Man

I have to say that I hate the fact that everywhere we now go is more of the same old same old. Every major international airport on the planet is like every other major international airport: forcing passengers to suffer through the duty free malls of the same pile of mess from the same old transglobal corporations. If I’m forced… Continue reading

Just Fun to Drive! (and even more…)

A Shocking Fact Unearthed Dan Neil and Elon Musk, speaking in a Q&A after the debut of “The Revenge of the Electric Car,” talked about the amount of electricity required to create a gallon of gas. Elon said, [With the amount of electricity required to make gasoline], you get more miles out of an electric car than you would get… Continue reading

Worth It’s Own Post!

Michelle commented on my post: Cost of Driving Chloé. She said: Thanks for your research Tim, I’m considering my next car purchase this year…I hate to say this, but you’ve left out the carbon footprint of the electricity production… which is considerable in our coal-based system here in Tennessee. However – there will soon be little solar panel charge stations… Continue reading

Now Over 1,000,000!

I noticed crews working on the beach, and then it hit me:   They are cleaning up buried oil from the Gulf oil spill. I was saddened to hear from a… Continue reading

Freedom Flow

You know, all of this time I had it all wrong. The leaking oil well that belongs to the lying BP corporation should have a better PR image. Therefore, from this point forward, the Republican spin machine has designated that all media outlets and all Republican party officials will at all times refer to the environmental catastrophe as: The Freedom… Continue reading

Phillippe Cousteau Interview with Bill Maher

I had no idea that the grandson of the renowned late Jacque Cousteau lives just a few miles up the road in Santa Monica, California. As a child I loved watching his grandfather’s expeditions. This interview is so depressing. I could cut my leg off, I could cut my arm off, I could gouge my eye out, I’d still probably… Continue reading

Missing a Photograph

I’m visiting here in Arkansas. This community has its share of poverty, especially in these difficult economic times. In addition to the poverty, this state has experienced torrential rains this year–exceeding all records since they began keeping them in the 1800’s. Getting around has been even more challenging than when I visited Ireland this year. Many roads are flooded and… Continue reading

My Web Hosting Service Is Green!

I am pleased to learn that the company I use to host my site has a sense of social and environmental conscience! They have calculated their total carbon footprint (no small thing running 1,300+ servers) which amounts to about 2,725 tons of CO² per year. They then did several things to offset that carbon footprint. I encourage you to read… Continue reading
