  1. Americans must diet to save their economy

    Throw it away or sell it for less? Apparently throwing away food and other stuff cost these places less than selling them cheaper so that more people could afford it... at least that's what they want us to believe, and that's what many small businesses are lead to believe as well. The western philosophy of waste suggests that selling for less will make people only want to buy for less and therefore cut into your profits. It's funny how many of the consumer products businesses that are at the top of their class actually sell for less than their competitors... Walmart, McDonalds, Tim Hortons etc. Less waste is what we need, less waste = less need = less energy use. Recycle, Reduce, Reuse - these three Rs are still the best tenets of eco friendliness. And while we're at it, I'm trying to help others look at more ways to reduce energy use as well as more ways to recycle and reuse energy.
  2. Solar power from Africa could power all of Europe

    The best way to know for sure is to watch the sale of land in the target regions. If the western countries or investors from western countries start to buy up the land, you can be sure that they don't plan on sharing the energy or benefits with the locals. I'll believe their intentions to help the African countries only if they set up solar energy generation for those countries first. Forgive me for being skeptical but unfortunately, history shows that greed overcomes intentions more times than not... why would you give away what others are already paying for?
