Hot Light

UPDATE 7/22/11 – Today, Philo completed his first week of Summer Science Camp, during which he attempted to power a light bulb with eight lemons – unfortunately to no avail. Still, with a printout of the scientific method flow chart in his hot little hand, his quest for cold illumination is officially underway.

So tonight, after Philo told me about how fireflies mate, I decided it was time to have the talk …


… the talk about the inefficiencies of our current light technology, and how much of the energy is wasted as heat, and that he should resolve to develop synthesized cold illumination similar to what fireflies produce. We’ll keep you posted.
