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 #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 […]

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 […]
