Today’s Electric Car Story

It's priceless!  The story on Fox News about a Canadian man who bought his Tesla in 2013, and needs to replace its battery (equivalent to the engine in a gas-powered car).  It is well-known that lithium-ion batteries eventually lose the ability to maintain a charge, and must be replaced.  What is not so well-known, and …

Does this sound like America today?

I read Ayn Rand's huge novel, Atlas Shrugged, in high school, and I liked it then.  And it seems pretty pertinent now.  Here is a quote from that book.  To me, it sounds like what is going on in our country today. In my opinion, Americans need to wake up and resist the not-so-gradual enslavement …

The lights are going out in Europe

And Germany has been the bellwether.  Back in the early 2000s, Chancellor Angela Merkel and her party made the momentous decision to begin the energy transition from "fossil fuels" to "renewables" as quickly as they could.  The scare-quotes around both terms are on purpose, because fossil fuels are not fossils (who is to say that …
