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.

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.

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

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
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.
