2015, The Hottest Year on Record

Two of my neighbors now have installed solar panels on their roofs.

I’d LOVE to install solar panels.  It’s a long-held dream.

Yes, even up here in Maine, solar panels will work.

What’s stopping me is that my roof is about 14 or 15 years old, and I don’t want to install solar panels and then have to take them down for a new roof.

Apparently one can get a loan that is a “wash” with current energy bills.

But, maybe, this year I’ll start the conversation with a local solar company with a great reputation.

Meanwhile, here’s an article discussing the heat generated this past year.  There are some great statistics and good graphs AND a link to a “quick question and answer” document that’s interesting.  (Admission:  I don’t agree with the section on meat eating being a major cause of global warming.  The CAFO lots are a problem, but we should be grass-feeding cows anyway.  Meat is a major source of fat soluble vitamins and amino acids in forms that our body accepts.)
