 Why we use solar energy... -  PT. I 

    - and why we need to use more solar & renewable energy

"Why use solar & renewable energy?" 

Here's something that everyone agrees with (democrats, republicans, independents and even non-voters...):  let's use more clean energy.  

We know that in the past oil was developed as a fuel to drive trains, factories, planes, automobiles, diesel motors for electricity; but, as the oil begins to run out (spoiling much of the world on its way), let's start to segue to solar and use more renewable energy.

Here are some questions (below) we all could be asking:

Pollution over a city

When we breathe in toxins we get sick...

- it's common knowledge now...  is it more polluted in the poorer areas? 
Do wealthy people have bad air and water too?  How can we convince corporations and government agencies to legislate more environmental justice in the world? 

With an increase in the use of renewable energy fuels, will we have healthier air and water?*

 How can we stop polluting our oceans (certainly we can call one or two an unhealthy ocean?
Coral reef
Can we build oil pipelines, tanks and ships that are strong enough to prevent spills?  How can marine animals live when things like the Great Pacific Garbage Patch floats around poisoning organisms? 
Who knows just how much marine life has become extinct from plastics, pesticides and petroleum-based products?

For ocean reef lovers...
Are there alternatives to the oil-based "run off" pesticides & chemicals that flow into our ocean from the street storm drains?   With plastic bags being thrown into the ocean how will we keep our oceans pristine?

The less toxic waste the better

Are we able to keep air and water clean?

Are you able to write or call your local Environmental Protection Agency, and other community government representatives and tell them how using non-toxic pesticides and non-petroleum energy products will make a difference
to all of us?   

The U.S. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is tasked with protecting the environment...  they are divided into different sections across the U.S.  To find out who and where to write your letters, click below (you can also find out what's being done in your state as far as environmental protection):

Will more solar and renewable energy help to keep animals alive?

The Okapis Xantia and baby Mbutiokapi

Careless use of petroleum chemical pesticide products:
a hazard to everyone...  And the inconvenient truth is, pesticides, chemicals, are all causing our health to detoriate...   Please use more renewable energy products, so Okapis Xantia and baby Mbutiokapi (picture to left), will grow up drinking water free from pesticides.

The spirits of ancient native Americans
are kept alive in the petro-glyphs around the U.S.  They may not survive when more pollution begins to cause erosion...  this petro-glyph artwork on the rock has been in New Mexico for a long, long time...  and is part of native American heritage. This is just one heritage among thousands that need to be preserved - isn't there anything we can do?

The roots of trees need clean water and soil to grow healthy
Pollution in the canopy:  
How long will the roots of these trees be free from pollution? 
How long before trees and plants are considered an "endangered species"?*

Koala in the Phillip Island Nature Park

Extinction of cute and cuddly koalas

What will happen when this koala bear - cutest animal on the planet - takes in a breath of polluted air in the future? - like many of us, we might be breathing in the same air laced with toxic pesticides carried by the wind and water...

  Why use solar & renewable energy?  /  PT. II -
    - more reasons

Click choice:               Solar incentives              Environment concerns             Endangered species            Home page  

# 1   Reduce pollution:

Using products, equipment and appliances that lessen our impact (or carbon footprint) on the environment should be made a priority by consumers.  Every little bit helps endangered species and everybody else... Consumers have the power to buy and use renewable energy products that enhance the quality of our air, water, earth, food and health, rather than harm it. *  

#2  The economics of solar/renewable energy:

 Green is good for the economy...  We hope that renewable energy manufacturers make products as affordable as
possible for the consumer's budget

#3  Solar does not spoil the environment when spilled:

When oil spills it ruins everything.  Solar and other renewable energy helps the environment and does not spill. 

#4  U.S. - based business:

Companies that are based in the U.S. not only keeps business in our home country, but it's easier for technical support and returning items.  Items coming into the U.S. must comply with certain American trade standards, which makes for better merchandise.   (Not to mention shipping costs kept to a minimum...)

#5   Quality renewable energy goods, reliable technical support:

This is what we look for when we offer products from reliable companies.

#6   Discount to non-profit organizations:

Educators - teachers and students: contact us - before making your purchase.

#8  - People can take advantage of radiant heating and thermal heating for homes.
Using natural resources & alternative energy is a good way to go... -

#8  Incentives from State and Federal sources
