2008 – If it were up to the sun, we would have no energy problem. Every half hour on the Earth’s surface, there is more than enough light to provide energy needs for the whole world in a year. We don’t have an energy problem, we have a conversion problem. If we are able to harvest sunlight in a smart way, then we can prevent a global energy crisis.

That sounds nice but that does not mean it will succeed, at least that is what many different bodies want us to believe. It’s too expensive, takes too much space, too much material, it costs more energy than it brings, and it is still not efficient enough. While all these doubts play a role for solar energy in the distant future, it is still a marginal player in the global energy game. Back-light takes the edge off these myths and shows that a solar economy is much closer than we think. Next year, there are already rolling Giga Watts of solar cells on the conveyor belt. The industry has mastered the technology and the machines.

Radical German government measures have proved that it is possible. Villagers have completely installed solar power on empty lands. Power stations contribute to the network and where they are deserved. Many countries follow the German example: The Americans have their Grand Solar Plan and the French President Sarkozy is talking about a solar plan with the countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. According to the Spanish electricity producers, oil companies will be left out. So what energy crisis? The sun is coming! More at www.vpro.nl

1 comment to Peter Russell: The Primacy of Consciousness

  • Another Peter – philosopher Peter Wilberg – anticipated and has clearly argued and articulated Peter Rusell’s arguments for the primacy consciousness for many years through his books and essays on ‘The Awareness Principle’ – see http://www.theawarenessprinciple.com

    Put quite simply this principle is that AWARENESS cannot – IN PRINCIPLE – reduced to or explained as the property or product of any thing or we are aware OF – whether a body, brain, being, ‘self’ or ‘mind’ any sort. On the contrary, awareness alone is the sole reality and all things are an individualised portion embodiment, personification of a singular universal awareness field. The conceptual rigour of Peter Wilberg for the primacy of consciousness – not consciousness ‘of’ this or that but consciousness as such – awareness remains unsurpassed.

    “Awareness is everything. Everything is an awareness.”
