Back again to Tire World!

1939 Packard from the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Another day and more tires - but the countdown to San Francisco is picking up. I watched a really interesting show called "Big Ideas for a Little Planet" - another Sundance Channel show about sustainability and design, this episode focusing on the music industry's impact on the planet. Notable was Jack Johnson's label, Brushfire Records, for maintaining a nearly zero-impact recording studio by using solar paneling. They explain that the energy used from the solar panels is not subject to the power spikes encountered when "on the grid" and therefore the music is better sounding than when traditional power sources are used.
