After twice getting tangled up trying to navigate Logan Airport yesterday (practically my home town!)and twice paying tunnel tolls, the electric podcars planned for Abu Dhabi look really enticing – sort of combination ski-lift and theme park ride. This rendering is a concept for Gotgaten, Sweden – but I can see them hanging from Boston’s Zakim Bridge.
We’ve had 80+ temperatures in the Northeast for three days now – a strangely comfortable reminder that climate change is real. But the Recovery act has many of us buzzing about cleantech grant proposals, tax incentives and funding opportunities. A warm sensation, on a local (rather than global) scale.

Trust NPR to come up with an interactive map that showing of the whole US grid(s). My computer had some difficulty running a Flash script in it,unfortunately – but otherwise, a very cool site.
