I found this rather interesting and funny video showing how to convert an old Honda Rebel into an electric commute motorcycle.
We started with a Honda Rebel junker and a dream – to make a practical, zero emissions vehicle for commuting in San Francisco. After consulting with some plans available online which required chopping the frame significantly, Gxaoui suggested we figure it out for ourselves. Armed with a basic metal shop, we methodically convert the Honda rebel 250 into a clean quiet bike in about a week.(via)
Google has this nifty little feature, they have company seminars covering a wide variety of topics, this is an hour long talk they had with some people from Ocean Power Delivery LTD. About wave energy. Its very interesting.
Well reported, clear, and sobering.
We must not give up hope, there is a chance to solve these problems, we can make the world better, and we can do it now. Contact your local government official and let them know you would like them to do more to lower CO2 emissions, and you want them to do it now.
