Women sitting pretty with solar panels

Girl power and solar power working together.

Dedicated to Mum.

“What have solar panels got to do with feminism?”

I’m proudly the son of a wonderful strong mother, who demonstrated in her own life, the determination to get the job done, whilst teaching me not to put up with the bullshit of people.

A testament to ‘real’ girl power.

However, today’s feminists have become nothing more than Cosmopolitan reading princesses, demanding the latest products from their super glossy magazines. (more…)

Frack-off with your hate speech and lobbyist based policies

Monday, June 12th, 2017

This is the week that alternative energy technologies provided more than half of the UK’s electricity for the first time.

The will of the people to keep fracking out of the United Kingdom.

The will of the people to keep fracking out of the United Kingdom.

Additionally, the spotlight shone on energy policies benefiting lobbyists and not ‘The Will of the People’.

There is a difference between hearing the electorate and listening.

The North of England has categorically voted to resist the fracking intentions of corporate lobbyists who’ve attempted to force this vile extraction technique onto the British landscape, despite strong opposition by ‘The People’.

My own local Labour MP Chris Matheson grew his vote from 93 to and additional 9,176 votes, because the people of Chester said ‘NO’ to fracking. (more…)

The sticky energy issue of true Brexit

“Ironically, those newspaper barons who declared war on green energy are also the same people that encouraged Brexit.”

The inconvenient Brexit truth.

The inconvenient Brexit truth.

If you’re not seeing the irony here, then you need to complete the Brexit jigsaw with the last piece.

That piece shows the majority of our energy infrastructure is foreign-owned and exporting huge profits out of Britain through our largest and most essential industry.

The same is true with railways, food and other essential infrastructural utilities. (more…)

Real independence in a post Brexit world

“For those that don’t remember a time before the internet, then you will never understand the hold that ‘the newspapers’ had over normal people. How they think, how they buy and how they vote.”

Are you sure your views are your own?

Are you sure your views are your own?

Want to know the real reason Britain is now out of the EU?

The bare naked ugly truth is in Rupert Murdoch’s own words:

“When I go to Downing Street, they do what I say; when I go to Brussels they take no notice!

And there’s the crux! (more…)

The real cost of fracking and nuclear power

“The trillions of gallons of water used in the fracking process over the next decades will never be safe to be used within the planets cycle of life again!”

The next generation will pay dearly for fracking and clean water.

The next generation will pay dearly for fracking and clean water.

Once you’ve got your head around that, the real victims of fracking are the people who ‘lease’ land or take the queen’s shilling.

They sell this wonderful ‘leasing opportunity’ as safe and clean. They tell you it will create local jobs, but the local jobs are as fictional as the safety reassurances. Zero hour contracted security guards at best with the specialised positions being imported cheaply. (more…)

A brave new world of alternative energy economics

“Logic dictates that a privatized energy industry doesn’t want people heating and powering their homes without them profiting from it. Today, this has a huge stranglehold on disposable incomes.”

Just smart enough to run the machines and pay the bills.

Just smart enough to run the machines and pay the bills.

Welcome to a brave new world I call ‘alternative energy economics’.

A healthy and fluid economy can only come from significantly reducing household demand from the burden of today’s costly energy markets.

Nothing economically has changed since 2008. We’re back to square one and some would argue in a worse position than before. Strangling the economy with austerity and quantitative easing is like building a financial dam and wondering why the river no longer supports wide-ranging ecology further downstream. (more…)

The evolution of solar panels in a hostile environment

“As engineers warn of an energy crisis; as all important power station decommissioning dates are kicked further down the road and foreign policies that look more like the opening scenes of an apocalyptic movie – relying on the establishment to heat and power our lives is increasingly beginning to look foolish!”

To free energy and beyond.

To free energy and beyond.

Solar panel technology has pioneered the road forward for humans within hostile environments since the 1950s.

The first steps into space, exploring the fringes of the solar system and keeping those rovers exploring well over a decade beyond their expected lifespan.

Technology has the power to enslave and liberate us in equal measures. Today, solar panels are a real symbol of the latter and that’s why it now finds itself up against powerful enemies.


And so the corporate resource wars begin

“Give men a multi-trillion pound oil industry and they’ll proclaim that god is on their side to justify the slaughter involved in keeping possession of it.”

The enemy within.

The enemy within.

This is true whether you’re a Presidential Bush, Caliphate, Tony Blair or Saudi Royal – all use religion as justification.

As people, both here and abroad suffer from hunger brought on by greed-based politics, the war drums are beating once more, and those with a vested interest in ‘the spoils of war’ are taking us to war once more. (more…)

The time for solar panels is now

“The UK government’s efforts to kill off the solar industry and lead us to a fracking hellish future has begun. Progression toward giving people the choice to produce their own clean, affordable energy has been replaced by regressive greed-based policies.”

Taking away power from the people and handing it back to the big energy firms.

Taking away power from the people and handing it back to the big energy firms.

Cuts by government to support solar technology will take away power from people and handing it back to big energy firms who have been secretly lobbying to prevent alternative energy taking off.

Begin the fight back by adding your name to the parliament petition: (more…)

Scrabbling about in the dirt and destroying our own countryside

“Go wave your banners while the grownups run the country”.

After years of austerity during when the wealthiest 10% have seen their wealth increase between 50% and 100%.

After years of austerity when the wealthiest 10% have seen their wealth increase between 50% and 100%.

These are the contemptuous words uttered by Richard Holloway a Conservative councillor who was commenting about the austerity protests.

The truth is that 76% didn’t vote Conservative and the working poor whom his party’s policies now besmirch have nothing to lose, but their zero-hours contracts.

Mr. Holloway’s and his ‘mockery’ should send shivers down the spine of any parent who cares about what world their children will live in. It’s a real eye opener to the contempt toward the general public that is usually hidden behind closed doors and how this power-drunken man has given us a glimpse of the truth. (more…)
