The Future of Power

I'm so excited to see this. I've thought for years that this country should be doing a lot more with solar power. In particular I've always thought that x amount of roof space should have solar power on them. This new project in the Southland really is exciting to me.

This is one of the technologies that I have hated the most being implemented across the country.

Central Command Chief Resigns??

Does this mean that things are going to turn bad and we're going to heat things up with Iran?

Storm hitting Europe

I saw this and was amazed. This breaking wave is spashing at least 100-200 feet into the air. Makes me shutter as to the type of damage that this type of wave action will do to the coast of England over the next 24-48 hrs.

Oh, my! If this is True?

No wonder Chávez has been so vocal on behalf of the FARC. He killed Reyes with his phone call, if this is to be believed.

A “senior Colombian intelligence source” claimed that Colombia was able to pinpoint FARC chief Raul Reyes’ location because of a phone call made to his satellite phone by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

I have

absolutely no idea what to make of this. I don't find it hard to believe, but at the same time I have been waiting for something to come up that would create a greater sense of crisis before the election in the fall. This is one of those things that I would watch for the "Wag the Dog" Effect from our goverment.
Counterterrorism Blog: FARC Fallout: Assessing Dirty Bomb Claims:
Among the more explosive revelations from the laptops of the late FARC leader Raul Reyes is the allegation that the FARC was trafficking in radioactive materials and according to Colombia’s Vice President was planning to build a “dirty bomb.”

South America at War?

I find it very weird, the rhetoric coming out of South America. First you have a raid in Ecuador on a F.A.R.C. base killing 23. Then you get the President of Ecuador calling it a massacre of civilians. Then you have the opportunist Chavez jumping into the middle of this siding with Ecuador and sending 6000 troops to the border with Columbia. With the type of money floating around the F.A.R.C. from it's drug activities. I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't been giving money to both Ecuador and Venezuela so that they could use their countries as staging areas for their operation in Columbia.

One of the men killed, acording to the BBC, was one of the Farc's head negotiators and one of the most senior members of the Farc to be killed was Raul Reyes. According to the Columbian, Reyes has connections with the Velezuelian and Ecuadorian governments.
