Solar: Still a bright future – when consumer continue to demand change

Tesla is a great example of being a pioneer in an industry. Consumers simply have to make informed decisions that will keep Solar and electric vehicles at the cutting edge and profitable to make. The article discusses how an average home solar system is only $16,000 today. This price should continue to decline as long as consumers increase their reliance on the platform.

America: Temperature is Rising

Near-record highs and very little snowfall have been the story of October and November in Colorado. On Oct. 22, Arapahoe Basin became the first ski area in North America to open for the season before a rash of temperatures in the 40s and 50s put a damper on snowmaking at Loveland Ski Area, Keystone, Breckenridge and other resorts across the state. On Nov. 7, Loveland Ski Area announced it will open with a top-to-bottom run on Nov. 10.

Envy – To Love Me

  A $1.85 at the pump!!  What is not to love?   The gouging that has had the consumer bent over at the pump  for at least five years has been broken.  The message in the oil markets today is “lower demand compounded with over supply is garnering lower oil prices.” While politics is at play, the consumer has partially changed.  The consumer can spend or save  elsewhere with more in our pocket – especially if one has a hybrid.   The potential for our government though is to slack off on formulating a diversified, domestic focused energy plan. Unlike 10 years ago, vehicles are more capable – lighter, stronger and energy efficient.   Habits in America and elsewhere have drastically changed the current energy landscape to the point that foreign energy does not have to be America’s main import.   Boone Pickens continues the right message for first a diversified energy plan in America and, with his self interest in mind, a focus on Natural Gas.  As has been the stance since the first post here,  love yourself by buying the most reliable, alternatives that are available.  Your action will be rewarded by admiration and of course self-respect.   The ripple effect will be a consumption driven message to politicians demanding further...
Hybrid Ready – Why Wait?

Hybrid Ready – Why Wait?

It is a September to remember. Apparently the demand for Hybrid cars and trucks is stuck. Elon Musk has opened up his intellectual property for Tesla. Now, anyone with an interest or desire to change the world of transportation can do so off his hard work, know-how and success to date. Making a change in your consumption is a fast and proven means to impacting change. Unlike a few years ago, even when Lubie Love – The Movie, was released in 2009, today we have the ability to own lighter, more fuel efficient vehicles. Today we have the ability to impact our environment positively when we travel. We also have the complete option to stay in one place and have most items that we need or could want delivered directly to our doors. I have recently completed a 10 year personal study on the impact of going carless. Yes I did this while living in a major metropolitan areas (New York City and Denver, Colorado). During this time, fracking has solidified itself as a “viable” alternative to traditional oil exploration. While few consumer vehicles are powered by Natural Gas in America, the major oil companies are sure making an economic bet that it is a sustainable energy source. The outcome is dirty water in places where water is already a scarce resource. States like Colorado are benefiting economically from the fracked economy. It is a current natural resource that farmers and land owners are now able to sell besides their crops and livestock. And being able to feed a family is not something to sneeze about. What anti-Frackers can do to...
