Here is an example of a 14-year-old who saw renewable energy in a book from the library and would not be denied:

wind_africa01wind_africa02This young man William Kamkwamba in Wimbe, Malawi has found his own way of harvesting electric power from the wind.  He can run lights and small appliances with his apparatus.  Even though his wind turbine is fragile, it accomplishes his goal of having a home-built wind power system.

Actually, what he did and the book he wrote about it has gained worldwide attention.  Not content with just a small measure of success, he is moving on to greater achievements.  Read more about William on his website. africa_sunset1

    Some interesting and intelligent content you have here on your site. I have several wordpress sites and like your theme. I do notice that you are not monetising your traffic to its maximum which is what I used to do until someone pointed out to me that you can actually earn yourself some decent amounts to help pay your hosting and domain fees etc. Looking at your Alexa rankings I can see you obtain some decent traffic which for very little work could help you out. Hope that helps you out – we fellow wordpress bloggers have to stick together!

  14. Have you ever thought about the processes through which a book is passed before coming into your hands? It is not a dull procedure to write down a book as well publishing it. Writing in itself is a hard job. So why not discuss the obstacles and hurdles in the way of writing a book? Why don’t we talk about getting help from book writing software?

    I’ve been into environmentalism for 20 some odd years now. I’ve always wanted to find a way to reduce our usage of the electrical grid, which I’ve done to some extent with a few solar panels, but I can’t really afford anything that would power the whole home. I’ve been looking into building a cheap magnetic generator (here is one example I found, but I’ve been wondering how hard it would be. Have you had any experice with this or others?
