Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

Plug-in hybrids may outpace other new-energy cars in China

Electric cars continue to face cooling global sales, while many in China debate which way the country should go forward with its own energy development, reports the China Youth Daily, the official newspaper of the Communist Youth League.

Some industry insiders say that China should continue developing electric cars, while others say that they should be abandoned in favor of hybrid cars. The government plans to subsidize both electric and hybrid cars according to their oil-saving ratio divided by 16 degrees, with the minimum subsidy as high as 3,000 yuan (US$490) per car, but the specifics of the plan have yet to be revealed.

There are currently three types of new energy vehicles in development: electric cars, which uses electrical energy stored in batteries or another energy storage device; plug-in hybrids, which combines an internal combustion engine with rechargeable batteries; and conventional hybrids, which has an internal combustion engine and can save energy, but cannot be recharged.

Plug-in hybrid cars have been the main focus and priority for research and development, according to industry insiders, while some ventures continue to explore possibilities for both electric cars and hybrids, such as Toyota and PSA Peugeot-Citroen.

Dr Herbert Diess, a BMW director in charge of research and development, said that plug-in hybrids will be a very good choice for future development, because it can satisfy the needs of short-distance and longer-distance travel. BMW's new i3 electric cars are targeting the needs in drivers in larger cities such as Beijing and Shanghai, but it's not the best choice for long-distance travel, Diess said.

Volkswagen said it will focus on developing plug-in hybrids and will soon mass produce its Porche Panamera and Audi A3 e-tron plug-in hybrid cars. The German automaker will also continue to develop electric cars, and will soon commence production of its Volkswagen up! and e-Gold models.

Mercedes-Benz has been comparatively conservative regarding the outlook for electric cars, the China Youth Daily said, but the company will introduce an S-series of plug-in hybrids, and is cooperating with the Chinese automaker BYD to develop an electric car.

Ford Motors, which is now the second-largest US hybrid carmaker with a market share of 15%, said it is developing both electric cars and plug-in hybrids, adding that once China's new-energy car market has chosen its direction, Ford will be able to immediately introduce its products into the market.

BYD, China's most experienced carmaker in the electric car field, has also adopted a strategy to develop plug-in hybrids for the private passenger-car market, and also develop electric passenger cars and buses to target the public transportation markets.
