When the stars align I blog about climate change and sustainability ideas. Here I catalog innovative ideas that I think contribute to a sustainable and authentic lifestyle. I love art, design, technology, and to travel. I love the idea of minimalism and philosophies that discuss creating value so those ideas sneak in here and there. 

Powerwall and Beyond


Elon Musk is a modern day super hero of sorts. This morning's announcement of the Tesla batteries to store solar power is inspiring to me and my colleagues working in the sustainability field. It's not that the issues of renewable storage and our failing grid isn't being discussed and worked on by others, it is more the fanfare that Tesla brings to the conversation that excites me. The more publicity and exposures his humanistic ventures get, the faster we race toward a sustainable, clean energy future.

Musk's thoughts on procreation and colonizing Mars?... let's just say I'm not a faithful believer.
