The promise of the Sun

It’s only appropeaux that the marriage of the largest and smallest would yield such promising fruit, the seeds of which, when scattered far and wide, have the potential to grow into a foundation-shaking shift in the way we interact with the planet. What am I talking about?

Nanosolar. Say it out loud. Let it roll off your tongue. Be among the first, for soon it will be on every tongue.

Leave it to a company in Silicon Valley to free solar energy from the expense and complexity of silicon. I’ve been preaching the gospel of the Sun for years, patiently awaiting the day that technology caught up with the economy. That day is here, my friends, at one third the price of coal. If we no longer have to fight over cheap, clean, abundant energy, imagine the real possibility for peace among humans.

This is cause for celebration.

So awesome! Thanks for sharing the good news! So glad I’m alive to see the day of solar energy dawning. And the extraordinarily coordinated Daft Punk Dancers were mezmerizing. It’s the perfect theme song for this announcement, of course.

The promise of the sun… like the one quote from Abdu’l-Baha about the Bab? (You can find it in Ruhi Book 4 if you like.) :)

Nanosolar… how very interesting.
