I would like to personally thank Sydni and Dallas for continuing to post information for the benefit of us all.

There can be nothing more important than protecting our only home, even IF there was a drop of doubt that was true for the denialists to hang onto, everything needs to throughly investigated, for so far as we can tell, we would not get a second chance.

( I thought about the two of you because my neighbor still wants to believe the misinformation that the human impact is minimal if it even exists) I gave him clear and concise information ( most of which gained from links you have posted) to refute his exaggerated claims.
NASA said that Mars had melting ice caps??? WTF???!!! Where do you get your news? Even if there was ice and is was melting, it is an entirely different planet, with a different location, with a different atmosphere...I mean he is a nice guy but sometimes he makes my head hurt.

I loved these videos and can't believe that these kids are so talented and involved in promoting this important global issue. Wow. My sons are great on the computer, so maybe next year I'll convince them to take on this challenge. What a great project. Thanks for posting.

The guy has a huge heart and comes across as very sincere and reasonable. I really respect his approach. Thanks again, Sydni.

Thanks very much for sharing the No Impact Man blog, Sydni.

Does this movie, No Impact Man, have anything to do with the article I read a few months back where a man stored all his family's trash in the basement for a year?

After my last trash collecting adventure at my local park, I thought, if only every other person would pick up the careless slack of others, we would negate most of the harm done to our own home.
Surely it would be best if everyone used their brain and thought of the consequences of their actions, but I'd settle for every other person being, "The good guy"...We do not need to say we do more for our earth, because you selfish people can already see that.

Very much so, and I agree, short of quantum physicists discovering some new strange nature of particles that might help us "cheat" and extract energy from a fairly common natural phenomenon, hydrogen is the way to go. I am really truly skeptical about some of the claims being made, but I am not so skeptical that I am not willing to try them out for myself especially if it frees us from carbon fuels... (call me a romantic, but I just think thermodynamics is too formidable a force and we too juvenile in our understanding at this point).

Your comment doesn't seem ass-like at all, Joshua.

Clean Energy just refers to energy production which has a minimal environmental impact. Solar, wind, water, and depending on your views on the issue, even nuclear are clean alternatives. Nuclear leaves lots of nasties but they sort of containable. The US just dumps theirs in Mexico :)

You are probably thinking on clean 'Energy Vectors'. Gasoline is the most common EV. Think of it as a way of transporting energy. We use energy to change oil into gasoline, which is like a portable energy source. The ultimate energy vector would be hydrogen, it's waste products would be oxygen and water. Unfortunately, there's still some problems we need to deal with before making the jump to H (imagine changing every engine, every gas station, every gas tank) . Ethanol and methanol are good intermediate steps, as they can use the same infrastructure gasoline does, but they are still a bit dirty.

In the long run (I don't think less than 30 years), however, H is the only way to go. We don't even need to burn it. Fuel Cell technology is good enough to move cars as of now. Google it up, it's like magic, it just produces electricity by chemically separating the protons and electrons of H; very cool stuff (so it's not magic, it's science). Oh, yeah. Hydrogen can be produced by simple electrolysis. Using electric current (from wind, solar, hamsters running in a wheel) to separate water into H and O2. Fuel cells just reverse it. It's not efficient (and never will be) but we're working on it.
Loooong comment. Hope it was useful.
Comment by Joshua on June 18, 2009 at 11:24pm
What exactly do you mean by clean energy? Sorry, I just feel like an ass today... I agree that biofuels are a much better alternative to gasoline, but they are far from clean... As of right now, I know everyone is talking about the possibility of using bacteria or yeast someday to create ethanol, but right now, the most popular method seems to be enzymatic pyrolysis... far from clean... anyway, just had to make that point. It is an improvement... When will we be able to invent some kind of heat resistant transformer coil that will allow us to turn truly clean wind and solar into high enough levels of heat radiation to replace the modern technology of burning things??? Not only is it pollutant and wasteful, but it just seems barbaric. IMnsHO...

Just finished watching home. Saying that I am deeply moved and even more deeply depressed does not do that effort justice.
I will have to sleep on it and write a more detailed debriefing of my emotions and needed actions.

One thing is for sure, every human on earth would benefit from seeing it.

What also amazes me is that Mr.Vujicic is extremely religious and thanks this god of his...I don't know to cry or scream about it.

Still, I thank you for posting the video Dallas, still motivational even if he is delusional.
