in the matrix 1 the reason for why the machines need humans as energy sources is because the humans scortched the sky to cut off solar power. In the matrix three neo and trinity fly their ship right through the scortched sky and see the sun. If it is that easy to get to the sun, why enslave mankind as an energy source? This one scene defeats the purpose of the matrix in the first plac and made me quite angry. Any comments?
the "clouds" blocking the sun aren't really clouds. they're nanomachines designed specifically to disable anything electronis and computerized that reaches it. that's the reason why the sentinels fell off the logos and that's the reason why the logos shut down and started plumetting down. if it were actually that easy, the machines would've cleaned that mess up a few hours after the humans detonated it.

put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus,
and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it,
to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!" - Mario Savio
It is indeed amazing that we can make use of it's heat. To have energy for our homes and appliances and of course, to save! Solar energy panels really helped many people. It is very useful and reasonable in saving money. It is all natural and a green nature friendly.
