How can we reach a world where energy generation is carbon free? One solution being proposed is to electrify everything.

One hundred years ago the world changed - transitioning from the horse and buggy to the automobile. Most of the cars in that age were electric, relying on big bulky batteries for power. Henry Ford and Charles Kettering doomed those early electrics (you will have to listen to find out how). General Motors revived it in the 1990's, then killed it aga…
 
The world is teetering on the edge of disaster. The Great Depression – the Cold War – 9-11 – Katrina – the 2008 Economic Meltdown – Covid... Doesn't it make sense to build yourself a bunker, stock it with beans and ammunition, and wait out the Zombie Apocalypse?

The report was a call to action, warning that it should be seen as a “red alert for our planet” and that “2021 is a “make or break year” to confront the global climate emergency. But haven't we heard this all before and it seems that people and governments are co…

So why is it not the same with death? In the not-so-long-ago past, death was a community affair. Friends and relatives would take charge of …
