Solar Technology

Fossil fuel are any combustible organic material, as oil, coal, or natural gas, derived from the remains of former life. We reached the tipping point with these fuels getting harder to access and more expensive. 
These will have to be replaced, and what better than solar energy?

Rich, yes, I remember our previous discussions. I like your Nero's statement. It is all too true that "bread and circuses" yield no freedom. 

With the growing influence of women in public life, balance has a better probability of producing a healthy society. We need both masculine and feminine energy to thrive. I just hope women don't become faux-men and the men don't become faux-women; that would be worse. 

Gender role research offers some insights of nature and nurture:

Voice and Equality: Civic Voluntarism in American Politics Sidney V...

Alexis de Tocqueville stated that “American democracy is rooted in civic voluntarism—citizens’ involvement in family, work, school, and religion, as well as in their political participation as voters, campaigners, protesters, or community activists.”

"This far-reaching analysis confirms that some individuals have a greater voice in politics than others, and that this inequality not only results from varying inclinations toward activity, but also reflects unequal access to such vital resources as money and education. This deeply researched study illuminates the many facets of civic consciousness and action and confirms their quintessential role in American democracy."

If we want a democracy, we have to welcome and empower all people how to access democratic processes. This can start in the home, in my opinion, and should.

Joan, the link to "Solar Roadways" isn't working.  All of the programs you brought to our attention show that we ARE working on the problem of disappearing fuel sources.  As soon as they can figure out how to get solar panels working after dark, and windmills to work when there is no wind, we'll have it made.  Water dams are good, but we are knocking them down to save the salmon, even though there was an increasing supply of salmon before we started destroying the dams, and nuclear power plants are good, but we have to find a way, or place, to safely store the spent fuel rods.  The very fact that we are discussing these projects shows that man is working on the problem of disappearing fuel supplies.

Welcome to the site, Donald, Jessica, Rich, Susan, and Spud. I feel inspired and encouraged by what I have been finding in alternative energy. We travel an interesting path.

As I stated a few times on my blog, before humans can turn things around with respect to saving the planet, major changes in the human psyche have to happen. Nero said give the proletariat bread and circuses and we haven't evolved very far since.

There's too much testosterone and overly competitive alpha males have too much say. Humans have to admit we evolved from pack hunting carnivores before we can get to the root of the problem. Meanwhile organized religion has people in a mental cage that resist significant changes. Solar is very useful at the Indy 500.

Wattway – France plans 1000km of solar roads

"The solar roads concept isn’t new. SolaRoad, the world’s first “solar road,” has been in operation in the Netherlands since November 2014, but it’s already generating more power than expectedEcoWatch has also featured a similar Idaho-based project, Solar Roadways, whose Indiegogo campaign became extremely successful when their video went viral last year.
