The world must be changed. The advancement of civilization is stalled, and progress is now blinded with the global obsession for oil. The environment is repeatedly poisoned by catastrophic events involving oil and will continue to be until it is recognized that our preoccupation with oil madness must be addressed and adequately remedied. Oil madness is rooted in greed, and humanity must bravely acknowledge that fact. The obsession with oil is a global detriment and not sustainable in the long term, if only because the use of oil threatens the existence of life itself.
Until greed is better understood and quelled by common sense, necessity, and civility itself, shall we continue to pretend we are on the right path and allow our beautiful and natural world environment to be tortured and blatantly destroyed in the relentless search and extraction of ever more oil wealth by the greedy, the powerful and arrogant?
It is time to advance civilization and make changes for the better. Human beings everywhere have the basic human right to expect the global environment to be respected in it’s entirety and closely protected . We must offer change for the better, we must be part of change, but we must also demand change. What can be done?
Clean, viable energy alternatives ARE available, in spite of what a gigantic and powerfully-embedded oil industry wishes you to believe. Alternatives and technical improvements are creating solutions that are no longer merely considered just an environmentalist’s dream.
Wind turbine technology is developing rapidly and being put into service, which is progress in itself, but how many readers know that the earth receives more energy from the sun in one HOUR than the whole world uses in one year?
In spite of that amazing fact, solar energy production combined only accounts for 0.01% or less of the total Global Primary demand for energy .
The very pointed question must be asked: Why?
Perhaps a few years ago photovoltaic cells ( PV, or solar cells) were “inefficient” at a level of 6%, but technology now exists to produce solar cells that perform at levels as high as 24.2% efficiency, (Solarbuzz) reported by SunPower of San Jose, CA, USA.
Using a concentrator, Spectrolab Inc., a subsidiary of Boeing Company has announced a cell that can convert 41.6% of concentrated sunlight into electricity.

There is no longer any excuse to support dirty, polluting oil technology. Stronger and better plastics can be made from vegetable matter instead of using crude oil.
Automotive battery technology for electric vehicles has advanced rapidly.
For an eye-opening revelation on the new DBM battery technology, and it’s application in a vehicle that can run 375 miles (600km) on a 6 minute charge, go to: http://www.taranfx.com/long-lasting-battery-electric-car
Imagine plugging your electric vehicle in at home and driving 600km. Stop for 6 minutes at any recharging station and continue on your way. Charge your vehicle with electricity from the sun. No gasoline required.
An on-board solar charger could extend your vehicle range even further. It is now possible.
I believe the time has come for civilization to progress. Let us convert dreams into action and convert oil madness into solar strategy.
