Please be aware that Clean Electricity, Electric Vehicles, Solar, and Hydrogen Energy developments, potentials and interests are multiplying so fast that I cannot list all of the them..

Science and Clean Electricity
Energy seem to be intersecting at a geometric pace and influence.
( I am reminded of the quotes ;
" All matter is electrical by its nature! " and
"The known universe is 99 % Hydrogen atoms! ")
ALSO,
Special recognition to Google Image Search and many others sites around the World

We Alaskans must focus all of our Energy Resources, Finances, Discussions, and Partnerships on --INDIVIDUAL RESIDENTIAL CLEAN ELECTRICITY AND WATER ENERGY NEEDS (ALONG WITH ALASKA CITIZENSHIP POPULATION CONTROL) ! FINAL_DRAFT_23.pdf http://www.nissanusa.com/leaf-electric-car/#/car/index

If we Alaskans' bet all of our resources on "Carbon Based Fossil Fuels" by 2018, and we are wrong, We lose it all !!

If we bet all on of our resources on "Cook Inlet Clean Hydroelectric Water Projects" with all electric homes by 2014, and we are wrong, We lose nothing!

But; If we are "Cook Inlet water based electricity projects right" by 2014-2018, then we win it all !; Everything !; And then Some,,,More!--ask me ! We can't afford not to do this!---

Associated Press Writer Philip Elliott, Associated Press Writer – Sat Oct 24
A programming overhaul of the White House's Web site has set the tech world abuzz. For low-techies, it's a snooze — you won't notice a thing.
The online-savvy administration on Saturday switched to open-source code meaning the programming language is written in public view, available for public use and able for people to edit.
"We now have a technology platform to get more and more voices on the site," White House new media director Macon Phillips told

… and from the staff at Dot Earth:
President Obama and Steven Chu, the energy secretary, have both called for an energy revolution, including a big push to deploy known nonpolluting energy technology and a sustained effort to build a generation of edge-pushing scientists and engineers seeking big energy breakthroughs to provide energy to a world heading toward nine billion people without overheating the planet.

But the Department of Energy had to send out letters last week discouraging all but a handful of the 3,500 research teams and individuals seeking some of the $150 million available this year for pursuit of “transformational” energy technologies.
One such rejection letter is posted here. The name of the rejected scientist is obscured. He sent it to me, he said, not because he was angry about being denied a shot at funding > more

Time to Think Hydropower
The nation's waterways could provide much more clean energy


http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=time-to-think-hydropower
















*almost FREE,
CLEAN ELECTRICITY AND WATER ARE A FUNDAMENTAL PRIORITY!
A RIGHT AND OBLIGATION WE HAVE TO EACH OTHER as life essential energy necessities FOR OUR HOMES!
(*with conditions and in a reasonable, responsible, and agreed to annual amount per dwelling)

Those who tell you otherwise, do not represent our best interest as a "free enterprise", "freedom loving" and "quality of life" based society!
(pdk 6-10-05)
If our leaders were concerned about our clean electricity and and water based energies for our families they would be offering annual Cash Rewards, Prizes, and Incentives for new clean energy technology ideas to our citizens; And they would require any corporation or entity who has bought, captured, siezed or is holding new technology from the market so as to keep from our homes and family public uses a full public disclosure or prison sentences for hiding the information.
WHY WOULD WE BUILD A ROAD, SCHOOL, CASINO, OR BRIDGE BEFORE WE WOULD BUILD A HYDROELECTRIC POWER PLANT TO HAVE CLEAN ELECTRICITY for our homes FOR 50 YEARS AT NEARLY NO COST?

There are those among us who are lost, Dark Sided, Hell Bent, Cash Whipped, Bound To, and/or Determined, to deny us our residential clean hydroelectric electricity investment, development and ownership rights;
Becasue they want us to pay for their Fossil Fuels by any means possible; Including having us make carbon fueled electricity for them AT OUR EXPENSE! (pdk) -- http://www.ourgas.us/ (20 min+?)
Where is our film on Clean Hydroelectric Electricity for our 800,00 +vehicles and 300, 000 + homes and families of Alaska? Where is our Freedom by "Hydroelectric Residential Clean Electricity "Film?

***INDIVIDUAL AND RESIDENTIAL CLEAN ELECTRICITY AND WATER IS PRIORITY # ONE ! ***

With an all electric auto, home, and an annual allotment of clean electricity we can light up, tool up, heat, grow food, prepare meals, transport, communicate, hold our families safe, maintain our "Quality of Life Lifestyle" and a safe neighborhood - even, (without having a job-almost);
If you have paid for your property and home and live within our Annual Clean Electricity Allotment to each other, Then you are now a FREE PERSON .
Because Clean Electricity Generated Energy Costs are freedom freindly and in harmony with our values.

ITS ALL ABOUT PRIORITIES,

PRIORITIES, AND PRIORITIES ! AND , COMMON SENSE LEADERSHIP
$ $
We citizens must fund the formation of our own new energy technology purchasing companies to buy energy devices for each other to be a free persons..
Our leaders do not seem to want us to have free clean energy to be free.. We must end this clean energy based economic subjugation; Now!

Just look at the following data from the U.S. Department of Energy:
a--U.S. transportation relies on petroleum for 95% of its energy use.
b--Transportation remains our biggest petroleum user, accounting for about 70% of oil

consumption.
c--In the United States, we currently import about 60% of the oil we consume.


WE, AS in THE WORLD, ARE QUICKLY HEADED FOR A total SHIFT TO A CLEAN water ELECTRICITY ENERGY BASED ECONOMY-- ANCHORAGE AND ALASKA CAN LEAD WITHIN 2-4 YEARS WITH OUR VAST WATER RESOURCES IN SUCH CLOSE PROXIMITY (PDK)

Eaton announces major development of plug-in hybrid commercial vehicles
By Jeff Salton
August 18, 2009
President Obama toured Southern California Edison in March 2009 to see the first of the F-550 Eaton-powered plug-in hybrid utility trucks to be placed in service

Eaton Corporation’s truck and electrical businesses will play a major role in producing 378 plug-in hybrid electric power vehicles, the largest commercial hybrid deployment to date in the U.S., thanks to a USD$45.4 million government grant.
Eaton will also provide the electrical charging infrastructure for these vehicles.
In the utility truck version, the plug-in hybrid will be based on the Ford F550 chassis and have a total range of at least 300 miles (480km). It's expected ----
To ensure the system is plausible, vehicles will be able to be recharged by plugging into a standard 120V or 240V electrical outlet, and the trucks will be capable of powering auxiliary equipment and tools while at worksites.

Eaton will work with grant recipient South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and other affiliates, including the Electrical Power Research Institute (EPRI), Altec Industries, Compact Power Inc., Ford Motor Company and Southern California Edison, in the deployment of plug-in hybrid electric commercial vehicles to more than 50 utility and municipal fleets nationwide.

Autonomous Rotorcraft Sniper System packs .338-caliber rifle controlled by Xbox 360 pad



Late last year reports surfaced of a modified radio controlled helicopter equipped with a .45 caliber hand gun, including a video of the RC copter doing target practice with live ammunition (see below). It seems the US Army have been thinking along the same lines, except this one carries a .338 caliber sniper rifle.
Most unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) like the Predator and Reaper are fixed wing aircraft which originally filled a reconnaissance role but have more recently been fitted with 500-lb bombs and Hellfire missles to tackle Hunter-K

The Air Car - zero pollution and very low running costs
« Prev Image 4 of 26 Next »
Article Summary
March 19, 2007 Many respected engineers have been trying for years to bring a compressed air car to market, believing strongly that compressed air can power a viable "zero pollution" car. Now the first commercial compressed air car is on the verge of production and beginning to attract a lot of attention, and with a recently signed partnership with Tata, India’s largest automotive manufacturer
the 68 mph Aircar is incredibly cost-efficient to run – according to the designers, it costs less than one Euro per 100Km (about a tenth that of a petrol car). Its mileage is about double that of the most advanced electric car (200 to 300 km or 10 hours of driving), a factor which makes a perfect choice in cities where the 80% of motorists drive at less than 60Km.

developed countries may be driving electric powered cars by then. This prediction was brought out by a study by the Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology at the University of California at Berkley in which electric cars with “switchable batteries” like that of Shai Agassi from Better Place may comprise as much as 86% of all light vehicles being driven – especially in countries like the USA and Japan.

The Vehicle Big Idea
Bare Necessity Car Friday, August 7th, 2009

We knew from our research that people wanted an extremely efficient vehicle that was also low-cost and green. But what was really eye-opening to me was that people seemed to desire extreme efficiency even if it meant making small sacrifices/trade-offs.

The idea of a back-to-basics, bare-necessity approach to designing a vehicle made sense. So I had two questions: more----

How oil dependent is your state?

Ten states were also singled out by the NRDC for exerting the least amount of effort to wean themselves off oil in the organization's eyes.
"The failure of the 10 worst states to take meaningful action to reduce oil dependence exacerbates the national security and environmental harms associated with our current transportation habits.

These and other states need to be drivers of change," the NRDC said in its report.
The 10 states making the least amount of effort to reduce oil dependence, according to the NRDC report:
West Virginia ,,Idaho ,,Wyoming ,,Mississippi ,,South Dakota ,,Oklahoma ,,Alabama
,,Arkansas ,,North Dakota ,, # 10 Alaska
"Fighting Oil Addiction: Ranking States' Oil Vulnerability and Solutions for Change," a report (PDF) prepared for the NRDC by David Gardiner & Associates, ranks U.S. states in two major ways. One list ranks U.S. states by their dependence on oil, taking in factors like gas prices. The other ranks states' efforts to reduce oil dependence,

Introducing MotionPower™
Harnessing the Energy Beneath Your Tires
--MotionPower™ Kinetic Technology is Simple and Efficient --
The energy I’m referring to is the kinetic energy produced by the 250 million vehicles traveling U.S. roads every day.
The First Law of Thermodynamics states that the amount of energy in the Universe is constant. Energy cannot be added or taken away, created or destroyed.
It can only change from one form to another, like heat to light, chemical energy to electrical energy, or chemical energy to mechanical motion. All that energy can be categorized as either potential or kinetic.
Potential energy is untapped energy-in-waiting that is yet to be put in action, such as the chemicals in a battery, a stretched rubber band, or gravity. Kinetic energy is the energy of motion, such as a bullet fired from a gun or a football that has been kicked. Some forms of kinetic energy are more subtle, like the waves of heat from a burning fire or a speaker that vibrates as sound waves emanate from it.

Climate Change Seen as Threat to U.S. Security

By JOHN M. BRODER
August 8, 2009
WASHINGTON — The changing global climate will pose profound strategic challenges to the United States in coming decades, raising the prospect of military intervention to deal with the effects of violent storms, drought, mass migration and pandemics, military and intelligence ---analysts say.
Such climate-induced crises could topple governments, feed terrorist movements or destabilize entire regions, say the analysts, experts at the Pentagon and intelligence agencies who for the first time are taking a serious look at the national security implications of climate change.

I’m in a dirty old business but I try
Airline chief Richard Branson wants to show that green goals can work, but does he live up to his ideals?
----Virgin Earth Challenge, a £15m prize to find commercially viable green technologies.
----Carbon War Room, an environmental ideas incubator, where he has put in £2m.
http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/article6788581.ece
Now, he thinks he has found the answer.
“Isobutanol is wonderful,” he said. “It doesn’t absorb water, so you can pump it in the same way as petrol. And you can make it from anything. Sugar is good. What if all the sugar now turned into soft drinks were, instead, turned into clean fuel?”
He has sunk several million pounds into a California-based firm called Gevo that makes the fuel.
Branson’s aim is that in five years some or all of Virgin Atlantic’s planes will be running on isobutanol and that he will be selling it to rivals. “I’ll happily take [BA boss] Willie Walsh’s money,” he joked.
Virgin trains, which are already testing bio-diesel, will follow.
----- Many experts are sceptical, however, and say that it will take much longer than five years to make the fuel commercially viable. His detractors add that isobutanol relies on genetic modification technology, which is opposed by environmentalists.----------

IMF puts total cost of crisis at £7.1 trillion
The cost of mopping up after the world financial crisis has come to $11.9 trillion (£7.12 trillion) − enough to finance a £1,779 handout for every man, woman and child on the planet.
08 Aug 2009
The IMF calculations, produced ahead of the two-year anniversary of the crisis, underline the continually mounting cost. Most of the cash has been handed over by developed countries, for whom the bill has been $10.2 trillion, while developing countries have spent only $1.7 trillion − the majority of which is in central bank liquidity support for their stuttering financial sectors.
The countries that make up the G20 grouping will face a combined budget deficit of 10.2pc of GDP in 2009 − the biggest since the Second World War. Although the biggest will be faced by the US, with 13.5pc of GDP, Britain also faces an 11.6pc deficit and Japan a 10.3pc one.

Coal has become the ugly sister of power sources, condemned as old-fashioned, ultra-polluting and excessively costly to mine, given that we have exhausted the most easily accessible supplies

A reader brought to my attention a question that is floating around the internet.
Q: If lightning strikes the ocean, do the marine animals get hurt or killed? (Sault Ste. Marie, Minn

The map below assembled by a crack team of NASA scientists shows the number of flashes per km2 per year. You can see that most of the worlds oceans are at less than 2 strikes per year (light blue). Areas near the coast receive more but typically still less than 10 per year.
However the Gulf of Mexico especially near the Gulf Coast of the US and Florida appears to be quite a hotspot.
What happens to the charge once the lightning makes contact with water?
According to Don MacGorman, a physicist at the National Severe Storms Laboratory in Norman, Oklahoma.
"Basically lightning stays more on the surface of the water rather than penetrating it.

But what about the sound wave? A lightning strike at the surface generates up to 260 decibels at 1m away. That is about twice the decibels of a gun shot or firecracker

Japanese research examines anti-clogging lithium-air battery technology







05Aug











It would be a good problem to solve, since lithium-air technology promises energy storage capacities of about 10 times those of lithium-ion batteries, according to backers
The result, researchers said, could be a car battery that can be “recharged” by removing the used aqueous gel solution and replacing it with fresh solution, as well as adding new cartridges of lithium salts for the anode side. That would make the device more like a fuel cell than a traditional definition of a battery, in which materials aren’t removed when it is recharged.

Nissan gives electric car the go ahead
Battery-powered four-door hatchback unveiled in Japan.
05 Aug 2009

the Nissan Leaf is a lithium-ion battery-powered, four-door family hatchback that will cost a similar amount to a conventional C-segment car of the same size; think Nissan Qashqai, which costs between £14,000 and £22,000.

Nissan's plan is to sell the car but merely rent the battery pack. It claims that when all additional costs are factored in, the cost of running the Leaf will be 20 per cent less than that of an equivalent petrol-powered car

The 24kWh battery is made by Nissan partner NEC and is a sandwich construction mounted under the Leaf's seats and floor giving a range of more than 100 miles and a recharging time using a domestic 200-volt supply of less than eight hours.

Fuel cells in the home?





Japan is big on idea
2,200 homes run on systems now, goal is one-fourth by 2020




Masanori Naruse relaxes at his home in Hiratsuka, Japan, on Feb. 21. His home gets its electricity and hot water from power generated by a hydrogen fuel cell.
Junji Kurokawa / AP
HIRATSUKA, Japan - Masanori Naruse jogs every day, collects miniature cars and feeds birds in his backyard, but he's proudest of the way his home and 2,200 others in Japan get electricity and heat water — with power generated by a hydrogen fuel cell.
The technology —

which draws energy from the chemical reaction when hydrogen combines with oxygen to form water — is more commonly seen in futuristic cars with tanks of hydrogen instead of gasoline, a key culprit in pollution and global warming.

Tomoko Naruse, 40, initially worried the thing would explode, given all she had heard about the dangers of hydrogen.
The entire process produces less greenhouse gas per watt than traditional generation. And no energy is wasted transporting the electricity where it's actually going to be used.

Despite repeated statements pinpointing 2015 for delivering fuel cell cars, automakers acknowledge two major hurdles in reaching that goal: high costs and lack of infrastructure. As Andreas Truckenbrodt, chief executive of the Automotive Fuel Cell Cooperation—a Daimler-Ford venture to advance fuel cells for vehicles—said, “Fuel cells work fine. The number one focus is now on cost reductions, and we know how to get there. Do you really think we would be spending billions if we were waiting for a miracle?”

Is It Time for An Open-Source Car?
July 27, 2009


In the Internet age, a company with limited funds and no track record can build a successful business with nothing more than a good idea and some powerful technology. It's not easy, but it can be done.
The same entrepreneurial spirit is coming to the auto industry. As cars become more and more like high-tech gadgets on wheels, a crop of new companies is trying to put “open source” or “crowdsourcing” concepts to use in making the next great hybrid, plug-in, or fuel cell car.
Three of these companies—Riversimple, OScar, and Local Motors—are up and running, but far from the practical step of actually building cars, much less becoming viable businesses.
Riversimple, an English company, was founded by ex-motorsports gearhead Hugo Spowers. Its Morgan Lifecar, a lightweight fuel cell vehicle that powers four independent electric wheel motors, was shown at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show.

Electric Car Maker
Expects Market to Heat Up
By Todd Woody
Nissan on Saturday night introduced the Leaf, a battery-powered four-door hatchback with a range of 100 miles and a top speed of 87 miles an hour. The Japanese automaker described the Leaf, which is scheduled to be available in the United States market in the latter half of 2010, as the first real-world electric car.
That must have rankled Th!nk, the Norwegian electric car company formerly owned by Ford. The Think City, a highway-capable two-seater with a 112-mile range, began rolling off the assembly line in December 2007.
But the company halted production late last year as in the wake of the global economic crisis. Think subsequently obtained new financing and announced last week that it would begin selling electric drivetrains powered by lithium-ion batteries from the American manufacturer EnerDel.
Its first big customer:
the Japanese postal service, which will convert some of its 22,000-vehicle fleet to electric drive.

Researchers set sail for the
Great Pacific Garbage Patch
By Paul Rogers

08/03/2009
Hoping to learn more about one of the most glaring examples of waste and environmental pollution on earth, a group of scientists will set sail from San Francisco today to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, a massive vortex of floating plastic trash estimated by some researchers to be twice the size of Texas.
From 1996 to 2006, the NOAA removed 1.1 million pounds of derelict fishing gear from the reefs and beaches of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, a chain of mostly uninhabited atolls and islands that stretch 1,500 miles from Kauai to Midway, near the garbage patch.
The beaches on those islands, because of their proximity to the currents known as the North Pacific Gyre, often are littered with cigarette lighters, fishing line, floats, toothbrushes, bottle caps and other floating junk, some of which is decades old.
In the central Pacific, there are up to six pounds of marine litter to every pound of plankton, and roughly 46,000 pieces of plastic litter are floating on every square mile of the oceans, according to a 2006 report from the United Nations Environment Programme.
"This stuff is ubiquitous," Bamford said. "Plastics break into smaller and smaller pieces, but they don't decompose."

Ceramatec have created the disk, which can hold up to 20-kilowatt hours
A small disc could be the solution for the efficient and cheap storage of the sun’s energy. A Utah-based company has found a new way to store solar energy – in a small ceramic disk which can store more power for less. Researchers at Ceramatec have created the disk, which can hold up to 20-kilowatt hours, enough to power an entire house for a large portion of the day.
“These batteries switch the whole dialogue to renewables,” said Daniel Nocera, professor of energy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology who sits on Ceramatec’s advisory board. “They will turn us away from dumb technology, circa 1900 — a 110-year-old approach — and turn us forward.”

he told the LA Times that a car that "you can dump water right in. It will have a battery storage system like a hybrid and that will be used with electrolysis to convert water to hydrogen right on-site and you'll be able to run it with water and it'll be fully self-contained, self-sufficient," is one year away. ??? wow!?

Federal Grant to Build Honeybee Habitats
As pollinating insects like bumblebees and honeybees are dying of mysterious colony collapse disorders, federal scientists are scrambling to save this beneficial insect. By building hedgerows and windbreaks filled with bee-friendly trees, shrubs, and grasses, federal scientists hope they can grow the bee population in California and help farmers grow more prolific fruit trees and vegetable plants. Colony collapse disorder has devastated much of the world, reducing yields in California and forcing Indian and Chinese farmers to hand-polinate their crops. Trillions of bees have already been lost to colony collapse disorder, which is thought to revolve around food scarcity, environmental stress, and pesticide use.

New Taser device can shock 3 people without reload


Mon Jul 27, 7:38 pm ET
FOUNTAIN HILLS, Arizona – A Taser stun gun, capable of shocking three people without being reloaded, was unveiled Monday in front of hundreds of law enforcement officers who applauded after watching six rounds of the barbed wire fired at metal targets.
Like the older models, the new stun gun shoots two barbed wires that deliver about 6 watts of electrical current for several seconds, temporarily immobilizing people from a distance. Only the new device has three sets of wires.
The device, which can hit people up to 35 feet away, looks like a bulky gun but weighs less than two pounds. It's about 2.5 inches wide and seven inches tall.
While the new Taser stun gun can be used against three people, it also can target the same person more than once. Smith said each barb would deliver a separate shock.
The device also will allow for greater accountability because it has sensors that measure each discharge, Smith said, and that data can then be downloaded and analyzed.------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There Will be No Customer Access to High Voltage on the Chevy Volt, but it Can Jump Start Another Car May 18th, 2009
The Volt is different than traditional cars on many levels beyond its electric drivetrain. One way is that its battery can store 16 kwh of energy, enough to power the average US household for about half a day. People ask if they will be able to access that energy to power their home during a blackout -----Lithium-ion batteries degrade over time. There’s no getting around this fact. GM is going out of its way to pamper the Volt’s pack so as to guarantee up to 40 miles of pure electric range even at 10 years or 150,000 miles of driving.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------http://www.reuters.com/article/latestCrisis/idUSLJ563374
Jet turbine could power hybrid electric car
Jul 21, 2009
ETV Motors, a private company based just outside Tel Aviv that has raised some $12 million in investments, says it has developed a micro-turbine engine to act as an on-board charger and a high-density battery that can power a vehicle for about 60-80 km (35-50 miles) on one charge. ETV Motors says its batteries will power a car for more than twice as long, and with its on-board charger, will not be dependent on complicated electric charging infrastructure, though the car will be plug-in compatible, the company said.

The Molokai plant, proposed by Jetstream Wind Inc., would use electricity from wind or solar or a combination of the two to separate water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen would then be burned in a turbine - similar to what is used in a natural-gas-fired power plant - and would generate enough electricity to power 6,000 homes and businesses, the company said. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The LED light itself is adjustable, so you can point it in any direction you want. As an additional safety feature, the outside edges of the ECOlight will change to red when the temperature goes above 41 degrees Celsius (105.8 degrees Fahrenheit), or go blue when the temperature goes below 25.5 degrees Celsius (78 degrees Fahrenheit).

Maya 300: The Electric Car ExxonMobil Wants You To Drive


Wed Jun 24 2009,
The Maya 300 is the result of collaboration between Maya, battery supplier Electrovaya, and technology backer ExxonMobil and is currently heading for fleet sales and possibly an urban car sharing scheme in Baltimore, Maryland. Its Electrovaya lithium ion batteries utilize ExxonMobil's co-extruded separator film to pack energy into the smallest possible size yielding a 12 kWh battery with a 60 mile range or a 27 kWh battery good for 120 miles. The car is motivated via a 15 kW permanent magnet motor (that's a stampede of 20 HP to the rest of us). Recharge times are 6-8 hours on 110V and half that at 220V.

Japan’s Oil, LNG Imports Fall on Fuel, Power Demand
Posted on Jul. 23, 2009


Japan’s oil imports fell in June for an eighth month as refiners and power utilities continued production cuts because of the global recession, slashing crude requirements in the world’s second-largest economy.
Japan shipped in 15.02 million kiloliters, or about 3.15 million barrels a day, of crude oil last month, down 19.1 percent from a year earlier, a preliminary finance ministry trade report released in Tokyo today shows. Imports of liquefied natural gas declined 9 percent in June to 5.16 million metric tons.
Ten regional utilities led by Tokyo Electric Power Co. reduced output last month by 5.6 percent on sluggish demand from factories, according to the Federation of Electric Power Companies, reducing their use of oil and LNG, the two main fuels for thermal power plants. Nippon Oil Corp. and Idemitsu Kosan Co. lowered operating rates at plants in response to weaker demand for automotive and industrial fuels.
