Don’t grow volts?

I went off to Lincoln today to see Matthew who runs a wheelys cafe there. The Wheely’s product seems great and i am keen to see it – but due to a misunderstanding Matthew was not there.

So instead i got to thinking about bigger and probably more important things.

If you got to Lincoln by train from Sheffield before you get to Saxilby, you will see out of the left hand window, acres of solar panels.

food or solar panels?What do we think about this? I cannot work it out. Every so often i think – how good it is that technoloy has come so far. And then when looking at the ones outside Lincoln, i think: this is not marginal land; this should be growing stuff.

Instead it is growing volts so we can microwave some processed chemicals from the supermarket.

What do you think?
