Positive Energy Technology
Solar Action Alliance is a group of environmentalists who want to spread the word about the most clean, reliable, and abundant source of renewable energy: the sun.
Besides remediation and detoxification, we need alternative green energy sources. Since microbes may play a role, I have included any interesting links I have found in this category. The goal is to burn less carbon-based fuel, while simultaneously cleaning up carbon pollution we have already caused.
Electrofuels fuels from the process of bioremediation studied
Thin film solar cell UCLA engineering professor Yang Yang, postdoctoral researcher Gang Li, and graduate student Vishal Shrotriya describe innovative polymer solar cell. The polycrystalline solar cell, or thin-film solar cell (TFSC), is also called a thin-film photovoltaic cell (TFPV).

Britain turning food waste into fuel "British Gas and Bio Group, a company working on bioremediation technology, announced they've signed a deal to build a facility in Stockport, England, to convert commercial food waste into gas."

Invention of the Optical Battery announced April 2011
University of Michigan Professor Stephen Rand, and doctoral student W.M. Fisher have announced what they call an "optical battery." They say it will cost less and use fewer precious natural resources. Dr. Rand is a professor in the departments of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Physics and Applied Physics. They unveiled their research in the Journal of Applied Physics (see original http://jap.aip.org/).
We need a new, positive, green source of energy. Then we can start to concentrate on environmental remediation, restoration, and detoxification. This is the first positive news we have received on positive energy. The rest of the page is devoted to bioremediation products and research. Our motto is "long live the friendly bacteria." Bookmark this page for news about the optical battery and other positive energy sources.

Horsepower to Microbe Power A new report states that: "a type of bacteria called Shewanella Oneidensis that live in oxygen-free environments may be an exciting new power source for everything from lights to mobile phone chargers." The microbes have tiny wires penetrating their walls that emit electricity. The article concludes: "Imagine bragging to your friends about how many million microbes you have under the hood . . . instead of just a few hundred horsepower."
Click here to read the original article. [Caution: The article says, "The hope is that the built in 'electrical outlet' the bacteria have can be re-designed slightly so the electrical charges can be used to clean up oil spills and other pollutants." Does this mean turning them into GMOs [genetically modified organisms]? Doesn't sound good, but I will investigate further.]
Another creative entry to this category is the "solar concentrator" window meant for commercial buildings. They would conserve energy, as well as generate energy. Google "solar concentrator" for more information.
The New York Times Healthy Microbe Cultures, By Gina Kolata, June 13, 2012:
For years, bacteria have had a bad name. They are the cause of infections, of diseases. They are something to be scrubbed away, things to be avoided.
A Vision for Mother Earth (click here if you want to align with this vision)
We envision our Mother Earth in her Highest Light, where all the waters, everywhere, are pure and clean; where all the plants and animals who dwell in and around the water are living their lives happily, healthfully, and joyfully; where everyone who depends upon the water for their leisure or their livelihood is grateful for the abundance they enjoy;
where the skies are true blue and clear; where all manmade clouds are a thing of the past; and where every breath we breathe is sweet, vibrant, and life supporting;
where the land - everywhere we go, everywhere we look - is pristine and pulsating with life; where the trees are radiant and beautiful, the farms and gardens flourishing with fruits and foods of all kinds in all places; where the animals, both wild and domestic, are respected and guaranteed to live their days in peace and safety;
where the people are honoring and caring for one another in every land, in every home, in every way;
and where Mother Earth, herself, is tended to like a garden; where her beauty is celebrated always; where her beaches, her deserts, her pastures and prairies, her meadows and mountaintops are sacred to all who walk there; and where her Highest Good is considered and honored.
And, finally, we see Mother Earth as a living entity, evolving on her own and joyous on her journey as she becomes a brighter star. We see a Mother Earth who is proud of us, proud of all of us, because we have done what we came here to do.
