30 Reasons To Buy An Electric Car … Today!

June 16th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

My increasingly good friend Paul Fosse wrote an article yesterday giving 5 reasons to buy a Tesla before July 1. At the end of the article, he linked to a 2016 article of mine that I had forgotten about. It's a simple listicle but it's actually one of my favorite articles. So, thanks to Paul, I'm reposting it today. In 2016, it was titled, "30 Reasons Your Next Car Should Be Electric." At this point in time, I think it's more appropriate to say that you should buy that car today, not wait any longer. Hopefully you'll agree after reading through this list

Apple's self-driving car project named Project Titan has been flying under the radar for some time now.  The company certainly does not send out frequent updates on its efforts. Some have even speculated that the company has for all intents and purposes given up on the endeavor. However, multiple outlets, including CNBC, are reporting that Apple has made some key recent hires in this realm


Largest Investors In Utilities Are Voting Against Climate Risk Disclosure

December 7th, 2017 | by Joshua S Hill

Exxon Mobil shareholders earlier this year successfully voted to demand climate risk disclosure in a move which was widely held as a bellwether for similar moves across the sector, but a new report from Preventable Surprises has revealed that some of the largest investors in utilities are voting against climate risk disclosure, preferring private engagement over public proxy votes. 


An Oil Man Dies

July 28th, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

I recently got news of a hugely accomplished oil man dying. This guy was the top guy in charge of finding oil for Exxon across most of the USA (barring California and Alaska) when he retired. Years after retirement, he once told me that we had just gotten "spoiled" and our addiction to cheap oil was basically unsustainable
