SOLAR SUNDAY & CLIMATE CHANGE – part 3
We must teach our children and remind ourselves three simple life lessons:
Tell the truth. Actions speak louder than words. Don’t be afraid.
From Harriet Shugarman – executive director of ClimateMama
There is no longer any room for denial around climate change.
We humans are causing climate to change.
End of story.
We must acknowledge and recognize that there is no bridge to a carbon-free future.
We will need to step bravely into the abyss, trust in science and the evidence and make the leap to a renewable energy future, through our actions now – individual and collective.
This will put people to work, grow the economy, and begin to heal the planet.
We must look “truth” squarely in the eye and not be afraid.
Scientists are telling us and our planet is showing us we need to act…
We need to move quickly and boldly forward to reclaim a liveable future.
Please read Five Renewable Energy Facts for Earth Day at ClimateMama, which is about rapidly growing U.S.A. solar installations as well as the non-profit Solar Electric Light Fund, whose goal is to assist 1.5 billion people poor people throughout the earth.
The photo below shows ingenious technology, a cardboard solar box cooker, built in Oaxaca Mexico in 1992. Corn husks insulate the box, solar energy is trapped (via the greenhouse effect) and voila, the food cooks!
Imagine what we can do together by 2032?
