A picture worth a thousand words...

Posted by Ethan Poole on Wednesday, May 26, 2010, In : BP Oil Spill 
Hi Neergs--

Check out these pics from the Huffington Post--my Dad's favorite website. You can learn a lot there--especially in their "Green" section.  Many of the pictures show emergency response teams preparing for the oil hitting the coastlines, which according to news reports started to happen last Friday.  If you know anyone living along the coast who is seeing the affects of the spill first hand, please invite them to share in our forums section and post links and pictures. 


Peace Out--E...

How do you feel about BP Oil Spill?

Posted by Ethan on Monday, May 17, 2010, In : BP Oil Spill 
 Hi Neergs--

I just uploaded some new videos about the oil spill in the Gulf.  The 60 minutes video is a must see! How do you feel about the finger pointing?  Who do you think is at fault?  

What do you think we can do right now?  Should we boycott BP oil and other products made from petroleum?  Should we start a petition to ban off-shore drilling?  Should we start a petition to demand a clean energy act?  Start getting your ideas together.  Stay tuned for a Green Kids Rock poll coming your way...

Posted by Ethan on Friday, May 7, 2010, In : Say "no" to plastics! 
Residents in Concord, MA just voted to ban plastic water bottles in their town.

Who cares is everyone else is doing it?  It's wrong. We should put the heat on all companies who package their stuff in plas...

Want to help the Gulf Coast?

Posted by Ethan on Wednesday, May 5, 2010, In : BP Oil Spill 
My Dad received an email from Courtney Taylor of the Environmental Defense Fund today. She said that there are three things we can do right now to provide assistance around the BP Oil Spill. Of course you need Mom, Dad or a guardian to help you with these. If you can't volunteer or donate, don't worry!  Staying engaged and reading up on the latest (see number 2) is really, really helpful.  

You can share your knowledge and advocate for this cause. Remember, advocating for a good cause is stand...

Oil Spill in Gulf

Posted by Ethan on Tuesday, May 4, 2010, In : BP Oil Spill 

By now I'm sure most of you know about this oil spill that is reportedly leaking almost 200,000 gallons of crude oil daily into the Gulf of Mexico. BP stilll hasn't figured out how to stop it.  There's a really interesting (and short!) story about three plans to stop the oil flow at

One plan is to use remote controlled submarines to shut off the valves underwater. This is kind of like robotic surgery 5000 feet under water int the dark!  Another more promising plan is to put a
