On many Sundays since 1980, people have visited the Johnson Energy Clinic and Cooperative to learn about and contribute to the scientific and environmental ideas that have bloomed there in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on East 53rd Street. It is listed as a museum by Community Board 17. Jerome Johnson, who has been living there for twelve years but has owned it for about fifty, says he is tens of thousand of dollars in debt, stemming from not paying his water bill but that he hasn’t used city water in decades. Now that any Sunday could be the last, as the given date for foreclosure has passed on August 4th, Johnson sticks to his story as his defense. Every sunday groups of people visited the Solar House beginning in the early 80s. As Johnson gives a tour of the “solar house,” as it is sometimes dubbed, or John SUNhouse, he points out not only items that represent self-sufficiency and sustainability but also invaluable possessions that put together the story of how the museum came together and that could potentially be auctioned off with the house. He has framed pictures from the White House, where his earlier product, the Reflectal, a silver umbrella that was used as a lighting tool to take pictures of another Johnson, President Lindon Johnson, in the 1960s: he shows the reject pictures as well. A 1962 book, Popular Science, described the Reflectal as combining “some new technology with the old… exciting photographers from Hollywood to the Congo.” The umbrellas were lined with BoPET, a polyester film commercially known as Mylar, which could be easily replaced with aluminum foil. The Mylar also lines ceilings in the house to reflect heat. There is half of the original library on energy conservation and the like; he later shows a picture of the plethora of government-financed alternative energy journals that existed in the 70s. The mudroom has a dry plant (not thrown away), a propane tank converted into a wood stove and a door of narrow, plastic sheets: a person would come into warmth from the cold in wintertime. There are large (maybe four by four) squares of reused, painted egg cartons for insulation: the squares look like giant computer chips. There is a bumper sticker with the same logo that is now seen in Japanese: "Nuclear Power? No Thanks." There is memorabilia of Johnson’s life such as model geodesic domes from when, in the early 70s, he taught environmental high school seminars in Mamaroneck in Westchester County. There is memorabilia on the walls that feature his work for DOE, newspaper articles about the house and articles about uses of the lighting equipment, such as in the L.A. Watts riots or for photo shoots of Sammy Davis Junior. Recently, Occupy Brooklyn TV of Occupy Public Access TV, produced a short video story of the Solar House (which Johnson shared from a disk), preceding a series of Sundays in the summer when Johnson would bring people in once again. Colia Clark, a Green Party candidate for NY State Senate, promoted the visits and brought a particularly large group one Sunday. "If I lose the house I'm gonna lose history," he says. "The story really is about Carter being a peanut farmer... made his living and his whole life with a different attitude."

Africa's population explosion presents humanity us with a once-in-our-species chance to make our fastest growing area leapfrog the dirty fuels of the past to instead embrace the renewable energy of the future. Subscribe to TDC: https://www.youtube.com/TheDailyConversation/ Video based on this article in Nature: http://www.nature.com/news/can-wind-and-solar-fuel-africa-s-future-1.20907 Video by Bryce Plank and Robin West Music: "Disturbances" by Matt Stewart-Evans: https://soundcloud.com/mattstewartevans https://www.facebook.com/Matthew.Stewart.Evans "Ambitions" by Glimpse: https://soundcloud.com/glimpse_official Script: The total population of Africa is projected to roughly quadruple to about four billion by 2100, driving the total global population past 11 billion. Producing all the energy that all these people will use could obliterate any efforts we’re now making to battle climate change. But Africa’s population explosion is also a tremendous opportunity, because all the power plants where all these people will get all their electricity from haven’t been built yet. This means humanity is now being presented with a once-in-the-lifetime-of-our-species shot to make our planet's fastest growing region leapfrog the dirty fuels of the past, to embrace a future of clean, renewable energy. This is how that optimistic vision of the future can become reality. The residents of Zambia don’t need any reminders that climate change threatens their way of life. The region is suffering its worst drought in 35 years, that’s big trouble for a country that gets nearly all of its power from the force of water passing through three hydroelectric dams. No water means no electricity, and no electricity means blackouts that have frequently brought commerce and productivity to a standstill, gutting the Zambian economy and causing many to lose their jobs. All across Africa, country are confronting the same problem: a constant lack-of-power. Sub Saharan Africa — all 910 million people — consume less electricity than the 4.8 million people of Alabama. Overall, more than half of all Africans have no access to electricity. But this is changing, thanks to the emergence of renewable energy. The cost of building larger-scale solar panel and wind turbine farms continues to plummet, making governments and utilities more likely to choose them over traditional sources like hydro, coal, nuclear or natural gas. As we saw with the water shortage in Zambia — or the nuclear meltdown a few years ago after the earthquake in Japan — power stations of the past are less reliable, more expensive, far worse for our environment, and slower to build. So this seems like a no-brainer, Africa needs to go green, baby! There’re just three problems. One, until now planners have lacked the necessary data to identify where to develop wind and solar projects that are socially equitable, have low-environmental impact, and are most cost-effective. This problem was recently tackled by a groundbreaking study of 21 countries that combined satellite and ground measurements with geospatial data on roads, towns, and existing power lines. It provides the first blueprint for where wind and solar projects should be built to maximize their effectiveness. The study also revealed Africa’s eye-opening, untapped potential for renewable energy generation. There are an estimated 550 million megawatts of potential solar and wind power spread across the continent, just waiting to be harvested. That’s 3,700 times as much electricity as Africa currently consumes. That’s so much extra energy, that Africa should aim to be powered 100% by renewables by 2050. It’s even possible for Africa to become a clean energy exporting superpower by sending its abundant surpluses of electricity to Europe; the Middle East, India and the rest of Asia; and even the Americas. Of course, this is dependent on overcoming the second major challenge: the continent’s completely inadequate power grid. Modernizing it to connect clean power stations with cities all over Africa will be a long-term megaproject costing tens of billions of dollars in the coming decades. For fast-growing urban areas — like Lagos, Cairo, Kinshasa, Mogadishu, and Johannesburg — uninterrupted electricity is critical for the emerging industries that will fuel economic growth and provide jobs for billions. On the other hand, most Africans currently live in small villages and towns, so their energy needs can be met by inexpensive solar and wind turbine systems that are located on-site, but are disconnected from the main grid. The challenge will be connecting cities — where more and more people are moving — with the mega-power stations that will often be built far away, in geographical sweet spots to maximize the amount of harvestable solar rays and wind gusts.
