Feeling green and fuzzy inside!

Posted by Ethan on Tuesday, November 9, 2010, In : Reduce, Reuse, Recycle 
Hey Neergs!
Thought we should take a break and celebrate some of the positive stuff going on in our country. Instead of making you feel warm and fuzzy, these stories should make you feel green and fuzzy inside! Kind of weird, but nice just the same, LOL. Okay, so I was reading my very favorite green news section on the Huffington Post, and I found all kinds of awesome good stuff mixed in with the usual doom and gloom stuff--necessary to know, but sad still the same. And yes, I just had to boo...

Clean Air Act is 40!

Posted by Ethan on Wednesday, September 22, 2010,
Hey Neergs!

Well, it's the Clean Air Act's 40th Birthday. I know I should be celebrating. There are lots of reasons to of course.  Lisa P. Jackson, Administrator of the EPA, does an amazing job enumerating the reasons on her Huffington Post blog  (link below). And the Clean Air Act has been such an important piece of legislation for our country and the world without a doubt. Ms. Jackson runs the numbers--200,000 lives saved, decrease in heart and lung disease, significant reduction of common p...

No Trash for a Year?

Posted by Ethan on Thursday, July 15, 2010, In : Reduce, Reuse, Recycle 
Hey Neergs--

As a follow-up to the post on our "throw-away" society, I found a really cool article on the HuffingtonPost site. Amy and Adam Korst reduced their trash to four pounds over a year's time! They said that the average family produces 8 pounds of trash a day! How did they do it?  They refused to buy anything that produces trash--anything that cannot be recycled. If it doesn't come in recyclable packaging, they just don't buy it!  My family is far from perfect, but we are working very ...

Unstoppable Leak?

Posted by Ethan on Monday, July 5, 2010, In : BP Oil Spill 
Hey Neergs--

Check out this video with Keith Olbermann from MSNBC speaking with Bob Cavnar from the Huffington Post who is an oil industry expert. According to this report, the well is failing and leaking.  Believe it or not, letting the oil leak flow around the well head could alleviate pressure on the sea floor structure. The relief wells are the key to managing this disaster, so the race is on to complete construction. I think this is one of the best reports which explains the current statu...

Johann Hari: Must Read in Huffington Post Today

Posted by Ethan on Friday, June 25, 2010, In : BP Oil Spill 
Hey Neergs--

Please check out  Johann Hari's article in the Huffington Post today. He presents some scary facts from NASA.  We all know oil is spilling into our ocean in the Gulf, and is causing widespread devastation to the people and wildlife that live there.  But did you know that oil spills also release lots of gases into the atmosphere when they burn? Johann says these gases add to global warming. He reports NASA's findings that we could have the hottest year ever known.  Worse yet, his a...

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...
