The International Solar Cat Society (ISCS) was established by cats at the dawn of human civilization as the official conduit of solar energy catvangelism and technology transfer from cats to people.
Cats chose this name mostly because it sounds a lot like the human-devised International Solar Energy Society (ISES). ISES is the oldest organization in the world devoted to fostering the use of solar energy in all its forms for the benefit of humankind. It was formally established in 1954 following World War II by prominent scientists from around the world including the chief metallurgist of the Manhattan Project, Dr. Farrington Daniels. Human use and understanding of solar energy at that time was indeed primitive by today's standards, particularly when compared to the staggering amount of attention paid to nuclear energy. Yet that small group of forward thinking, dedicated scientists knew that direct use of the sun's energy was indeed humanity's best choice for a truely long term, and sustainable energy source..
ISES has many parts - one for nearly every nation on earth. The American Solar Energy Society (ASES), is the U.S. branch, but there are many many other solar, renewable, green, and "sustainable" energy organizations in the U.S. and around the world that have popped up in recent decades. You can connect to them through the ISES or ASES web sites.
So all this just goes to show that ISCS has provided the solid foundation of solar energy knowledge and technical expertise upon which our future depends!
Nearly 50 years after the founding of ISES, when human interest in solar energy was again on the rise, the board of the ISCS convinced Jim Augustyn to print a revised edition of The Solar Cat Book. This important publication, The Return of the Solar Cat Book, contains new and absolutely vital information: Directions to the end of the earth. Why the nuclear dog is a red herring. What to do if you are allergic to cats.
To learn more about these stunning revelations buy a copy of The Return of the Solar Cat Book and join the ISCS to stay on top of new developments in this important field of knowledge. You might also look into ISES, ASES, or you local ISES affiliate.
