Since there is quite a few blogs going now on Global warming, I am going to start focusing on the new technology to break us away from fossil fuel use in this country. There are many other reasons than GW why we as a nation should be really focusing on making the switch!!


"There are so many arguments proving & disputing global warming that people can't seem to agree completely on it. But for all the preparations that we make for hurricanes & other disasters, what do we have to lose if we prepare for global warming as if the worst might come true?
The answer is pure common sense. We should try to eliminate the variables that cause global warming instead of just arguing about it. It's like a hurricane- if we prepare for the worst, it can only save lives & money. If it does not come, no one will have been hurt & we may even have a healthier Earth."


HIGHLY RECOMMENDED READING!!!!!
A SOLAR GRAND PLAN!!!!

"The greatest obstacle to implementing a renewable U.S. energy system is not technology or money, however. It is the lack of public awareness that solar power is a practical alternative—and one that can fuel transportation as well. Forward-looking thinkers should try to inspire U.S. citizens, and their political and scientific leaders, about solar power’s incredible potential. Once Americans realize that potential, we believe the desire for energy self-sufficiency and the need to reduce carbon dioxide emissions will prompt them to adopt a national solar plan."

Radio Show I recommend EVERYONE to listen to:
Rifkin has been influential in shaping public policy in the United States and around the world. He has testified before numerous congressional committees and has had consistent success in litigation to ensure responsible government policies on a variety of environmental, scientific and technology related issues. The National Journal named Rifkin as one of 150 people in the U.S. that have the most influence in shaping federal government policy.

Letter from California
Plugged In
Can Elon Musk lead the way to an electric-car future?
by Tad Friend


Long article but, this jumped out at me towards the end..

"And in May, in an important vote of confidence, Daimler A.G. bought nine per cent of Tesla, for fifty million dollars—even as it was relinquishing a twenty-per-cent stake in Chrysler, which it had owned entirely as recently as 2007. “Tesla enables
us to skip a generation and get into electric as fast as possible,” Daimler’s Herbert Kohler told me.


I was wondering why a few months ago Chrysler released plans for several EV vehicles.

Thanx Rich,
I saw that on sky & telescope's site. I was gonna post it but, never got around to it. One thing I will say again, its good there is so much bickering on both sides of the GW debate. They are sooo busy trying to prove each other wrong that maybe finally we will get down to the botttom of the mystery & get some answers... LOL

I'm impatiently waiting for the chargers!
: )
Cash for Clunkers created a difficult time for me! LOL
Yep, my vehicle was totaled and when I went car shopping there was not a big choice of vehicles on the lots. Plus its all the end of year and a lot of the models had been picked over! I was quite frustrated.... finally "sucked it up" and bought a 2010. One salesman told me that it was like being the last person at a yardsale, all the good stuff was gone & all that was left were the undesirables! Hence, the 2010....

LEDs take to the streets - SmartPlanet
Indeed, lower electric bills are chief among the reasons why cash-strapped towns and cities across America are installing or looking at light-emitting diode or LED street lamps. But lower maintenance costs and environmental impact are just as motivating (check out the video of a novel LED street lamp driven by wind and solar, below!).
....
They are designed to waste less light and produce less light pollution too! :^)

Quoting Fshhead:
Forget gas, batteries — pee is new power source
Scientists can create cheap hydrogen from urine for use in fuel cells


Hmmm Might be a good time to take a second look at hydrogen technology??

Cool! The first step in a hydrogen economy -

A hydrogen car is not a hydrogen economy - SmartPlanet
....
So we’re talking about a three-step process for hydrogen, with cars coming in at the end:

1. Hydrogen production guarantees a market for alternative power sources, making that energy portable.

2. Utilities can be the first customers for that hydrogen, for use in fuel cells as back-up for peak loads and blackouts.

3. All this funds the creation of a real hydrogen infrastructure, one not tied to hydrocarbons, which then makes a hydrogen car make sense.

One more point. You know what you get from building these market incentives and hydrogen infrastructure?

Economic growth.
