Wednesday, April 8, 6pm EDT: Mitchell has invited back environmentalist, M.I.T. trained engineer, author, popular speaker, Matthew Stein, to discuss the issues of solar storms, climate change, emergency disruptions and what to do about them. Mitchell and Matt will also discuss safe, green and sustainable building, bearing in mind the ever-changing landscape of our earth at this point in time and climate change.
Matt has been a guest numerous times on Coast-to-Coast and other national TV and Radio shows, and is for the second time on A Better World Radio with Mitchell Rabin.
Matthew is an environmentalist, bestselling author, MIT trained engineer, and green builder. As an inspiring speaker and visionary thinker, he is dedicated to helping people wake up and unite to shift our collective course from collapse to global renaissance. On the practical side of things,as an expert at self-reliance, emergency prep, and survival, his writings and work help people prepare to weather the storms we are facing due to continuing climate change and ecological decline, coupled with a fossil fuel based economy that has recently passed the peak in world oil production and is struggling to cope with impending near-term shortfalls.
Stein is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he majored in Mechanical Engineering.

Join TalkSolar host Beth Bond as she interviews Ralph Velasquez, NewWind out of Nashville, Tennessee about their new way to maximize solar on your roof.
Ralph has been involved in the roofing and building industry since 1978 and renewable technologies since 1999 .In his career, he has re-roofed millions of square feet in the Industrial, Commercial, Institutional and Governmental sectors all over North America. His passion for sustainability was formed from his early ideals of stewardship, minimalism and legacy, sharpened by five years in the late 80's and early 90's, working in sub-sahara Africa.
Ralph is one of the industry's early innovators in the green roof industry. He developed the GreenSave calculator, the green roof industry's first financial benefit calculator and was part of the ASTM sub-committee that wrote the first five national ASTM standards for green roofs. He completed the first ever green roof installation on a Presidential Library, with the completion of the William Jefferson Clinton Library in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2008 and an award winning design on the National Institutes of Health, in Bethsesda, MD Involved in distributed solar since 2008, Ralph developed over 3.5 mW of rooftop solar during the throngs of the great recession, from 2008-2010,
From 2010-2012, Ralph was the Executive Director for Sustainability for a global roofing manufacturer, responsible for all policy and strategic sustainability initiatives, world-wide. In late 2012, Ralph, along with his wife, formed Ark Investments to focus on micro investment opportunities in sustainability, in rural and local communities. To date investments have been made in sustainable animal husbandry, music and land development. Earlier this spring, Ralph joined NWES, as the Sr. Director of Business Development to again pursue the idea of rooftop solar, this time with a ROI financial focus.

I'm Walter Rossie Jr. and I'm on this week's episode I will be exposing a company called Summerwind Solar Cal LLC, and sharing my negative experience in dealing with Bud Rice and Bill Roush. I sold solar for Summerwind Solar LLC to save money so I could use that very money to live my new dream as a motivational speaker and author. I was the top performer in sales for our California office but Bud and Bill decided not to pay me $36,000 and fled back to the Arizona office where they are operating a similarly named company. I'm especially irritated because this week I have to spend money on a a lawyer. So my mission is two fold:
First to expose Bill Roush and Bud Rice for what they've done in California and the lives they've damaged so people in Arizona will know who they are dealing with.
Second is to bring to light the inescapable and sometimes devistating effects of the law of Cause and Effect. A law the ignorance of which can make you very sick or even kill you when violated, like Bill Roush. I witnessed Bill suffer a second heart attack, panic attacks and looked half dead the last time we saw him. I believe it's due to negative energy he's absorbed by doing financial harm to good people that trusted him. Bill was once a good man and now his soul is suffering and his body is reflection of that. We will talk about a spiritual solution to Bill's problem and maybe we can all assist him or anyone else who is suffering the consequences of choosing the Left Handed Path.
I'm a survivor of darkness myself and will share the truth of how I was able to step out of my own darkness and live in the light. "A single sunbeam is enough to drive away any shadows..." ~St. Frances of Assisi

Today on "It's My House" we shall be discussing how the combination of Women and Solar Energy Creates Wealth. We shall based talks today on two organizations:
Solar Sisters in Uganda
Barefoot College in India
Both Solar Sister and the Barefoot College train women to become "Solar Entrepreneurs" and for many people that is where the ball is going "Solar Entrepreneurship". Many individuals and communities will have problems of various concerns solved via training in the field of Renewable Energy.
Make sure you have pen and paper ready to take plenty of notes.

Utility Bill Entrepreneurs
Of course there are well over 200 plus career options available to people who are "alert" in this pioneering industry.
If a person is on Social Services and they want to get off it an become totally independant............then compare for yourself....which world is better..........thus Solar Entrepreneurship vs Social Services.
