Doomsayers, Prophets and many religious leaders are out there telling us that 2012 is about it folks. The Party will soon be over, they say, despite newly elected leaders and world shake-ups.

Well, I’m none of the above, and will not have this platform turn political or religious. However, I do know about solar ovens and cooking with them. If some disasters and catastrophes are to befall any of us in 2012, especially of natural origin, like a flood, tornado, hurricane or earthquake, then I feel certain that a solar oven will be a useful and possibly life-saving possession.

Whatever aforementioned calamity occurs and puts you through trials and tribulations, the solar cooker can be put to work immediately. Strength and health can be maintained by a steady supply of cooked food. Often, the foods to be prepared, particularly meat dishes, need no extra water added. The food cooks in its own juices. If fresh water is limited, or if concerns over its potability arise, the solar oven can also be used for water pasteurization. In fact, some models, like the SOS Sport, include a water pasteurization indicator in its kit. Sunny days are the essential ingredient to make solar ovens operate. However, newer hybrid models,like the Tulsi Electric Hybrid, have an electric backup system. This allows for continued cooking if clouds appear, but power is available. If necessary,you could conceivably prepare food at night, with a solar electric model oven.

Many panel style solar cookers have been used for years in remote Africa to help battle the ever present reality of wood shortages for fireplace cooking. More recently during Haiti’s disaster, global sun ovens were used to help keep surviving populations strong and fed. People were using solar ovens in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina did its damage. It’s also been reported that, during the recent Turkey earthquakes, TV crews filmed people using solar ovens.

Certainly, solar cookers can help during many types of disasters. But, if the real end of the world comes, I’ll probably be caught with my solar oven by my side, with its easy-to-carry handle and, maybe a can of soup. Let’s hope 2012 brings us all good fortune, a better economy and world peace!

 Happy New Year!
