We are moving in the right direction! I had an older home with a pool in 1975-ish. The IRS was offering a $1,200 tax credit with installation of solar panels on the roof to heat the pool water (Northern California). I think the panels were $2K+. Oh Yea! Those panels did their job and then some. Allowed us to use the pool year round without a heater. The cost was in running the filter system which we needed to do anyway.

It's all good. Sometimes I think our brains are like rubber bands. We stretch them out to welcome new ideas and then the little demon comes in and says "hey, you can't do that". Yes, We, Can.

I was thinking earlier today that I have no idea what the global politics or policies with crude oil are but if a nation or a species puts their minds to work and commit, we can overcome this addiction. Let's go back to "putting a man on the Moon". Some would ask "why" ... because we can. I think that if we in our daily lives considered the "alternative" and weighed the costs in we could find a way to opt for the alternative.

Let's keep looking for positive applications and use alternatives when possible.
