 Commercial Nuclear Power: Assuring Safety for the Future
coverAmazing Sun Fun Activities by Michael J. Daley, Buckley Smith (Illustrator).  

What good are a used pizza box, an old takeout salad container, a drained soda cup, or an empty chip package? For fast-food-loving, environmentally-conscious kids, they must might be the key to viable energy alternatives and the reduction of post-consumer waste. Amazing Solar Science Activities is more than an activity book; it's a practical, hands-on introduction to the concepts of renewable energy, emphasizing the limitations of fossil fuel as compared with the limitless availability of light from the sun. Using recycled and recyclable materials and an energy source that's free for the taking, the sun, kids can create: a pizza-box oven that cooks s'mores, tacos, and pizza; a Greek-style dog house with porticos out of a doughnut box and coffee creamer pillars; a deli container greenhouse to grow plants; a working solar water heater out of a soda can, some black paint, and a thermometer.

Alternative Energy Institute
The Alternative Energy Institute (AEI) was formed in 1977 at West Texas State University, Texas, USA, as an outgrowth of wind energy research begun in 1970. AEI's primary emphasis has been placed on wind energy, though certain research and education are also on solar energy.

Scientific Solution for Radioactive Waste

Wladimir Guglinski

Site in English and Portuguese

Since the introduction of nuclear power plants, the industry has produced radioactive waste that keeps emitting radioactivity for many years. With the building of new nuclear plants, the accumulation of radioactive waste continues to grow, which today has the order of 300 tons per day worldwide.

Guglinski claims that there is a scientific solution able to eliminate the radioactivity of the waste, and therefore is capable of eliminating the accumulation of the radioactive waste as well as the stockpile already produced.  However this scientific solution has never been tested by scientists.

This site has 3 objectives:

1) To show to the visitor the motives behind why this scientific solution has never been tested. 

2) To inform to visitor that an ecological Non-Governmental Organization in Brazil is now undertaking an effort in order to test the scientific solution in one of Brazil's nuclear power plants. And to show how, if the tests produce positive results, the solution could be implemented worldwide.

3) To invite ecologists to join this enterprise in order to eliminate the radioactive waste threatening our planet.

Renewable Energy-solar, hydro, wind, geothermal, biomass
Welcome to the first version of CREST's online renewable energy education system! Based on an interactive kiosk also developed by CREST, this system uses words and pictures to teach the theoretical and practical basics of renewable energy. It takes an introductory approach, not getting so complex as to baffle the first time viewer.

Solar Development Cooperative
The Solar Development Cooperative was founded in 1992 to assure timely mainstream deployment of quality building-integrated photovoltaics [BI-PV] supported by a reliable service industry in the United States and global marketplace. 

The significant discoveries and accomplishments are: (1) ECO TECHE featuring Science Science City and the Solar Solution for Kansas City's Union Station [redevelopment plan first established in 1992 with final amendments in 1995], (2) being appointed exclusive global marketing agent for the Solar-Voltaic Dome(TM) in 1993, (3) Advent of the Headrick Solar-Voltaic Dome(TM) Power Station Marketing Plan, (4) 100 Headrick Solar-Voltaic Dome(TM) Power Stations By 2000 Program, (5) Millennium Dome(R) Building-integrated Photovoltaics Manufacturing Museum (6) PV for your TV(TM) Healthfood for Our Electronic Pets, E! lectriCity(R) Studios and a variety of other marketing plans for mainstream deployment of quality solar electric building materials. See our Works In Progress page for access to numerous photographs of projects completed in the photovoltaic industry since the historic construction of the Solarex Corporation headquarters in Frederick, Maryland in 1982. In 1984, 300 kilowatt peak PV roof installed for the Intercultural Center at Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Before the project was completed, Enron/Amoco forced the founders of the Solarex Corporation Dr. Lindmeyer and Dr. Varadi out of business. This icon of modern architecture must be designated a national landmark, provided an historic buildings plaque to educate the public and officially included in official Washington, DC tours. 

To obviate the antitrust problems in the photovoltaics industry now dominated by Enron, Amoco and British Petroleum, we have submitted Motion to Compel Discovery and Evidentiary Hearing for the Antitrust Abuses ... Over 70% of the photovoltaic modules approved for California's 50% buydown program are American technology that is now owned by foreign interests as a result of Enron/Amoco's abusive takeovers and patent enfringement litigation used to put other PV manufacturers out of business from 1984 to 1999. SDC asked the Commission to initiate an investigation regarding these antitrust abuses in our Opening Comments filed March 17, 1999. Less than a month later the two primary companies of concern the ARCO Corporation and the Solarex Corporation were taken over by BP/AMOCO on April 2 and April 6, 1999.
