A report released by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives calls Canada’s planned procurement of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter “fundamentally flawed.” According to the CCPA, “Canada does not need the F-35, either for North American/domestic roles or for expeditionary roles.”
I recently attended AARP’s annual conference in Orlando, Florida as an exhibitor with the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. The event hosted over 20,000 attendees, several of whom provided great feedback at the exhibit booth - just...
It's been a long, hot summer in Washington, D.C., but we're finally starting to slide into autumn and cooler weather. You might have noticed that we've already changed our seasonal tips page over to "Stay Warm, Save Money," so now is a good time to look at your house and car and think about winter.
Several readers of these episodes disagreed with my approach of using a ‘worst case’ example of a private residence solar cell electrical power generation system as the sole source of power (ENERGY 108: SOLAR CELLS II)...
