Consumer Electronics Report Has Good and Bad News

If you’re looking to buy a new gadget, but want to figure out which brand is greenest, you’re in luck. The Consumer Electronics Association has released its first Environmental Sustainability Report showing how major electronic companies stack up when it comes to cialis tablets vs viagra sustainability.

The report covers a wide range of devices and examines companies like Dell, Nokia, Intel and Hewlett-Packard based on design, energy conservation, manufacturing, delivery strategies and charitable practices.

The report is us overnight cialis a mixture of good and bad news. In the past four years, companies saw a reduction in electricity use of 5-25% per one million dollars in revenue, but greenhouse gas emissions have increased by an average of 15% per one million dollars in revenue. A total of similar levitra 69 percent report active recycling programs but only 38 percent report reusing electronics whether whole or in part.

All companies have introduced more energy-efficient products, notably monitors, which have shown a 30 percent energy consumption reduction compared to older models.

The most interesting information is the brand-specific data. You can check out the full report here (PDF).


The Aluminum Mac it Green?

So Apple has once again managed to get the world all excited about some fancy new device...though I don't think anyone's quite certain exactly why this is so cool. In essence, Apple will be carving their new MacBooks out of one solid block of aluminum, certainly not as green as some of the we choice soft levitra tablets bamboo cases we've seen. The advantages, they say, are unsurpassed style and ultra-light weight. But I'm only concerned about one this thing going to save the earth...or destroy it?

Well, it turns out it's a little of both. The new process slices the computer case out of a 2.5 lb brick of highly processed aluminum. At the end of the process, there's a 0.5 lb case. So, right off the bat, Apple is creating a block of metal with a huge amount of embodied energy (from the mine through the final milling process) and the vast majority of it is just going into the pfizer viagra canada recycling bin to be re-melted and re-processed. Green? I think not.

The current Macbook cases (I'm typing on one right now) are simple, hard, white plastic. They're just as durable, and take far less energy to produce than a 2.5 lb brick of highly milled aluminum. I'm not sure what the advantage here is, but it's certainly not sustainability.

The other concern with Apple's gadgets is that they can sometimes be extremely difficult to repair. Aluminum-cased iPods sometimes can't even be repaired without scrapping the case entirely. Obviously that would be a big environmental no-no for Apple - to have to buy tramadol online without a prescription scrap a case every time an internal repair was needed.

But on other fronts, the new Macbooks are chock full of green cred. Their rated EPeat Gold, a measure of environmental friendliness of computers, something only a handful of other computers boast. They contain no mercury, no BFRs, no lead, and the LCD screens are backlit by highly efficient LEDs. They may even be just as green as the Macbook Air.

I'm glad to see Apple focusing on the efficiency of their computers, not to mention decreasing the amount of toxic materials they contain. But this new carved-brick process isn't green, it's wasteful, and I'm happy to be sticking with my good-ol' plastic clunker.


EPA Data and Google Earth Create Map of discount generic viagra usa rx Green Potential Across U.S.

Find a renewable site near you!

It seems that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has taken advantage of Web 2.0. They have recently released an interactive site that uses Google Earth as a platform to map out places across the only here canadian cialis and healthcare US that have high potential for renewable energy development. The information for this map comes from EPA databases.

The program allows the user to choose from a sidebar list of renewable energy types – various categories of solar, biomass and wind power. When one or several of these categories are checked, the map displays colored dots indicating locations that have shown high potential to produce the indicated type of energy. The dots are different colors depending on if they represent abandoned mine lands, brownfields, RCRA sites or Superfund sites.

Lands that fall into the above categories are potentially contaminated, and are generally unfit for traditional forms of development. In other words, it’s land that is not in the highest demand. For renewable energy projects, such pieces of look there discount generic levitra online real estate are attractive because they allow the renewable energy developers to avoid competing with developers and getting stalled by NIBMY complaints.

It was very exciting to get a visual impression of all the potential we have in this country. Some energy sources, such as utility-scale wind and solar power, are mostly available in the West/Southwest. But community-scale power and biomass power is buy tramadol buy cheap tramadol online available all across the country. So what are we waiting for?

Dell Laptops Going 100% LED

You know how compact fluorescent light bulbs have been so prominent in this early stage of this green technology revolution? Well, it turns out that flat screen displays have been using fluorescents from the beginning. Obviously, incandscents wouldn't work, so thin, cold-cathode fluorescent lights were used as LCD back lights.

But here at EcoGeek we've moved so far beyond CFLs that they're starting to seem like antiques. And we were glad today when we got an e-mail from Dell saying they felt the same way.

Dell is officially switching all of the back lights in their laptop screens from fluorescents to LEDs. LEDs are more efficient, allow for higher contrast ratios and they don't contain mercury like current fluorescents do.

The shift at Dell is certainly a signal that pretty much all flat screen monitors will soon be LED lit. And hopefully that means home applications won't be too far behind.

Shuttle D10: A Lot of Computer in a Little Space

We recently learned that Japan's landfills are full of precious metals that are locked up in discarded electronics, from cell phones to computers. So anytime something comes out of Japan that uses less material, it's a step in the right direction.

That's why the viagra uk cheap purchase buy Shuttle D10 deserves a shout-out. Mini laptops are common but there?s never been a good reason that made sense to me why desktops can?t be minaturized. The Shuttle D10 uses a built-in 7-inch LCD touch screen and discount cialis prices makes a keyboard, mouse and monitor unnecessary.

The system uses Intel Core 2 Duo,Core 2 Duo E4000 series, Dual-Core E2000 series, Celeron 400 series support FSB 800/1066/1333 (65W only) MHz support. The screen resolution at 800 x 480 resolution may require a monitor to be hooked up if it's your only computer, but it makes sense as a PC for a car or where space is a problem. At under $500, it's also a good price and will be released in Japan at the end of this week.
