COULD THE WORLD RUN ON RENEWABLES ALONE?

So asks Scientific AmericanHere.  And this good stuff doesn’t even take into account the “passive cooling” panels described yesterday that would lower demand significantly, should they prove viable.

HOW ABOUT ON STREB ENERGY?

STREB is gymnastics meets modern dance meets professional wrestling (the body slams, but from greater heights) meets the circus meet Mechanics 101 — all for $25 a seat, if you can find your way to a hole in the wall in Brooklyn when they’re performing . . . or just scroll down their home page and watch the video.  Amazing.

COULD IT POWER THIS MALL?

It’s a quite small mall . . . constructed in the basement of a Malibu mansion . . . and it has just one occasional customer — Barbra Streisand.  It’s a one-man play called Buyer & Cellar that is so brilliantly conceived, written, and performed — with a top ticket price of $55, I think — that you won’t mind the somewhat ratty 99-seat theater.  No special interest in Streisand is required, just a sense of humor.
