other potent things we can do to address the real concerns and the unfolding of our self-made ecological crisis. Don't close your mind or your heart until you consider the facts in the video. If nothing else I know you'll love the music.
