Did Douglas Adams Explain The Roots Of Climate Change Denial & Cleantech Backlash?

June 26th, 2019 | by Barry A.F.

I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies: 1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. 2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. 3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things. —Douglas Adams

Refilling Lake Chad With Water From The Congo River Using Solar Power

June 24th, 2019 | by David Zarembka

Decades ago, when I was in high school, I read Willy Ley’s book Engineer’s Dreams: Great Projects that Could Come True. I vividly remember one of these gigantic, pie-in-the-sky dream projects. If the Congo River were dammed at the right spot, a large lake would form. It would then overflow into a river feeding into Lake Chad. Lake Chad would fill up to its prehistoric level and would then overflow into an ancient river that once flowed through Algeria and Morocco into the Mediterranean Sea

Our New Tesla Myths Page

June 23rd, 2019 | by Vijay Govindan

As part of my efforts to fight untrue Tesla myths, I recently engaged the Tesla community to create a Tesla Myth Busters FAQ page. I sent out a call to “assemble a full-fledged myth-busting campaign,” and people responded. We simply want to set the record straight regarding various Tesla myths. Thanks to the Tesla community who heeded my call, this first draft was produced in just four days, which is astonishing and wonderful when you think about it


Electric Vehicles, Renewables, & The Changing World Dynamic

June 22nd, 2019 | by Robert Dee

Every time someone buys or leases an EV, fossil fuel's stranglehold lessens. That's the cost differentiation between EVs and ICEs. The individual benefit, as I am enjoying, is autonomy and the opportunity to have free electricity for cars and homes. EVs are thinking people's cars, yes, and it takes planning and work, but we'll have a better life and planet for it
