Making Sure Your Home is Not an Energy Sink

[ScienceAlert] This time, we’ll look at space heating. In Melbourne you need it, if you don’t want to be the bad guy who goes around telling everybody to put on jumpers instead of heating the house. Our house is heated by gas, and occasionally by a wood fire. Space heating, as you can imagine, is one of the big energy […]

‘Cars 2’ Revs Up Alternative Fuels Message

On the Virgin America plane ride from San Francisco to Washington Dulles in January I had the pleasure of watching Pixar’s computer-animated action film sequel “Cars 2.” I knew there was some “controversy” stirred up by some conservative blog about director John Lasseter taking on Big Oil by making the fossil fuel industry the bad guy and clean alternative fuels […]

Blackouts Illuminate Energy Bill Importance

Tens of thousands of people walking in lockstep across the Brooklyn Bridge. The harrowing sight of a blacked-out Times Square. Unsettling, worrisome images such as these- images that should be imaginary, if not inconceivable to us - are becoming steadily more familiar. This last week was more reminiscent of the 1965 blackout than it was of the 2001 terrorist attacks, but no doubt the bad guys are taking notes.
