  • The hottest electric cars leaver winter drivers out in the cold

    12/16/2013 12:58:09 PM PST · by Impala64ssa · 64 replies
    Engineering breakthroughs like the Tesla Model S may be burning up the electric car market (figuratively and literally), but they’re leaving drivers cold and under-powered in the face of Old Man Winter. Cold temperatures have adverse effects on batteries, slowing down the incoming and outgoing flow of energy and inevitably losing some in the process. The 250-mile average range of an electric car in normal climate conditions can see its performance reduced by 70-miles on a single charge in average winter conditions. The colder it gets, the shorter than range. Not only that, the average winter driver tends to turn...

    AS we mark the 38th Earth Day tomorrow, it's worth noting that this secular "religion" has led many Americans to fervently believe some things that just aren't true. Environmentalist values plainly deserve a place in making public policy. But we shouldn't be guided by myths that are provably false. Yet a recent survey by Zogby International for the Manhattan Institute found that, when it comes to energy and the environment, the public is more inclined to believe myths than to have a firm grasp of basic facts. Polling 1,000 average Americans on assorted energy and environmental issues, we found a...

    PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - Environmentalists want emergency federal protection for the Casey's June beetle, one of the rarest insects in the world that lives on only 600 acres south of the city and is threatened by the desert building boom. In a petition to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Sierra Club and the Center for Biological Diversity listed two building projects already under way in beetle habitat and five more in development. They want emergency protection under the Endangered Species Act. "Unless we take immediate action to preserve its habitat, Casey's June beetle is history," said David Wright,...
  • Fast-Food Nation Is Taking Its Toll on Black Bears, Too

    It's no secret that America's adults are getting fat and sedentary. Its children are becoming couch mini-potatoes. Even its pets are overweight. Now the fast-food lifestyle is getting to the bears, too. A study of black bears in the Sierra Nevada has found that those animals that live in and around cities and towns are less active than those in wilderness, spending less of their time foraging for food and fewer days in their winter dens. These and other behavioral changes are making the bears heavier. Advertisement The culprit, say the study's authors, Dr. Jon P. Beckmann and Dr. Joel...

    COMMUNISM IN AMERICA: Ann Coulter recently spoke about Joseph McCarthy and called him an American patriot and prophet who was way ahead of his time. Mr. McCarthy recognized Communist infiltration into our society and political system and the danger this posed to the future of the U.S. He was demonized and discredited. Why? Because he was exposing Communism in America. To those who believe that the threat of Communism disovled with the breakup of the United Soviet Socialist Republic, that is what they want you to believe. Communism is alive and well IN AMERICA TODAY. Our universities have been taken...

    COMMUNISM IN AMERICA: Ann Coulter recently spoke about Joseph McCarthy and called him an American patriot and phrophet who was way ahead of his time. Few people paid any attention to her comments while many screamed foul but I give her credit because Mr. McCarthy recognized Communist infiltration into our society and political system and the danger this posed to the future of the U.S. He was demonized and discredited. Why? Because he was exposing Communism in America. To those who believe that the threat of Communism disovled with the breakup of the United Soviet Socialist Republic, that is what...
