The Bottled Water Controversy

It’s funny. If you talk green and excercise your conciousness near others, it will only be so long before people will throw it back in your face, and call you a hypocrite. For example, I’ve recently been given a whole lotta gruff about my bottled water consumption. Here’s what we know about buying Bottled Water: […]

LAS VEGAS–A groundbreaking took place at Nellis Air Force Base, just north of Las Vegas, Nevada, in the desolate, arid, windswept Mojave Desert. The ceremony will initiate construction on what will be the largest solar photovoltaic (PV) array in the United States, capable of producing 15-18 megawatts of power. At least for a year or […]

Algae Farm to Produce 4.4 Million Gallons of Experimental Jet Fuel

An Arizona energy company is betting big on algae. PetroSun Biofuels has opened a commercial algae-to-biofuels farm on the Texas Gulf Coast near scenic Harlingen Texas.

Oooh Guurl…He Want My Vote Bad!

Looks like Obama really wants my vote. Democratic nominee and all-around superhero Barack Obama took the weekend “off” after a pretty low-key, non-eventful week and enjoyed a bike ride around Lake Michigan on Sunday. With gas prices now creeping ever-faster towards $5/gal, we’re happy to see the democratic contender enjoying a little two-wheel action. The […]

Ladies & Gentlemen, the Volts-Wagen

I love how he starts out his home vid picking up his little baby out of the car. Just kinda like, “Oh hello there! You just so happen to catch me in the middle of my perfect life alongside my Volts-Wagen!” Don’t get me wrong, I still want to be him.

Building Up instead of Out

These green buildings are a far stretch from the ugly concrete skin of low-rise development that have engulfed much of the world. It’s such a shame that creativity and attention to detail cost a premium. And play this song because it has nothing to do with anything in this blog: Sometimes – Erykah Badu

Celebrating Green Ink.

“The MTA will observe Earth Day (April 22nd) by stocking MetroCard vending machines with five million limited-edition green MetroCards. The cards aren’t “green” in the eco-friendly sense – they’re still not made from recycled material – they’re just, you know, green colored. So they’ve got that going for them. Oh, and some environmental factoids will […]
