CS. With IPO of Facebook in the headlines and Apple testing the limits of the market appetite for its valuation, we need to put a few things into perspective. We love all Apple Products, recognise the Facebook phenomenon and think that these companies do have resources to really change our world one more time and save us all - literally this time. We will throw Google into the mix as well. These three companies are all experiencing unprecedented growth, market valuations and are literally sitting on piles of cash. They have built teams of the best engineers in the world which are able to solve very fast the most difficult technical problems in the most efficient way. They know how to engage people and communicate very efficiently new ideas.
They will be all much better of to put all these resources to work and to do it fast - economy will not survive another Oil Shock, which is approaching very fast now. Oil Shock means not only higher Gas prices, but destruction of our societies as it will affect everyone and everything: Food production, Supply Chains, Security and Economy as a whole.
We were calling for Apple to produce the Electric iCar for years. Steve Jobs had the unique ability to pull us all to buy the more expensive products, but with ultimate quality in design and its utilities. Apple can make it fashionable for us to drive Electric Cars. Technology is already here and Lithium Batteries have made possible the electrification of our transportation. More and more Electric Cars are coming on the roads now, but to make it a mass market and to reach the tipping point we need the Catalyst and ideally before it will come in the form of Oil Shock, when we will slip into the real Depression.
Why are we so concerned and particularly now? Answers are in the movie below - a very good compilation on the real situation we are facing now. Time is running out, Oil pushes the Gas prices higher and higher and it is happening with the economy which is still in recession. If you are visiting the grocery store and paying your energy and medical bills, you do not need Jim Puplava to tell you that Real Inflation is running at least at 6% now. Subtract it from the GDP growth and you will get the real picture of the economy.
Post Carbon Institute has produced a brilliant documentary "There Is No Tomorrow", which we highly recommend to watch everybody. You can personally judge our progress now.
We hope that you are getting concerned now for your own good. Not everything is so bad - we have the solution and we are fortunate enough to have the new technology - Electric Cars, based on Lithium Battery technology, which can save us all. We still have the time, but it is running out very fast now.
We would like to convince you, that something need to be done, that we are capable to do it - motivation is all across this blog, look at the long term trends, think, make your own opinion. With Electric Cars we can finally vote where it matters - against the next War, which is coming - War for Oil again. We can vote with every Electric Car on the street for our choice. Volume will bring the further technological advance in the Lithium batteries and cost reduction - EVs will become eventually cheaper to buy, they are already cheaper to own.
"As one very wise and honest person has put it: "How to stop wars and terrorism? - Stop using Oil." We will paraphrase it here: How to Survive? - Stop using Oil - at least for transportation."
Help us to help yourself, lets bring these topics to the headlines, lets make it the real agenda for our politicians. Lets make our choice - Electric Cars allow us to do it.
As Amory Lovins has said: "We do not have to believe in the same things, our mutual benefit of the end result should be enough to motivate us". Join the movement and start thinking about it, donate your tweet or dump the pump all together if you can afford it. Now we will decide whether the jobs, technology and progress will support our economy or we will still get there, but our technology will be produced overseas again. We are slipping dangerously behind the lines now.
"Our Hero is gone and we are paying our respect to him for everything what Steve Jobs has done for us. He will live in so many real and virtual "things" we "touch" every day in our life now, he has changed the world and made the very high bar to reach for any human. He has connected us to the WEB on the go. We can access, connect, store and use the Information on the move in Style thanks to him and Enjoy every moment of famous "Apple's customer experience". We need it so much for our Next Big thing - Electric Cars dreamz now...We will deeply miss him.
We were always hoping that he will make his entrance into the Electric Cars space - he was always up to the magnitude of this task - to change the world one more time.
He did not have a lot of time left to do it. Who will take his place now in our Lithium Dreamz? Elon Musk and his Tesla has a very good chance to make it. Or maybe it will be Google guys with their billions of cash and drive to change the world? Or maybe Apple with Steve Jobs' legacy can still make it? Will it be Facebook or Twitter who will connect us again in physical space and make our freedom possible in the post carbon world?
We need the Manhattan project for the Electric Cars in our broken society and we need it right now - who can lead the world into the future?
Electric Cars industry gives Trillion market place business opportunity to fill. And we will throw again as with Apple iCar - Why Not?"
Electric Cars: Amory Lovins: Reinventing Fire Talk at The Institute for Energy Efficiency - How To Get Off Oil
"Now we have technology to get off Oil - Electric Cars and Lithium Batteries provide us with the opportunity to "Leave The Oil Before It Leaves Us."
Lithium Rush: The Art Of War In The Markets: China Getting Ready For 5 Million Electric Cars by 2020"China knows too well the real price of Oil. All recent data points out that the spare capacity in Oil production is running dangerously low and any decreased demand from the developed world was immediately substituted by the rising demand from emerging economies."
China has the money, political will and the technology to leapfrog into the post carbon world. Oil is the geopolitical issue already and it will define the sharp edge between the state of War and Peace in the nearest future. As one very wise and honest person has put it: "How to stop wars and terrorism? - Stop using Oil." We will paraphrase it here: How to Survive? - Stop using Oil - at least for transportation.
Electric Cars produce the one life time opportunity for China now - do not get us wrong, not everything is driven by the ancient wisdom of "The Art Of War", but just look at what people are doing and not what they are talking about. It is the most apparent situation in the strategic commodities markets - Rare Earths are already controlled by China, Graphite is under the siege and Lithium is the next frontier. Despite all noise in the media, China is steadily implementing its 12th Five Year Plan - to build the new strategic industry based on Electric Cars.
We hope, that China is transforming "The Art Of War" into the Art Of Survival for the benefit of all, but the Western world which is teared apart by the latest financial structural crisis is falling dangerously behind now."
