How Solar Energy is Creeping Into Our Daily Life

Thanks to the growing concern about global warming and the dangers of greenhouse gases, people are hearing and reading and seeing more about renewable energy and solar energy in particular.

The way solar energy is creeping into our daily lives is quite remarkable, and this can only be great news for us, our society and the future of our society and our planet.

Here we’ll look at how solar energy news and terms are becoming part of our everyday language, and the increasing number and type of applications to which solar is being applied.

Can Solar Energy Help Prevent Global Warming?

Unless you’ve been holidaying on a distant planet or had your head in the sand for the last few years, it’s probably a safe bet to say you’ve heard something almost every day about global warming and the devastating effects it’s having on us and our planet, and the even more devastating effects it will have unless steps are taken to reverse its effects.

Much of the blame for causing global warming has been placed at the foot of greenhouse gas emissions and our ever-increasing reliance on fossil fuels. Holes are appearing in the ozone layer, which protects us from being directly affected by the sun’s rays; the Arctic ice layer is rapidly receding as temperatures there rise dramatically, threatening the entire ecosystem and endangering many native animal species, particularly polar bears.

Hence the importance now being placed on adopting renewable forms of energy, particularly solar energy, to begin to slow down, and, hopefully, eventually halt the onslaught of global warming. Governments throughout the world are now rushing to enact laws and introduce regulations that are aimed at accelerating the adoption of solar technology by setting goals for utility companies and government departments to install solar electric systems to help lead the way to a cleaner, greener world.

Electricity Becoming Less Affordable For The Average Consumer

Our rapidly increasing dependence on fossil fuels and the resultant rapidly decreasing supply of these same fossil fuels have resulted in massive increases in the cost of fossil fuel energy with most people’s electricity bills skyrocketing seemingly from one month to the next.

This in turn has fueled, if you’ll pardon the expression, ever greater interest in investigating alternative sources of energy, with solar energy leading the way thanks to the abundant supply of free energy from the sun. Many people are now seriously looking at the possibility of having a solar energy system installed on their homes as a way to not only save them money and protect them from the inevitable continual increases in their electricity bills but also as a way to help save the planet.

More And More Applications For Solar Energy

While it’s true that, when we think of solar energy, we generally think of solar panels on roofs supplying electricity to homes and businesses, more and more everyday uses are being found for solar technology.

For example, did you know that there’s such a thing as a solar garbage can? Yes, it’s true. You can now get your very own solar trash compacting system. Also, there are a variety of solar-powered electronics available, including MP3/cell-phone chargers, radios, battery chargers, calculators, etc.

Of course, it’s a well-known fact that solar panels have been used during the space program to keep the space stations supplied with power. But, how about a solar boat? Solar cars? Solar planes? Solar trains? Well, except for the train, these are all a reality and exist in some form or another, even if they aren’t all currently commercially available. And the train can’t be too far behind.

As the demand for alternative forms of energy and the opportunity to extend the use of solar technology in more and more applications increase, solar energy will go from creeping into our daily lives to becoming part of our everyday vocabulary. This can only be a good thing, as it will hopefully result in us being weened off our excessive dependence on and obsession with fossil fuels, and a cleaner, greener planet for future generations to enjoy. Let’s hope the Arctic Circle and its ecosystem and animal life will all still be there for them to enjoy also.

Question by justsomebody1983: How do I apply for a pardon?
I am a Canadian citizen with a criminal record in the state of Michigan. The incident happened around 8 years ago and I am thinking about applying for a pardon. I was wondering if anybody knew of any good reputable lawyers who could do the pardon process for me as I do not want to do it myself and how much it would cost approximately?

Best answer:

Answer by Jessie
You can’t be pardoned from a crime that you’ve committed in the past. It will always be on your criminal record.

    I personally like both Mercurial and Git depending on the project type. I work at a small game company and like using Mercurial because it handles large binaries pretty well and we can push revision by revision easily via revision numbers. So, if I have 10 100MB revisions we can push 100MB at a time instead of 1GB. If it fails somewhere, we continue pushing from that revision. We use Git for our web based projects since it works at super sonic speed and fits in with our auto deploy system.

    for industrial hg is better, git is better at single

  • chicos25:

    maybe a bit boring, but this is an actual tech talk 😉 this guy makes relatively long introduction, but then explains in detail how hg works, i like it.

  • aaronnewtonful:

    This is a bit rambly, but interesting. I’d suggest you start watching from 6:50

  • ridespirals:

    I agree that it might be a little more boring, but I actually found this more generally informative, and personally I think Linus is pretty irritating so this was much more watchable. Plus, I love hg 🙂

    Unfortunately this is a bit boring (compared to Linus’ talk)

  • beatti5:

    omfg get the fuck away with this movie

    mercurial is a football shoe
    and this is sooooooooo boring !!!!!!!
    loser

  • simoncpu:

    I prefer Mercurial to git, but I wish his presentation is as inflammatory^W interesting as Linus though… =)
