Watch the Cows

Next time you go through farm country, watch the cows. I have seen 20 tons of rippling bovine flesh held back by the discipline of a single wire pulsing with 4,000 volts.  Every cow hits the electric fence once.   Very few hit it a third time, and the reason for this is simple:  the discomfort is greater than the gain, the punishment is immediate, and it’s always the right bad actor that gets the jolt.Electric fences are very good animal trainers.Compare the way we train the cows to the w...

Porsche’s Formula E squad again secures hearty points haul in London EPrix

This weekend Porsche had yet another successful attempt at the Formula E doubleheader. This time the E-Prix was held in London, and for an interesting twist it was held partially inside and partially outside of a large building, the ExCeL track in East London’s historic Docklands district. Sadly the points didn’t help much, as Porsche was leapfrogged this weekend in the team points championship which saw the Mahindra team score a pair of podiums, significantly outscoring Porsche. The German spo...

PG&E’s Plan To Bury Power Lines Will Cost At Least $15 Billion

SAN RAMON, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — Pacific Gas and Electric’s plan to bury 10,000 miles of its power lines in an effort to prevent its fraying grid from sparking wildfires will cost the company at least $15 billion. The utility said Wednesday it aims to bury about 10% of its distribution and transmission lines, which may cost them anywhere between $15 billion to $30 billion, based on how much the process currently costs. The utility believes it will find ways to keep the final bill at the lower end ...

Congress should stop stalling autonomous vehicle technologies

Imagine you have the key to unlocking solutions on climate change and reducing traffic fatalities. It shouldn’t be too hard – what you’re imagining is actually the key to a self-driving car. California is ready for autonomous vehicles (AVs). As heat wave after heat wave crashes into the West Coast and as Los Angeles continues to struggle to reduce traffic deaths, we should be using every tool at our disposal to combat climate change and lower traffic fatalities. Instead, Congress is stalling pro...

VanMoof X3 e-bike review: Transportation revelation

Like some of the best consumer tech from the last decade, I didn’t know I needed an e-bike until I was on one, breezing down the bike lane contemplating my newfound freedom. Before buying a Nintendo Switch, I would have never guessed how much a candy-colored gaming console that I could pop out of a dock and into my backpack for long flight would fill me with joy. An e-bike, particularly this e-bike, the VanMoof X3, feels like that. I live in Portland, Oregon, land of ample bike lanes and naked b...

Gas Sellers Reaped $11 Billion Windfall During Texas Freeze

The official autopsy of the great Texas winter blackout of February 2021 quickly established a clear timeline of events: Electric utilities cut off power to customers and distributors as well as natural gas producers, which in turn triggered a negative feedback loop that sunk the state deeper and deeper into frigid darkness. It's now becoming clear that while millions of Texans endured days of power cuts, the state's gas producers contributed to fuel shortages, allowing pipelines and traders to ...

When is Porsche going to build its last internal combustion powered car?

Image: Porsche This week the world was treated to the unveiling of the last internal combustion-powered Lotus. If there is another manufacturer which can most closely be compared to Porsche, it must be Lotus, right? While Lotus is a bit smaller than Porsche and sells far fewer cars, they are both engineering-focused companies with histories entrenched in the fabric of international motorsport. Considering Porsche’s recent shift toward electrification, it is somewhat telling that Lotus is alread...

After Years Of Deadly Fires, PG&E Again Pledges To Do Better

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — Pacific Gas and Electric has long vowed to change its reckless ways, but year after year there’s more death and destruction from Northern California wildfires sparked by the nation’s largest utility. CEO Patricia “Patti” Poppe, who took over in January as PG&E’s fifth leader in less than three years, has pledged to shareholders that the future will get “easier” and “brighter.” That vow will be put to the test as California sinks deeper into drought and fire danger...

Veo CEO Candice Xie has a plan for building a sustainable scooter company, and it’s working

Startups are the embodiment of frenetic action. The rush to grow, outrun, and disrupt runs in the lifeblood of today’s entrepreneurs, driving their fervor and enabling them to capture markets from giants of industries too big to maneuver in a quickly changing landscape. That has been truer for the mobility landscape than most other industries. Companies like electric scooter providers Lime and Bird have raised tons of capital to change how the urban population gets around, but that growth has co...

Bacteria – yes, bacteria – could be the key to recycling EV batteries

There are more than 1.4 billion cars in the world today, and that number could double by 2036. If all those cars burn petrol or diesel, the climate consequences will be dire. Electric cars emit fewer air pollutants and if they’re powered by renewable energy, driving one wouldn’t add to the greenhouse gases warming Earth’s atmosphere. But producing so many electric vehicles (often abbreviated to EVs) in a decade would cause a surge in demand for metals like lithium, cobalt, nickel and manganese. ...

Porsche and Pascal Wehrlein nab stellar Formula E results in Mexico, lose out on minor rules infractions

Photo: Porsche Porsche doesn’t do things by half measure. When the company decides it is going to get into racing, that’s because it has decided to win that series, that championship, and that race. It will pull out all of the stops to make victories happen, no matter what. It may take a few years of development and spending and engagement in a series to find its feet, but it always does. Nowhere is that more true than in Formula E. Porsche joined the series in the 2019/20 season and had middli...
