Cook Islands Bamboo Jack's Restaurant in the middle of Avarua, downtown Rarotonga was covered with Solacoat to assist customers be cool and comfortable while dining!
Esther Honey Animal Clinic received $1000 worth of Solacoat from Sola Bob for their animal surgery and dispensary. Michelle Gray who is stationed at Esther Honey stated, "that she is grateful to Bob for donating and painting their roof. The reduced internal temperature has given greater patient and volunteers comfort and less energy usage through air-conditioning." Well Done Bob!
Atiu Island's (Cook Island Southern Group) R/C Parrish Hall has just been covered with Solacoat! This will help Parishioners with cool and comfortable singing and prayers! Well done Sola Bob for helping many people be comfortable!
Eric Bateman owner of Tumunu Tropical Garden Bar and Restaurant in Arorangi had his restaurant and residence walls and roof painted with Solacoat by Bob Riley.
Eric says, 'It's brought the temperature down drastically and makes a lot of difference for the staff in the restaurant. You could stand inside and touch the roof and it would be hot. Now you touch it and it's cool. Eric went on to say he no longer needs his air conditioning unit which saves him money on his power bill.
Solacoat is famous in Rarotonga!
Big wet may take back seat as El Nino looms high and dry on horizon
El Nino and its opposite, La Nina, are triggered by Pacific Ocean warming and cooling and can have profound impacts on Australia's climate. The Bureau of Meteorology confirmed earlier this year that the back-to-back La Ninas of 2010-11 and 2011-12 caused Australia's wettest two-year period on record.
El Nino, by contrast, can cause widespread drought and high temperatures and, in Victoria, crop failures and the conditions for severe bushfires.
Climatologist Catherine Ganter, from the National Climate Centre, said conditions in the Pacific Ocean were ''sitting on the threshold of El Nino''.
''It's more likely than not that we'll have an El Nino,'' said Ms Ganter. It is possible for a mild El Nino to bring devastating drought, and for a strong El Nino to have little effect, she said.
''El Nino strength doesn't relate to the severity of the effect,'' she said. With a La Nina, by contrast, ''if it's a whopping great one it tends to result in us getting a lot of rain''.
According to the Bureau's three-monthly outlook, there is a 75 per cent chance that maximum temperatures in Victoria will be warmer than usual, and a 65 per cent chance - across most of the state - that Victoria will be drier than usual.
Country Fire Authority chief fire officer Euan Ferguson said Victorians ''could end up with a potentially serious situation'' over summer if an El Nino eventuated.
''That would result in forests drying rapidly, grassland having an initial spurt of growth … and then drying. We could end up with a potentially serious situation,'' he said.
Mr Ferguson said the amount of grass - a key fuel in bushfires - remained the biggest unknown. ''We're coming off a very wet winter in the eastern part of the state. With the onset of warming, that could result on a significant flush of grass growth and then potential rapid drying of forest areas.'' But ''if it's warm and dry you may find there's not a lot of grass growth at all''.
A dry spell over the next two months could also affect Victoria's grain harvest. The president of the Victorian Farmers' Federation Grains committee, Andrew Weidemann, said last month that the prospect of an El Nino was making farmers ''nervous''.
Melbourne's water storages are well prepared for drought at 73.3 per cent, the highest they have been at this time of year since 1997.

Coolshield International Won Gold at GAIA BIG 5 Awards out of 2900 Companies Worldwide
Solasteel won the prestigious Gold Award for 'Best Environmental Product' @ the Big5 in Dubai, UAE.
Solacoat won two prestigious Silver Awards for 'Pavement Coatings' and 'Heat Reflective Coatings'
Queensland's green building stars shine in the Middle East
Dubai's annual BIG 5 Construction Trade Show has been coloured with a tinge of Queensland green this year, with the success of some of the State's environment friendly building industry companies.
As part of his visit to BIG 5, Minister for Trade John Mickel met with Mr Les Crampton-Director of Coolshield International Pty Ltd, which won the inaugural Gaia Award gold medal, and commended another Queensland company, Ecospecifier, for playing a major role in developing and administering this prestigious new awards program.
"The Gaia Awards, named after the Greek earth goddess, were held for the first time this year in conjunction with BIG 5, recognising building products that contribute to environment-friendly building practices and help reduce the environmental impact of construction projects," Mr Mickel said.
"Coolshield International and their Middle East distributor, beat a field of finalists from around the world to win the inaugural Gaia Award gold medal.
"They were awarded the gold medal for the revolutionary Solasteel heat reduction product and they also received two silver medals for their innovative Solacoat roof and wall coatings and their Solapave product - a heat reflecting durable pavement finish and sealing system.
"I congratulate Coolshield International particularly on the international success of Solasteel - a pre-coated steel building product that works to reduce energy use by reflecting solar radiation from buildings, heavily cutting the need for air conditioners and other high energy cooling equipment.
"Congratulations are also inorder for Brisbane-based company, Australian Innovative Systems Pty Ltd who won a silver medal for their Autochlor patented automatic salt water chlorine generator. It can save up to 30% energy and can be used in water with any salt level, even bore and sea water," Mr Mickel said.
BIG 5 entered into an agreement with Queensland-based company Ecospecifier Global earlier this year to hold the inaugural Gaia Awards, with the aim of showcasing world-leading green products and services, just like Solasteel and Autochlor, in the Middle East.
All products and services exhibited at this years' BIG 5 exhibition were eligible to enter for the Awards, with the judging panel comprising a senior group of Dubai's local developers, contractors and government representatives.
Mr Mickel said Ecospecifier's Gaia Awards partnership complements the company's aim to develop ecological awareness in building industries across the globe.
"The company's cutting edge sustainable product database makes it accessible to the construction industry worldwide and helps link project leaders and green product manufacturers to deliver sustainable building projects," he said.
"The Ecospecifier system is now proven in Australia, New Zealand and the UAE, where it was launched in March to provide services to the Middle East. The company is also in the process of expanding services to South Africa, Singapore, Japan, China and India.
"Ecospecifier's role in organising and administering the Gaia Awards, coupled with their contribution to developing a new green building product section in the BIG 5 2008 product catalogue this year, fits well with Dubai's 2015 strategic plan to ensure all buildings are constructed in line with best environmental practices.
"I congratulate Coolshield International and Australian Innovative Systems as award winners in the inaugural Gaia Awards at BIG 5, and again commend the exhibition's partnership with Ecospecifier which illustrates a strong commitment to world-class environment-friendly construction products and practices," Mr Mickel said.
