Green Vision for Southern California

The converging technologies of the Internet, digital devices and electricity from solar energy are creating a "Wireless World" and a "Placeless Society." They are profoundly changing the way we live in this global village. You can be anywhere, anyplace, anytime and conduct international business through E-commerce; attend distance learning classes; telecommute jobs through out-sourcing or in-sourcing; or meet friends and watch the latest Hollywood movie at a cyber-cafe in Nepal.

Just as Marco Polo opened the "Silk Road to China," we are opening the "Solar (Internet) Superhighway" to global villages. Unlike our cities that were built around the automobiles and fossil energy that have created an unsustainable lifestyle, we must build our communities on solar energy and hydrogen in order to create a just and sustainable future.

Will we have the vision and leadership in building a green renewable economy and start deconstructing the gray fossil economy in the 21st century? Will our students be prepared to be part of the green revolution and not be left behind as they were in the Dotcom Revolution? Can we create strategic alliances with Developing countries to help them leapfrog into the solar hydrogen economy?

Solar Peak Load Demand Solution for California

Nextek PV Direct Coupled Lighting System

The California Energy Action Plan warns that the threat of a summer blackout and rolling browning is highly possible due to our growing population and electricity demand. The rate of increase of electricity is growing by 2 percent or 1,500 megawatts per year. The summer peak demand increases by over 40 percent due to air conditioning and lighting that may trigger blackouts and rolling brownouts during the coming summer. The solar and energy efficiency solutions to meet the summer peak demand will be presented by panelists.

California Solar Hydrogen Highway: Solution for the 710 Freeway Diesel Truck Pollution Problem?

Governor Schwarzenegger has established a Hydrogen Highway Initiative to move California into the hydrogen economy to clean our air and cure us from our addiction to Middle East oil. The 710 Freeway Corridor is one of the most polluted areas in the Basin caused by large diesel trucks transporting cargoes from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Studies have documented that the emissions from diesel trucks are the cause of asthma and cancer among the children and elderly. What role will the Governor's Hydrogen Initiative play in finding a solution to this complex problem?

Preparing for the Million Solar Roofs Initiative: Integrated Building Design

Governor Schwarzenegger has signed the Million Solar Roofs Initiative that establishes a goal of placing 1,000,000 solar energy systems on new and existing residential and commercial customer sites or its generation capacity equivalent of 3,000 megawatts, establishing a self-sufficient solar industry in 10 years, and placing solar energy systems on 50% of new home developments in 13 years. The bill would establish the Million Solar Roofs Initiative Trust Fund and would continuously appropriate moneys deposited into the fund to the Energy Commission for purposes of carrying out the Million Solar Roofs Initiative. The panelists will present their ideas on incorporating solar energy systems in reducing our electricity demand through passive and active solar design.

Location: Parking Lot

Clean Water & Solar Water Pumping Technology

Clean drinking water is a critical problem worldwide. Polluted and poisonous water is believed to cause 25-30 million deaths each year, about 60% of them children under the age of five. Untreated and reused water in many developing countries carries a multitude of germs, causing about 80% of their diseases. Typhus cholera, and dysentery are associated with contaminated water, which causes severe diarrhea, and cause 24,000 childhood deaths each day. In addition to the fatal consequences of polluted water are the many diseases that cause severe losses in productivity, economic instability, and poor quality of life. The Audubon Center uses 65% less water than a comparable building of its size. The wastewater stream is treated on site; there is no sewer line. The demonstration will explain how the wastewater is treated and how solar energy can play a role in pumping the water for irrigation and purifying the water through pasteurization and distillation.

Future of Lighting Exhibit: Laser and LED's


The word "LASER" is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation and for years has symbolized the future and our constant need and desire to improve our surroundings and our methodologies, particularly in the sciences. Today, the laser is not only a supremely important part of scientific, military, medical, and industrial research, but is also a part of your everyday life. Following are a few ways that lasers coincide with your life which you will instantly recognize:

  • A laser is used to transmit, receive, and read data such as the music on your CDs and the sound and video on your DVDs.
  • A laser is used to read the product code and activate pricing when you check out your groceries.
  • A laser is used in many computer printers.
  • Lasers are used to remove tattoos, remove body hair and to alleviate other skin conditions
  • Lasers are now commonly used to perform corrective surgery on your eyes and in many other areas of medicine.
  • Laser levels are commonplace now to create a perfectly level line in construction or to hang your favorite picture evenly.
  • Lasers are used as guidance for equipment that cuts your carpets and paints your cars.
  • Lasers are also extremely important in military guidance systems, medical research on previously inoperable conditions, industrial development of more efficient equipment, the scientific study of light and how to understand and control it, and even for more exciting entertainment. Millions of people have seen lasers used in colorful and exciting manners at music concerts, in planetarium shows, and in theme park shows and exhibits.

The original laser used a synthetic ruby as its lasing medium. Over the years, science has found that many other media can be used more efficiently for different aspects of scientific, medical, and industrial inquiry.

  • Solid-state lasers have lasing material distributed in a solid matrix (such as the ruby or neodymium:yttrium-aluminum garnet "Yag" lasers). The neodymium-Yag laser emits infrared light at 1,064 nanometers (nm). A nanometer is 1x10-9 meters.
  • Gas lasers (helium and helium-neon, HeNe, are the most common gas lasers) have a primary output of visible red light. CO2 lasers emit energy in the far-infrared, and are used for cutting hard materials. Argon, Krypton, White Light (mixed gas) lasers are the most commonly used entertainment lasers.
  • Excimer lasers (the name is derived from the terms excited and dimers ) use reactive gases, such as chlorine and fluorine, mixed with inert gases such as argon, krypton or xenon. When electrically stimulated, a pseudo molecule (dimer) is produced. When lased, the dimer produces light in the ultraviolet range.
  • Dye lasers use complex organic dyes, such as rhodamine 6G, in liquid solution or suspension as lasing media. They are tunable over a broad range of wavelengths.
  • Semiconductor lasers, sometimes called diode lasers, are not solid-state lasers. These electronic devices are generally very small and use low power. They may be built into larger arrays, such as the writing source in some laser printers or CD players.

You can safely bet that lasers will be used to benefit your everyday life even more as research progresses.

A Taste of the Mayan Rainforest: Saving the Rainforest, a Healthy Cup of Coffee at a Time!

What we eat and drink can have a devastating impact on our global environment. Drinking a cup of coffee that is organic, bird-friendly, and/or fair-traded contributes to the saving of the rainforest. Coffee is the second most traded commodity after oil; it is the second most consumed beverage in North America after water; and it is the second most destructive force to the rainforest after cattle ranching. The Mayan Rainforest in Central America is one of the most fragile biospheres in the world. The rainforest is home to a rich collection of birds, butterflies and other wild creatures. The use of fuel wood to dry coffee and pesticides to grow Arabica coffee is having a devastating impact on the rainforest. Solar Drying System developed by Mesoamerican Development and SUN Utility Network, Inc. is part of the solution to save the rainforest. Like buying "Dolphin Free Tuna," coffee consumers will determine the future of the rainforest.

Once coffee is roasted, it oxides its aroma in 72 hours and becomes stale and rancid in 7 days, according to Michael Sivetz, coffee guru. The Coffee Demonstration will show you the Next Coffee Wave to hit California: Roast, mill, and brew of rainforest friendly coffee.

Solar Kitchen and Cooking Technology

The use of fuel wood and charcoal for cooking in Third World countries has had a devastating impact on the environment. It has denuded the rainforest in Haiti and many parts of Asia and Africa. The ultimate modern solar kitchen and cooking applications are demonstrated at the Audubon Center kitchen. Two refrigerators, microwave ovens, electric coffee pots, etc. are powered with solar energy. Hot water is provided by a solar thermal system on the roof over the kitchen. The demonstration will feature the use of a solar oven to bake pizza and hotdogs

Green Commuter Solar Electric Bicycle Program

The Solar Electric Bicycle Green Commuter Program was started in the City of Palm Springs and at California State University, San Luis Obispo as part of a clean air, congestion management, parking reduction, energy independence, and green commuting strategy. The Green Commuter program was targeted for the low and moderate-income workers who couldn't afford to buy a car to get to work. Bicycle lanes were established to insure safety for the Green Commuters.

With the rising cost of gasoline, the electric bicycle transportation is a viable alternative for short distance commuting. WaveCrest is sponsoring the Green Commuter Electric Bicycle Program for Earth Day. Students and adults will be able to test-drive the electric bicycles that can be charged with solar energy.

A World Earth Day Tree of Hope
Digital Photo Project

Purpose: to document portraits of people and creatures on Earth Day, initiating an archive to become a visual record of a world wide green movement.

The World Earth Day Tree of Hope Digital Photo Project will create a Green Movement using the converging technologies of the Internet, Digital Devices and Solar Energy. A Virtual Tree will capture the images of faces of people and animals on Earth Day to demonstrate they share our global villages in Los Angeles, India, China, etc. The Photo Project will document the initial Green Solar Internet Digital Revolution and the creation of a sustainable future in the global village. It will capture: 1) our “green heroes” reforesting the land or having fun flying kites, 2) Mother Nature's many moods from sunny to cloudy on Earth Day, 2005, 3) a photo record leading to an understanding of all living things inhabiting Mother Earth's dominion.

The Audubon Center at Debs Park is the heart of this green inspiration. A solar showcase and laboratory for the community to learn how we can live symbiotically with Mother Nature, the Center is totally powered by solar energy for electricity and direct solar cooling and heating. The Center's wastewater is treated on site and reused. The building is constructed of recycled building materials; its furniture and fixtures also recycled materials.

The Audubon Center is a fine example, teaching us to emulate our ecosystem. Mother Nature constantly redesigns, recycles and reengineers her ecosystem to create a balance. One creature's waste is another creature's food. The only external input required is solar energy. The Center epitomizes this natural process.

“The medium is the message,” wrote Marshall McLuhan. “It takes a village,” stated Senator Hillary Clinton. This photo project will make clear that together we can spark a global green revolution where solar energy, the Internet, and digital electronic devices will transform our world into a green economy. The photo project will enable villages in developing countries to imagine leapfrogging into the Solar Internet Digital Revolution and bypassing the gray economy of the Industrial Internal Combustion Engine Revolution built during the last century on fossil energy.

We live in a wireless world with access to personal electricity by solar panels to charge our cell phones, digital cameras, laptop computers as well as provide lights and power our radios and televisions in the remotest places in African or Asia. Distance learning, telemedicine, telecommuting and e-commerce are changing our global society. Poor women living in villages in India and Africa are becoming photographers or communication service providers with their digital cameras, printers and cell phones for rent, all charged by solar energy. No longer will the large utility and power companies control the lives of two billion poor people. The abundant and free solar power is available to everyone and the Internet and digital devices will liberate the poor and empower them to become entrepreneurs in the solar century.

By enlisting photographers around the world to create the World Earth Day Tree of Hope by capturing “One Earth, One Day in the Life of Mother Nature 2005” on Saturday, April 23, 2005, The World Earth Day Tree of Hope Photo E-Gallery will begin a historical record of our quest for creating a solar economy. It will show future generations that we cared about creating a sustainable future for them.
