Sereda briefly discussed a conspiracy by oil companies to undermine global warming research by funding studies that show the planet's increased temperature has natural, not man-made, causes. He also encouraged listeners to invest in an a renewable energy infrastructure in order to lessen dependence on foreign oil, which he noted could add an additional $200+ billion back into the U.S. economy. According to both guests, steps are now being taken in California under Gov. Schwarzenegger to build hundreds of hydrogen fueling stations and get a significant percentage of drivers into hydrogen-powered vehicles.
Plarr provided details about Angel's Nest, his advanced environmental building project in Taos, New Mexico. The self-sustaining home uses solar panels and wind turbines for power, he explained, and includes a free range organic hydrogen fueling station for vehicles. Plarr also said they grow their own food at Angel's Nest in an integrated greenhouse, as well as harvest rain water and recycle waste (you can even drink the toilet water). Plarr plans to build tens of thousands of sustainable dwellings around the world based on the Angel's Nest prototype.
