This weekend's Energy Fair is a ...

The amount of solar energy intercepted by the Earth every minute is greater than the amount of energy the world uses in fossil fuels each year. For me the sun represents many things as well, but this time of year it symbolizes the most inspiring thing I like to do with the sun which is to solar cook. Solar cooking has ...
