TED video: Elon Musk’s tunnel under LA

Some Friday inspiration by Elon Musk again. You might think of him what you like but you have to respect the creative nature of this person.

We need more people that think different here. Elon Musk in one. What other person would you have in mind?

3 useful articles on Electric Vehicles (EV) future outlook

We have two cars in our family. I am proud to say that both are hybrid vehicles. This fact might show you that I am not a petrol head! Quite the opposite. 

Eventually we as a family will convert to electric vehicles (EV) one day. But so far there are few alternatives to realistically switch to 2 pure EV’s when you take our family’s annual travel distances into consideration (Holiday trips with the car exceeding 500 km, family size of 4+, a non reliable charging points network in Europe and fairly long charging duration per charge while on a trip).

Fortunately things are changing. That is why I wanted to share 3 current news items on EV developments I found interesting. Here they are:

TED Talk – Nature is everywhere

I am a parent. And probably you are a parent too. Parenthood for me is the most amazing challenge I had in my life so far. It can be very challenging sometimes but 98% of it is just pure enjoyment.

As the kids are getting older they begin to ask more and more challenging questions. In my case as we are keen gardeners, my wife and I get a lot of questions about nature.

Today I wanted to highlight this TED talk below. I hope you will enjoy it and it might help you as much as it helped me to find new ideas about how to bring nature closer to our children.

Stay informed. Some Corp blogs on Democracy, Politics and Sustainability

I will from now on provide short posts about the new era of Sustainability and CSR challenges after the world-changing Brexit decision and a surge of authoritarianism in the US (dare I say this T-word again…No I will resist for now).

Why? Simple. If you stay informed you know what is going on around you and you can make an informed decision. Something that is clearly missing in the daily Trump universe (there I wrote it).

Here are some interesting articles to read to finish of your week. 4 blogs from corporations and 1 from Jeffrey Hollender:

Have a good weekend everyone!
