Episode 17: Let there be light!

SummaryArticlesMedia
This week is all about light. Hosts Diego, Dave, Trisha, and Lisl talk with Martha Lenio about what photovoltaic cells mean for the future of solar energy, and why you and your dog may be more similar than you think. Our feature article this week reveals a “modern science miracle,” a chemical called DENAQ that binds to potassium channels in ganglion cells of the eye to restore light sensitivity to mice. As a large percentage of us at Goggles Optional staff are blind as bats we join these mice in exclaiming, “Let there be light!”

We went wrong with powering our hungry devices
Too many years of pollution are are starting to show

And the ozone levels are down
And the carbon’s building up
Wouldn’t it be better if we
Could get power from above?

X X X

But with renewables
We could all get by
Better in the long run
Yes with renewables,
We’ll get our energy From wind
and from the sun
Yes I think we could be a lot more green about this?
Yes I think we could be a lot more green about this?

We were caught up and lost burning fossil fuel
Alternatives were kept hushed up and we were made fools

And the ozone levels are down
And the carbon’s building up
Wouldn’t it be better if we
Could get power from above?

X X X

But with renewables
We could all get by
Better in the long run
Yes with renewables,
We’ll get clean energy From wind
and from the sun
Yes I think we could be a lot more green about this?
Yes I think we could be a lot more green about this?

Eh-eh-o eh-o [4x]

Oh where do we begin?
The sunlight or the wind?
Oh oh where do we begin?
The sunlight or the wind?

And the ozone levels are down
And the carbon’s building up
Wouldn’t it be better if we
Could get power from above?

But with renewables
We could all get by
Better in the long run
Yes with renewables,
We could derive energy From wind
and power from the sun
Yes I think we could be a lot more green about this?
Yes I think we could be a lot more green about this?

Yes with renewables, does it almost feel like we could save the world?
