IEA project saves 150,000 gallons of fuel annually

Almost an entire year has gone by from when this project was just a concept to the completion of installation –but it’s finally happened. The complete environmental impact projections for this project is that it will save 30,000-150,000 gallons of gasoline each year and reduce carbon gas emissions by 600,000-3,000,000 pounds per year.

Although I put a lot of time into this, it would have been absolutely impossible to do this without the help and time of a […]

The Myth of the American Energy Crisis

The flier containing information about an upcoming presentation was titled Myth of the American Energy Crisis. I thought to myself this is a catchy title for sure and it includes the word “energy,” so I had better clear that date on my calendar so I could check out what I was hoping would be a brilliant presentation on energy and politics by Mark Chapin Johnson, PhD at the Center Club in Orange County, California on September 12, 2012. It turned out that I was not disappointed. The bottom line according to Dr. Johnson is that virtually everything we know and think about the merits of ethanol is actually the opposite […]

While in El Salvador, fourteen other […]
