ECOstrive – Seems like it’s been forever, since I’ve updated this site. A lot has happened in the last couple of years. A123 Systems went bankrupt, even though they had a great battery technology.

This complaint by the NFB has caused the radical environmentalists to send threats to NFB President Marc Maurer suggesting that the members of his group should be the first to drown when sea levels rise from global warming. This is a perfect example of the lack of tolerance of these supposedly tolerant environmental groups. Continue reading Environmentalists target blind people
