Some problems can never be solved – will clean energy be one of them?

There are many things we do every day that are plain stupid. Things that are dangerous to our short term or long term well being, or our very life. And we are quite comfortable living that way if the odds of harm seem low enough.   There are countless examples around every day, if you […]

A butterfly’s wings might start a tornado, but that doesn’t mean the energy world works that way

A butterfly’s wings might start a tornado, but that doesn’t mean the energy world works that way

The butterfly effect, a function of chaos theory, speculates that the flapping of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil can eventually cause a tornado in Texas. Some theorists demonstrated how this would be, that the wind vortices generated were necessary to get the (much bigger) snowball rolling.   This isn’t a particularly useful theory because it’s not […]

  This is a surely a strange topic for an energy related website, but in some respects not at all. A post from several months ago was dedicated to the very real but intangible effects of positive energy . It’s not an untapped resource but definitely under utilized. So it was a pleasant surprise beyond belief […]
