Imagine if the whole, beautifully paved world looked like this.
These are solar panels that, if placed in the place of roadways and other paving sites (parking lots, parks, etc) can produce more renewable energy than the entire country produces. 
It’s currently in the prototype stage with amazing results. Plus, they can be used in all weather situations that will also make icy roads a thing of the past. Heating elements will melt any ice and snow that sits on top. Another thing, they come with LEDs inside so that you’ll have a better view of the road as you drive. All powered by solar energy. 
I Fucking Love Science posted an article about it and it’s also raising money on indiegogo, which is disgustingly far from the goal. They have some pretty sweet gifts, including bumper stickers, a necklace containing pieces of the prototypes, and an entire working prototype of the plates.
BONUS: The prototypes were made of 10% recycled plastic AND can still handle the heaviest trucks. Imagine what the final product could do.
I urge everyone to at least reblog and spread the message so that hopefully this reaches the goal at May 31st. Projects like this hit me right in the heart because of my passion for renewable energy, which is what I hope to deal with once I’m done with my Engineering degree. I would gladly work on this project if I could, but for now I’m going to settle with donating as much as I can and spreading the word as far as possible.
So, signal boost! <3

Oh, man. Some rich folks sure are gonna be mad about this, eh, guys? 
Let’s make sure it gets backed, just for that.

Fill your world
Be a friend, and you will have a friend. Give, and you receive.
Teach, and you will learn. Offer encouragement, and you’ll be lifted up.
Listen intently, seeking to truly understand, and you will be understood. Be respectful and you’ll be respected.
Life is a mirror that reflects back to you what you think, what you expect, what you feel, and what you do. The way to improve the reflection is to improve what’s being reflected.
Be the love, be the compassion, be the strength, be the responsibility that you wish to see in others. Be the best example you can imagine and you’ll be pleased with how your example is followed.
The way you most sincerely live is magnified by all that is around you. Live true to your highest purpose, and that purpose expands to fill your world.
— Ralph Marston From my partner @marseelee

Lake Michigan is still frozen.  I took these yesterday 4-15-14 at Empire, MI.  It’s breathtaking!
