WATWB — Power to the People

It all started with Solar Freakin’ Roadways here in the U.S., a system of replacing asphalt and other impervious surfaces with solar panels.  If all the roadways in the U.S. were converted to solar, we’d generate three times as much energy as we need.  Reduce the carbon footprint.  Solar Freakin’ Roadways!  Check out the video here:

It’s ingenious, really, and we should be doing it all over the place.  And guess what?  It’s catching on because now there are Solar Freakin’ Roadways — in China!

It’s time again for the We Are The World Blogfest #WATWB, the last Friday of every month we spread a little good ju-ju and the world is lifted in the process.  By now, you should know the drill:  keep the posts short and the vision long.  And remember to be nice to your neighbor.  It’s the only missive that ever really mattered.

This month’s co-hosts extraordinaire are:
Peter Nena,
Inderpreet Kaur Uppal,
Shilpa Garg
Roshan Radhakrishnan
Sylvia McGrath
and
Belinda Witzenhausen

      I know, right?!
      Hey, I read DT is trying to expand his golf course over in wee Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 and that the neighbors aren’t too happy. Somehow he’s managed to be everyone’s problem, a bar room brawler who’s not happy unless punches are being thrown.🤨

      • Well, what can I say… His shitty course is destroying an eco system. And he’s such a dumb shit he doesn’t know what an eco system is. At least he doesn’t see its a benefit to the planet– like him. We seriously have special sand dunes here. They ain’t the ordinary type. There’s ones on our beach that are fenced and with signs up saying please don’t sit on them. Anyway when he was here and visiting his course–he wasn’t invited on a state visit to Scotland — folks were advertising asking for local famers beside his course to fly that baby balloon……

        It’s a pity that a person with so much power doesn’t understand science. 🔬

  10. Yay! Go China! I don’t mind who does it first, just lead the way and hopefully we will all follow! That little video makes them sound superheroic, even a tad of that would be really great 🙂 Great news Pam!

      The video was from the original Indiegogo campaign a few years ago here in the U.S., Pauline. I think it’s hilarious. Since then, the company has gotten some big contracts, I think even one with the Federal Highway Administration so they are making strides. Who knows? It make take China getting into the mix to make the U.S. wake up and get moving. Green technology is certainly no darling of the current administration who have nuzzled up to Big Oil and Coal like a bear cub to its mama. 😤
