Title: Solar box cookers
Abstract: Modern city dwellers are privileged: most people do not even have a switch to flip. Rice was cooked by the sun in a brown teapot, before we had a black cooking pot. It worked. Half the inhabitants of Earth cook over woodfires -- 45% of the world's wood is used as fuel. But there's not enough to go round: some 2.4 billion people are now facing shortages of fuelwood. Instructions as well as background are provided.
