I think that SeaTac Airport has an #ALPR system

They're governed by Port of Seattle, right? A governing body I don't really understand at all.

Seattle  - 
 
Fossil fuel and electric vehicle infrastructure in Seattle

The Port of Seattle has a few dozen charging stations served by 110-volt outlets in the parking garage which can recharge a vehicle with enough energy to reach Seattle in about three hours. There are no quick-charging stations at the airport that deliver the same charge in minutes which means that anyone who hopes to make a quick return must rely on #DCQC  stations at various automobile dealerships (CarPros in Burien or Younkers in Renton).

Placing a quick-charging station in the cell-phone waiting lot would enable zero-emission ground transportation to more easily reach the airport.

Currently all of the EV quick-charging stations in Seattle save one are malfunctioning and in some state of disrepair. The #BlinkNetwork  is responsible for most of these stations.

Climate Change News Stories  - 
 
This image of snow being dumped on the starting line of the Iditarod sled dog race is powerful. I wonder what percentage of Alaskans are convinced of the reality of climate change.
 
Is Anchorage the new Seattle? Alaska is warming at more than twice the pace of any other state, most notably in the winter. The last few years have seen huge fluctuations in weather, with a clear warming trend, causing many to question the future of the Alaskan lifestyle.

+Delta Hranek they moved the starting point of the race:

An unseasonably warm winter has left parts of Alaska's Iditarod trail without snow, exposing grass and gravel and forcing the famous dogsled race to move 225 miles north.

Opening ceremonies in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race kick off Saturday in Anchorage. When the race begins Monday, mushers will cross the starting line in Fairbanks instead of Willow, the traditional starting point.

It's the second time in the race's 43-year history that the starting point has moved from Willow to Fairbanks because of weather-related issues, an Iditarod spokesperson said. The first time was in 2003.

While cities across the northeastern United States have seen record snowfall this winter, Alaska received less snow than usual. Anchorage collected only 20 inches of snow this season, compared with a seasonal average of 60 inches.

A local recycled computer store (REPC.com) installs Android on computers as a free operating system. It's interesting to see an interface that's designed for mobile phones and tablet computers usable with a mouse and keyboard. I wonder how many people continue to use these systems as is. Are there any stats on that? +Android +Google

+lee colleton It's not a bad machine, this, but what I wanted to know was whether it matters that I am using an AMD processor rather than Intel. In any case, I thought they were talking about running Android on a PC, not the SDK.

Visiting SeaTac Airport for public testimony regarding lease of Seattle's Port Terminal 5 to Foss who will in turn host Shell's Arctic drilling fleet

I had a chat with Steven who took an interest in my fancy eyewear.

+Dave Laur I pulled up next to this Prius and asked if it plugged in. The driver said that it did not and I responded with my best EV grin.

I took a few pictures of electric cars on a visit to Olympia this morning. There was also a big truck which apparently runs on #B20 which I suppose is owned by a farmer or perhaps a legislator who represents them.  

All in all, it was a very green visit to the state capitol this #StPatricksDay

A tale of two +Nissan  #LEAF  cars, both plugged into #Blink  chargers. The silver LEAF had finished charging and is blocking other electric cars from using the spot (such as that nearby +Chevy Volt driver)

For an unmanaged lot, it's difficult to maximize the use of electric vehicle chargers. People may be unwilling or unable to shift their vehicle into a different parking spot once their charge has completed. They may also be unaware of the laws around the use of EV chargers, which require vehicles to be moved if they are not actively charging.

What is the right thing to do in this situation?

What is that law? Maybe carry a stack of reminders that one can leave on the offending car to let them know?
