Two things are on my radar today that merit mentioning here. The first is that Tesla (electric car manufacturer) has agreed to a deal to manufacture a new sedan in California (click here). The new vehicle will seat 5 passengers, and have a range of 225 miles. Why am I excited? This vehicle has enough… Read More

Since the banking industry has been declared as being in a mess this week, I thought a post about the banking industry would make sense. Over on The Green Skeptic, there is an article about the banking industry building “green” buildings (click here). In fact, there is a local branch of Chase Bank in Weatherford… Read More

The text is from the NIV, found at A song. A psalm of the Sons of Korah. For the director of music. According to mahalath leannoth. A maskil of Heman the Ezrahite. 1[a] [b] O LORD, the God who saves me, day and night I cry out before you. 2 May my prayer come… Read More

Today as I was walking from my car to the library at SWBTS, I realized that this morning was probably a lot like the mornings in the garden of creation. The cool of the morning glides against my face, and gives me energy in my lungs. The sun glows behind the clouds. It’s warm tones… Read More

The picture is one of their badges… They have a store where you can buy energy saving devices, or… Read More

In this essay he lists alternatives to treat the world in terms of a sustainable approach. He first mentions viewing the world in terms of regions. This… Read More

Evidently most Brits are only “green” on a part-time basis. The article which details this can be found here. Interestingly, the farther up the scale of being committed to an earth conscious lifestyle, the more likely the people are to take long flights. Why does this seem odd to me? Long flights are supposed to… Read More

I ran across this blog entry called “eating local saves the planet“. It sounds good to me. I understand the logic. My fast food costs tons of extra pollution in transportation, processing etc. It also requires paying for extra jobs like driving trucks, packaging, etc. In other words, there is a lot more “waste” in… Read More

Free market economy shouldn’t include government loans to bad businesses! The big 3 will be pushing for government loans this week, which they claim will help them through these dark times of the economy. But is the economy really in dark times (see the GDP growth projections) or is this just a market correction to… Read More
