The Triumph of Solar in the Energy Race (L. Hunter Lovins)

Fossil fuel just lost the race with renewables…The world is now adding more capacity for renewable power each year than coal, natural gas, and oil combined.

Economy At The Edge (L. Hunter Lovins)

Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is manmade and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.

500 Kilometers On 1 Litre: Brazilian Man Shows Us Why We Don’t Need Gas Stations

… the design includes a combination of water and a single, external car battery that’s used to produce electricity, and spark the process that separates the hydrogen from the water molecule. As a result, the necessary energy to power the bike is created.

Sepp Hasslberger: Cold Fusion Verified, 10,000 Times Energy Density of Gas

Cold Fusion could change the world of energy …

Cold fusion reactor independently verified, has 10,000 times the energy density of gas

Against all probability, a device that purports to use cold fusion to generate vast amounts of power has been verified by a panel of independent scientists. The research paper, which hasn’t yet undergone peer review, seems to confirm both the existence of cold fusion, and its potency: The cold fusion device being tested has roughly 10,000 times the energy density and 1,000 times the power density of gasoline. Even allowing for a massively conservative margin of error, the scientists say that the cold fusion device they tested is 10 times more powerful than gasoline — which is currently the best fuel readily available to mankind.

Ian Crossland: Nexushaus Solar Water Independent Home

Nexushaus is an amazing and cheap solar living home that is water independent

This one story, energy positive house comes from designers from Technische Universität München (TUM) and the University of Texas at Austin (UTA). Made with almost entirely sustainable materials, a self-reliant water capture and treatment system and solar panels, Nexushaus is currently being constructed and tested in Austin, Texas.  It’s a response to a rise in the cost of housing, relative to all the new people moving to the city and an opportunity to build a house that will feed electricity back into the system. The solar panels are enough to power the lighting, air conditioning, household appliances, and an electric car.
