Solar Freakin' Roadways

From Idaho-based start-up Solar Roadways, run by engineers Scott and Julie Brusaw, a brilliant idea that will provide clean energy, cut pollution, keep roads snow-free, revolutionize road safety, eliminate electrical and telephone poles, allow year-round biking, create thousands of jobs, and oh yeah, save the planet. A couple more days to their IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign, which has already raised almost a half million over their $1 million goal after initial funding from federal highway officials. Detractors raise objections - for starters, a projected $56 trillion price tag - but dreams have to start someplace. Plus, their video is almost as brilliant as their idea.


FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
