«The dangerous is not to fly a solar plane without a drop of fuel around the world, but the belief in our present-day energy supply.»
 
Bertrand Piccard, media conference 5.11.2007, Bundesrat Pascal Couchepin öffnet Türe zum Solarzeitalter

Solar Impulse

The solar airplane «Solar Impulse 2» of Swiss explorers Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg attempting the first round the world solar flight has broken all distance and duration world records for solar aviation. Already on the 4th day of the in total about 118 hours and 8200 km long solar flight of the 8th leg from Japan to Hawaii, the pilot André Borschberg also has broken the record for the longest solo flight ever. By remaining airborne above the Pacific Ocean 5 consecutive days and nights, producing its own power exclusively with solar energy, «Solar Impulse 2» has proven that Bertrand Piccard's vision of reaching unlimited endurance without fuel was not a dream.1)

«Can you imagine that a solar powered airplane without fuel can now fly longer than a jet plane!», said Bertrand Piccard, initiator, chairman and pilot of Solar Impulse. «This is a clear message that clean technologies can achieve impossible goals!»1)

The main goal of this adventure is to collect millions of voices for the initiative «Future is Clean». This initiative is aiming to encourage the governments to replace old polluting devices and systems by new clean technology, in order to save energy and natural resources in a profitable way, creating jobs and economic growth while protecting the environment.2)

The achievements by «Solar Impulse 2» teach us two lessons:

  • Yes, we can and must reduce the production of CO2 significantly!

  • Yes, we can and must stop the production of radioactivity completely!

The first lesson will hopefully be transformed into global action at the upcoming UN Climate Conference (COP21) in Paris to reduce global warming.3)

The second lesson, often still overlooked by some countries and organisations, will hopefully be taken just as well into account at the UN Climate Conference (COP21) and put into global action as outlined and explained in the UN-Resolution «Climate Change by Radioactivity» suggested on SolarPeace.org.4)

  • Today all needed solutions and technologies to harness the sun and the wind are fully available and very efficient.

  • As long as a single roof tile still sweats useless in the sun, we haven't used the full potential.

Each of us can act, not only by signing the «Future is Clean» initiative, but also by acting in private life as demonstrated for example in the German cinema movie «Leben mit der Energiewende - Selber machen» (Life with energy transition: Do it yourself).5)


 

Die Energiewende macht uns zu Gewinnern

Nach der Tschernobyl-Katastrophe vor 30 Jahren hatten viele deutsche Atomkraft-Gegner gehofft, dass der Ausstieg aus der Nuklearenergie rasch kommen werde. Aber es bedurfte erst des nächsten großen Unfalls in Fukushima – damit vor jetzt fünf Jahren Deutschland, die Schweiz und die Niederlande den Atomausstieg beschlossen. Doch inzwischen ist das globale Ende der Atomkraft absehbar. ...

Das Klimaziel von Paris ist ein Triumph des Realismus

Nach Erstens, so erklärt jetzt ein Wissenschaftler-Team, ist es notwendig, den globalen Temperaturanstieg unter 2 Grad Celsius zu halten, weil bei ungebremstem Klimawandel enorme Risiken auf die Menschheit zukommen. Zum ersten Mal zeigen die Forscher in einem Diagramm, bei welcher Erwärmung welche Elemente des Erdsystems kippen könnten. Zweitens ist die Umsetzung des Pariser Klimaziels machbar, durch eine technologische Explosion der erneuerbaren Energiesysteme und anderer Innovationen, und die Implosion der fossilen Industrien. Drittens ist das Klimaziel einfach genug, um weltweit politisch etwas in Bewegung zu bringen. ...

World Alliance for Clean Technologies, Marrakech, 11 November 2016 – «The Solar Impulse Foundation launched the World Alliance for Clean Technologies today during COP22, as a legacy to the first ever solar flight around the world. »

 

25.7.2016  -  The solar airplane «Solar Impulse 2» flies all around the world  ...  without using a single drop of fossil fuel, without producing any radioactivity or CO2

The vision is reality.  There are no excuses anymore:  We can and must without any further delay reduce the production of CO2 significantly and stop the production of radioactivity completely! 

It's the chance and responsibility of our generation to transform the global energy supply towards 100% renewable energies now!  This is also economically sensitive, as sun and wind don't send an invoice (see e.g. Sonnenseite.com).

 

Congratulations to Bertrand and André with all team!

 Gorbachev: Nuclear weapon-free world is not a utopia, but a necessity

An other truly solar impulse:  «... I am deeply convinced that a nuclear weapon-free world is not a utopia, but an imperative necessity. We need to constantly remind world leaders of this goal and of their commitment. ...
Politicians who think that problems or disputes can be resolved through the use of military force (even as a “last resort”) must be rejected by society; they must leave the stage. ...
Nuclear weapons must be prohibited. Even more: War must be prohibited. ...»

Please tell others ...

 

P.S. About 3000 persons, politicians and decision makers world-wide receive the SolarPeace-Information. All emails and letters are created with so-called 'Natural Power', clean electricity generated with 100% renewable energies (sun, water, wind, biomass or geothermal). Increasing demand creates investments and the necessary supply. Each order for 'Natural Power' supports the build-up of a future-oriented energy supply and is an effective contribution to climate protection.

Please pass these information over to other interested people.

Cordial thanks!

 

Congratulations, Aloha and all the best to André and Bertrand with all team!
