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 […]

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.

Technological Hype vs. Reality

While trying to keep pace on the explosion of technological progress in the world today I come across and share many spectacular headlines. Judging by the headlines, it seems there is some sort-of magic breaking down every problem we face in the world today, but most of that magic is just marketing hype unfortunately. I always try […]
