Thomas Edison: For 100% Renewable Energy, Especially Solar

This image and quote above popped onto my email yesterday. Many of you have probably seen it before. But it’s a brilliant one, so even if you have, I think it’s worth another read and share.

Thomas Edison was way ahead of his time, and was clearly a fan of the 100% renewable energy idea (a true possibility), and especially tapping into our insanely abundant supply of solar energy.

Share the image and quote if you like it (and the pages linked above that back it up).
