Will You Invest in Gasoline or Hydrogen Fuel Cells

Will the next new car you buy be gasoline powered? Is it really wise to invest in a brand new gasoline powered car, given the steadily increasing pump price of gasoline and the average length of financing options? Perhaps not! There are options emerging, such as Honda’s FCX Clarity (a dedicated platform hydrogen fuel cell vehicle).

Honda has led the way in developing and improving fuel cell vehicle performance. The FCX Clarity was designed from the ground up to be a fuel cell vehicle that runs on electricity powered by hydrogen, and emits only water vapor and heat into the air. In other words, the fuel cell technology was developed by Honda for the FCX Clarity, and was not retrofitted to an existing model. Instead, our engineers cleared away all preconceived notions of automobile design, challenging themselves to discover the new possibilities that can only be realized with the fuel cell vehicle.

And no, you don’t have to plug in the FCX Clarity to recharge it. It generates it’s own electricity within the fuel cell itself. You can read more about this revolutionary vehicle via the FAQ page of the FCX’s official site.

The following tips for the pump are a good start. Read More »

What Difference does Theological Thinking Make?

I recently stumbled upon and purchased a very, very interesting read: Theology That Matters: Ecology, Economy, and God, Edited by Darby Kathleen Ray. The book is constructed upon a very important question: “What difference does theological thinking make?” Theology does sometimes seem totally irrelevant, as far as the big and immediate picture that is life and living are concerned. Theologians tend to spend much time and energy on insider jargon, ecclesiastics, and apologetic-based arguments designed to meet the needs of an insatiable academy and its spiritual-sounding but extremely individualized ritual of cognitive calisthenics.
