Building on the success of Pollutec’s trade shows in France, Algeria
and in the United Arab Emirates, and under the supervision of the
Secretary of State for Water and the Environment, Pollutec Maroc is set
to become the number one event for environmental professionals in
you're in the Clean Tech Industry, this is one major investment opportunity you don't want to miss out on!
In case you haven't heard, Morocco has been making huge progress with
its socioeconomic development lately, trying to improve the country's overall
living conditions as well as the economy.
As it is right now approximately 35% of its population lacks
electricity, so in order to take care of that problem, Morocco is investing
heavily in energy efficiency with solar and wind farms as well as hydro energy.
The other primary objective is also focusing on protecting the environment to help improve the quality of the agricultural and fishing industries, and desalinization to provide fresh
water to remote areas.
A couple of days after President Obama's appearance on David Letterman,
people are still talking about his comments on healthcare and the fact that he
claimed he was black before he became president, as an attempt to put the racial
issue to rest (probably because the issue was
re-ignited recently by President Carter).
What very few people seem to have paid attention to
is Obama's comments on the state of the
economy and some of his ideas on how to get it back on track. Of course it
doesn't help that CBS only made a couple of clips from that show available
on Youtube and has since diligently enforced the removal of any segment that was posted by other YouTube users, but luckily someone
posted some audios, probably hoping to dodge CBS's persistent
suppression of information attempts.
Now here's the part that interests me the most....the part where the
economy and CLEAN ENERGY are the focal points:
President Obama says:
We are not out of the woods yet....things are still fragile...most
economists think that we'll start growing this quarter for the first time, but
the problem that we've got, the biggest problem that we have right now, is that
employment lags, so even when businesses start to invest, they don't start
hiring people back right away and obviously folks are going through incredible
hardship because of that loss of employment. That means that the housing market
is still weaker, it means that people are still having a hard time paying their
...even when the economy is going well, one of the great things about the
US economy is it's dynamic, and so people are starting their own businesses,
moving to better jobs, they're deciding to move to another state in search of
other opportunities, so there is always turnover in terms of employment. The
problem right now, we lost so many jobs over the last year and a half....I mean
when I came into office we were losing 700 jobs a month! And what ends up
happening then is, that trying to make up for all those losses in the last year
is going to take some time, we're going to have to grow in a much faster
(4:50) ...the single most important task for my administration and my
economic advisers is how we make sure that we put people back to work...now
there is some areas like for example Clean Energy, that has huge potential!
Every building all across the United States probably could use some retrofitting
to make it much more energy efficient. Doing that, that one thing, could put
hundreds of thousands of people back to work and that's why we emphasize things
such as Clean Energy.
Melding design with technology, Sustainably Minded Interactive Technology or SMIT, the brother-and-sister start-up out
of Brooklyn, N.Y., is developing a miniature solar panel system that, once interconnected, takes the form of ivy sitting on
the sides of buildings.
OK, maybe you don't find these solar goodies all that irresistible anyway, but perhaps if you look at them long enough they'll start to grow on you eventually.
And maybe the whole Solar concept sounds kind of alien to you right now, but if you think of it as a clean and wholesome source of energy handed to you straight from the sun in order to make free electricity, which could possibly last you a lifetime with minimal investment, then maybe...umm...
I guess that still doesn't do it for you, but there comes a day when a light will go on...or off in your head and make you realize all the money you could have saved or made, if you had paid attention sooner to all the amazing practical purposes of buying into solar. Hopefully when that time comes for you, solar still hasn't gone mainstream and there is still time for you to profit from it in a big way and make a significant difference in your life.
