Jungle Talk

Are we hard wired to run a sustainable planet? And are we accountable to the entire world that we live in? For me the Jungle is something made up of so many fascinating elements; a journey of intriguing possibilities. That kind of sounds like "life" on planet-johnson.

Can I travel with a presence that allows my footprint to add value to the world that you live in while "capturing moments" that tell a compelling story? Karma is a belief that all of your actions will have equal reprecussions, affecting you and I. This journey is a search for some balance, a little discovery and hopefully some visual poetry?

This blog will humbly attempt to see my world through the experience of TRAVEL, photos and sincere examination of an experential and visual karma. And I will find a way to incorporate some positive travel experience into that karma with the perspective of a Digital Camera. Photography and writing have become my "love affair" with life on planet-johnson. Hopefully I can share my passions for the best of this crazy world!

Please join in and welcome to the jungle!

Solar on the Cheap, Almost!

 

"The sun has not yet set for all time." Titus Livius

Last night I was debating the necessary advantages of Ontario`s new renewable energy feed-in tarrif as a neccesary first step in saving ourselves from, well ourselves!? You may know my rant, "man-made global warming" solved with man-made global solutions! My debating friends were loud and skeptical and seemed to have no use for higher hydro rates as an acceptable adversary for Global Warming. I guess they`re worried that without cheap coal powered hydro that we won`t be able to afford our next 100 inch flat screen TV. But how much will that TV really cost? How much black carbon can your lungs manage and how many billions in storm damage from "climate change" can we wager on the stuff we want more than we need?

The jury is in and the credible scientific community doesn`t dispute the problem so now it`s fast time to solutions. I wrote previously about Ray Kurzweil`s predictions of 16 years to cheap and abundant solar power but now a Nobel prize winning economist, Paul Krugman, is talking cheap solar. Krugman measures everything that he predicts or recommends and the future is looking pretty clear if we can bear a short term cost for an alternative infrastructure? Here comes the Sun! X
