We have this handy fusion reactor in the sky called the sun

  • The sunlight "The sunlight … that strikes Earth's land surface in two hours is equivalent to total human energy use in a year. While much of that sunlight becomes heat, solar energy is also responsible for the energy embodied in wind, hydro, wave, and biomass, each with the potential to be harnessed for human use. Only a small portion of that enormous daily, renewable flux of energy will ever be needed by humanity." – Christopher Flavin, former president of Worldwatch Institute

    The sun provides more energy in one hour than all humanity uses, in all forms, in a single year. Sunlight can provide us with its own resolution to our energy problems. The only transformation required is for humanity to reduce, or end, consumption of stored solar (as fossil fuels) and, in its place, use freely available 'fresh' solar." – David S. Findley, author of Solar Power for Your Home

    "I have no doubt that we will be successful in harnessing the sun's energy. ... If sunbeams were weapons of war, we would have had solar energy centuries ago." ― George Porter.

    "We have this handy fusion reactor in the sky called the sun, you don't have to do anything, it just works. It shows up every day." – Elon Musk, CEO Tesla Motors

  • Sunlight We are star stuff harvesting sunlight." ― Carl Sagan

    "The era of biologically toxic wireless radio frequency (RF) radiation and harmonic electronic power generation from wind and solar systems with their adverse brain modifying effects that can bring on irritable and aggressive behaviors has made it a bad time to be a police officer." ― Steven Magee

  • Blue sky "It would appear that the blue sky is actually produced by the solar wind and solar radiation exciting air molecules to emit light, just like a neon lamp!" ― Steven Magee, Light Forensics

    "We are star stuff harvesting sunlight." ― Carl Sagan

  • Solar energy "Solar is cost effective right now. When you consider the cost to our health from air pollution, solar is just as competitive as any other energy source." – Thomas P. Kay

    When I was commissioning a brand new solar photovoltaic utility site, I came across metal tubes installed into the fuseholders that were marked up as 100 amp fuses on the diagram. Needless to say, it had already gone on fire." ― Steven Magee

    The primary means of energy generation is going to solar. It will at least be a plurality, and probably be a slight majority in the long term." – Elon Musk
