Solar Cooking

If we lose electricity, solar cooking is a good option—especially for those of us in sunny Fruitvale.

This site has many free plans for solar cookers that you can build from a card-board box. No shit. Talk about energy efficient. And, practically free. Check it out. I'm really digging the way the plans are all about "power to the people." Solar power. Plans are available in many languages.

You could also use a solar cooker to disinfect mail and other items you need to bring into your house. Heat kills the avian flu virus. You'd have to be careful, though, or your mail might go up in smoke. [Poof!]
