The Size of the Universe

This is just another in a line of “We are not that big in the whole scheme of things”. I wouldnt like to be an early explorer trying to circumnavigate some of these huge planets or stars.

Purchase green computers using “EPEAT”

EPEAT is a system which allows buyers to make informed decisions regarding the environmental impact of computer desktops, laptops and monitors before they go ahead and purchase them.

“EPEAT evaluates electronic products in relation to 51 total environmental criteria, 23 required criteria and 28 optional criteria. To qualify for registration as an EPEAT product, the product must conform to all the required criteria.”

“Products are also ranked in EPEAT according to three tiers of environmental performance – Bronze, Silver, and Gold. All registered products must meet the required criteria, and achieve Bronze status. Manufacturers may then achieve a higher level EPEAT “rating” for products by meeting additional optional criteria, as follows”:

EPEAT environmental rankings


Meets all 23 required criteria

Meets all 23 required criteria plus at least 50% of the optional
criteria

Meets all 23 required criteria plus at least 75% of the optional
criteria

At 28 watts it seems to me to be a worthwhile investment… if anybody has bought the ‘Ionmax Silent Ionic Tower Air Purifier UV’ I/we would be grateful for your input.

Improbable Collapse: The Demolition of our Republic


I’ve posted this film so that our readers/listeners/viewers can make up up their own mind, Yes we have our opinions, but I really do believe that it is your opinions that matter. The USA is meant to be a Democratic Republic isn’t it?, and here in My Country Australia, we are a federation, a constitutional monarchy and a parliamentary democracy

In reality the Queen of England almost never gets involved in the running of our country (The last real time being 1975 When Gough Whitlam was sacked), So shouldn’t Australian citizens be afforded the rights of a democratic republic as well, shouldn’t the USA, Australia and all other Democracies be given a say in the running of their countries, It’s our democratic right!!!

Democracy
noun

a system of government by the whole population or all the eligible members of a state, typically through elected representatives.

Republic
noun

a state in which supreme power is held by the people and their elected representatives, and which has an elected or nominated president rather than a monarch.

I’m not sure about you, but I cannot say that our society, our country, our people are afforded their entitlements, their rights based on the fact that we are supposed to be living in a Democratic republic. We are not offered any resemblance of this, we the people don’t get a say in the running of our country. So my question is Why Not?.

And if Why Not?, what do we do about it, WE PROTEST RIGHT?, Well that’s becoming easier said than done, our rights to protest are being eroded as well, but that’s another story which I’ll look at shortly in a future post.

Back to the Video

My take?, It is just another example of self serving organisations running their own agendas and the citizens just having to “suck it up”.

What’s it all about;

“the first film to look at the events of September 11, 2001 from a scientific perspective.”

Car Runs On Air



Video: YouTube

This little Air car reminds me a bit of the Citroën 2CV, which was and possibly still is, that ugly little underpowered French car, which strangely enough was quite popular. In defense of the French, the Citroëns as a rule have always been very innovative, but as with most rules, the 2CV I still think was the exception that makes the rule.

I believe that this Air car could well be an answer to pollution, global warming and commuting, it’s specs are pretty good, and to be honest I can’t see why it would not be so. Their claims are that it will do up to 200 miles, 60 mph and it can apparently be charged in something like 3 minutes… these are all very good and believable numbers, and it could do this with virtually zero emissions, especially if it’s compressed gas comes from using photovoltaic solar cells to power the air compressors.

However, the ‘perpetual motion’ thing is marketing doing what marketing does, make glib, uninformed statements which are ignorant of the laws of physics.
