I was recently in front of a large, friendly group of open-minded people, when I stated my mission...
“I want to help people replace their use of fossil fuels with renewable energy within 10 years or sooner.”
The speaker interrupted me and asked a very simple question: “Why? Why would you want to do that?”
I was surprised, not only by the interruption, but also because in the 35 years I’ve been in the solar industry, no one has ever asked me that question directly.
My reply was inadequate due to my ineptness of thinking fast on my feet, but, after further consideration… you know how it goes… oh I should have said this; I should have said that… here’s my answer:
I want to create a better world, a world that works well (I consider this the best solar energy use):
1) I want to create a world in which all people can bring out the divinity within.
2) There’s something inside of me, from way back that compels me to leave the world a better place than when I got here. (Did my father instill this in me? “If it’s worth doing, it's worth doing right.”)
The area in which I can make a difference is in our use of energy.
Scientific evidence supports my belief that our current use of energy is causing very serious problems.
We each need to address these problems.
If you wait for someone else to address these problems for you, you might not like the solutions or worse; you might not live long enough to solve the problem. YOU need to address these problems because they are YOUR problems. I can help you. I want to help you.
