Assessing America's alternative energy future

Watch "Fareed Zakaria GPS," Sundays at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. ET on CNN

The crisis in Iraq and Syria, fueled by oil. The crisis in Ukraine, greatly complicated by natural gas. So what if we lived in a world that was powered by something other than these hydrocarbons we are so dependent on. That's a world that Vinod Khosla is betting on, quite literally. Khosla was the founding CEO of Sun Microsystems. He now runs his own firm, Khosla Ventures, and is the 352nd richest person in America, according to Forbes. In recent years, most of his energy has gone into finding promising alternate energy technologies, and investing in them.

Watch the video for the interview for his take on the future of alternative energy.

    So @ Philip...its your belief that unwanted pregnacies are solely the fault of "promiscuous girls?" Well i think its YOUR turn to """GET A CLUE"""!!!! If you h o r n e y MEN and BOYS would keep it in your pants that might help considerably doncha think??? I VOTE that men be on birth control by law unless they are married! How about that. Girls dont do this all by theirselves ya know! There are a heckuva lot of toads out there impregnating girls as often as they like and never look back! Hows that for MEDS?

      Never said that, Chrissy. It takes two to tangle. It's either the fault or the goodness of both parents that cause pregnancies. Both are responsible and so both should be held accountable either for good or bad. And so BOTH have a say in these matters, as true justice requires.

        What of it's a joint decision to end the pregnancy?

        September 17, 2014 at 10:48 pm |

        Then it's a joint decision just as Adam and Eve made. As long as both parties have a say, justice is satisfied. If one parry is left out, there is no justice.

        Actually, you did say that. To quote you: "Most single women and grandparents stuck raising grandchildren of their promiscuous daughters have little girls drugged straight-up with Prozac these days. Ritalin is the fav used on boys."

        You being up aboerion in any context, it becomes the issue.and if you don't understand exactly why stem cells from dead aborted feasible aren't viable for stem cell research, you should probably abstain from using it as some springboard to address another one of your topics.

      The topic is alternative fuels. Not hydrocarbons, Chrissy. Yes. We should be taxed according to our carbon footprints. Interestingly, the avg. American's carbon footprint is larger than the avg. African family's carbon footprint. Al Gore's is roughly 8 times larger than the avg. African village print. And he drives a freaking Prius to boot!
      Chrissy? Your Ford F-150 has a larger carbon footprint than I do. So you might not want to vote Yes on taxation according to carbon footprint size. 🙂

        Dead fetuses is not a alternative fuel source. Dead fetuses cannot be used to replace the petrol products currently being used in meds. This whole line of thinking is bunk.

      That could very well be, Chrissy. (My having children that I am unaware of) I was a foolish young man...easy prey for ugly women disguising themselves behind layers of make up. Even covering their stench with cheap American made perfumes designed to confuse the male hormone. I was 15 when this 28 year old married woman "rayped" me.
      But I'm old now, Chrissy. And have put such things as chasing after ho bags behind me. I have raised one lovely daughter and now gave an adopted one to love and cherish and raise up proper. Though you would insinuate I adopted her for nefarious reasons. Because that's just what's on your mind, and fo no other reason..

      I didn't mention the abortion issue in my first comment, Chrissy. I just said that the next generation of mind altering prescription drugs are being made out of fetal stem cells. And that as a result, the price of oil will drop because pharmaceutical products won't be made out of crude oil anymore.

        I didn't raise the abortion issue here, banasy. I even commented on that issue being settled long ago by the Supreme Court. I was simply trying to show that dead fetuses are a viable source of alternative energy, and that billions of barrels of crude oil will be saved once the next generation of pharmaceutical products get the nod from, not you or I, but from the FDA allowing Rx drugs to be made of stem cells rather than crude oil.

        Sure was.
        Now, can you give the repeatedly-asked for citation that the SC and pro-choice advocates have said that eating aborted fetuses is okey dokey? Because you did state that.

        September 17, 2014 at 6:21 pm |
      • Philip

        Banasy. It is common knowledge that eating meat that is not human meat is OK. If you eat human meat, you are practicing cannibalism.
        That said, the Supreme Court and pro-choice advocates agree: aborted fetuses were never humans.
        Get it?
        As for your requested obesity citation, why not ask where gravel is. There are thousands of links pertaining to America's ongoing obesity epidemic, for many many years now.

        September 17, 2014 at 6:46 pm |
      • banasy©

        So, you cannot back up your assertion that the SC and pro-choicers have said they'd be down with eating aborted fetuses. Okay.
        You're just being hyperbolic and taking gigantic leaps for nothing more than shock value.
        Words have consequences and meaning Philip. You merely lied.
        Get it?

        I didn't ask about articles about obesity. I asked you where you specificically got your 38.5 number from. Your cited article didn't provide that.

        September 17, 2014 at 7:12 pm |
      • banasy©

        And the SC never said anything about the fetus not being human in Roe vs Wade.

        September 17, 2014 at 7:33 pm |
      • Philip

        It is a well known FACT that neither the Supreme Court nor pro-choice advocates view aborted fetuses as humans. For example, YOU @banasy. You do NOT view legally aborted fetuses as being humans. So, since legally aborted fetuses were never human, one can safely eat meat product of legally aborted fetuses without fear of being accused of cannibalism.
        Watson! My cane! Sheesh.

        September 17, 2014 at 7:52 pm |
      • banasy©

        1) The only one advocating for eating aborted fetuses is you. Nobody else. You. As a matter of fact, you are the only one I've ever seen advocating for eating aborted fetuses, which is rather strange, considering you are anti-abortion.

        2) Stem cells cannot be harvested from aborted fetuses. Therefore, they will not be replacing petrochemicals in medicines any time soon.
        There, rendering your whole argument of "the future of energy lies in aborted fetuses" moot.

        3) @banasy. You do NOT view legally aborted fetuses as being humans. So, since legally aborted fetuses were never human, one can safely eat meat product of legally aborted fetuses without fear of being accused of cannibalism.

        Please post where I have ever said this, Philip. Otherwise, keep your delusions as to what I think to yourself.

        Again, the only person who is advocating eating aborted fetuses is you. You and you alone.

    Your stats on women's waistlines was off by an inch, Philip.

    Measured average height, weight, and waist circumference for adults ages 20 years and over
    Height (inches): 69.3
    Weight (pounds): 195.5
    Waist circumference (inches): 39.7
    Height (inches): 63.8
    Weight (pounds): 166.2

      Before the overly obese King James had a special bible translated to his personal specifications, English bibles used the word Grave to describe where humans go after dying. Not Hell as KJV said in spite of what all other bibles said at the time.

In fact hes the very BEST poster boy to ALL females to promote CELIBACY and SINGLENESS cuz, well you know....we all wish to be verbally, mentally and emotionally ABUSED by a pig of a ahem * man* like that! NOT!

    And @ Phlip 6 whole years is NOT raising a child! And my ex husband is all of the above that i mentioned. Hes very lucky that he had 4 children who attempted to love him when he had no idea HOW nor the inclination to TRY! He was an abusive husband, father and now a grandfather! WHAT would any SANE person do but run as far away as possible. And @ dont tar all with the same brush, I KNOW THIS! I had great role models and i thank god for that because had i not i most likely wouldve thouth THAT behavior was normal and DEFINITELY wouldnt be alive to talk about it now. And please read my post again because i did NOT say all men...i said MANY!

    @ Philip's 5:51 post,you most certainly did SAY that it was promiscuous young girls that are the root cause of unwanted children leaving them for grandparants to raise and you said it here @ 2:39 pm. Remember you are in America and once its on the internet it stays there! So if you wish to not be called out on YOUR lies i suggest you STOP publishing them!!!

    I DID NOT SAY ALL DADS ARE LOSERS not now not ever. I SAID a great many of them and i did NOT say losers. I happened to have a great father. Good thing i did or i may have thought a husband beating his wife in front of his daughters, and telling them this is what they can expect when they get married was perfectly NORMAL! My dad taught me that was not the case, and thank God my daughters had HIM in their lives instead of their donor father because THEIR husbands have never abused them! So yes i do KNOW the difference! And one other thing i personally know is a fact..yes physical abuse is an awful thing, but the pain from THAT goes away after awhile. The mental, emotional and verbal abuse NEVER goes away!!! Its there for a lifetime, and i KNOW Philip KNOWs that as well!

      Curiously, you left out se xual and spiritual abuse in your listing of child abuses. Any particular reason why?

        Oh....just a guess....she doesn't spiritually or sexually abuse her kids? And she got out of a bad marriage before their kids suffered? What is WRONG with you? Dear God, seek some help for the twisted way your mind works.

        Oh, can it LaBella. She listed all sorts of child abuse except two. I highly doubt she physically abused her kids and was NOT insinuating she se xually or spiritually abused them either. Am just CURIOUS as to why she left out the two most common forms of child abuse from her list. Sheesh.

        She was clearly talking about her own family and marriage situation. Not everyone's marriage was like yours.

    And @ only trying to help...if you wanta know why im angry today when i am generally NOT an angry person? Read all the snide and offensive things Philip has called banasy and i particularly and ALL women in general. They are posted on these threads for at least a week and quite possibly longer! And then has the audacity to say he never said that. THEN come back and tell LONG would YOU take that before you decide you've had enough?

      Check that, Chrissy. Liberal and conservative women. I did not mention moderate women at all. So, at best you are 33% incorrect in your online in-depth and nauseous analysis of moi. 🙂

        Do you not understand what she just posted, or do you not know how to place a reply properly? Drunk posting? What? You didn't say anything addressing what she said at all.

    @ Philip, i never used party affiliation in ANY of MY posts and i rarely do. Nor did i address yours! As for CNN being cruel you can run THAT to the dump where it belongs cuz its you who has been the cruel one! Since the 1st day you began posting on this particular blog! Something happened to you somewhere over the past few years i dont know what and ive given up careing! We used to be good friends but whatever happened made you a cruel man. You took our friendship and used it to be as cruel and obnoxious as possible knowing full well that I particularly, would not tolerate that forever! Now heres hoping you have as great a nite as you give others! Que sara sara!

    Clearly we had a huge topic change here 🙂 I suppose I should state my view or stand in the matter as well (even though I never had any children of my own and I never married)... In my view women should have the right to decide when it comes to making a choice about what is clearly a decision that concerns their body. No government, law or authority should restrict them or decide what is right for them. In other words, a woman should have all the right when it comes to abortion. I also think think that a child needs a father and a mother equally in it's development. Under some situations, a single mother or a father can raise a child without any issues or negative impact on a child's development. In most cases though, I think having both parents is a huge difference. This is why when 2 adults decide to have children, they have to be committed 100% and be willing to make some sacrifices for their well being. Unfortunately, more Americans than ever are staying single. Is this a good trend or a bad one? What concerns me are the children.. They need both parents.

      I am happily married and happily raising 2 kids. It is actually a lot of fun. It is all about team work. After 21 years together, me & my wife have learned to fight fair, be nice, raise our kids very well and most important live, love and laugh together............ I guess we are among the lucky few.......

      Unwanted pregnancies are a matter for JUSTICE to decide and the weighty burden of deciding what should be done with the unwanted baby should NOT be thrown on the shoulders of one single woman.
      Everyone admits that the secret to a happy family is a mother and a father deciding important matters TOGETHER, not apart. True Justice requires hearing from BOTH parties involved in wrongdoing. BOTH, not just one side of the story. And do we not have court appointed children's advocates who speak-out on behalf of unwanted children? Why, YES! We do. And so to be consistent, Justice requires someone speaking on behalf of the unwanted child at the center of the abortion issue.
      We should NOT just hear the woman's side of the story. Lives other than her own are at stake. Lives of MILLIONS of prospective American citizens: Unwanted living human fetuses. NOT just clumps of meat in some woman's gut as pro-choice advocates claim.

      Lmao. I mentioned the word ABORTION and you jumped on me like some crazy lady driving around in the mud in a truck with bad brakes and a broken frame.
      You pro-choice advocates are EXPOSED! First you claim that aborted fetuses are not and have never been human and at the same time are appalled at the thought of using fetus meat for anything other than throwing into the bloody trash can.
      You all KNOW that clump of meat was at one time a LIVING HUMAN FETUS...a prospective American...and is why you oppose fetal stem cells being used to replace petrochemicals as your next generation of FDA approved drugs. Bit you WILL eat those Rx drugs whenever your good doktor tells you to. Without question you will continue to follow your good doktors orders no matter what! For this is what over 1/2 of all Americans have been doing since NAZI made mind altering Rx drugs became available in the USA after WWII.
      Stubborn pill poppers and dope smokers are US.

        =>For the last time, you uneducated lout, only YOU brought up eating dead fetuses. YOU ARE EXPOSED FOR YOUR LIES.
        =>For the last time, STEM CELLS CANNOT BE HARVESTED FROM DEAD FETUSES BECAUSE ONLY LIVE STEM CELLS ARE USED FOR RESEARCH. Either link this BS, or s t f u with your garbage. A
        and yes, I'm shouting. It's because of uneducated morons like YOU that stem cell research ground to a halt. Stem cell research doesn't equal abortion, AND IT NEVER FLIPPING HAS!
        =>You mentioned abortion as a way to get your LIES out there. YOU LIED FROM THE FIRST MENTION OF ABORTION, and you are STILL lying about it.

    @ happilly married, treasure those moments, each and every one ;)! And you are so very right...that IS how and should be! ALL children deserve that unfortunately many never get that! I was so very fortunate with my children and as one is now terminally ill with only weeks to live i have finally stopped beating myself up for not tolerating the abuse just to keep their father in their lives! And do you know why? Because she told me that i really did what HAD to be done or we very well may have all been dead years ago. And then she told me all the enjoyment we had in our family once he was gone couldnt and wouldnt have been traded by them to keep him in their lives! What im trying to say is to short so make the most of it!
