We are told so much junk about everything we are and how things work and our place in the universe. I found these video podcasts about our stuff and consumerism here:
The Story of Stuff Part 1
The Story of Stuff Part 2
It pretty much lays out the lies about so many things we are told and how most of it ties together. I say buy a farm and be self sufficient.
We are constantly being sold that solar power will never be able to provide the energy needed to repace oil. What a racket! Solar power just doesn't work unless you are Las Vegas and you have a desert with tons of sun and space. Then solar power is a very practical way to generate electricity. Look ma no solar cells. Just mirrors used like magnifying glasses to heat water to run a turbine. You know like you used to use to burn ants and start fires when you were a silly little kid!. What a joke our lives have become that special interests come before common sense.
Check out the solar power here:
They call it solar power concentrating.
Here's the results of using solar panels:
Solar panels are much more expensive than just converting that heat into energy. It looks like it is also producing more power, using less space, and doesn't require expensive equipment.
$3 million to generate 64 mega-watts at a cost in pennies per a kilo-watt hour.
$100 million to generate 15 mega-watts at a cost of 2 dollars and change per a kilo-watt hour.
Guess what. The department of defense created the solar concentration power plant as research. While the Solar panel power plant was created for a military base.
I like this article:
177 mega-watts in one square mile. They call the technology solar thermal.
This is just crazy talk:

Here's some solar resources I found while researching this post. I might play around with one of the kits.
