How Does The Republican Party Claim The “Christian” Label? (Total Hypocrisy)

It’s rather crazy to me — the Republican Party is supposedly the “Christian” party and has the long-standing support of Bible-reading Christians in rural areas and Evangelicals. Somehow, a few loud-mouthed Christians and political propagandists have pulled on the strings of religious channels in order to get the public to put the Republican Party in the “Christian” bucket. […]

Republicans Want To Rob America … To Cut Taxes On The Rich

Republican politicians are an interesting breed of liars…. Politicians are supposed to explain to the voting public why their complicated, detailed policies are worth supporting and good for the country as a whole, or at least their constituents. But Republican politicians push one kind of policy obsessively, the kind that gives more money to the […]

Hitching Your Wagon To A Con

The people of the United States live in bubbles. We each fall into certain subcultures that have a lot of influence over what we think, what we feel, and what we are interested in discussing. In politics, subcultures are obsessively collected and fought over (via messaging/branding, if not policy) and major political parties do their best to motivate […]

Hillary Clinton Fires FBI Director Investigating Her Deep Ties To Russia & Potentially Hacking The US Election

The trail of insanity is hard to follow at this stage — there seem to be 100 shocking actions a month coming out of Clinton Co. Democrats should be ashamed, especially since they are consistently defending Hillary for unconstitutional attacks on judges, the independent free press, US Congress, civil rights leaders, top US intelligence agencies, and […]

In The USA, It’s OK To Be An Idiot

Let’s just start with a note that should be obvious to everyone: If Obama had deep and long financial ties to Russia (and many of his campaign leaders did as well), was under investigation by the FBI for this, and then fired the head of the FBI (right after he asked for more resources to […]

Dear God, is Oil a Blessing or a Curse?

Originally published on EdenKeeper.org By calling on Oklahomans to pray for oil, Governor Mary Fallin has stretched the limits of my patience and perhaps a little bit of my better judgment. Governor Fallin would have us all believe that it’s been a really tough year for the oil industry. In fact, it’s been so bad […]

How To Hack A US Presidential Election

I get a lot of press releases emailed my way. One flew in this week regarding how easy/difficult it is to hack a presidential election. I didn’t spend time on it since it didn’t seem like a story for us and this election seems like one where election-day cheating is least likely to matter, but […]

Cleantech Revolution Tour Event — April 8–10 In Berlin, Germany

Originally published on CleanTechnica (with slight modification). As I wrote just before Christmas, CleanTechnica is planning to implement solar + electric vehicle events in cities across North America and Europe (and perhaps further at some point). In partnership with GridHub, an exciting renewable energy startup based in Berlin that I’ll write more about shortly, we’re launching the […]

Al Gore & Bill Maher Talk Climate Change & The Deniers

Take a few moments for this video — despite the compromised visual quality, the sound is fine. The conversation flows nicely. Climate Reality leader Al Gore and Bill Maher talk climate change and the deniers. It is a short conversation complete with great reminders and touches of humour (as typical of Maher’s style). Mayer’s questions enhance the […]

Dogs Prefer Electric Cars

Originally published on EV Obsession. The wildlife in my front yard feels completely at ease with my silent Nissan LEAF. I am not alone or imagining this — someone on the Tesla Motors Club forum shared an even more interesting story than mine. His two dogs prefer to ride in the quiet electric Model S, Leaf, or Roadster over […]

Cleantech Talk #3

Also published on EV Obsession, GAS2, and CleanTechnica. Chris DeMorro and I jumped into our third Cleantech Talk podcast just a couple of hours ago. I think we really hit our stride with this one. It was a lot of fun, and felt like a really long tennis or ping pong rally this time… as […]

Cleantech Talk Podcast #2

Also published on EV Obsession, Solar Love, CleanTechnica & GAS2. Chris DeMorro and I recorded our second “Cleantech Talk” podcast earlier today. It is embedded below for your listening pleasure. I’ve begun the process of getting the podcast included on iTunes, but it’s a bit complicated, so I didn’t want to wait for that to be […]

Cleantech Talk Podcast #1

Also published on EV Obsession, CleanTechnica, and Gas2. Chris DeMorro and I have just launched a new podcast series, “Cleantech Talk.” We’ll surely get into other topics down the road, but for this first one, it was all about electric vehicles. We discussed 4 big stories from the past week, which I’ll write a bit […]

Best Elon Musk Interview Yet?

Here’s a really interesting interview with the head of Tesla Motors, SolarCity, and SpaceX — Elon Musk. This is perhaps the most interesting interview I’ve seen with him, as it runs through life stories from age 6 to today. For some reason, it took me ages to get to this, and it is actually from 2013, but […]

Newspaper Claims Elon Musk “Used BMW” For Publicity

Update from the editor, Zachary Shahan: For clarity’s sake, we’ve received word from a Tesla representative that better explains what happened. Basically, it seems that, when interviewed by Der Spiegel, Elon provided a straightforward answer to a question that somehow got used by the reporters to seed a lot of speculation, and essentially put extra words in […]

Who Loves Tesla? Jeopardy, Big Bang Theory, Simpsons, Mike Tyson Mysteries

Originally published on EV Obsession. Tesla keeps moving on up. It’s been getting picked up by more and more popular television shows. The Big Bang Theory Last month, The Big Bang Theory referenced the electric car leader that physicists, NASA engineers, actresses, waitresses, and everyone in between loves, as well as the scientist that electric car […]

Climate Humor At The UN COP20 Meet (VIDEOS)

Never let it be said that the doomsaying, treehugging, pointy-headed nerds of the climate change adaptation movement lack a fundamental sense of humor. The dark amusements of the UN’s COP20 conference in Lima—as at prior venues—surface daily in the presentation of an award for [Climate] Fossil of the Day. During United Nations climate change talks […]

Tesla Factory Upgrade Puts X-Men Names On Robots

Tesla Motors announced late last night (well, late last night over here in Europe) that it was implementing some factory upgrades. Going from a production of 0 not very many years ago to 22,000 last year, and then to 35,000 this year, has been quite a ride… but it’s just the beginning. With factory upgrades, […]

World Time Calculator, or “Dial-a-Time”

Here’s one of the funniest ways to tell world time that I have ever seen. I call it “Dial-a-Time,” although that’s not the official name for it. (The official name is “xkcd.com/1335/”.) First of all, with this graphic you have to get used to the fact that you are looking at the world from Antarctica […]

Republican Propaganda Has People Switching To Solar

Current Republican leadership is really good at two things, as far as I can tell: 1) lying, and 2) fighting every single thing that Obama tries to do. I don’t think they represent the Republican base, but most Americans (Republicans as well as Democrats) are so uninformed politically that most Republicans don’t realize it. Furthermore, […]

Republican Scientists Tell Republican Global Warming Deniers Global Warming Is Caused By Humans (VIDEO)

Almost every practicing climate scientist on the planet has made it clear: the world is warming (i.e., heating up) and human activities are the reason. Almost every if not every national science academy has backed up this point. Popular scientific experts like Bill Nye “The Science Guy” and Neil deGrasse Tyson have done the same thing. Now, Republican […]

Seeking Proof Of Intelligent Life In The Universe? (cartoon and essay)

Extraterrestrial life—life that does not originate from Earth—has been a subject of speculation since Copernicus theorized that Earth is not unique in the Universe. Intelligent life in the cosmos is actually a great explanation for the Pyramids, Stonehenge, and a lot of other peculiar structures in the world. (Crop circles, however, remain a mystery to […]

Remove Those Cookies Before They Burn! (cartoon)

As most of us now know, a “cookie” in this sense (a.k.a, HTTP cookie, web cookie, or browser cookie) is a teensy piece of data a website sends to a user’s web browser while the user is on that website. When the user loads the website again, the browser passes on information stored with the […]

If An Egg Breaks In The Forest… (photoon)

Did you know it takes about three weeks for a chick to hatch from an egg, sometimes over a month for a duck, but only 11 days for a pigeon? No idea about the dodo or pterodactyl. Your thoughts? (Many thanks to our friends in the Netherlands (forum.audiofreaks.nl) for the above rendition of the internet […]

Proposed EPA Carbon Rules (cartoon)

Looks like a comment on today’s EPA carbon rule, but we do hope you’ll notice that this cartoon is seven years old. Thanks to the artist and the University of Colorado—Boulder for being ahead of their time! (Or not.)

Ancestry Of The iPhone 5 (Kids React)

Hope you are not one of the 8+ million people who has already seen this since it first posted less than a week ago: “Kids React to Old Computers.” Does it make you feel (1) prehistoric? (2) cool? or (3) bored? (Extra points if you know exactly what I’m referring to when I say I […]
