Re merging with the Cookit article[edit]

In addition to the Cookit, Solar Cookers International are involved with several items including the WAPI, the Portable Microbiology Lab, and the Safe Water Package. If the Cookit article is "stubby", it would be better to merge it with the Solar Cooker article as it is a type of solar cooker. ----Tal Bee (talk) 18:13, 22 February 2010 (UTC)

Since SCI is an NGO and the CooKit is a solar cooker, these should not be merged. This article will be elaborated very soon. Tom Sponheim (talk) 07:53, 27 December 2010 (UTC)

WAPI[edit]

So, Metacalf is one of the personnel in volved with SCI and the device was apparently developed by him and his students.. but how does it direclty relate to SCI? Some sources... http://aem.asm.org/content/65/2/859.full ISBN 9781566703932 http://www.csus.edu/news/120103solarWater.stm Cantaloupe2 (talk) 11:24, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Thoughts on referencing materials authored by individuals with close affiliaton?[edit]

Metacalf is an author of an article in ASM jorunal, although given that he is closely connected to SCI and its agents already heavily edit this page, it appears to be promoting its own agenda. Rather than other designs, it obviously uses designs that promote that of its directors... Cantaloupe2 (talk) 11:29, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
