Novel Uses Of Energy – People are always thinking

To finish up the week of silly (stop this skit) uses of energy, we bring you the life sucking essence, the Data Center. Or really big computers using really really big amounts of power. Data Centers Explore Novel Ways … Continue reading

Newt Gingrich Plans To Save The Earth – Maybe the silliest use of energy yet

So silly in fact that the price of the book has fallen from $20 to $2.39.  This from a man who does not believe in global warming. This from a man who helped start the “Drill Here, Drill Now” movement. … Continue reading
