Tesla, Tesla, Tesla!

Tesla, Tesla, Tesla!

What is in a name? Tesla is the scientific name given to indicate the strength of a magnetic field. It hearkens from the famous inventor and electrical engineer – Nikola Tesla. It is also the name of one of the most well known companies in the world today. I suspect Elon Musk chose the name for it applicability […]

Cheaper Self-Driving Cars

What could be real game-changer when it comes to a “cleaner” and more efficient economic future (not to mention much less blood on the highways) is self-driving cars. Let us face it, our cities are built for cars (not humans). Re-configuring our cities to be more human-centric in the information age would be a monumental […]

Focusing on the Good

Negative “Armageddon” stories about the environment are a dime a dozen. A couple of weeks ago the World Wildlife Federation released their latest “Living Planet Report”. They have tracked some of the declines in some wildlife populations and species since 1970 and claim that, on average, numbers will have declined 67% percent by 2020. This seems […]

Innovation and progress – a winning strategy

The very paradoxical and antagonistic nature of our national economic and environmental policy continues. I hate to beat a dead horse, but if our national economic policy is grow, grow, grow and build, build, build, there are going to be environmental consequences. I’ve got news for economic planners: houses, strip malls, and parking lots require […]

Get with the program!

I bought an electric lawnmower. I wasn’t planning on it, but I have tried to use new and used gas mowers (4 push mowers and 2 riding lawnmowers) over the last couple of years and every single one of them has broken down! I had to give up on gas mowers. Now that I have […]

Electric vehicles getting cheaper

It has been a long time since I started writing about how self-driving and electric vehicles could really transform how we get around in addition to making the environment (including the air), a lot cleaner. Now, a new study projects that electric vehicles could overtake gas combustion varieties as soon as the 2020s. The two reasons why there has […]

Solar power continues growth

In my last blog entry I highlighted how malinvestment is ruining the environment. It is a rather depressing topic because there doesn’t seem to be much hope of turning things around anytime soon. More likely than not, various planned economies around the world will continue overproducing goods where they are not needed. It is not all bad […]

Fuels of the Future

In the hopes of creating a cleaner sustainable energy future, it was once believed that converting grain crops into biofuel (ethanol), would help. That was a long time ago (many times documented in the weather blog). Through practice and study, it has been found that grain-based biofuels are not an optimal solution for the future. In […]

Record Cold Pace in March 2014

Time to revisit the topic of records for March. If you recall, there was some discussion flying around earlier this month about the Farmer’s Almanac predicting 30 inches of snow in March. I took a look at the claims in the blog. So far, the supposed Almanac forecast is not looking too accurate. Only 2.1 […]

New Jersey Considers Banning the Sale of Tesla

As you know, I follow and report a lot of technological developments in order to demonstrate that –  no, the world might not burn up in a few decades due to anthropogenic global warming and – yes, we can continue to clean up pollution. There are a lot of great things going on, but once […]
