The naivety of the inventor

HyperCar"In 1999, we took this process a step further by launching a for-profit venture, Hypercar, Inc., to speed the industry's transition by exerting direct competitive pressure."? Pressure on who? What were they thinking? The way the Hyper Car would have actually made it to market would have been if RMI bought a "Bat Cave" and built it there. Yes, a side of small mountain, somewhere in the Rocky Mountains where they built and sold these things with little or no mainstream publicity.

T Boone Pickens - Wind energy in mass!

Updated 4/1/09:

There is one word of caution regarding The Pickens plan. Mr. Picken's Plan seems to promote the building of giant wind farms to produce electricity. And this is GREAT! But he is not all that altruistic as he says little or nothing about his strong underling agenda for public support to convert our national transportation fleet to run on CNG (Compressed Natural Gas.) Mr. Pickens is a savvy business person and is already heavily invested in Natural Gas. If he is successful with this push this will:

  1. Continue to suck economic resources from your community but now place them into the pockets of Mr. Pickens and Natural Gas partners.
  2. Sharply drive up the cost of Natural Gas, making home heating even more expensive (if that's possible)
  3. Distract Detroit from retooling to build 100% Electric Vehicles.
  4. Offer only a small fraction of new jobs in comparison to what the EV market will create.
  5. Lastly, and very important, NG has some serious environmental hazards.

Finally, someone from the oil industry understands the need to move our energy source to something clean, sustainable and none combative. If you've not heard of the "The Pickens Plan" you should check it out. Mr Pickens will soon be responsible for the US becoming the largest producer of wind produced electricity in the world.

But remember, we mustn't stop at wind farms - so, marry this wind path with Electric Vehicles and high tech batteries, or possibly hydrogen energy storage, as a widely adopted transportation fuel sources, and America is on the right track.

If we accomplish making these two energy platforms the standard in American society we've done our job right and the world will quickly, and eagerly, follow.

Will Mr. Pickens make money on this venture? Sure he will! But that's what business is all about. I think we'd all much rather give our money to someone doing the right thing, wouldn't we?

Who says one person can't make a difference.

A small word of caution. Mr. Picken's Plan is not all that altruistic. Be careful not to fall victim to his underling message about converting Detroit to CNG. He is heavily invested in Natural Gas. This move would only distract us from Electric Vehicles and sharply increase the cost of Natural Gas.

The Cost of Low Tire Pressure

Did you know that driving on tires that are 20% under inflated costs you around $.15/gal of gas? (at today's rate of $3.00/gallon) That's $1.50 per 10 gallons or roughly around $2.50 to $3.00 per fill up. When was the last time you checked your tire pressure?

Here's an innovative device that will alert you when your tires are low. At the average cost of $5 each, if your driving around on under inflated tires, these little guys will pay for themselves in no time at all, not to mention you'll also lower your carbon footprint.

Chipping away to become Eco-Friendly

Frito-Lay will take a major Eco-Friendly step by taking its Arizona factory off the grid.

A design that will reduce electricity and water consumption by 90%, and greenhouse gas reduction by 75%!

How? - Potato peelings will be used to fertilize farmland. Filters will recycle wastewater and use it to power the factory. Other wastewater will be burned to produce methane to power boilers. In addition, more efficient ovens will be used, along with vacuum hoses to absorb moisture from the taters. Less moisture means less energy is required to cook the chips. Heat from heat stacks will be recaptured and reused. Skylights will light the entire factory.

Renewable energy will power much of the plant. 50 acres of solar concentrators are to be built behind the plant for energy, and a biomass generator will burn agricultural waste to produce even more energy.

Who says you can't get frying "hot" with green energy!
