We are at a great time in this world. While we definitely have the ability to pollute and ruin our world, we also have the ability to use our natural resources to our advantage and start creating a better world. There are so many smart people who are creating technology that will help us do that.
Speaking of that, my friend sent me a link to a video, and I have to share it with you!
My Favorite Points From The Video
- Clean energy. (Obviously this is the number one reason to do this. Wouldn’t it be great to finally take action on making this world a healthier place for future generations to enjoy.)
- No more ice or snow on roads. (For me, in Canada, this would be a god send. I would be able to go to my favorite far off places without worrying about accidents, and I wouldn’t have to worry about whether or not my husband was going to make it home after work during a snow storm. Plus, my miniature Pinscher would be able to go for a walk in the winter!)
- No salt corroding your car.
- Ride bike or motorcycle all year round.
- Roads never have to be repainted.
- A highway that lights up. (Seriously, how cool would that be? Plus, it would help bad drivers have an easy time staying in between the lines. Just saying!)
- Improved visibility on roads. (Again, this is just a cool things that will benefit not only bad drivers, but everyone else as well)
- Making your own sport court. (One court that can convert into whatever you want? That is freaking awesome!)
- Pressure sensitive for when animals crossing. (I love this. I’m so tired of seeing dead animals on the side of the road. We are invading their space, and they deserve to be protected on the roads.)
- Thousands of jobs waiting for us. (How great would be to work at a place that supports the sustainability of our world…not to mention all the other benefits? That would be a job worth getting out of bed for!)
- Lower energy bill. (This is always a good thing!)
In my opinion, you need to share this with everyone you know and get people excited about this! If you are not excited about this, then why not?
If it sounds like a lot of effort (which is the only reason I could guess you wouldn’t be excited), then remember that you don’t have to worry about the details.
You don’t have to worry about the hiccups or road-bumps that will need to be overcome in order to implement this. Other people will take care of that if it gets implemented on a wide scale. All you have to do is get excited about it, share the concept, and give your positive vote wherever you can so that this actually happens.
Let’s use the sunlight for something positive. It’s there! We can do it! We just have to keep this project moving forward. Once it gets started, there will be no stopping it!
Meet The Couple Behind The Solar Roadways: Scott And Julie
Click here to check out the indiegogo campaign. You will want to go there because there are a bunch of ‘Did you know?’ facts that will leave you saying YES! This really could happen sooner than we think.
Or you can check out the frequently asked questions about the solar roadways here.
Of course, funding may be done by the time you see this article, but I think the page gets left on even after the whole funding project is done. Besides, you can help spread the word about it to keep awareness and enthusiasm high around it.
Seriously, this is SOlar FREAKIN’ AWESOME to me. I’m in a much better mood just for running into this, and I hope you are too.
