DIY Energy Monitor Takes Home Green Gadget Award

We've been waiting patiently for Inhabitat to pfizer viagra post the Awards ceremony for the viagra online from usa Core77 Green Design Contest before letting loose the results. And now they've done it, and here it is!

The video is full of thegracedarlinghotel.com.au little gems of ingenuity, but those of you who don't mind being spoiled can keep reading and cheap viagra soft tabs discover the surprise winner for yourself.

 

Greener Gadgets Keynote: Mass Consumption Photography

On the face of it, selecting photographer Chris Jordan as the keynote speaker for the Greener Gadgets Conference may seem like an odd choice...until you get a look at his work. He's best known in the green world for his collection Running the viagra in france Numbers, which attempts to show the results of our country's addiction to mass consumption.

"You can't go see the total amount of garbage we generate every day because it's divided out all over the country," Jordan told the sellout crowd of 400+ at the Greener Gadgets Conference. "I've devoted the last five years of best price generic viagra my life documenting the canadian generic viagra online detritus of our consumer culture and mass consumption".

Jordan combines photography with some deft Photoshop work to build up giant images showing the number of items Americans use in a certain period of time. Some of the images he's put together include the:

  • 410,000 paper cups used every 15 minutes
  • 2,000,000 plastic beverage bottles used every 15 minutes
  • 11,000 commercial flights every 8 hours
  • 426,000 cell phones "retired" every day
  • 1,140,000 brown paper supermarket bags used every hour
  • 106,000 aluminum cans used every 30 seconds
  • 60,000 plastic bags used every five seconds
  • 15,000,000 sheets of office paper every five minutes
  • 38,000 shipping containers, the number processed through American ports every 12 hours

Chris thinks that the green movement is happening, but is stalling out. He used the analogy of the finish of order cialis pill a bike race - everyone is rx cialis waiting for the other person to make the first move toward the finish line. He also believes that the green movement is hampered by the only for you buy viagra online without a prescription lack of cool. Michael Jordan changed the face of basketball fashion overnight when he showed up to the game wearing baggy shorts. Although people like Al Gore and Paul Hawkin are necessary to the environmental movement, they lack the cool factor of a green Michael Jordan.

Chris called upon all the conference attendees to http://www.accessibleadventuresvt.org/levitra-online-cheap find the passion for changing the world and to bring it back to their day-to-day lives and jobs. He definitely brings that passion to his work and I encourage you all to check out his site to learn more.

 

EnviroWonk.com Green Guide to Super Tuesday

You may not yet have noticed this, but EcoGeek has some new brethren. EnviroWonk.com is a new blog under the best quality cialis EcoGeek umbrella that will (finally) be bringing the blogosphere informed and interesting environmental analysis of U.S. and International politics.

Of course, right now, it's hard not to online order no prior prescription tramadol focus on the U.S. primaries (though there have already been stories ranging from funding cuts for sequestration to endangered species legislation.) But the primaries are what this little story is about.

Above is a listing of five people. One of them, in a very short period of time, will be the president of the United States of http://www.investordaily.com.au/online-levitra-cheap America. So it's time we started thinking about their environmental pros and www.asian-americans.com cons. So far, the choice is pretty clean cut for Republicans, McCain being the only one who seems to recognize that there, in fact, is an environment.

But for us Dems the choice is a little less clear. We hope this guide is helpful for those of us who'll be rushing the canadian viagra supplier polls in the biggest Super Tuesday in American history. It will be a historic day, let's hope the environment is at least somewhere in public's mind.

Greener Gadgets Conference Rocks!

The Greener Gadgets Conference is cheap cialis pills underway in NYC and so far we're hearing good things. If you, like me, are 100% EcoGeek but couldn't make it to the conference, you can keep tabs on the liveblog at Inhabitat.com.

Everything from consumer electronics executives to artists have been making their presence known at the conference and we're very excited that EcoGeek will be bringing you exclusive stories from the conference. So keep your eyes open.

 

 

Funky Wind Turbines Could Be Cheaper than Coal


Wind turbines don't seem to click now online cheap viagra have changed very much in the last few decades. Yes, they've gotten a heck of a lot bigger. And I will tell you that the innards of the devices have been the subject of industrial espionage and patent wars.

But they look pretty much the same.

Which might lead you to believe that there's not much we can do to make wind turbines much more efficient than they already are. But "FloDesign" seems to think that is not the case. For the first time since I started EcoGeek, I'm seeing horizontal axis wind turbine that doesn't look like a great-big propeller.

What it does look like is a great big jet engine. And maybe that makes sense, as jet engines are more efficient than props in driving airplanes. I'm afraid I can't explain the technology, because fluid dynamics are way over my head, but the designers of the turbine are making some fascinating claims.

There is a theoretical limit to how efficient wind turbines can be. But the designers of this turbine say that it removes whatever limitation makes that constant apply, and thus these turbines can be far more efficient and cost-effective:

A stator-rotor turbine cascade design is used to more effectively extract energy from the flow. For a given wind velocity, a MEWT having a maximum diameter 50% smaller than an existing 3-Bladed HAWT can potentially generate over 50% more power, and can potentially cost 25-35% less than the same HAWT.

So we're talking about a 25% decrease in cost with 50% more power generated. If I'm doing the numbers right, that makes wind significantly cheaper than coal throughout the entire Midwest United States. But this is still at the early stages of research and development. There needs to be a lot of work done before we'll know anything for sure. But I will say that FloDesign is officially in my RSS reader...I can't wait to hear what news they've got next.
