The Raw Power of Nature

Chilean Volcano Lightning

A little reminder of just much energy is running loose in the world. If only we could hook that sucker up to the electrical grid. There's plenty of near free energy out there...we just need some clever soul to figure out how to harness it. Then maybe we can get off the crude crack.

Speaking of which - check out this incredible car slated for release in the EU in 2010. 80 to 120 mpg depending on the model!

And not to throw cold water on that exceptional car above, but we should remember that the savings from shifting from a 15mpg car to an 18mpg car are greater than shifting from a 50 to a 100..as counter-intuitive as that seems at first blush.
