  1. May the Sun Shine for the World: Solar Energy to Rival Nuclear Energy option DT Barki www.solarnest.net

  2. Disclaimer • Before starting my presentation, it’s appropriate to present my Disclaimer! • And, before presenting my Disclaimer, I shall remind some of the most regularly seen Disclaimers… • Remember that the content of all Disclaimers are same…. But also remember that they are just ‘bahanas’! They are the ‘legal shields’… Let’s see • First one, from my favorite TV soap, ‘Kyon Ki Saas Bhi Bahi Thi’

  3. Disclaimer The characters in this episode are ficticious and they have no resemblance with the dead or alive - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - blah blah - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -blah blah

  4. Disclaimer by Osama Bin Laden • The characters in this episode are ficticious and they have no resemblance with the dead or alive - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - blah blah - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -blah blah

  5. Mahatma Gandhi’s Observation “Wildlife is decreasing in the forests and they are increasing in the cities” Man has become like wild animals in the midst of the concrete and vehicular jungle

  6. Maxim Gorky’s Assessment The modern technologies have taught man how to fly like bird in the sky, and how to swim like fish in the water. But none of the technologies have taught man how to live like man on the earth

  7. Every Technology Has Taken the Toll of the Earth • And, no scientist has ever provided the details of ‘repercussions’ of the technology he has invented • Alfred Nobel, for example, • Instituted Nobel peace Awards to wash off the the sins of his inventions that left the world under the constant threat of deadly ‘explosives’

  8. Man Used the Technologies Just as a Child is excited to ‘use’ Toys • Automobiles? • Think of the pollution they have rendered • Think of the traffic snarls that the flooding vehicles are bringing in the cities

  9. What about the Mobile Phones? • We were so excited when they entered the world… • Now, we hear that there are deadly ‘repercussions’ on the brain. And, • The beautiful sparrows have gone out of sight…

  10. Everything Man-made has come with Side Effects • Including the medical technologies… • They have their own ill-effects… We do not worry, because • We seem to be enjoying what’s known as the ‘Itch-Scratch’ syndrome!

  11. Fossil Fuels!? • Least said the batter…. • Oil and coal have left their ‘dinosaurs’ carbon-footprints on the earth • No scientist, nor a technologist, nor an engineer warned the world of the ‘repercussions’, in the beginning, of their use • Today, we are saying NO to them because they are going to exhaust and they have already caused ‘something’ called Global Warming… • If it’s ‘inconvenient’ to hear, we can seek the ‘truth’ from the latest Nobel Laureate, Al Gore! • Nuclear energy

  12. What Next?!?!?!?.... • Emmanuel Kant’s thoughts can now be Remembered • “Extract maximum from the earth with minimum pain to it (the earth) and its inhabitants”

  13. Historically, man has been in hurry to use the ‘technologies’ before he learns their side-effects • We have ‘digged’ (read dug) and ‘drilled’ the earth so much …. • That they have become the ‘graveyards’ for the man.

  14. Let’s be wise • Let’s NOT use the Nuclear Energy, now, until we ‘perfect’ the handling of nuclear waste • Let’s not commit the same mistakes of the past, in understanding the deadly repercussions

  15. Remember, nuclear waste is NOT easy to handle • Radioactive elements take 100000 years to lose their life

  16. Nature • “Nature does nothing useless” thus said Aristotle • There’s great wisdom in following the NATURE (but the same cannot be said when you follow the MAN!)

  17. = Electricity from the Sun energy captured within 60 minutes World energy requirement for entire one year

  18. “I would put my money on the Sun and solar energy” – Thomas Edison
