COSTA MESA — A local manufacturer of personal mobility vehicles, T3 Motion Inc., is a finalist for company of the year through CleanTech OC, the manufacturer announced last week. International sales of electric vehicles manufactured by T3 Motion, used for private and government security purposes, include distribution in Mexico, Argentina, South Africa, Kuwait, Singapore and France, according to a June article in the Daily Pilot.

When an oilman and environmentalists agree, you know the momentum for real change is building. In Denver last week, Texas oil billionaire T. Boone Pickens and Sierra Club Executive Director Carl Pope talked about the Pickens Plan, which calls for huge increases in investment and production of wind power and using American natural gas as a transition. Americans should take notice — while more drilling for oil might enrich big oil companies trying to wring every drop out of oil profits before the inevitable, the real economic opportunity lies not with the failed ideas of the past but with real investment in the transition to a clean energy economy.

Newport Beach opened its first natural gas fueling station Wednesday. The $1-million facility at the General Services Corporation Yard, 592 Superior Ave., allows the city to power its fleet of vehicles with cleaner-burning compressed natural gas, officials said. The station, which will be open to the public and operate at all hours, was made possible through a partnership between Newport Beach and Clean Energy, an alternative energy transportation company. Newport Beach let Clean Energy build the gas station on city land, rent free.

U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is giving his bill on solar power another try, reintroducing it Wednesday in the new session of the House of Representatives. Rohrabacher’s bill, which he introduced in the last session as well, would let companies skip requirements to complete an environmental impact statement before building solar projects on land controlled by the Bureau of Land Management. Rohrabacher has criticized the bureau for having a backlog of applications to build such projects, and called current environmental regulations an impediment to clean energy.

COSTA MESA — Ikea is planning to light up its store using the power of the sun. The Sweden-based furniture chain last week applied for a permit with the city to install solar panels on the roof of its South Coast Drive store, said Khanh Nguyen, a Costa Mesa building official. "We've been following solar energy technology as it's been advancing, and now we concluded that it's definitely feasible for us to efficiently and effectively implement the solar-energy programs at certain stores," said Ikea spokesman Joseph Roth.

I recently toured the National Fuel Cell Research Center at UC Irvine, the leading fuel cell research facility nationwide. The widespread availability of this technology in the future would greatly benefit California’s economic vitality and help it become energy independent. The increase in the state’s population and electricity usage are outpacing our capacity to produce electricity. We urgently need to develop alternative sources of electrical energy. Another issue facing the state stems from our importing 16% of our electricity from out-of-state coal-fired power plants.

President Obama was greeted with cheers of "Four more years!" as he entered Jeff and Nancy Stack's beige-colored stone home situated on a small hill overlooking the ocean. Many of the 170 supporters, seated at tables under a white tent in the backyard took photos as the president arrived about 10 a.m. Thursday. "We're proving that Orange County is Obama country," Janet Keller said as she introduced Obama, comparing his visit to Corona del Mar to a trip President Franklin Roosevelt took through the town 74 years ago after another well-known fiscal crisis.

Joe Bell’s column (“Compromise is the way to go,” Nov. 13) reflected little insight about the core issues involved in the pro-life platform. As always, Bell employs his “I’m such a reasonable nice guy” attitude to suggest that both sides should admit abortion is “sorta” wrong. True pro-life activists fight for what they believe is the preservation and dignity of human life, once it has begun in the womb. They are not reactionary prudes who think sex is dirty and must be punished by the burden of having a child.
