The sun is a wonderful resource for providing clean, free energy. Jo Borras illustrates potential to harness the power of the sun by describing several examples of DIY projects, such as ways to help heat and cool one’s home and he includes a step by step graphic for building your own cell phone charger. He also describes a wind and solar powered Volkswagen Beetle built by Segun Oyeyiola, a student in Nigeria. Mr. Borras hopes for the day when we will all more fully take advantage of the power given us by our friend the sun.
- The sun provides energy that is cheap, clean, and nearly everywhere human beings live and work. the potential of solar power has excited some of the brightest minds in American history.
- We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature’s inexhaustible sources of energy – sun, wind, and tide .
- Thomas Edison spoke those words to Henry Ford and Harvey Firestone way back in 1931. If those names sound familiar, it’s because those three men are often credited with creating modern America.
