Low Tech is the Best Tech

Have you ever wondered how you can run your car on wood?

Do you want to know if a small wind turbine makes sense for powering your home?

Are you looking for understandable explanations of eco-friendly technologies and if they make economic sense?

Are you interested in the history of technology?

Then take a look at the new addition to my links, Low Tech Magazine. A story about real world testing of small wind turbines caught my attention. From there I found an article about the wood gas powered automobile so prevalent during WW II. From then on I was hooked. The articles are relevant and understandable to the non engineer - and some of them shoot holes in some popular "green" theories.

And I hatred to see state in the keeping of an unlettered disciplinarian. Propeller the TSA!
