Wired Goes Green

This month's issue of Wired magazine is all about the old environmental problems and a whole new set of environmental answers. It's the first issue of Wired I've bought in a long time, and the pfizer levitra canada most hopeful piece of literature I've seen come out of the environmental movement...ever.

{mosimage}The cover, featuring an eerie picture of Al Gore, espouses “The Pro-Tech, Pro-Growth Fight to Stop Global Warming.” The magazine includes feature stories on Neo-Greens , people who understand, care and vote with their wallets, and one particularly ecogeeky article on “The Next Green Revolution .”

The thesis of where can i buy real cialis this article (written by World Changing Editor Alex Steffen) is that technology isn't anti-environmental intrinsically, it's anti-environmental because most of it was conceived before we had a clue how the planet worked. The answer to www.fluestertuete.de our problems, thus, is not avoiding technology, but embracing and restructuring it.

“You don't change the world by hiding in the woods, wearing a hair shirt, or buying indulgences in the form of save the earth bumper stickers. You do it by articulating a vision for the future and pursuing it with all the ingenuity humanity can muster.”

Thanks Alex, for writing a possible mission statement for EcoGeek that includes the generic levitra next day delivery phrase “Hair Shirt,” we definitely could never have done that on our own.

Is this article overly-optimistic, Utopian techno-pandering? Or is it a more clear outline of the future of the environmental movement? Probably both. And certainly worth reading.

 

Now Catfish is the New Diesel?

A mere two days ago we EcoGeeks reported on a refined method of converting plain old coal into diesel motor fuel. Now, struggling to maintain a straight face, we point to an even better raw feedstock for the production of non-petroleum truck energy: {mosimage}

Catfish.

Yep, according to this article on vnagency.com a crafty and determined Vietnamese innovator has successfully developed a method of producing diesel fuel using the oil and offal from catfish. Evidently the quarter million tons of levitra buying online catfish generated in the Mekong Delta each year are now yielding the handy co-product of 30,000 tons of diesel fuel, at least some of which is actively being used to operate a brick making plant.

We have no way to confirm any of what is reported in this story, and it's scant on details to be sure. But we like the idea. Real bio-diesel is cialis pfizer canada a good thing, and this article attests to cheapest propecia prescription the ability of human ingenuity to think our way out of the ridiculous petro-addiction we modern societies are suffering.

Imagine, catfish as the theglobalobservatory.org new source of global transportation energy, fueling our trucks, cars, and trains. The South could rise again! I dream of a day, after Peak Oil has come and best viagra prices gone, when impoverished Middle Eastern Mullahs, look on vizuka.com in nostalgic envy as the Southern U.S. states assume their rightful place as the source of a globally critical energy reserve:

Catfish!
 
 

Ho-hum swimming robot

Man, you can't swing a data-obsessed scientist anymore without hitting a data-gathering robot of some kind.{mosimage}
 
A "robot" named Spray is "swimming" from Greenland to Spain, sending daily e-mail updates to its fleshen masters, who can adjust its course via the things GPS receiver. Ooh, a data-gathering robot with a GPS receiver. How creative.
 
Okay yeah, it's cool that this robot will be gathering data on salinity, temperature and other things to keep tabs on the ocean's climate, but it's a little creepy that the scientists in charge want to deploy a ton more by 2011 and call them robotic underwater sentinels.
 
Also, am I wrong in saying that it looks a lot more like a missile than a robot?
 
How hard would it have been, Scripps Institute of best price cialis Oceanography and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, if you're already going to the trouble of calling it a robot to visit web site purchase levitra online give it googly eyes or a square, painted-on mouth?
 
All I'm saying is I wouldn't want to be reaching for  the autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) and accidentally grab a torpedo. But what do I know? 
 
 

Greenpeace founder gone Nuclear

The founder of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore , has an article in the Washington Post this week championing nuclear power. I know this sounds really weird. But it sounds less weird if we consider that the coal industry is flattening the mountains of Appalachia, killing workers in mines and emitting 67% of America's carbon dioxide.

If we're worried about global warming (and here at EcoGeek, we are) then we need viable alternatives. The only real alternative we have right now is nuclear. EcoGeek, as of yet, doesn't have a clear position beyond “More Research is Necessary,” but Moore's opinions have swayed us somewhat.

He mentions the commonly listed claims against nuclear power and rebuts each in turn. He does not mention uranium mining as a disadvantage of nuclear power, though I consider it to be possibly the second most environmentally hazardous part of the whole process. But it's hard to imagine uranium mining doing more damage than mountain-top-removal coal mining.

Weakening his argument, though, is that Moore is co-chairing the Clean and Safe Energy Coalition with Christine Todd Whitman , Bush's head of cialis gel the EPA. Environmentalists hate Christine Todd Whitman, mostly because she censored government documents concerning the viagra cost with prescription threat of global warming. This coalition (paid for by the nuclear power industry) is either an amazing and inspiring alliance of people who love the earth and people who have the technology to save it, or it may be an underhanded and cialis in the usa evil ploy.

But, for now, we're listening. Nuclear power is i use it canadian pharmacy online a few steps away from being the dream of an EcoGeek. And, really, it's hard to imagine anything could be more destructive than coal.
