A new  type of terror has taken the form of arson, bombings and sabotage  in the name of saving the environment and its creatures. These destructive acts have been called ecoterrorism.

At least a hundred major acts of this type have occurred in many countries around the world with damages. Such crimes speed up the deforestation on the use of animals for fun and food.

Surrounding some village forests have been burned down, transformed into a pasture for huge herds of cattle. These people have been burned down the forest for their own interests. But they have derived  many people of oxygen which is the motion or the engine of the life!

These acts are considered terrorist acts because they involve violence intended to change the behavior of individuals and institutions or to alter public policies. Limited recently, crimes in the name of environmental protection had a limited local impact and drew little attention. But targets have grown larger in recent years.

History of Solar Energy

October 21, 2012

Dear Meyer,

Billions of people have lived and died on this earth. Most have left no footprint on the sands of times A few however influenced the caused of history. Your willing and self-sacrificing spirit to teach people how to cook using the sun’s energy, is much appreciated by many people in the world.

Michael Faraday, born in 1791, this English physicist was the inventor of the electric motors and the dynamo. His breakthroughs helped to make electricity more available for human use. From the beginning of time daily cooking  requires fire; but in 1767 French/ Swiss naturalist Horace Benedict de Saussure (1740-1799); Solar cooked fruit in a glass-Covered box  made of three panes, two pane boxes and wool  insulation. His breakthrough helped to make solar cooker available for human use.

17 years after the first earth day observed as million protested pollution ( in 1970).  Barbara kenn and others founded the solar cookers international to spread solar cooking benefit to people…and environments worldwide.

Utrecht Oehler, developed a world-famous solar box cooker; and founded in 1980 a solar energy organization named ULOG- of solar energy promoters to make cooking easy and enjoyable from the big cities to the remote villages. NN, Utrecht Oehler died In 2006, but continuing that work will be an important part of honoring his legacy.

In 1998 , You and others, you founded Solar House Hold Energy (SHE). To address six of eight millennium development goals. SHE, also help the household introduce their consumption of electricity without question the discoveries innovations and organizations of a few men have enabled billions of people to have certain advantages on to enjoy better health and life.

As I am now among the SHE members, I am quite happy as I am hired in this organization. This is something I have been thinking for a long time and now it’s  happening! I guess it happened because of a lot of prayers and because I went into a field, and I was passionate about ( Solar Energy); and finally because it was my destiny. Working in SHE is a dream, it will not be good to wake up!

My life now  has the direction and purpose that I had earned since I was a youth. And most important of all, I now feel that one day I will also contribute to help the humanity….

I can say to you without a hint of doubt that serving in nonprofit organization (like SHE); is without question, the worthy human endeavor. Because working to help the humanity brings happiness. And happiness Comes, not to those who seek it for themselves, but to those who seek it for others. Assisting people in need; this eclipses any rank or position anyone can aspire to reach!

As you were a teenage, your vision and courage to join the solar cooking movement; was a clear testimony of your great desire to see people freed from diseases cause by the smoke, produced by firewood, and freed from the burden of firewood.  Your sacrifice and wish to teach people how to cook using the energy from the sun is worth emulating. I must copy your selflessness and immense contribution to the solar cooker movement. Dear Meyer, your years of work were a golden age of progress in which  you contributed a lot… That was truly worthwhile. Your selfless contribution to the solar cooker movement for the benefit of people will remain as an inspiration to the future generation. As you helped refugee, you deserve the Nansen medal! May God bless you.
Sincerely yours,
Lunda Vincente
