Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** Hi everybody, MrEnergyCzar here. This video is about an emergency back-up multi-purpose communications radio. Facebook: *******www.facebook****/MrEnergyCzar.PeakOil Twitter: ********Twitter****/MrEnergyCzar Communications is very important to have in emergency situations. You want to know what's going on in your immediate area and further away. What I like about this is it has a multi-weather band, am fm radio and a couple of TV bands. It even has a siren to scare the zombies away as they get close. A light and flashing light. Also, what's good and very practical, is in the back here you can connect a cell phone charging device. It comes with various adapters here depending on your phone. Its pretty straight forward, you can wind up charge your cell phone. If you wind it up for a minute or two you are going to get good use out of your phone, maybe a half hour. Great thing to have, I highly recommend it.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** Hi everybody, MrEnergyCzar here. This is my electric weed trimmer video. Facebook: *******www.facebook****/MrEnergyCzar.PeakOil Twitter: ********Twitter****/MrEnergyCzar Now a little background. A few years back, while I started preparing for Peak Oil, I gave away my lawnmower and my gas powered weed trimmer. It was one of the best things I ever did. I don't have to buy gas and oil and tune-ups and all this crazy stuff. To cut the grass I use the reel-type mower as I had in one of my other videos. For trimming weeds, this electric powered trimmer is great. Each of these chargers here lasts about 8-10 minutes. Very easy to do. It's quieter, not as powerful as a gas trimmer from my experience. You basically just charge it on one of these chargers. This is a fast charger, it takes about an hour. It's very basic. Let's see how this thing cuts. Simple on off, it is quieter than a gas powered, no emissions. Cutting up sticks and bushes, it's not going to do obviously.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** Hi everybody, MrEnergyCzar here. This video is about the XL Keystone Pipeline. Facebook: *******www.facebook****/MrEnergyCzar.PeakOil Twitter: ********Twitter****/MrEnergyCzar In a moment, we'll hear what others are saying about the pipeline. First, my take on it. First, let me address the environmental part, there's some environmental protesting going on, well understood. Obviously, it's a huge environmental footprint to produce that tar oil, it has low net energy, everyone agrees on that. Ok, that's one issue. The main reason the pipeline will be built is we need to be good neighbors to Canada, who are oil exporters. They need a way to sell their dirty tar oil into the world market at higher prices. Right now they're losing their shirts because they are selling it for about $65-$70 a barrel but it costs $85-$90 a barrel to make it. This leads to another misconception regarding the pipeline, that building the pipeline will somehow make us energy independent or lower gas prices. Actually, the opposite is what would happen. If the tar sand oil is selling for $65-$70 now, and we provide the bridge to get that pipeline and oil down to the gulf of mexico, they are going to sell it at the world price of oil which is $90, $95, $100, $110 a barrel. Another thing people don't realize is that, up in the mid-west, where you also have the Bakken and the Tar Sand oil being used by the refiners up there, they're getting that oil at a discount from the Bakken and the Tar Sands so the price of gasoline in the mid-west would especially rise. Now, granted, a few thousand jobs will be created over a number of years, I do not believe that tens of thousands of jobs will be created to build and maintain a pipeline. Nevertheless, there would be a net gain in jobs. Now there is an alternative for Canada, which the people of Canada do not want, and that is to build a pipeline westward to the west coast of Canada through the pristine areas there where there's environmental concerns. It is easier to build a pipeline, and put the environmental risk on the United States. Lastly, as far as protesting burning the Tar Oil, that's a losing battle. Until the economies of the world decide to move to a steady state no growth world, its not going to happen. China and India, as an example, will be building 500 coal powered plants, which will be dirty, all in the name of growth. There are a lot of vested interests dependent on the continued growth. The environment, will as always, be a byproduct or bear the brunt of the costs in order to continue that growth. It's unfortunate, but that's the reality that we live in until the system changes. Let's hear what other's are saying about the XL pipeline.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** Hi everybody, MrEnergyCzar here. This is my Peak Oil grieving process video. Facebook: *******www.facebook****/MrEnergyCzar.PeakOil Twitter: ********Twitter****/MrEnergyCzar For me it took about 4 months to go through the five stages of Peak Oil grieving. Everyone goes at their own pace. I suggest that you inform yourself, research, read books, do whatever you need to do to learn about Peak Oil as you are going through the five stages of grieving. The first stage, denial, for me I told myself oh there's plenty of oil. Oil companies are hiding it, there's really a lot left, there's conspiracies or whatever. What got me through the denial phase was reading a dozen books on the subject. Next was anger. I was angry that after 2006, when we peaked in conventional oil production, that the media really didn't really talk about it in the subsequent years when it became obvious. That was a major event in civilization. Also, I had just previously purchased a gas guzzling SUV which I decided to keep and use for motivational purposes later to make change. So I did keep that SUV. Next was bargaining. I believed that the lawmakers will make the right decisions to wean our economy off of oil or that our economy can actually continue to grow with less cheap oil being input into it, which of course isn't true. That led to the depression stage which wasn't too bad for me because I am an optimist. Maybe I didn't sleep well for a few nights or weeks during that phase but it was rather short. The final stage, acceptance. I had a new attitude that life was going to be different but much better. I was going to make changes to put my family in a better position in the future by lessening our addiction to oil. That was my peak oil grieving process. Why don't you tell me about how your's went.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is Peak Oil News. I'm your host, MrEnergyCzar. We're covering Peak Oil, Renewable Energy, Electric Cars and everything in-between. Facebook: *******www.facebook****/MrEnergyCzar.PeakOil Twitter: ********Twitter****/MrEnergyCzar Volkswagen has been in the news lately. They've announced the production of several new plug-in hybrids. They will produce a plug-in hybrid Golf in 2014. It is said to have an electric range close to the Volt's 38 miles. We'll know more later but my guess is it will have more of a 25 - 30 mile EPA rated electric range. They will also be producing the XL1 plug-in diesel hybrid. It is a 261 mpg plug-in two-seater with a 31 all electric mile range. It looks eerily similar to GM's EV-1 from the 1990's. This may be due to having a low aerodynamic drag of just .19. The car is said to be able to cruise at 62 mile per hour while using a fuel sipping 8.3 horsepower. The car will have a two cylinder diesel engine paired with an electric motor. In Lima Peru, water sources are polluted and it hardly rains. They made a billboard that sucks water out of the air and provides clean drinking water for families below. Engineers created a system that gathers the water through reverse osmosis. It is then purified and stored in tanks for the residents to use. This system takes advantage of Lima Peru's high humidity levels in the air. Japan plans the world's largest offshore wind farm near Fukushima. Since the Fukushima incident, 52 nuclear reactors have remained closed in Japan. They plan to install 143 offshore wind turbines, close to Fukushima, so the existing abandoned grid connections can be utilized. I don't expect there to be any opposition to offshore wind like there is here in the states. The United States lags the world in terms of offshore wind because we have none. China has admitted the existence of cancer villages. China allows industries to dump toxic chemicals into the environment, in the name of growth. Hundreds of villages in China are seeing unusually high cancer rates. China still uses many chemicals that are banned in most developed nations. Will the Chinese people reach a breaking point and start demanding that their government protect the air and water?

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is my Peak Oil book review for the book, Cape Wind, one of my favorites. Money, celebrity, class, politics and the battle for our energy future on Nantucket Sound which is out off the coast of Cape Cod in the state of Massachusetts. I give this book five stars. Jim Gordon, who is in charge of Cape Wind over a decade ago, is still fighting to get his wind farm up which I think go up. All the approvals have been done. This book talks about the early years and why its such a battle. The reason why it's such a battle is that he is putting an industrial wind farm, at the closest to land is about 5 miles and it looks like an outstretched thumb on a clear day you could technically see the wind turbines. The problem is he's putting it where not wealthy people live or have second homes but extremely wealthy people. People on top of the energy industry, the finance industry, people who are very politically well connected. So for the first countries off shore wind farm to go there, that's why he ran into a huge fight. But in the end, through a little bit of luck, and a lot of hurdles, Jim Gordon was able to get the approvals needed for Cape Wind. So this book really goes into detail showing the tenacity of the whole project and Jim Gordon himself, what he went through, and hats off to him if he's able to pull it off. As an update, as of 2012, he does have about three quarters of the future wind production already guaranteed with purchase agreements from various power companies. So it looks like things are really going forward, it's going to create a few hundred jobs, the boat companies out in the cape will be giving boat tours and these types of things just like they do in Denmark so the tide is turning. Cape Wind, five stars, highly recommended.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** Hey everybody, MrEnergyCzar here. This video is about, why does Germany want it's gold back from the Federal Reserve in New York? Facebook: *******www.facebook****/MrEnergyCzar.PeakOil Twitter: ********Twitter****/MrEnergyCzar In a moment, I'll show you some video clips of what the experts are saying. I'm not a gold expert so please help me on this by commenting on this video below. Since World War II the Germans have stored hundreds of tons of gold in the New York Fed gold vault. Now they want it back, but why? Do they think it isn't there? Did the gold get leased out to other countries? Why is it going to take seven years for Germany to get back their gold? Can't they just pack it up and ship it to them in a few weeks? I think the Fed may have had an incentive to sell gold in order to keep the price of gold down so the dollar remains stronger. My first thoughts were that Germany might be thinking that they can't keep the Euro solvent by constantly bailing out other European countries who are in the Euro. By repatriating their gold they will have a better ability to put a gold standard back on a new German currency. Here's what the experts are saying.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is Peak Oil News. I'm your host, MrEnergyCzar. We're covering Peak Oil, Renewable Energy, Electric Cars and everything in-between. Facebook: *******www.facebook****/MrEnergyCzar.PeakOil Twitter: ********Twitter****/MrEnergyCzar All electric vehicles will need to have an audible warning when moving at slow speeds. This new law will be rolled out in the coming years. This will help reduce pedestrian accidents and will help alert the visually impaired when they're crossing the street. Each electric car model will be allowed to have it's own unique sound. BMW's all electric I3 is coming to showrooms this fall. It's estimated to have a 90 mile electric range. You'll have the unique option to purchase a range extending gas generator to reduce range anxiety. This is the first long range pure electric car to offer this on-board generator as an option. The engine will be a two cylinder motorcycle engine. To keep costs down, I think they should have just had a 50 mile all electric range with the generator on all the I3's. A Middle Eastern oil producing country is having it's McDonald's trucks run on fryer oil. This could be another sign of what a post Peak Oil world may look like. The United Arab Emirates has 100% of the fryer oil turned into biofuel to run the fast food chain's delivery trucks. Saudi Arabia may be realizing they are approaching Peak Oil production. There is a question as to why they have recently cut their oil output. Their oil wells have been pumping at 30 year highs the past year and may need a rest to prevent damage and permanent decline. The Saudi's have been maintaining their oil production by pumping in more seawater into their wells than they get out in oil. This can only go on for so long before terminal decline kicks in. Wind beats out natural gas to become the top source of new electricity capacity in 2012. New wind installations totaled over 10,000 MW while new gas installations totaled over 8.000. However, capacity is different than actual production. Wind is more intermittent than gas power so you need to have about twice the wind capacity installed to match the gas production by output. We'll see what 2013 brings.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This video is about what is Wind Power. Wind turbine power is converting the free energy source, wind, into electricity via a three blade large wind turbine on top of a tower which will turn a small turbine in it which will convert the wind into electricity. The electricity gets transferred out via cables. There are large wind farms on land in the United States. In Europe and other countries they have a lot of offshore wind farms. Cape Wind will probably be the first offshore wind farm in the United States. It's been over a decade but those 130 wind turbines will be going up in the next couple of years. Just to give you an idea, 100 or 200 wind turbines can duplicate a standard polluting coal powered power plant. The difference is you need to mine and extract and get the source of energy for a coal plant whereas wind energy is free and available. There are also micro wind turbines for the home, which are very good, especially if you are off the grid. These are a lot smaller. Issues with these are that they are tall, you have to be above the tree line, you have to have a drop zone within your property which may not work well in suburbia if you have a one acre plot of land. The positives are the wind usually comes out more at night when the solar is down so you can constantly be feeding your batteries. The wind EROEI is higher than solar and other renewables. It is about 8 to 1 and rising. There is a net saving of birds. Bird deaths is a big wind turbine concern. The coal plant emitting more pollution will kill more birds than if you built a wind farm and birds died by hitting the blades. The more coal plants you build, the higher rate of bird deaths you'll have, it will just be more indirect. I'm not counting children with asthma from coal plants.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is my Chevy Volt question and answer video number seven. I'm directly answering your Chevy Volt or electric car questions while giving your channel a shout out. Featured Channels: *******www.youtube****/user/jamesrussell510 *******www.youtube****/user/tristo59 JamesRussell510 asks, "Does the car still waste gas on the freeway while going 70 miles per hour or does it still use the battery? As long as you have the initial battery charge left you can go up to 101 mph on just battery alone. The Volt's top speed is limited to 101 mph in either electric or gas modes. Volt owners have seen their Volt's display 101 mph before the built-in speed governor kicks in. The message you would get on the dashboard display would say, "Speed limit set to 101 mph". Tristo59 asks, "How much would it cost in electricity to go 50km or 30 miles? About $1.00 or $1.10 if you're driving only on the highway. At highway speeds you're getting less miles per KWH than you do in stop and go or city driving. Here's how the calculation works. You actually get about 38 miles on a full Volt charge, not 30 miles. Due to charging losses, you'll use about 13KWH to charge 38 miles or about 1KWH for every 3 miles. You're per KWH electricity cost depends on where you live. If you pay 10 cents per KWH, you'll pay about $1.30 to drive 38 miles or about $1.00 to drive 30 miles as in your example. Just figure out how much you pay per KWH and know that you'll get about 2.5 miles per KWH while driving at highway speeds and about 3 to 4 miles per KWH while driving in country roads or stop and go trafffic.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is my Chevy Volt question and answer video number six. I'm directly answering your or electric car or Chevy Volt questions while giving your channel a shout out. Featured Channels: ********twitter****/PricePiston *******www.youtube****/user/saquibs20 On Twitter, PricePiston ask, "Any Interest on talking about chances of when the world will see the first electric SUV? Yes, the chances are 100%. The Toyota RAV4 EV is already on the road in California. Toyota is using a Tesla 100 mile electric battery. However, this is not a four wheel drive SUV. Also, Tesla has announced it is planning to build the Tesla X Electric SUV. It's range should be about 200 miles with all the luxury amenities and performance you should expect from Tesla. Look for the Tesla model X in 2014. The Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in SUV is out in Japan this month. It should be coming to the states in January 2014. The four wheel drive Outlander will have a 12 KWH battery which should yield about a 25 mile all electric range before the engine comes on. For all the latest news, info and forums about the Outlander Plug-in, go to InsideOutlander****. The Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid is out in Europe. It will be coming to the states in 2013. This is more of a wagon or a cross-over than a true SUV. It too has a 12 KWH battery. It will be one of the first ever diesel plug-in hybrids for the European market. The U.S. version will get a gas engine. Saquib Sheikh asks, "How much average MPG do you get if you use just gas?" If you never plug the Volt in, you should expect to get about 35 - 40 MPG. Doing this, however, defeats one of the main purposes of owning the Volt. For me, the engine comes on for very brief periods because I drive in electric mode 90% of the time. Therefore, when the engine does come on, it's not on long enough to really warm up. My engine only mileage is closer to 30 MPG. As an example, if I drive 43 miles straight, the engine will come on and burn about a tenth of a gallon or about 12 ounces of fuel during those last three miles of the trip. In the example I just gave, you would get about 400 MPG but while the engine was actually running for that brief period of time, you would be getting about 30 MPG.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is my Chevy Volt question and answer video number five. I'm directly answering your or electric car or Chevy Volt questions while giving your channel a shout out. Featured Channels: *******www.youtube****/user/akguy47 *******www.youtube****/user/eTwisted AKGUY47 asks, "Where will all those batteries end up? I'm guessing that the Volt batteries won't last a lifetime". The Volt battery is expected to have useful automotive purposes well into the teen years of the car. They are already looking at what to use them for after that. General Motors and ABB have already created a back-up power supply by linking together five Chevy Volt batteries. I think this is how electric car batteries will primarily be used after their useful automotive life. Also, they could be used to store power during off-peak power periods and then feed the power back in the grid during high demand times. It could also help fill the gaps during renewable power generation. I won't be surprised if I have one of these electric car batteries linked to my own home's solar system. After using them for back-up power, then they'll be recycled. eTwisted asks, "How does mileage compare in summer versus winter? Assuming it's very cold where you live in the winter, that will give you your lowest electric range of about 28 miles. In the blistering heat the range is a little higher because it takes less energy to cool the Volt than it does to heat it up. To counter these weather extremes, you can pre-condition the Volt while it's plugged in to cool or heat the car, instead of using the battery. Doing this will give you a couple of extra electric mile range. For all you Volt owners out there, you would set it to ECO climate mode about 15 minutes before you leave. This will ensure that you are leaving with both a topped off battery and a pre-heated car.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is my Peak Oil movie review for the movie, "Blind Spot". What if all the expectations about the future are wrong? MrEnergyCzar rating is three stars. It was a good movie. The film explains the Peak Oil situation very well which I like. It also tied together the links between the energy, the economy and the environment. Kind of like Chris Martenson does very well. It wasn't that positive of a film. It was realistic in that it explained there is two routes for us to go, we can ride the fossil fuel and destroy our ecology and environment or we can burn less fossil fuel and collapse our economies because they won't grow. I like that realism. It is recommended, it's a good film. Blind Spot.

Website: *******MrEnergyCzar**** This is my Chevy Volt question and answer video series, session number one, where I'm answering my followers questions directly and giving a shout out to their channels and questions. Featured followers channels: *******www.youtube****/autobatteries *******www.youtube****/electriccarvideos *******www.youtube****/urnzwayzmoove Autobatteries asks, "What is the Volt battery warranty?" For most of the country it's 8 years and 100,000 miles. For California residents it's 10 years 150,000 miles. After 8 to 10 years you should expect to lose about 10% to 30% of your original 38 mile range. This would put you at about a 25-28 mile range after 8 to 10 years which is excellent. Electriccarvideos asks, "Why isn't the Volt drivetrain duplicated across other GM cars such as the Cruze or the Malibu?" For many reasons but mostly because it costs a lot. The Volt drivetrain is just being scaled up now. They are looking to put it into a more expensive car at the end of 2013, the Cadillac ELR. I would expect that other GM vehicles will begin to have it, possibly a crossover vehicle, I don't officially know. Urnzwayzmoove asks, "What are your thoughts on the Nissan Leaf?" For a pure EV, it's a great car. Some people were getting a lease deal of $200 or $220 per month for a lease on a Leaf for three years. That is very cheap. My only concern is the batteries aren't liquid cooled. You have your range anxiety and the charging infrastructure isn't out there yet. If you need to go far, and that's your only car, that would be a problem for me. The reason I got the Volt was because I needed to have just one car with unlimited range. That's what is great about the Volt. The pure electric, such as the Ford Focus EV, has a liquied cooled battery. If I had to choose either a Leaf or Ford Focus EV, I'd choose the Ford Focus just because the batteries are liquid cooled. Keep those questions coming and I'll be sure to shout out your channel if I answer your question in the next video.
