Electric cars, Agassi's plan to get the world off oil

It almost sounds too simple to be true, but a car with a ‘switchable’ battery makes absolute sense, why not have an interchangeable battery? Nothing other than co-operation is stopping this, however, co-operation is generally the key to getting anything done and it is often in short supply where commercial interests are concerned.  However, if the Israeli government has anything to do with it, the obstacles will be removed.

New transportation and means of economic distribution

I have been a fan of compressed air powered cars for quite some time. The MDI group in France are to have road ready vehicle in 2010 in conjunction with Tata Motors of India, in the Southern hemisphere the Di Pietro rotary air motor is coming along in leaps and bounds.

The prospect of a car that runs on air only could revolutionise the world that we live in, currently the death toll from pollution is in the millions per annum, it is the cause of civil unrest in China who have regular riots due to pollution. You need visit Los Angeles only once to witness the ‘brown haze‘ that hangs over that city, and when you witness the effects of acid rain or the pollution which is eating away the Acropolis in Greece you don’t need a degree in chemistry to realise that we are slowly killing our planet and thus ourselves.

Stagflation 2008, what’s the good thing about recessions?

2008 looks like a year where we will (we being the EU, USA, and likely Asia) will face a recession, in America the fears are even a little bit more as they might suffer from Stagflation which is the mean-eyed just got out of prison older brother of recession.

Stagflation [just to be clear] is where you have the decreased or negative GDP in an inflationary environment. This could happen in the US because currently the GDP there is reducing, America is not really a manufacturing nation any more, so it relys on services and consumer spending, actually about 2/3’s of the US economy is based on consumer spending. So picture that fact, and then picture a world where the Dollar to Euro is at $1.50 and oil is at $100+.

That means that anything imported is much more expensive, so people will not continue spending at the same rate. Then to exacerbate that situation you have expensive gasoline and a country where car engines are only getting bigger, whether or not people can no longer afford to drive to …
