5 Green Methods to Survive the Apocalypse
Sunlight powers our world, so if you're knee-deep in nuclear winter, you might want to skip
this entry. Come back and read this when you glimpse the sun finally poking through the

Still here? Good. As I was saying, sunlight is a potent energy force. It powers the Earth's
vegetation, warms the planet and can even fire up a lifesaving gadget or two. As you roam

number of solar-powered LED flashlights, radios and glowing lawn squirrels.
While you might aim to ride out the apocalypse inside a fortified anti-zombie fortress or an
underground bunker, passive solar design offers an excellent opportunity to maximize the
sun's energy -- while also conserving energy in the pre-apocalyptic world. Homes designed
with passive solar power in mind collect solar energy during the day, soaking it up in the
walls and floors through large, south-facing windows. These surfaces then emit heat during
the night to keep everyone warm.The highest lumen led flashlight.
