Dear Friends & Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

(Please click on red link, below)

I’d like to share with you this  footage of the rising sun of Gold Coast, Australia, on an October day, in 2012, at a 60x speed.


It is with this kind of hope, optimism, and energy that we here at Sun Is The Future of http://www.sunisthefuture.net gather and share information and knowledge on solar energy and sustainability.

If you’re interested in viewing  this sunrise at different speeds:

1.   7 x speed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OnhtwdgwMQs
2.   real time speed at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHl68wgtkZ8

Random Sunny Encounter of John Farnhams Brigade’s “You’re The Voice” in Royal Botanic Garden of Melbourne

Share

Dear Friends, Visitors/Viewers/Readers,

(Please click onred linksbelow)

During our quest for more on solar energy in 2012, on October 6, we happened to be in Melbourne, Australia. On the Saturday morning, we strolled through the lovely Royal Botanic Garden of Melbourne, taking in as much of the sight, scent, and sound of its beauty, downloading into our memory bank. Suddenly, we came upon this group of boisterous young lads, obviously in blond wigs and black robes, serenading random joggers/walkers passing their way. At some point in time, one of their members pointed toward us and started to sing at us, literally, sing at us with these refrains:

You’re the voice, try and understand it
Make the noise and make it clear, oh, woah
We’re not gonna sit in silence
We’re not gonna live with fear, oh, woah

After I’ve posted the video clip on sunisthefuture Youtube Channel, I found out this is actually a group of John Farnham Brigades/Impersonators singing out the refrain of “You’re The Voice”.  So, please allow me to share this very random but sunny encounter of John Farnham’s Brigades’ “You’re The Voice” in Royal Botanic Garden of Melbourne, Australia, below:


John Farhnahm turned out to be a famous Australian singer who had popularized the song “You’re The Voice“.  Once I’ve looked over its lyrics, I am amazed at how much it resonates with our time and what Sun Is The Future is trying to do…. aren’t we all someone’s daughter or son, living at a transitional time in history, trying not to sit in silence but to spread/share the message of hope and optimism of solar energy, the solution that will hopefully be able to free us from wars among nations…. lyrics of  “You’re The Voice”, below:

 

We have the chance to turn the pages over
We can write what we want to write
We gotta make ends meet, before we get much older

We’re all someone’s daughter
We’re all someone’s son
How long can we look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun?

You’re the voice, try and understand it
Make the noise and make it clear, oh, woah
We’re not gonna sit in silence
We’re not gonna live with fear, oh, woah

This time, we know we all can stand together
With the power to be powerful
Believing we can make it better

Ooh, we’re all someone’s daughter
We’re all someone’s son, oh
Give a look at each other
Down the barrel of a gun

You’re the voice, try and understand it
Make the noise and make it clear, oh, woah
We’re not gonna sit in silence

Hope you’ve enjoyed this post.  Hope you will also do what you can in making your voice clearly heard in spreading the message of peace, hope, and optimism in solar energy.

Hope For Solar Future Via JA Solar & China-U.S. Cooperation(Follow-Up On Anti-Dumping Duties For Chinese Solar Modules: Its Connection From The Past To The Future)

Share

Dear Readers,

(Please click onred linksbelow)

There has been much discussions regarding the anti-dumping duties for Chinese solar modules.  My post of May 21, 2012, simply stated the basic facts and definitions to help readers to improve understanding of what anti-dumping duties mean.  What I would like to invite you all to think about now  is to ask your/ourselves if the human society is capable of learning from history and prescribing the necessary preventive medicine for undesirable events (such as war) from occurring.

If I were a humanoid from the future,  studying modern human history, based on all observable events and historical records, I would have arrived at some very definitive patterns and precursors for “modern human war“:

credit over-extension—>economic recession—>tariffs—>retaliatory tariffs—>trade war—>decreased international trade—>increased unemployment—>economic depression—>WAR   (repeat each generation, about 60 year cycle or Kondratiev wave/cycle or however long it’d take human memory to fade)

This was the pattern observed that led to  WW II and its sequential pattern starts to show up again.  The difference is that we now have much more information, gathered data, and intelligent decision makers…so do you think we will be able to avert the threat of seemingly inevitable war ?

Certainly, the tariffs have increased trade tensions between U.S. and China, as Beijing considers whether to retaliate by slapping its own duties on U.S.-made polysilicon raw material for solar cells.  Last Friday, Beijing filed a complaint with the World Trade Organization against import duties on U.S. products including solar panels that China claims are unfairly priced or subsidized.

Instead of simply repeating the pattern of tariffs leading to retaliatory tariffs–>trade war–>decreased international trade–>–>–>WAR, JA Solar Holdings Co., a Shanghai-based business is currently leading the pack by having already purchased manufacturing equipment at auction in CA, and searching in Western states (U.S.) for potential plant locations.  This would definitely help to avoid the anti-dumping duties.  At the moment, Jonathan Pickering, the company’s president for America, told the Oregonian that managers are expected to reach a decision within few months.  Pickering also indicated that JA Solar is attracted by the growing market size of U.S. market, plus the fact that a U.S. factory would enable the company to meet domestic content requirements imposed by military, universities, schools, and hospitals.  Even though Pickering did not feel that duties would be the sole driving force for the company’s factory decision, he agrees that the duties would drive up prices, cutting solar panel sales,  throwing U.S. installers out of work, and slowing the market growth.  Below is a clip of JA Solar:


The manufacturing equipment bought by JA Solar (enough to outfit a small factory with about 75 megawatts of production), originally belonged to Calisolar Inc. Calisolar fired 80 Sunnyvale, CA workers in September and backed out of a $275 million government loan guarantee and reinvented itself in Mississippi, where local governments is providing $94 million in incentives.  Renamed Silicor Materials Inc., the company is building a plant to supply raw materials to China’s Suntech Power Holdings Co.

It is hopeful that all solar companies within both China and U.S. will find ways of cooperating with one another, optimizing their respective local incentives and subsidies while fulfilling the needs of international trade.  After all, the most sunny disposition is keeping one’s eyes on increasing the profit, creating jobs, providing the clean and renewable energy without completing the pattern/cycle of war. Let’s also pass along the sun, pass along the energy, and embrace the dream of gathering the love and hope of all people to harness the sun, with its warmth and light.

~have a bright and sunny day~
