As the world continues to sulk under the threat of imminent armageddon, hope comes to us from the most unexpected place, kites!
Apparently if kites are flown high enough for long enough we can generate enuff energy to power huge cities. This is certainely an innovative solution to fighting the problem of global warming. Me suggests that we get all them kids off nintendo wii, xbox 360 and get them to fly them kites all day.
Seriously! watch this video of Saul Griffith and learn how kites can power your home today.
The second part is about a fellow called William Kamkwamba from Malawi who built a windmill from scratch to power his radio. Watch his green solution and see what potential Africa has to offer.
