Tennessee Valley Christmas train

Personal History: Amy and Merlin

It doesn't take much to see that the problems of three little people don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. ~Humphrey Bogart, Casablanca Amy and I grew up in the 1970s on the far western outskirts of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. At the time the area was comprised of small farms that were rapidly being sold off and transformed into tract-house sub-divisions, which gave it an unusual suburban/rural character. Our relatively large, modern high school was surrounded by corn fields...

The Green New Deal: Historians weigh in on the immense scale required to pull it off

In an attempt to cure his paralysis, a 42-year-old Franklin D. Roosevelt began to visit Warm Springs, Georgia in the mid-1920s, soaking his weak legs in the town’s soothing mineral waters. It was here that Roosevelt — who in less than a decade would become President of the United States — would see a part of the nation new to him. And it was miserable. “He saw the reality. He had never seen poverty like that. He saw a family of eight living in a tar paper shack, farming on depleted soil,” Paul S...

Why we’re putting 1.6 million solar panels in Tennessee and Alabama

Hundreds of engineers, electricians and construction workers are building two new, energy-efficient Google data center campuses in the Southeastern U.S.—one in Tennessee and another in northern Alabama. And we’re not stopping there—we’re also putting more carbon-free energy on the electric grid that will power our servers in the region. In the coming years, Google will purchase the output of several new solar farms as part of a deal with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), totaling 413 megawat...

Why you should visit Chattanooga

It’s not every day you get to hold a million-dollar guitar. Much less play one. Of course, I don’t actually play guitar, so the experience was a little wasted. But standing in a back vault at Chattanooga’s Songbirds Guitars museum, holding a piece of Rock and Roll history, I was really wishing I did. “That’s the third electric guitar Gibson ever made,” Johnny Smith, the executive director of the most impressive guitar museum ever created tells me. “Go ahead, you want a picture?” Usually in a ...
