Coal Power’s Decline, & Associated Politics

Originally published on CleanTechnica. First of all, let’s get this straight — I don’t think anyone is purely against the people who pull coal out of the ground, the people looking for steady jobs and decent income, or the people who try to help people from losing their jobs. But we are against burning coal […]

1st Cleantech Revolution Tour Conference Highlights, 2nd Conference Coming…

Originally published on CleanTechnica. The initial Cleantech Revolution Tour conference that we held in Berlin was a lot of fun, and the presentations were packed with interesting facts, figures, charts, and jokes.

Tesla Model 3 — Small Info Leak

Originally published on CleanTechnica. Update: This article originally stated that Bernard Lee was the Tesla employee Daniel talked to, but it was actually David Imai. One of our readers, Daniel Hoffmann, was recently sitting in his hotel lobby waiting to check in when he overheard someone next to him talking on the phone… and then booking […]

“No-Compromise Car” = No Such Thing

Originally published on EV Obsession. People (especially advertisers) are fond of calling plug-in hybrid and long-range, fully electric cars “no-compromise cars.” In fact, there’s no such thing as a no-compromise car… and I’m a little tired of hearing the nonsensical term. The compromises of short-range electric cars are obvious: driving over 60 or so miles […]
