We need more water skiing squirrels. This is a good thing! Go Twiggy! (Hope he can swim.. could swim that is)
Los Angeles Times originally shared:
 
From the archives (1982): Robert Lachman's photo of Twiggy, the water-skiing squirrel who dazzled the crowds at the Anaheim Boat Show.

According our April 23, 1982 story, it took Chuck and Lou Ann Best about four months to teach the Florida gray squirrel the water-skiing trick. Twiggy was rescued by a friend of the Bests after she fell from a nest during a hurricane.

It might be simple economics that makes our coal industry redundant.

"Martin Green, the executive research director of the world-leading Photovoltaic Centre of Excellence at UNSW, who says solar PV is likely to fall below the cost of coal in Australia (wholesale grid parity) before the end of the decade. He points out that most studies, and much of government modeling, are based around solar PV having a cost of $3.50 a watt. He says it is already down to just over $1/watt and will likely halve again to 50c/watt by 2020."

This is nuts. The establishment are afraid. What a great letter. Reminds me of Reagan as California governor.

Australian solar technology still exists despite the dark side of the force. 3rd generation solar that mimicks photosynthesis. To be applied to steel roofing and glass by Tata and Pilkington. Silicon free, cheap to make in terms of energy and dollars.
