A great new video on energy from +Joe Hanson as part 2 of his three part series. Go take a look... (And thanks for the shout out!)
 
NEW VIDEO! Will we ever run out of oil? And considering this whole climate change business,, should we wait that long before we stop using it?

Enjoy part 2 of this special series on energy! Special thanks to +Sheril Kirshenbaum and UT-Austin's Webber Energy Group for helping me put this together.

Its no much anti vaxxers for everyone..its just self determination and the right of parents to choose what is best for their children. This is a most absurd  attempt to similarise totally wrong issues against a very real and valid argument for caustion if not against all vaccines then against some.  Do you want your teenage children vaccinated against  say....Aids? It is coming! and there will be a lot of heartache when  enforced legislatively to vaccinate we all become the guinea pigs of the government.,

How do you feel about the Keystone XL project? +Michael Webber and I have a new article that might surprise you. Since Canada's oil sands will be produced regardless of U.S. policy, this pipeline is likely the cleanest and most efficient option and it aligns well with our economic and national security priorities. Before you weigh in, take a look at our rationale...

That is a reasonable concern +Ilyanna Kreske, but as we point out in the piece, it’s important to remember that there are already tens of thousands of miles of pipelines transporting oil and gas across the country, including over sensitive aquifers. This pipeline would not introduce a new problem, and therefore, doesn’t significantly increase our risk of water contamination.

We should be focused on working to take strong precautions in order to keep sensitive aquifers safe from all of them, rather than oppose a specific, single project. This means raising standards for safety inspections and pipeline integrity – not just for Keystone XL, but all pipelines in the ground. A fee imposed on operators would help to fund regular inspections throughout the lifetime of this pipeline and others as well.

Headed to ATX to study LBJ's presidency with the Presidential Leadership Scholars. Listening to The Beatles to get my head into that tumultuous decade. ‪#‎plscholars‬

A lot of people are comparing today's politics to 1992, but I think a stronger comparison might be made to 1967.

My dear friend, Duke's Brian Hare, launched this important Change.org petition to tell New York Blood Center they can't test on chimpanzees and then abandon them to die of dehydration and starvation in Liberia. NYBC profited from these animals for decades, publicly proclaimed a commitment to their lifetime care, and has now stopped all funding and abandoned them in Africa. Add your name. I did.
Sixty six captive chimpanzees in Liberia, Africa have been abandoned by the New York Blood Center (NYBC)—an organization with assets of $450 million and major corporate partners. The chimpanzees are in danger of dehydration and starvation. Please sign the petition to urge NYBC to reinstate funding for this chimpanzee colony before it’s too late! For years, NYBC used these chimpanzees in medical research, infecting many of them with hepatitis ...

43% of men say they are knowledgeable on energy issues, while just 20% of women say the same, according to the UT Energy Poll. Why? More on energy and gender next week...

Its only that women are ignorant and they do not explore their potentials to the fullest.

The world much more desperately needs more scientifically literate conservatives.  We need pseudo Christianity to be replaced by a doctrine of accepting reality.  We also need more women in STEM fields.  So, I say market to Christian conservative women.  It would probably work.

We have had two great experiences with Bill and Charlie's. In the first instance, they replaced a tire without trying to make us buy a set of two or four when it wasn't necessary. The second time, they were able to reset my dashboard and didn't charge us a fee. These guys are honest and it's been a better experience than any other place we've taken our Subaru. Everyone in service was helpful, informative, and very nice. As a woman, I also appreciate that no one seems to speak down to me, as has been my experience at other car service shops. If we could give them 6 stars, we would. Go here.
