Hybridization
Written by Hank Green on 11/04/06   

{mosimage}A majority of Americans now say that they'll be interested in purchasing a hybrid vehicle when they replace their next car. The news comes from a Gallup poll that also shows Americans are also doing their best to cut back on the amount that they drive. I hate to say it but, I don't really mind when gas prices go up, at least people make smarter decisions.

The problem, of course, is that lower income people are forced to make those decisions far before the upper class is. The majority of people who make more than 50 k a year still haven't cut back on the amount that they drive. The good news is that people of all income levels are interested in hybrid cars.

 
EcoYuppie, meet EcoHandyman
Written by Dave Burdick on 11/04/06   
Here's one for EcoYuppies:

"You eat free-range chicken, and organic vegetables when possible. You may have tried soy milk and levitra pfizer 50 mg Green Tea. You know the benefits of eating healthy food, yet many of us still surround ourselves with toxic products, and use appliances with 1920s technology, when there is an alternative."
Who doesn't like water?
Yeah. Well. I don't necessarily do all of viagra for sale no proscription that stuff, but I would like to not have toxic stuff around me.

The Eco Handyman, based in Boulder, Colo., pitches himself as a green alternative to the... Regular Handyman, I guess. He's listed a few eco-friendly project ideas on his site . He also answers questions (occasionally, it appears) here .
 
Of course, he's just one member of the Boulder Green Building Guild which is just one member of Greener Building , a resource that'll help you find all of the energy- and environment-friendly building materials you could want for when you start nesting and/or breeding.

Written by Dave Burdick on 11/04/06   
Having already collected delicious, swampy methane gas in the swamps at Lyndhurst, N.J., since 1987, the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission is setting its sights on moreNJ-solar-bon-jovi renewable energy growth .
 
Yesterday the try it buy levitra where commission dropped a press release saying they'd add 5 Megawatts' worth of solar panels as soon as possible, and have set a goal of securing 20 MW worth of renewable sources by the year 2020, possibly including "solar, tidal, wind, geothermal and other sources of renewable energy."
 
One other obvious (but oft-overlooked) benefit:
 
"These initiatives also aim to www.barefootfoundation.com attract cutting-edge technology companies and jobs to the area."
 
Jobs! Who couldn't use a job? So. If you want to be happier, healthier and cleaner, keep your eye on look there levitra canada generic the want ads for a gig in a New Jersey swamp. 
 
Next step for Jersey: get the Bonj, a guy who may already have a green streak, to start playing wind-powered concerts. And here's a link to give him the idea or ask him why he doesn't already do it.

Borders and Sony Partner for Ebooks
Written by Hank Green on 10/04/06   

{mosimage}Sony's new eBook reader (called the Sony Reader ) will be sold, not at Best Buy, but at Borders . We can all look forward to informational displays at Borders, Waldenbooks and where to buy viagra in scotland Books etc. stores across America. No word yet on other countries. The book stores will also be selling electronic books (though it seems odd that we'd have to drive to a bookstore to www.revistadeteatro.com buy something we could just download anyway).


In any case, this relationship marks the first real effort to get eBooks into the buy online prescription viagra American mainstream. Trees everywhere should wait to heave their relief until we see how well they sell. But I'm gung ho, I already own one of these pretty E-Ink eBooks, and I can't understand why the rest of viagra canda the world doesn't yet. (except that, yes, I had to order it from Japan and all of the instructions are in Japanese and the DRM was so horrible that I had to hack the firmware to make it functional.) So, yes, this new version has a much better chance at becoming an iPod for books.

LED Construction Signs Hacked.
Written by Hank Green on 10/04/06   

{mosimage}

Honestly, I've considered doing this before, but placed it above my personal level of expertise. Someone, or a group of someone's in or around the University of Toronto has figured out how to hack the construction signs and is cheap viagra online uk using them for environmental messages. Not only the ones shown here proclaiming “Don't Drive” and “Take Your SUV Back to levitra without prescription online Detroit” but also advertising a campus event on sustainability.

I'm impressed.  Rumor has it that a campus activist group, Cars Off Campus, is responsible. But I sure hope no one gets in trouble for that rumor.

 Check out this Movie of the signs in action.

Recording Industry Angry. But Why?
Written by Hank Green on 07/04/06   

We're used to dealing with resistance to change. Sometimes there's good reason, other times, not. The record industry's stats for 2005 are out and, SHOCK!, CD sales are down. But downloads are up.  From 144 million last year to 554 million units. The numbers show that the America's recording industry is recovering, but the viagra buy now recording industry is still crying foul, fighting the digital revolution with the stubbornness we've come to expect from the suits.

{mosimage} 

So they hate us for downloading their music. They're angry because they no longer have control over us. They can't create the next LP, the next 8-track, cassette tape or CD and force it on the consumer. It's out of their control because there's nothing left to create.

And when there's nothing left to create, everyone, including nature, can heave a sigh of relief.  Nothing has to be physically produced or shipped, musicians get paid for what they produce (music) not what the record companies produce (CDs) and consumers have more of buy viagra without prescription what America's recording industry really needs: Power.

The only ones suffering, of course, are the record companies. The internet took the viagra cheap plastic out of CDs and the power out of the recording industry.  Almost everyone can celebrate.

The Bird Turbine Myth
Written by Hank Green on 06/04/06   
{mosimage}This morning TreeHugger published a wonderful article on the true effects of wind turbines on birds.  Summary:  Yes, if you put something in the ground that birds can fly into, they'll fly into it.  But, no, turbines are not nearly as destructive as cars, buildings, or even the powerlines used to carry power from the wind fields.  Great article, very in depth, worth a read.  Well done John Laumer.

Bill Nye lives up to fast shipping viagra his name
Written by Hank Green on 06/04/06   
{mosimage}Bill Nye the Science Guy (who won 28 Emmy's for his science TV show), just made a splash in Texas.  His lecture at McLennan Community College in Waco Texas received rave reviews from everyone who wasn't angered by his dismemberment of creationism or dissapointment at our government's lack of interest in (and understanding of) climate change and resource depletion.  
 
Of all the places to make that stand...Waco Texas...where one mother dragged her three children from the room proclaiming "We Believe in God!"  Bill Nye, Represent!

VirtuSphere and Marine Envy

{mosimage}Ecogeeks love the virtual.

If you can experience something virtually (say, driving race cars downtown or combating aliens on a distant world) without having to mobilize the the best place levitra mexico resources required to actually go do it, the world benefits. 

So it is with mixed feelings that we take note of the VirtuSphere, a cool new training device for U.S. Marines, under development  at the Navy Research Laboratory. This nine-foot plastic ball is mounted on viagra no perscription usa rollers, enabling an occupant wearing virtual reality goggles to walk through any environment the computer can generate. Orientation sensors allows the "game" (ugh) to detect and www.calamusdesign.it respond to head movement, rifle aim, and shots taken. 

We love the idea—nay, drool at the prospect—of stepping into this unit personally to slay us some Covenant on Coagulation.

We just wish the military had similarly dorky intentions for it.

Spy Pigeons in the Sky
Written by Dave Burdick on 01/04/06   
{mosimage}H.G. posted about robotic fish that could eventually be used to monitor the environment with cameras and meters. We might be even closer, though, to using cyborg blog pigeons to monitor air pollution.

Okay, maybe they're not cyborgs so much as they are pigeons with naked network cards strapped to them. But the idea of sending 20 pigeons into the air above and around San Jose, Calif., each bearing GPS receivers, smog detectors and cell phones for texting back their findings is still futuristic in a very unique way: this is the visionwidget.com first piece of www.guenstige-versicherungen-online.de technology that I'm aware of that may actually defecate on our heads.

If these pigeons spread to other states, I hope somebody makes a GoogleMaps plug-in so we can keep an eye on where these pigeons hang out and avoid the area entirely.
