If you plan to replace your car this year, the all electric Leaf is the cheapest used electric car out there - can find some for 8-9K very easily. ►►► _Hybrid industries also DOUBLES THE RANGE OF THE LEAF for only 6.5K._►► ► http://hybridindustries.webs.com/.  The Leaf is the best selling electric car globally, having sold 200,000+ already. You will pay 3 times less on fuel, since electricity is 3 times cheaper (it can be 5-7 times cheaper in some countries though).  Or pay zero if you don't mind driving to a public free charging station and wait 30 minutes for a quick charge of 80 miles.  Nissan replaces your battery for free if your battery has 9 bars instead of the 12 on a new car.  100000 mile warranty goes to your used car when you buy it and you get to use the CAR POOL LANE too when alone, as most Leafs have the sticker on them.  Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and other places like Nissan, Toyota, BMW, etc have free quick charge stations too.  Can do some email, texting and get free charging.   if your workplace offers free electric car charging (many companies do), you no longer have any fuel expense and no trip to quick charge stations or home charging, plus no oil change either, far less maintenance.  Just google the nearest free public charging stations.  The Android App is PlugShare, 90000 charging stations on this network.

Most people charge in the garage while sleeping between 11 pm to 7 am.  http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?t=13008#p295725 explains how to get 23 miles per hour charging at home on a 240 dryer plug with 30 amp circuit.  for example.  You can upgrade the cable the leaf comes with as the link explains for faster at home charging.

If your very old gas car or hybrid is worn out and the time is to buy a newer car - there are many used Leafs and the range is about 80-90 miles depending on how much it was driven.  If you want longer range, you can pay 22k (after rebates) and get a new 2016 leaf that comes with 110 miles. Only the upper models of 2016 leaf offer the extra range. Only Nissan offers an affordable car with such a big range now.  All the other electric cars offer only about 60-90 miles range. 

For a detailed explanation of tremendous service to humanity done when you install solar panels or buy your next car electric, see https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/Svx8uZ8Hk7A.  You not only save the world, but your money too, since electricity is much cheaper than gasoline.  :)

This recipe is awesome. Add fruit, reduce sugar, add maple syrup. Add flax, nuts, oatmeal. So good. 
"A delicious source of fiber! My family have them almost every morning. Great healthy muffins! You may substitute dates for the raisins if you wish."

Pakistan’s parliament becomes first in world to run entirely on solar power

Pakistan’s parliament has become the first in the world to run entirely on solar power. 

Known as the Majlis-e-Shoora, the seat of the government in the country’s capital, Islamabad, is now wholly powered by the sun. 

First announced in 2014, the venture has been funded by the Chinese government as an act of friendship, with the solar power plant costing around £36.5 million. 

The project was officially launched during Chinese president Xi Jinping’s visit last year. 

Now complete, it produces 80 megawatts of electricity, 62 of which are consumed by the national assembly with the remainder going to the national grid, according to Pakistani newspaper Dawn.

Sri Lanka plans 100% renewable energy by 2030  ► http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-details&page=article-details&code_title=140098

Below are some reasons for buying your next car electric, installing solar panels and supporting 100% renewable energy in all nations (via carbon price for example): 

1.  help humanity survive since absorbed CO2 leads to ocean acidification which kills plankton.  Plankton generates 50-80% of oxygen we breathe, so without oxygen we will diehttps://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/gwKRRDiX3nc.

2.  help humanity since elevated CO2 levels were shown to impair brain performance of all future humanshttp://thinkprogress.org/climate/2015/10/26/3714853/carbon-dioxide-impair-brain.  Today in offices with high CO2 levels (like we will have if no action is taken), people's brain performance decreases. 

3.  Help humanity as you no longer generate carcinogenic exhaust, otherwise known as smog, which kills millions of people each yearhttp://goo.gl/jDj0hI and leads to lower IQhttp://goo.gl/alNQIk and autism ► http://goo.gl/66nqwr. Also, note that  http://www.news.cornell.edu/stories/2007/08/pollution-causes-40-percent-deaths-worldwide-study-finds explains that 40% of deaths due to pollution.  Smog kills billions earlier than their normal time.  Coal fired plants generate most human emissions of mercury and arsenic in the air.  

4.  save lives since you reduce heart attacks caused by traffic noise ►  http://goo.gl/Fuhvn.   Electric cars are much quieter.

5.   save humanity from oil wars that destroy the environment and kill countless civilians.  Iraq war trillions could have powered all US with solar/wind ► http://goo.gl/ZqN47.  

6.  you no longer have to change oil (because there is no oil to change) or spark plugs; no more smog check either; electric cars have 60% less parts, so you will go for repairs much less.  Combustion engines are noisy and only 15% efficient;  electric motors are 90% efficient. 

7. reduce heat and AC costs, because electric cars produce 5 times less heat than combustion engine cars per mile, reducing the heat-island effect in citieshttp://www.nature.com/srep/2015/150319/srep09213/full/srep09213.html

8.  bring the end of gas stations that poison the water wells with MTBE or other compounds leading to billions of dollars wasted in cleaning up the well water (example:  $0.4 billion settlement ► http://goo.gl/eKasZD)

9.  save money as you spend 4-8 times less money on "fuel" depending what area of the globe at the current low prices of oil.  If you have enough solar panels,  you get free CLEAN fuel for life, since you charge at home and utilities pay you for energy you put on the grid.  Likewise, Tesla Motors offers free solar ☼ charging for lifehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgk5-eB9oTY?  

10.  save money for noble purposes because electric cars are cheaper than many oil cars after the federal and state rebates:  in Colorado, you can buy a Nissan Leaf for only 15, 000, while in most other states for 18-21, 000.  A Smart EV costs only $12, 000 in Colorado, see http://smartusa.com.  Mitsubishi i-MieV is only $13, 000 in California and $10, 000 in Colorado ► http://www.evworld.com/news.cfm?rssid=31881

11.  Save money since it is cheaper to buy solar panels over 5-12 years than to pay the electric bill without panels - so you save MONEY and the environment - just choose the best deal, they got 12 year loans for 2-3% interest rate - plus after 12 years you get free electricity for the next 30 years or longer if panels last 50 years.  

12.  Electric car batteries and solar panels are far greener than alternatives.  Battery recycling for today's oil car lead batteries is happening at a 97% rate globally. It will be even better for the far safer lithium car batteries.   Lithium Ion batteries are classified by the federal government as non-hazardous waste.  Lithium ion batteries are made from nontoxic lithium carbonate (used in ovenware), nontoxic cobalt oxide (in pottery glaze), nontoxic graphite (in pencils), and a polymer (plastic) membrane. The most toxic components are the electrolyte and lithium cobalt oxide, neither of which are persistent in the environment and both of which are increasingly being replaced by safer compounds.  Wang Chuan-Fu, CEO of BYD, demonstrated the safety of the electrolyte in their lithium ion batteries by drinking it. Zero Motorcycles founder Neal Saiki said that the Lithium Ion batteries they use are safe to eat

Solar is way better than coal, oil or natural gas which spew 100-1000 times more carcinogens in the environment per unit of energy produced, besides far more CO2.  How long does a solar panel system have to operate to recover the energy used for making the panel? Energy payback for rooftop panels is 1-4 years depending on type.   Assuming a life of 30 years for a panel, that means that most energy produced will be free from pollution of any sort ► http://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy04osti/35489.pdf.   

13.  save time, thus money, since you are allowed to use the carpool lanes to avoid traffic if you drive an electric car, in many countries, even if there is only 1 person in the car.  

14. Natural gas and Coal can be replaced with solar-wind immediately:) as a public health priority, especially since they are cheaper in many areas than fossil fuels and storage eliminates the need for sun-wind 24-7 ► http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjNKz8qXRmk.  In China's worst areas, smog makes people live only 4 decades ►  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1DNjJd2YfA.   Coal-fired plants lead to birth defects in China, see the 2 min video ► http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wImJC6xEoU.  In all nations, including USA, people near coal-fired plants often die of cancer at 45 or so, see the 10 min video ► http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZWAQ_3yoj8.  Coal pollution leads to cancer, asthma, autism (mercury), etc. Clean coal doesn't exist ► http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_l0iqdfFyC0.

15.  Germany increased its solar capacity 16000 times between 1990 and 2012https://plus.google.com/110265788529286523789/posts/2K5Ln8zyrqH.  It's possible.   In 2014, Denmark generated 39% electricity from wind ► https://plus.google.com/110265788529286523789/posts/1FraSFPpWBv. For comparison, the current renewables percentage in the US is 17%, India & China 15%,   Germany 31%, Paraguay & Norway & Lesotho & Bhutan 100% (hydro), All Africa 32% (hydro), Japan 11%, Russia 15% (hydro), Mexico 26%, Indonesia & UK 19%, Canada 60% (hydro), Portugal 60% (hydro+wind), Brazil 90% (hydro), Iceland 100% (hydro+geothermal), Ghana 75% (hydro), Spain 45% (wind-solar-hydro),  New Zealand 80% (hydro+geoth+wind).

Starting January 1st 2014, Lancaster, California, became the 1st city in the world to require solar panels on every new home.  How can we make California be the first state in the world to require solar panels on every new home or business in 2018 or so and all cars sold to be zero emissions in 2022 or so?  Tax alcohol, cigarettes, casinos more to give incentives to solar and electric cars? ► 
http://www.greentechmedia.com/articles/read/Lancaster-CA-Becomes-First-US-City-to-Require-Solar

Hawaii requires solar water heating (just warm water, not solar electricity), but California could require solar panels on every existing building AND solar water heating to eliminate the use of natural gas and associated explosions risk, etc.  California already plans (does not require though) all new homes starting from 2020 to be zero emissions ► http://www.greentechmedia.com/articles/read/California-Wants-All-New-Homes-to-be-Net-Zero-in-2020.  UK also had plans to do this and that, but they got postponed.

Global wind power capacity tops nuclear energy for first time

The capacity of wind power generation worldwide reached 432.42 gigawatts (GW) at the end of 2015, up 17 percent from a year earlier and surpassing nuclear energy for the first time, according to data released by global industry bodies.

The generation capacity of wind farms newly built in 2015 was a record 63.01 GW, corresponding to about 60 nuclear reactors, according to the Global Wind Energy Council based in Brussels. The global nuclear power generation capacity was 382.55 GW as of Jan. 1, 2016, the London-based World Nuclear Association said.

Both wind power and nuclear energy are being touted as alternatives to fossil fuel power as they produce fewer greenhouse gases.

Wind energy has captured renewed attention as technological innovation has considerably lowered its generation costs while nuclear power continues to suffer a backlash following the 2011 Fukushima meltdowns.

And wind power is also evolving further into different designs (see http://www.powermag.com/changing-winds-the-evolving-wind-turbine/?printmode=1) as well as applying similar technology underwater (where studies showed that fish actually swim around the slow moving"blades".

Crepes made by authentic French speakers. Just as good as those I've had at higher end French places. This is the only place we visited twice on our vacation to NYC. We had breakfast/brunch at a few other places and paid more for food that wasn't better. Service was fast and polite Coffee wasn't great, but not bad.

Lemon ricotta pancakes were very good. Huevos Rancheros was OK. Coffee was 5/10.

Amazing this place can be as good as it is for the low price.

Service was excellent. the breakfast sausages were very similar to those we had in ireland, very good. The pancakes were mushy and not done, coffee was average. I would try it again, it was OK. Price wasn't bad.
