When deciding where to stay for their honeymoon in Antigua, two friends of mine were torn between an intimate, exclusive, privately owned eco-retreat and one of those huge, loud, all-inclusive, couples-only mega-resorts. Knowing the bride and groom as a chill pair who preferred indie films over blockbusters, I asked what attracted them to the all-inclusive. Their answer:...

An Early Adopter Has No Regrets

Interest in alternative energy supply is not a new fad, it has been growing for years. Even Socrates, the Greek philosopher, was on to it: “In houses that look toward the south, the sun penetrates the portico in winter,” he wrote.

Albert Einstein's 1921 Nobel Prize in physics related to solar generation of electricity. President Jimmy Carter installe...
