Energy Secretary Steven Chu will Not Deny Love Affair with Solar Panel

February 8th, 2013 | by Rhonda Winter

"I just want everyone to know that my decision not to serve a second term as Energy Secretary has absolutely nothing to do with the allegations made in this week’s edition of the Onion. While I’m not going to confirm or deny the charges specifically, I will say that clean, renewable solar power is a growing source of U.S. jobs and is becoming more and more affordable, so it’s no surprise that lots of Americans are falling in love with solar."

One Bank to Rule Us All

October 5th, 2011 | by Rhonda Winter

Mordor, complete utter evil, and throwing the one ring into the Cracks of Doom immediately came to mind when I saw this image illustrating the rapid consolidation of all our nation's banks. So much power, influence and money in the hands of so very few has created an inhumane Sauron like behemoth banking system whose only cruel desire is for more and more. We the people are being systematically crushed, devoured and regurgitated within the relentless grinding cogs of this corrupt unsustainable machine


San Onofre Nuclear Plant Helps Create International Blackout

September 10th, 2011 | by Rhonda Winter

On September 8th, 2011, just after 3:30 on a very hot summer afternoon, the entire electric power grid from Arizona to Mexico and southern California, went dark.

The automatic closure of the nuclear plant then created an escalating snowball effect throughout the system, causing the largest blackout in the entire history of this region

Solo is a working class kid from Richland, Washington; which is also the home of the decommissioned Hanford Nuclear site, the most contaminated nuclear waste site in the western hemisphere
