Environmental quote of the day
“The first law of ecology is that everything is related to everything else” Barry Commoner

Solar power is probably the cleanest free sources of energy we can get. The most urgent of these is a renewable energy source, primarily photovoltaic cells or use of powered by solar energy. These are not only decentralized electric utilities but use sunlight to feel almost any energy need, including smaller, lighter, battery-powered cars. I usually do not usually post direct content from other sources on my blog but when there are some new post I can support and recommend I will start doing it. Otherwise I use links to give you the necessary information about research done on the blog and the links recommended in a post written on the sustainable Fashion Design blog by Buddha jeans. 5 steps to making the business case for solar – GreenBiz.com (blog)Editor’s note: Green Impact has been contracted to work with GreenWave Strategies in distributing and publicizing the Alta Energy report mentioned in this article. While the economics of solar are improving dramatically, commercial property owners face a significant obstacle in tapping the power of the sun:…
Information about Alta Energy enables commercial property owners to make clear, rational decisions about where, when and how to install solar power – and then complete these projects with the right vendors at the best terms. Alta Energy enables solar vendors to bid on pre-qualified, viable projects and then successfully deploy solar system
Solar power the energy of life
Solar power is probably the cleanest free sources of energy we can get. The most urgent of these is a renewable energy source, primarily photovoltaic cells or use of powered by solar energy. These are not only decentralised electric utilities but use sunlight to feel almost any energy need, including smaller, lighter, battery-powered cars. To use pure solar energy to heat water for washing jeans and tees is a part of an Eco lifestyle, and to use solar energy in garments production can keep tremendous amount of water in production at lower level. The best example on sustainability is Earth. Totally self driven, but because of our exploitation the fine tuned engine it’s almost breaking down We know that energy is a constant mass of that by transfer take one or another form. If you imagine a car crash where the massive energy from the car hits another car or passenger, the energy gets transformed into destruction and damages. The energy therefore takes a negative form and are not returning a good effect. The highest form of transformation energy is coming from the sun. The sun is the fuel tat Earth is depending on. No sun = no life, simple. The solar constant is a measure of the amount of radiant energy reaching the earth’s outer atmosphere of the sun.
Solar energy gives off a tremendous amount of energy
The sun is a powerful fusion reactor, where hydrogen atoms fuse to form helium and give off a tremendous amount of energy. The surface of the sun, also known as the photosphere, Has a temperature of 5,538 ° Celsius or 10,000°F. The temperature at the core, the region of nuclear fusion, is 20,000,000° or 36,000,000°F. A ball of coal the size of the sun would burn up completely in 3,000 years, yet the sun has already been burning for three billion years and is expected to burn for another four billion years.
Sun produces the annual energy output in the world every five billionth of a second
The annual energy output of the entire world is equal to the amount the sun produces in about five billionth of a second,however most of the radiation disappears and only a very small fraction of the sun’s radiant energy, or insolation, reaches the earth’s atmosphere, and only about half of that reaches the surface of the earth. The solar energy that reach Earth created the photosynthesis. Sine the oil crisis in 1973 where the conflict Arab-Israeli warthe Arab oil-producing states imposed an embargo on oil exports to the United States. As a result US trapped up the intense research on Solar Power. One of the speakers for solar power was the leading environmentalist Barry Commoner
One of the leading environmentalist
Barry Commoner born 1917 – American biologist, environmental scientist, author, and social activist. That in 1981 became the director of the Center for the Biology of Natural Systems at Queens College in New York City. Barry Commoner speaks about the transition To quote Barry; to ease the transition from fossil fuels to solar power, he proposes methane, cogeneration which produces electricity from waste heat, and an organic agricultural system that would produce enough ethanol to replace about 20 percent of the national demand for gasoline without reducing the overall supply of food or significantly affecting its price. Commoner makes few compromises, and his environment zeal has made him a crusader for social causes as well. Eliminating Third World debt, he argues, would improve life in impoverished countries and end the spiral of economic desperation that drives countries to overpopulation. This debt forgiveness should be regarded not as a magnanimous gesture but as partial reparations for the damage inflicted by the former colonial empires. The cause of poverty is the grossly unequal distribution of the world’s wealth. We must redistribute that wealth, among nations and within them to combine environmental and Socialist agendas.
Solar power and Eco fashion
The enormous amount of water used both in production a use hen producing clothes is massive, the energy consumption just for washing clothes is one thing but also to run complete industrial factories in countries where the sun is so strong could easily reduce cost of production, filter and boil water etc. Fabrics that absorbs sun light can transfer the energy in the clothe to keep the I Pad, mobile phone and hot coffee running, fabrics that the radiant sunlight collects
The Solar Electricity Handbook is a practical and straightforward guide to using electric solar panels. Assuming no previous knowledge, the book explains how solar panels work, how they can be used and explains the steps you need to take to successfully design and install a solar photovoltaic system from scratch. Accompanying this book is a solar resource website containing lots of useful information, lists of suppliers and on-line solar energy calculators that will simplify the cost analysis and design processes. From Amazon It starts off explaining all the terminology you will meet and differences between them, such as Solar Power, Solar Energy, Solar Heating, Grid-tied solar electric systems, Wind power, etc. To give you an example, here is the sort of information you get: Because a grid-tied solar electric system becomes part of the national grid, the system will switch off in the event of a power cut. It does this to stop any electricity flowing back into the grid – which could be fatal for engineers working on repairing the fault.
