The Green Dream

Ever ask yourself if what you are hearing is the truth?

As a writer, I must confess that the news of the day has a detrimental effect on the creative process. With the Covid fiasco fading into the sunset, we have another disaster on the horizon. The media teases us with the phrase nuclear war. What would happen if? Could we survive? And the list goes on as to the stupid bullshit they promote for clicks or ratings.

One nuke gets turned loose, and the world as you know it is over. There are so many nukes in the world we could destroy the planet a hundred times over.

Have you ever wondered why people spend so much time and money on inventing better ways to kill each other than to just get along?

Gas prices topping $4 a gallon should be cause for alarm for most people. There is a push by the ‘squad,’ a progressive doltish bunch of politicians, to save the planet by using ‘green energy.’

There is nothing new under the sun, and this is true of this bunch of uninformed individuals who most certainly will be financially rewarded for pushing this agenda.

Here in the US, under the Bush regime, we were forced to give up Freon, a very efficient coolant for something that uses more energy to produce similar results that are much harder on the equipment.

Since it uses much higher pressures to achieve similar BTUs as freon, the equipment wears out faster, and often the coils used for transferring heat develop leaks.

This loss of freon was all predicated on a lie that we were destroying the ozone layer. In truth, the fluorocarbons in freon are much heavier than nitrogen-oxygen, so they don’t make it up high enough in the atmosphere to do any damage to the ozone layer.

I would love to know why other countries are still using freon if this was such a hair-on-fire issue. Do you suppose their leaders could not be purchased as easily as ours?

Then we had the light bulb fiasco. Replacing .25 cent bulbs with $12 bulbs would save the world. Yeah, they failed to mention that those bulbs contained mercury. They cannot simply be tossed into the garbage when they don’t live up to their expected lifetime. In fact, they are much more of a hazard to the environment than plain old incandescent bulbs ever could be. They also have been known to start fires.

Someone got rich from it. Now we have the LED bulb, which could also be a fire hazard. Dissembling failed or dead bulbs from infant mortality have proved shoddy workmanship to be the issue.

There is no secret that lawmakers pick winners and losers. Those who are for sale are the ones that lobbyists make sure to get the money. Special interests groups buy your lawmakers.

Isn’t there a branch of our government that is to look out for the consumer?

Both Russia and Ukraine are pumping tons of disinformation, ‘propaganda’ into society. My personal feelings on the matter are to stay the hell out of it. We don’t know the truth. Some of the videos I have seen look as though they came from a movie. Cell phone video and Hollywood quality video are distinguishable. Some of those videos seem to be cinematographically perfect, i.e., lighting and composition. Question everything.

The nightly news is rife with emotional triggers, but are they real? If you follow social media, you can see what they block, censor, or otherwise removed. From there, you can guess that whatever they don’t want you to see, you probably should see. Our lawmakers need to stop taking money from big tech. Our lawmakers work for us, not them.

If we were to take the world events at face value, it is no secret that the Biden, Bernie Sanders, and the Squad agenda are to have energy costs skyrocket. There are tons of money to be made in going green. This was also the Obama dream to move this country to forms of energy that would take us out of the competitive market for manufacturing or keeping up with other countries that use coal.

The fallacies are plenty, but for time and typing sake, let’s just tackle the EV.

At fifty-six thousand for an EV automobile, the price is way out of the range of most people. Unless you plan on revamping Hitler’s Volkswagen initiative, re-inventing the people’s car with batteries instead of a clunky 60 horse engine, I just don’t see it.

Batteries are the problem with an EV.

The chemicals needed to create batteries are not in the US like they are in China and even the middle east. Batteries have a finite lifetime, and then what do you do with them? Currently, a replacement set of batteries cost between $15K and $26K depending on your car.

When you leave your home with your EV fully charged, it is the equivalent of starting out your day with less than half a tank of gas. That, of course, varies by the age of the batteries and how much of a charge you have on them.

Here is one of many problems that the squad has not entertained.

Let’s say you are in Florida. The weather folks tell you that there is a hurricane headed your way. Like many others, you hop into your EV and head north out of the path of the storm.

Someone or maybe several someone’s stalls because their batteries were not charged or capable of taking a full charge. The main highway out of the affected area is blocked. Soon you too are out of juice because you run your AC while waiting for the traffic jam to clear.

It’s not like you are going to pull into an affected area and hunt for a charging station; the lights are already out due to the storm.

The technology is not ready for prime time, and it is way too expensive. Mayor Pete was a disaster in his hometown and is clueless when it comes to his job in this administration. If he knew anything at all, we would not be in the supply chain mess we are in.

Elon Musk is a visionary, bright person, and I would love to hear his take on what I have laid out.

Currently, we need to turn our oil and gas folks lose to do what they do best. Biden and company forcing our dependence on foreign oil is a disaster in the making.

If Russia is guilty, as the news portrays, then why in God’s name are we giving them $700 million a day for their gas? If what we see on the news is factual, he should be punished for his aggression. I would wager there is much more to it than what we hear on the news.

Biden did this. He is the cause for most of our economic woes. I don’t care how you voted. I would love a few mean tweets right now instead of an inflation rate at over 7.5% and energy prices increasing very quickly.

If Trump was still in office, I don’t think Ukraine would be under assault by Putin. I am certain that the PRK would not be testing missiles and that our inflation rate would not be at 7.5% and climbing.

All these economic woes roost with those who can least afford them, you and I. Large companies are not going to take the hit. They will pass them down to you.

Just possibly, you should turn your backyard into a victory garden.

If that term escapes you, look it up, and while you are there, learn some history. If we would teach history and critical thinking skills, people might just pay attention to how they vote. Your vote matters.

Cheers!

Ghost Signal from Colorado Springs

Was Tesla getting messages from Aliens?

I just have to gush over my own books. Yes, I really do as this one was so much fun to create. I take two parallel stories and meld them together on a crash course.

When you read the paragraphs, you will feel like you are the characters. Isn’t that the hallmark a good book?

When I was much younger sitting in the theater, I can remember the anxiety I had as the electric blanket was placed on the ice covering the monster entombed within. Had I not been in the theater I would have screamed at them to not put an electric blanket on ice!

When War of the Worlds was released, and we watched it again on the big screen how scary was that? As the Martian craft systematically exterminated people, I remember my anxiety as the two love interests are flying just above the tree line to escape the Martians. The subsequent crash and then the lady scared out of her wits is trying to take care of the newest man in her life.

When you read a book, it should be better than that.

Reading the words as the writer wrote them you become that character. You are inside their head and feel what they are feeling. When they are thousands of feet under the water in the submersible that is not tested to that depth you can hear the thing creaking as the pressure builds on the tiny craft.

You know that in an instance you could be crushed like a bug on the windshield and it causes you some minor anxiety.

Yeah for the writer and yeah for you!

In one of my other novels “Cyber Subs,” you become the girlfriend who is watching her best friend get on webcam slowly removing her clothes teasing the folks paying her to strip. You are just a few feet away, observing the action as something about it excites you. That feeling inside you that you are all too familiar with is there in an instant as you get up and cross over across the room and join her in front of the webcam. Wearing just a diaphanous gown suddenly it is you in front of hundreds of strangers expecting you to remove your clothing.

What do you do? Are you scared? Are you anxious? Are you turned on? Are you “misty?”

When I write it is the strangest thing, it is me in each and every character. I channel them as it were. Their dialect, their build and so on for the moment I am them. I desire to put enough of them into those words that you too can be them.

This last novel, Kitties Titties, and Winks is about as erotic as it gets with me. I don’t do sleaze as that is not who I am. I read EL James’s novels, and I knew that I could do better. The e-mails thus far are not from my regular readers, but they mostly say the same things so, let’s hope that the trend continues.

With Thirty novels out there written by yours truly, you should find something that interests you. Do not forget that Nudist of Shangri-La was inspired by you my readers, so I do listen to you. Do you have an idea of something you would read?

Let’s have it.

I am taking a little bit of time away from writing to market my current novels and build my brand. It is during this time that I am open to suggestions.

Email me at WWW.Authortwscott.com Check out the website and click on the contact page.

I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for taking time out of your day to allow me to be some small part of it.

I like to give back to you my readers and followers, and I desire to do so through this blog and by placing my novels out there inexpensively enough that anyone should not have trouble getting them.

If you take the time to let me know what you think of them, I do appreciate that. I get all sorts of e-mails with page numbers and such that I should look at this miss spelling or that one. Don’t get me wrong on this I do appreciate them. I make notes and then go back and fix them as time permits.

As always much Love…TW

Have a super great weekend!

My latest release! Ink is still wet!

Number 26 is published on both Amazon and Smashwords!!!!

After three months of toiling away over a hot keyboard, I put the finishing touches on it last night about 2 am!

Folks this is amazing!  I love how this book unfolded and how it turned out! “So will you.”

I believe that there is a niche market where science fiction and romance conjoin to make a good story.

I love romance stories, and l love Science Fiction.  It seems only natural to write a story that has both elements in it.

Unlike Saga of the Starduster, this one is YA.  Yes, there is implied sex but, nothing explicit. I think a young adult can handle that.

So let me tell you a little about this novel.

In a galaxy far far away …” too much?” There is a planet that is orbiting a binary star.  This binary sun is getting closer and closer to the other sun which they fear will Nova taking out the solar system.

What they do not realize is that Nova is not what they need to fear, if the two become one it turns into a magnatar which is deadly for the entire area. Not just that one solar system.

Anyway, they send out ships to find a new place to live.

There is a catch… A race of advanced beings with the weaponry to back it up have dubbed themselves the universal police.  They have laws which forbid contact with worlds that are pre-space.  Yea, I know that trope has been used before, but it is a good one.

The first race, the Bindane find the Earth.  Landing they find cave dwellers.  These creatures look little like what we do today.  Smaller brains, much hair, no verbal communication and oh yes, they will eat one another if they are hungry.

The Bindane are in a quandary, do we stay here and work with them, or keep looking…

They had been in space for many years.  Some of the Bindane leave without permission and have at it with the locals.  Flying around in their smaller ships, they explore much of the world and conquer it.  Having sex with who they choose soon human Bindane hybrids are running around.

Humans with an IQ of 60 and Bindane with an IQ of 250, you can quickly see what is going to happen.  The hybrids all of the sudden can solve puzzles, invent tools and find more efficient ways to kill.  This is why the Xylars, (other race) forbid this kind of activity.

Intelligence without wisdom and empathy make for smart evil people. Unless love is the foundation for who or what you are, the rest is meaningless.

Without giving away the story, it is an inexpensive read! $2.99 from either Smashwords or Amazon!

This book is well worth your time and I encourage you to check it out and please give me feedback.

I was going to write about Grammarly but I think writing about my newest release is a better use of my time.  I have some new tricks with Grammarly I am going to share with you in the days to come.  Is that a tease or what?

Yes, I want you to come back and I want you to tell your friends or family or even your mother In law!

You might like your mother in law… LOL

I will love your mother in law for some feedback… 🙂

We writers cannot rest on our laurels, however.  I already have an idea for #27 and I have an idea for a screenplay.  Which should I do first?

Much love -TW
