America’s Mandate: Energy Independence – Part 2: 11 Nissan, 5741 • April 15, 1981

There is a solution to America’s energy crisis: Solar Energy. Solar technology requires far less time to develop than other energy sources. What can a small group of Jews accomplish by discussing this issue amongst themselves? Maimonides rules that even a single statement based on Torah, has the power to tip the scales for salvation. Past experiences have shown that issues discussed here, have reached Washington.

What can a small group of Jews accomplish by discussing this issue amongst themselves? Maimonides rules that even a single statement based on Torah, has the power to tip the scales for salvation. Past experiences have shown that issues discussed here, have reached Washington.

When hostile nations can no longer use oil to manipulate US policy, America’s influence will increase, without having to use force. G-d has blessed this Nation of Kindness with plentiful sources of energy to accomplish a mission – to promote true goodness throughout the world.

As a follow up to this talk.

Currently, solar power supplies less than 1% of the world's energy needs, which has led many to disregard its future significance. Where they're wrong is that they fail to understand the exponential nature of technology, says eminent inventor and futurist Ray Kurzweil. Just like computer processing speed—which doubles every 18 months in accordance with Moore's law—the nanotechnology that drives innovations in solar power progresses exponentially, he says. "Solar panels are coming down dramatically in cost per watt. And as a result of that, the total amount of solar energy is growing, not linearly, but exponentially. It’s doubling every 2 years and has been for 20 years. And again, it’s a very smooth curve.
