Gore Officially Campaigning...Poorly

I know this isn't officially a politics blog, but I like Al Gore, I believe that he is an EcoGeek, and I would love to eatingdisorderrecovery.com have an EcoGeek president.

Check out this interview. The guy asks Gore a couple of very interesting questions to which Gore gives very interesting answers.

The second interesting question first: If climate change is such a big deal, then couldn't you pretty much save the world by becoming president?  Isn't that a good enough reason to run?

Gore answered "I think it's still to early, I can't use that answer for much longer." But it isn't an answer he's been using for very long. At the beginning of An Inconvenient Truth, he didn't use that answer at all. It was a flat "no," which only transformed into a "maybe" a few months ago.
 
Gore was also asked about the Iraq War, and basically whether he, as president,  would retreat defeated from the Iraq War. Instead of using his famous "Bus Crashed, Fire Bus Driver" metaphor, he stumbled, said some incoherent B.S. and then moved onto the next question.

It was like Y2K Gore All Over Again!  What he's doing here is trying to seem more thoughtful about Iraq, a very divisive issue, while relying on climate change to be his main bedfellow. What he's actually doing is looking like a total weenie again, which is exactly what lost him the election in 2000. So Gore is levitra tablet officially campaigning, and he's officially looking like a dipstick doing it....alas.

A company in Paso Robles, California called Daniels Wood Land makes custom and luxurious tree houses fortreehouse1 adults and children.  Their tree houses sell from $7,000 up to $1 million.  Daniels Wood Land is not the only company that makes these exotic tree houses.  O2 Sustainability Tree Houses makes tent-like houses made out of aluminum and canvas, which are suspended from branches.  O2 calls them canopy tree houses which run around $18,800.  TreeHouse Co. in Kilmarnock, Scotland also makes custom tree houses.  This company built a custom tree house for the Duke and only for you levitra canada generic Duchess of Northumberland.  The tree house was one of the largest wooden tree houses in the world.  It was 6,000 square feet and contained a 120-seat restaurant, a retail shop, two classrooms, and two private dining rooms.  This giant tree house cost around $6 million.

A Very EcoGeek Vacation: Monkey Bay

monkeybaySometimes vacationing can be difficult for an EcoGeek. It's best to find something sustainable and close to http://www.americanfoods.com/canadian-pharmacy-online nature...but only if there's high speed internet.  If you really want to get back to nature, without losing touch, check out The Monkey Bay Wildlife Sanctuary.  It is only a few miles from Belize City and it is located in Central Belize.  Monkey Bay is a very unique campground located within 1,070 acres of tropical forest, riverine and savanna habitats.  It also Borders the Sibun River which flows from the Maya Mountains to the Caribbean Sea.   

What makes this a choice vacation spot for an EcoGeek is the fact that not only is it an environmentalist paradise, it is also full of neat technology, both advanced and old fashioned.  The entire campground is powered by a small array of photovoltaic panels and a small wind turbine, so there is always electricity available in the cabins and throughout the campground.  Monkey Bay also offers broadband wireless internet for their guests.  You may bring your own laptop or use the campground's PowerBook G3.  Now that is a vacation, laying in a hammock in the middle of a tropical forest looking up the latest articles on EcoGeek.com on your laptop.  Monkey Bay also offers a natural history library with over 500 references.  

The majority of the drinking and bathing water in the campground is supplied by rainwater.  The showers are heated by passive solar heating; they are simply stored in large black barrels and gravity feed down to the shower stall.  Another extremely interesting part of the Monkey Bay campground is an unexpected relationship between the outhouses and the kitchen.  The outhouses are designed to capture the methane gas from your waste and that gas is then transferred into the kitchen to power the stove burners. Not only is this amazingly sustainable, it's also just gross enough to give you an amazing story to tell your friends.

This is one vacation spot that this EcoGeek would love to go to again.  And for those of you who are college bound EcoGeeks, Monkey Bay offers internships, courses, and homestays with native Belizeans.
