re: fan switch, hi speed only - a common problem, it is a burned out resistor, usually located in the air duct to keep it cool, cost under $100 in most cars.

Awesome job! One always wishes there were easier more pleasant answers like the size of the globe could be increased to accomodate 6 or 9 billion people or magically we no longer need energy.

Excellent writing! I too have become concerned about the biofuel balance - particularly the impact on the aquifers in the american mid-west. Have you considered compiling your blog postings into a book at some point? You certainly have a jump on an interesting volume.

Fascinating article Rob. After visiting Brasil I was struck by the realities of large, poor populations. I thought you might be interested in this link to a blogger who follows a variety of issues pertaining to squatters. http://squattercity.blogspot.com/

Very cool! An NS woman won a young entreprenur award a few years back doing something like this with fancy-smancy lettuce and tillapia fish... both of which she sold to the hotel chefs. I think she's expanded now into regular grocery stores.... http://www.aquaponicsjournal.com/articleFutureAquaFarms.htm

Of course - she didn't have a dome - and she did have Gov't money to set it up. :)

Hmmm loving that Rob!! I had a good laugh today reading this!! Are you selling those yet, cause we´ve got enough wind in St-Paul to power 1000 beer coolers!?

From: Heather MacAulay

(November 2nd, 2007)

Hey - now that's what I call applied science! Not to mention market sensitive analysis - how many rural farmers would understand the beer chiller data better than the power curve? You're on to something! Yet another plus in my goal to bring wind to rural newfoundland.. colder beer!
