How Many Fortune 500 Companies Does it Take to Kill the Light Bulb?

{mosimage}
 
18Seconds.org is an absolutely gorgeous website (which can also be found at green.yahoo.com) that is keeping tabs on the spread of compact fluorescent light bulbs across the get viagra prescription United States. The site was created by a coalition, the largest members of which are Yahoo! and Wal-Mart, but also includes Environmental Defense and viagra 24 hour delivery uk the EPA.

Every state and reasonably large city (including my quaint little city, Missoula) has data represented at the site. That data is then broken down into dollars saved, pounds of coal saved and CO2 not released into the atmosphere.

The idea behind 18Seconds, and the coalition of companies, municipalities and organizations that support it, is that it only takes 18 Seconds (and several Fortune 500 companies) to change a light bulb. So why hasn't everyone done it yet?

I agree with them, it's a simple change that can have a profound effect. I applaud them in their effort, but expect that the low-quality bulbs Wal-Mart is selling is doing the cause more harm than good. More on that later.

In any case, the site is certainly worth a look, and if any EcoGeek out there is still buying Edison bulbs, for chrissake stop!

Windows Vista is cheap viagra no prescription soon going to begin advertising it's abilities to dramatically reduce the electricity costs of running a personal computer. The improvements in power save functions implemented by Vista, though, are fairly simple. Indeed, the question on my mind is "Why didn't they do it before now!"

I'm happy to be a part of it, you should try it out too.

Apparently Travelocity has partnered with the Conservation Fund to provide carbon offsets to it's customers. And they're advertising it with am absurdist bunny cartoon that I cant decide whether I like or not.

EcoIron: Green IT Blog

Hey, Amazing, I've got some more company. I've just come across ecoIron, a blog discussing all aspects of green computing and use viagra it is marvelous. I'm actually somewhat embarrassed that I'd never noticed the site before. They've been around for almost as long as EcoGeek and covering a lot of very good site canadian healthcare pharmacy the same stories. They're more focused on IT than we are, and they do it extremely well.

Today's article is on viagra herbal Green Supercomputing, which, frankly is a pretty big deal. ecoIron links to a cool site that measures the performance of various super-computers not by performance, but by performance per watt. The difference per machine is astonishing. Though, what's not surprising, is how comparatively inefficient the older machines are. If you're an EcoGeek reader with an eye for some high-quality IT ecogeekery, I suggest becoming an ecoIron reader as well.

 

Yahoo Green Autos

Yahoo has created an excellent new 'Green' section to autos.yahoo.com. They've established some kind of rating system (1-100) that will, hopefully, be updated as today's green cars pale in comparison to tomorrows.  They've also provided a labeling system to easily show what powers a car (hybrid, bio-diesel, ethanol and natural gas.)

Hats off to the team at Yahoo! for making this system available to the public.
