DAVID POGUE–POWERING-UP WITHOUT POWER

I thought that everyone might benefit from the linked–and somewhat humorous–article by Mr. Pogue, who is the Technology Columnist for the NY Times. His regular Blog is “Pogue’s Posts”.

Today’s Post, “How to Keep Electronics Going With No Power”, is linked as follows: http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/11/01/how-to-keep-electronics-going-with-no-power/?ref=business.

Many Friends, Relatives and Former Clients were in or near the Eye of Hurricane Sandy; but, given what I truly believe is Global Warming, we can never be sure that our turn might not be next.

Just think about what we have seen in the last few years: Forest Fires in the West and Southwest; several EarthQuakes; Tornadoes; Floods; Horrendous Snowstorms and Hurricanes across the Gulf and East Coast. Hawaii was anticipating a potential tsunami just a week ago, which never occurred. This article might be worth saving–even if you, like me, will need help in understanding it. But, in all of these situations, electric power generally goes out–perhaps for a week or two.

Perhaps, we might need to branch-out with this theme and ask any former Girl scouts for quick ideas for cooking stew over a sterno grill. Believe me, peanut butter crackers and canned tuna can only be tolerated for so long. Besides, if you run out of bottled water, I know someone in Annapolis, Md. who has a ton of it.

    My greatest hope is that, perhaps, Global Warming will stop being a political football and that something will start being done to at least mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. We now have to learn how to live in this “new normal” but we have to stop making it worse.
