Highway to ?

There was an article the other day in the paper with the headline “Phoenix Plans 24-Lane Highway”. The article described the plan to widen a two mile stretch of Interstate 10 in Phoenix to 24 lanes.  In each direction there would be six general purpose lanes, two high-occupancy lanes and then four lanes for local […]

Post Tipping Point

Regular readers know that I believe that America and the world passed a tipping point last year regarding Global Warming.  I have written about it here and here.  Every week I continue to see evidence that verifies this viewpoint.  Two weeks ago I shared with you my conversation with an executive at GM who not […]

A Man Who Wants to Change the World

It was great to meet with a number of the top executives at GM prior to the Chicago Auto Show to learn about the Chevrolet Volt, the company commitment to developing battery technology and to really find out how committed this company is and will be in the area of cleaner automobiles.  However there is […]

An Electric Car

[Note to readers: This blog was one of a select few blogs to be invited by General Motors to a behind the scenes opportunity at the current Chicago Auto Show to meet and interview top management.  As far as GM knew or I could discern, they were the only major auto company to reach out […]

Yup, Point the Finger at Us

In a recent post, I again touched on the theme of reaching a tipping point  in consciousness regarding Global Warming.  In that post, I mentioned early speculation about the up coming report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.  Well, the other day, evidently after a lot of last minute back and forth on language […]

Global Warming Tipping Point

In my look back at 2006, I wrote that it was during last year that we reached a tipping point regarding global warming and alternative energy.  This is becoming  more clear with each passing week. During the first week of 2007 it was unseasonably warm across most of the U.S.  The media coverage of this […]

A Quick Update on 2007 Predictions

When I made the post with my 2007 predictions, I wrote that I would revisit the predictions from time to time, both to explore them more deeply or to reference them as events warranted. One of the specific predictions (#3) I made was that gasoline will climb over $3 a gallon nationally and over $4 […]

2007 Predictions Part Two

In my last post I listed four General Trends and Dynamics that would gain power in this New Year.  The third one listed was the about alternative energy and Global Warming.  The fact that we reached a tipping point on this in 2006 will become much clearer this year.  It will be a dominant story, […]

A Look At 2007

As a futurist I am always asked to make predictions. Often somewhat in jest, people ask me who is going to win the election, how much will the stock market go up in the next three months, who will win the Super Bowl, things like that. While I have been accurate in such predictions, it […]

2006

This was a very interesting year from this futurist’s point of view.  It felt like a year of transition, of new beginnings and of breakthroughs.  New and clear trend lines were started in several areas that will continue next year and beyond.  Starting next week I will take a predictive look forward to 2007 and […]
