Tesla CEO Musk used private jet 12 times to lobby Washington for DOE loans

Tesla CEO Musk used private jet 12 times to lobby Washington for DOE loans

Here's "Green Hypocrisy" for you and no, you didn't see it on the official Obama propaganda channels - NBC and The New York Times. Would hurt the Dear Leader's image if they ran this news even while they criticize other automakers for taking jets to meet the Lords Almighty in Congress.

This blog has been consistent about one thing - that Renewable Energy can be a good way of earning and saving money, first and foremost. It can be a perfect way of reducing the severe dependence of countries like the USA and India on oil from countries that are inherently hostile to them. This blog has also been severely critical of the enormous fraud that some powerful vested interests are perpetrating in the name of cap and Trade fraud as well as get rich quick schemes that seem to pop up by the day. Sadly, Elon Musk's Tesla Motors is yet another monstrous fraud, and, hopefully, someone with a conscience will call him on it. Don't expect that to happen on the pages of The New York Times or on NBC. Their acquiescence to this monstrous corruption shows what they are about.

British Company Invents a Washing Machine that Uses Almost No Water

The Telegraph has this very interesting piece on a British company, Xeros Ltd, that has invented a washing machine that uses almost no water to wash clothes: Link. Corresponding to the heavily reduced water consumption is a proportionate reduction in the use of detergent and electricity. I would like to see one of these machines, and, if they go on sale in the USA, to buy one as a replacement for the Braun at home.

The manufacturer, Xeros, has a nice website at: Link Is an Indian company going to jump and license this tech? I hope someone does . . .

Algae Biofuel a Hoax?

I just saw this very interesting article on the website of a magazine that I had not heard of before: Biodiesel Smarter via Autoblog Green The article is short and sweet - I recommend it for anyone who visits here.

For all you guys interested in the Biodiesel business, it may be a good idea to subscribe to the magazine too. Very reasonably priced and they do seem to talk very clearly and honestly.

What Renewable Energy is Really About: Saving Money

Trust a hard-nosed business newspaper like The Wall Street Journal to make the case that Renewable Energy is about saving money and not about some loony left-wing desire to save the world: Link Somehow, the morons who go around with a messianic zeal touting Renewable Energy never make the case that the use of RE is good economics. You save money over the long term because you use natural energy that you do not have to spend money to access - sunlight is free compared to buying electricity generated from coal or whatever other source, reduced pollution means less sick people and less spend on keeping your environment clean, less spending on medical treatment etc and much more. The list goes on and on.

In a country like India or Sri Lanka where most of the year brings abundant sunlight, this could mean immense savings in electricity costs, as hot water is something that everyone needs. The import of coal from other countries would slow considerably because electricity would not need to be used for heating as much as it is. Power shortages and outages would also be reduced as the load on the generation and transmission system would be minimized. Yes, without beginning with the intention of becoming another Mahatm Gandhi or Nelson Mandela, it would be possible to become self-reliant, conscientious and to save the world as well as one's own finances in a world that is increasingly getting more expensive to live in. Now, if only the loudest voices for renewable energy could see things this way . . .
