Elephants are falling from the sky

The point of this video (Elephants) is that if co2 were elephants, 1.2 billion elephants would drop out of the sky and land somewhere in the US. Clever and concrete.

Sustainable Design

Link to book info:

Yikes! I haven't updated my blog for several weeks! I've been lost in a new book, by Jason McLennan called, "The Philosophy of Sustainable Design." It's well written, reads like a text book. Gives the history of Sustainable Design, who the giants are in the movement, how it got started etc. It gives the big picture and historical overview making it easy to see where we are at this moment in time. …A good book for anyone trying to get a better understanding of what needs to happen to move this agenda forward.

MIT is making stackable renewable rental cars

Thanks to new Green Friends on Twitter, I'm able to find really cool environmental news. Here is an example of what I'm finding. MIT is working on carbon free rental cars.  Another friend on Twitter likes this website (Alternative Energy News) for news on renewable energy.

Also  found some very innovative ideas, like underwater wave turbines!
