Oil, Coal and Gas Companies are an ECONOMIC TIME BOMB
July 24, 2013
As carbon from oil, coal and gas continues to fill our atmosphere, the temperature is rising and the arctic is melting. No scientists dispute this. Oil, coal and gas companies are looking at investing as the arctic opens up, drilling becomes easier and shipping becomes possible. Unfortunately the science also says that the down side for most of humanity is that it comes in the shape of an "ECONOMIC TIME BOMB".

The growth in wind energy since 2003 in the United States provides clear evidence for what Canada might have achieved during the same period, or could over the coming decade if we were smart. For a measly $120 billion, or say about $10 billion a year for the next ten years, we could, in Canada be powered 100% by renewable energy, earning strong and sustained profits for more than twenty years.

RENEWABLE ENERGY NOW CHEAPER THAN NEW FOSSIL FUELS
February 11, 2013
Research shows that as of 2011 renewable energy is cheaper than gas or coal in Australia.

Crowdsourcing Solar
February 6, 2013
Solar makes economic sense despite the lack of a carbon/pollution tax and despite the trillions of dollars in subsidies that have been given to oil, coal, gas, nuclear and transportation over the last fifty plus years. Yet, despite oil, coal, gas, nuclear and transportation industries passing on the true costs to tax payers like you and me for the past fifty years, solar power still makes economic sense in competition with and against the perpetrators of the greatest crimes against humanity, that results from the use of fossil and nuclear energy.
