Santa Monica 2016 is over and left great impressions, again.

Find out more about Pavemint, and why you should know about it. How about a free electric car ride with WaiveCar?
It’s hard to imagine that Alt Car Expo 2016 has been around for about a decade. Much has changed since then and while Alt Car Expo no longer brings too many local transportation oddities and geniuses, it has attracted many of the biggest players in the electric vehicle and renewable energy fields. This year was no

How was the tour?

Distorted Reality Filters, or wishful thinking?

“Electrification is currently the most popular and best solution but it’s also short-term. Honda still believes hydrogen and the fuel cell technology will be the ultimate propulsion for the long-term future, but electric is very important to fill that gap until that time for the mass market.”

Honda Civic development leader Mitsuru Kariya.

Really, battery operated vehicles are a short-term solution?

Yes, but it's a long time in the making, always around the corner, while battery technology has advanced I feel to the point that technology won't have much to offer.

Manufacturing problems. Compression problems. Infrastructure problems. Storage problems. It seems to have more obstacles not resolved yet compared to pure battery operated vehicles.

We should spend our funds on proven technology today that show a very real progress, not something that could work in 30 years. I don't think these folks in their offices really grasp the concept of priorities, time and the present moment :)

What site do you use when looking for airfares?

Reason 2 why I love my +GenZe e-101:

Let's be practical. 46 Lbs., detachable battery in front frame, about 20 mile range for $1,499. Enough said!

Anyone interested in one, or in a test ride in the Long Beach greater area, please contact me.

Zen Vermilion Outhouses:

Fushan Yuan said to Daowu Zhen:

The case of those who, while their study has not yet arrived on the Way, still flash their learning and run off at the mouth with intellectual understanding, using eloquence and sharpness of tongue to gain victories, is like outhouses painted vermilion—it only increases the odor.

I like this Public Bank Institute newsletter. It's always interesting to see what solutions pop up when a system desperately tries to slow down changes.

Lightening batteries is crucial, but giving the same treatment to electric motors shouldn't be overlooked. Canadian NanoXplore got $3.3M from the government to commercialize lighter and more efficient components for electric motors. Once again, graphen will play a major role instead of metal shall do the trick.

The Japanese government's insistence on developing hydrogen fuel cells instead of battery technology is a huge gamble not shared by other countries and carmakers.

The Korean government and industry leaders are investing 43bn won, $38.4M aiming to double EV battery energy density down to 300 Wh/kg by 2020. The goal is to reach 400 km, 250 miles on one charge.

Expensive, difficult to create, store, deliver, use. Yeah, a lot of obstacles that haven't been answered yet.

I would say beyond amazing when it comes to Nuci. The story is sad but it serves to help a generation of young musicians often left to follow their passion sometimes to detrimental results. Nuci inspired me. A place where young musicians can come rehearse, buy affordable music instrument but most of all, have access to affordable healthcare and health professionals. Simply amazing and inspiration to us all. Hope to see more hubs like these around the country and worldwide.

When you call, they quote different prices, $82 to 97 and no guaranty on the price. Close to $20 without knowing until you get there. Nice.
