Re: TED Talk

They could do more - but that's only part of the equation. The other part is whether other people can force them to do more. Whether you can create an obligation to do more.

Re: Addition of A/C to existing furnace system...

If you only need it occasionally, consider a room air conditioner. I saw them at Costco (and Home Depot) for around $350/$400. I don’t mean the ones that you hang from a window, I mean the ones that stand up inside the room and exhaust the hot air [more]

Re: Postal Service losing billions and deliverin

I still don't get it. Why keep the USPS hamstrung with arbitrarily set rates, instead of charging enough to cover the expense of providing a service, including 'surcharges' for delivery** to the boonies? If the USPS cost structure is [more]
