We've solved the 20th Century!

Yup the 1900's, a time that the two of us were born into and endured through, was powered by death! The carcases and rotting corpses of animals and plant fibers from millennia ago were compressed and heated to form the black tar of death that we call oil, the carbonized rock called coal, and a vaporous toxic gas. Extracting these substances requires drilling, explosions and now fracking! Using these fuels requires ignition, combustion and burning. The consequence of consuming these toxins is polluted air, oil slicks that smother animals and toxic seepage where no life can grow. Death begets more death.

What of the 21st Century? Can we shed the addiction to death?

Well, the opposite of death is Life! What is the opposite of unrelenting compression in an inky subterranean grave? Everything above ground! Light! Air! Water! Movement! The sun is the source of our light and all living things on our planet, even our planet. We can embrace it's constant radiant power, work with the ebb and flow of the tides and channel the wind to our aid. Powered by life we can heal and restore rather than poison and destroy ourselves and our nature. That is the potential of this Century, to shed the age of death and embrace an era of Life!
