I may be wrong, but I always assume that when web sites ask for personal info, they want to sell it to someone. Maybe I'm being paranoid, but I feel the same way you do, Jon. I never provide that information.

Very interesting points Island_Al. Thanks for your research. Certainly a number of those commenting are calling into question whether the study is measuring spending on energy efficiency or progress on energy efficiency. And they really are different things.

I agree Nadine. I think the pattern is that the bottom tier are poor states, which the upper tier includes wealthy states.

I'd be willing to bet that providing the information gets you onto their "sucker list" to be solicited for donations to help promote their agenda.  Also sold/shared with other so-called "green" groups (probably so designated because their main function is to raise more "green" this way).

An Israeli design student has created a series of unique pieces of jewelry that can harvest energy from default movements of the body and even use human blood as a way to conduct energy.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
Help us recognize engineers who are ahead of the trends and making big moves in the design engineering community.
Robots in films during the 2000s hit the big time; no longer are they the sidekicks of nerdy character actors. Robots we see on the big screen in recent years include Nicole Kidman, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Eddie Murphy. Top star of the era, Will Smith, takes a spin as a robot investigator in I, Robot. Robots (or androids or cyborgs) are fully mainstream in the 2000s.
