Here Come the Plug-Ins
No, it's not an air freshner ... well, maybe it is, sort of. How about a planet freshner? Hybrid cars with electric chords like neck ties. Or in this case, as tails. This announcement signals the arrival of the 100 MPG vehicle. Get ready to diversify Saudi Arabia/Iran/Venezuala.

Anybody Feel A Draft in Here?
Wind's getting windier. Companies, large and small, are beginning to get it, and get into it. This blows!!!

The End of All Problems
Well, at least quite possibly the beginning of the end of many very serious problems facing humans in industrialized countries these days. Look at what Honda just announced in both hydrogen cars AND hydrogen homes. AEman was almost dead, but this has given him a racing pulse and sweaty palms for the first time in a long time.

You're Getting Hot
AEman had the good fortune to catch this hour-long show tonight on new solar tech. In particular, on work being done at Sandia Labs with the Sterling Engine used in conjunction with solar. AEman recalls a post on this some time ago, but as he's been absent on duty for while, it's a litte foggy.
Anyway, here's the link. Check it out.

The Sunflower Solar Array
From the IdeaLab guys, an idea that may mainstream solar faster than previously thought possible. Now more than an idea, the Sunflower hits beta this fall and goes bigtime next year. Check it out.

AEman's not talking about Iran, he's talking about the US. More info in today in the Boston Globe about Iran, he's talking about the US. More info about the increasingly warm economic climate (warm climate?) for new nuclear power. Note the final paragraph on recent stealth generation expansion.
