Did this about a year ago. The Disney execs son heard me on the radio and thought I was funny so they called and asked me to do the voice. Originally there were supposed to be 12 small videos about the environment which I was supposed to help shape so I figured it was a good way to get a message out to a larger audience. Once I signed on, the economy tanked and they shrunk it down quite a bit, but it's still fun and gets the idea of electric vehicles into kids heads.
Kind of cool, even if they do have me wearing shoes.

Sorry for the long absence. I was in Haiti for two weeks and came back about a week and a half ago. For obvious reasons updating here was a little lower on the priority list. You can check out about the trip here and here are some specific things you can do right now.
Back at ya as soon as I get caught up on life.

A great article from Grist about how to answer global warming skeptics. Personally, I don't think it makes a stick of difference if it can be proven (at least whether or not we are causing it) because it's a question of acceptable risk, but some people need proof. Here's a good way to engage them.
Check it out.

There's a fair amount of argument about climate change as I'm sure you know. The thing that always amazes me is that everyone is arguing about the wrong things. It's not about whether we are causing it or not (something which neither side can prve with 100% certainty), but whether or not we are willing to take the risks associated with being wrong. This video represents that argument perfectly and the answer is quite clear.

These kinds of things will start popping up more and more and the fact that they are, to me at least, is testament to the idea that we are going to start seeing EVs in earnest soon. It's a well made piece, perhaps a bit over reaching (I don't know how comfortable I am with the idea that mass producing anything is going to help the climate) but I think its meant to engage and make us think, which is always a good thing.
My friend Paul, who first posted this, pointed out that leaf in the last 10 seconds or so, a subtle nod to the companies sister, Nissan, which is bringing the Leaf EV to market.

Fantastic radio piece about medical waste and orgs that gather usable items and ship them abroad. Really makes you think.
