I recently had an opportunity to get my hands on a 2019 RadRover, by Rad Power Bikes. While I did get this bike as part of a collaboration with a third party, I'm glad to have the opportunity to give our readers an independent review of the bike. So far, it's been a great ride!

In a podcast by RevealNews.org, a story is told of a scientist, Maria Caffrey, PhD, of the University of Colorado, Boulder, who works with the US Park Service. She did a four-year study of the potential impact of climate crisis on 118 national parks in 2030, 2050, and 2100. It was finished in late 2016 just before Donald Trump ascended to the presidency (after losing the vote by nearly 3,000,000 votes)

At the moment, many right-wing ideologues are sticking to abject climate change denial, crazy ideas like — it is not happening, it is good for us, it is not caused by humans, it is a left-wing conspiracy, it's designed to steal your money, and so on. Notice how many are contradictory — not happening and good for us are mutually exclusive. The idea is to throw out as many rationalizations as possible to provide a "plausible" excuse for each of their supporters via varying reality-denying views

It started out innocently enough. A college student was up late looking at absurd things on Facebook. After seeing a Facebook event planning the theft of “all of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes,” David Montero decided he wanted to make something even more ridiculous, just for fun. He quickly put together “Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us,” and went to bed

Covering solar power, wind power, and electric vehicles obsessively for ~10 years, I have run across some fascinating observations regarding these technologies and the transitions we are going through — and then I've subsequently forgotten many of them. This article is centered around one of the coolest observations I've run across, which slipped my mind for a while but just came back to the forefront this week

A North State Journal article on Duke Energy and solar was an anti-renewables PR hit piece funded by anti-renewables fossil fuel industry money in an outlet that is a right-wing broadsheet that pretends to have journalist standards. Yet it pretended to be otherwise. That’s the anti-renewables disinformation campaign in a nutshell

Drowsy driving is more common than you think.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention point out that "no one knows the exact moment when sleep comes over their body. Falling asleep at the wheel is clearly dangerous, but being sleepy affects your ability to drive safely even if you don’t fall asleep"

"A Story About Life," starring a Tesla Model 3, is a somewhat new video posted on Vimeo. It's not just another Tesla video. Yes, the Model 3 is a co-star in the video, but the main character is a gentleman whose journey isn't just another Tesla road trip, but one of choice as he reacts to something heartbreaking

I suspect, being a progressive bunch, at least a few of us are Star Trek fans. Climate denial is mostly funded by oil company greed, and oil company actions are meant to maximize their profits. So, the idea of this series of short (somewhat satirical) articles is that climate change denial will be analyzed under the lens of each stated rule, how it applies, and what we should consider for our strategies to achieve climate victory over oil company greed
