Ha ha, just kidding. As usual, the self-congratulatory group present a plan that calls for halving today’s levels over the next 42 years. Dream big, guys, dream big. The one bright spot in the […]

Clean Office Air With a USB-Powered Mini-Greenhouse – GoodCleanTech

http://www.goodcleantech.com/2007/08/clean_office_air_with_a_usbpow.php A USB greenhouse. Perfect for drones like myself who will never attain the desirable window cubicle. Note that I am resisting the urge to make green-thumb-drive jokes – surely that is deserving of one of these, gift-wrapped and left on my desk?

http://titansix.stumbleupon.com/ Here I was all set to extend a warm welcome to TitanSix, when I notice he’s been around for a year, and leaves me in the dust, thumbs-given-wise!

EcoGeek – Brains for the Earth

http://www.ecogeek.org/ I came for the Superman joke, I stayed for the fantastic array of cool products and eco-friendly attitude. Think “CoolHunting” with less of the “me me me” hipsterism and more “us us us” proactivity.

Mass Extinction Underway | Biodiversity Crisis | Global Species Loss

http://www.well.com/user/davidu/extinction.html I say “I like it” but of course I don’t. Mass extinctions aren’t generally thumbs-up type affairs. Even more reason that people should try to do whatever they can to help out. Bush voters, this applies doubly to you.

http://wwf.ca/AboutWWF/WhoWeAre/Default.asp?lang=EN OK, bitches! Money—>where mouth is. I’ve been so obsessed with my whistling whales that I’ve decided to step up and do something about it. Starting next week, I’m a month-over-month charitable contributor to the World Wildlife Fund.

Two-thirds of worlds resources used up | Science | The Guardian
