The sun is shining. The biggest source of heat in our immediate universe, so why does it have to be so cold?
The snow squeals beneath your feet as you walk on it. T.T.T. and E.T.S. --as my loyal readers know, those would be Tilly the Tall and Ebony the Short, our resident pups with fur. They step gingerly when it's that cold. Tires get flat spots overnight. Engines balk. Batteries freeze.
Here at Incoming Bytes it was no less than -38C this morning. Chilly, even for Northwestern Ontario. For the metric challenged, that's within a hair of -38F too, since at -40C the temperature is also -40F --right on the button.
Since all that heat and power is up there, shining down upon us so freely, why do we not take more advantage of it?
These are 'cute little solar toys' that run all day, every day when the sun is barely visible--even when the sky is gray and dull.
If toys will work so happily with solar power, with no batteries, why won't the rest of the world?
Must we pollute and destroy the environment with dirty oil? No.
We have a choice to make, and soon. Let us *choose carefully. All life on this earth depends upon it.
*What will your choice be?
Is that Incoming I hear?
