Sun Power

People tend to pooh-pooh solar energy as if it were feeble. Yet 1000 watts falls on every 1 sq metre (10.76 sq feet) of the surface of the earth, enough to run a microwave. Oil is just solar energy that was captured by a particular type of plant and fossilised for a short period in earth’s history. Almost all the energy on earth came from the sun, including calories from food, wood, hydro power, wave power, wind power, coal and oil. It makes sense to get it direct from the sun without the penalty of middleman pollution.
