Thanks to grants from the South Coast Air Quality Management District, the Los Angeles Unified School District will soon have a total of 403 CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) school buses operating across district boundaries.

We are fortunate to live on rural mountain property in Northern California with a creek that is not seasonal, although the volume of water does drop significantly during the arid months of summer. The beauty of hydro power is that it produces power 24 hours a day and is not dependent upon weather patterns, such as sun and wind. The drawbacks are having to maintain the system by cleaning the intake and dealing with varying creek flows.

Perhaps it is time to put a measure on state ballots not only to ask voters about legalizing marijuana for medicinal and recreational purposes, but also for harvesting its potential as an alternative fuel. Marijuana can be seen as an alternative fuel as evidenced by “Researchers at the University of Connecticut have found that the fiber crop Cannabis sativa, known as industrial hemp, has properties that make it viable and attractive as a raw material, or feedstock for producing biodiesel, sustainable diesel fuel made from renewable plant sources.”

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is nothing if not outspoken. Here, in the second of three interview segments, he talks about prospects for the company’s affordable Model S sedan, an alliance with Toyota and more.

Have a great weekend everyone!
