Thoughts - musings on solar panels and renewable energy

This page is for thoughts and ideas about solar and the environment in general.  I'm passionate about solar and think and read about it daily.  This will be a space for these thoughts.

Larsen C Ice Shelf Departing Antartica Soon

Matt Helms

The Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antartica is breaking away from the mainland and a massive rift has formed in the shelf.  This isn't just a small iceberg that is breaking off, but rather a piece of ice about the size of the state of Delaware.  The crack alone is 70 miles long, 300 feet wide and about a third of a mile deep.  Click on the image below to learn more from NASA.

So if you like the idea of all that ice staying in Antartica and not melting and ending up in downtown Miami (or any other coastal city in the world), think about installing some solar panels on your roof and get your electricity from the sun and not coal.  Its a small step in the right direction, but every little bit helps.
