With the turn of the century in 2000, the world started to turn its back on the wrong-headed developments of the past that resulted in global pollution and the misery it entails, a climate getting out of control, the threat of a nuclear war, and all that resulted from the unsustainable use of fossil and atomic resources. We have now resolutely engaged ourselves again on the path to a life in harmony with nature, with the Sun. Not only the climate but everyone is a winner going with the Sun and its benefits. Thanks to innovation and mass production, the power derived from the Sun now beats the conventional energy sector with its own strength: socio-economy. Solar energy has become cheaper than the conventional resources. The result is a booming economy that is sustainable, with millions of new jobs.

Authored by Wolfgang Palz, an independent expert on energy matters and the economy, this book presents his views on a solar revolution to which he contributed. It is not about ecological dreams and wishful thinking for a better world but a report about what happened, in facts and figures. Beginning with fundamentals, the book discusses the key role of the Sun for nature and life. It details what happened when the endeavour for a cleaner world began and elaborates the efforts of the people who brought about the change.
