Hot Topics

Driving in cold weather? Skip the "warm up." As Ecomodder.com points out, an idling engine gets "zero miles per gallon." (And it's environmentally uncool.) Also recheck your tire inflation as the season cools; air temperature affects tire inflation and you may need a "fill up."

One of the most disheartening aspects of the Copenhagen climate talks, beyond the sheer weight of the topic, has been how politicians and handicappers have lowered expectations for the U.S..

Take, for example, the notion that President Obama cannot even sign a binding agreement in the absence of a Congressional mandate or climate bill to back him up, and that he must have a supportive Senate because they’ll be needed to ratify any climate treaty. (And clearly they’re not supportive, having failed so far to pass a strong climate bill, let alone a weak one.)
