This is a brand-new event that aims to create a collaboration between scientists, environmentalists, and artists, and it will also feature religious leaders, educators, and politicians. 
 
The performances and panels last from July 6-16th, and you can expect exhibitions at the saltlakewebcentral.com Museum of Contemporary Art/Denver, a collaboration with the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, guided tours of http://www.umlauf.de/buy-kamagra a coal-fired energy plant, and a performance by the Kronos quartet of "Sun Rings" with images of the solar system presented as they play. 
 
The best thing is that many of the lectures and walks are free, and the artistic performances usually come with a free pre-performance lecture. Visit the tickets Web site for more information.

Gore v. Clinton in 08?
Written by Dave Burdick on 08/05/06   
It seems like a lot of speculation about former veep Al Gore running for president{mosimage} in 2008 stems from recent press coverage of female cialis his various green endeavors -- particularly his global warming film, "An Inconvenient Truth."

Of course, if all it took to get elected were movies and press coverage, why any old movie star could -- say, wait a minute.

Anyway, the Wall Street Journal has a nice, easy piece on the ifs, ors and click here cheap discount cialis buts of a Gore campaign. Wouldn't it be something if Gore came back as the smart, forward-thinking environmentalist that he seems to be in the private sector?
 
Greening the paper trail
Written by Dave Burdick on 05/05/06   
Corporations interested in sustainability just previewed something called the Environmental Paper Assessment Tool,{mosimage} which is supposed to help identify the environmental pros and cons of using paper from different sources.
 
The tool is being promoted by Metafore, a non-profit that describes itself thusly:
 
"Metafore seeks out business and other civil society leaders who recognize the levitra mail order connection between business prosperity and forest integrity. Together, we collaborate to www.breinweb.nl create innovative market-based approaches that support thriving forests and communities." 
 
The mystery tool's makers admit that it's not the best it can be yet, but it's encouraging that big names like Bank of America are involved in the testing process.

I mean, banks use a lot of paper.

Not in relation to my account in particular, but I would imagine that if you had money or frequently made deposits, there would be a lot of paper.

I would imagine.
 
Anyway, here's a story about the viagra drug interactions tool in the Salem Statesman-Journal.  
And here's the PDF description of the tool on Metafore's site.

Urban bees make more honey
Written by Dave Burdick on 05/05/06   
London's got a big ol' population of beekeepers, and the hobby is on getting prescriptions for levitra the rise. In addition to keeping people in touch with {mosimage}nature while surrounded by an urban envorinment, beekeeping produces delightful local honey.

Furthermore, from the Independent online:
 
"Surprisingly, smoggy urban streets are said to provide a purer honey than rolling fields."

"Huh?" you're saying. Read on:

"'The countryside seems green and clean, but the crops are often covered in pesticides,' explains James Hammill, a former actor turned owner of The Hive Honey Shop in south London, which stocks honey produced at the Hammills' 40 hives across London and southern England. 'Bees in cities produce more honey. We get 40 to 50 jars per hive every season in our country apiaries; in the city, we get more like 150 jars.'"

Crazy and buy ultram no prescription delicious.
 
A greener military?
Welcome to the military's first hybrid -- the Heavy Expanded Mobility Technical Truck (HEMTT). This electric hybrid is levitra by mail proving to overnight levitra increase gas mileage by about 20% from its former 3-4 miles to the gallon.{mosimage}
 
The hybrid version took the roaring engine down to the purr of levitra pfizer india a sedan, but costs of the upgrade are still unknown. The generator can produce up to 300 kilowatts of power -- enough to power 50 homes for an indefinite amount of time. 
 
The vehicle is from Oshkosh Truck, who has made nearly 20,000 HEMTTs, with around 2,500 in use in Iraq.

Bush admin: maybe global warming exists, buuuut...
Written by Dave Burdick on 04/05/06   
Things just aren't going well for Bushies these days. Low approval ratings, the Texas Rangers probably aren't going to be able to sign Roger Clemens and now -- can you believe it? -- scientists who are totally doing science on the government's dime are claiming that global warming is a thing.

Like a real thing.

{mosimage}

The New York Times' Andrew C. Revkin checked out the government-commissioned report , released two days ago, and said this:

"The report's authors all agreed that their review of the data showed that the atmosphere was, in fact, warming in ways that generally meshed with computer simulations. The study said that the only factor that could explain the measured warming of Earth's average temperature over the last 50 years was the buildup heat-trapping gases, which are mainly emitted by burning coal and oil."

That's a big Hallibummer for the White House, but they stayed cheery by pointing out that this report was just the first of 21 on the subject, so they're not convinced yet.

You know how 4 out of buy tramadol fed ex 5 dentists recommend whatever the www.barefootfoundation.com hell? I'll bet the fifth dentist is going to be a very happy, very rich man before all of this is over.

Sliming riots: not just a great name for a H.S. punk band
Written by Dave Burdick on 04/05/06   
Okay, so EcoGeek points go to the geek who has the best reason that this is not a good idea (because I'm yet again skewing more "geek" than "eco"):
 
The Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas, is developing{mosimage} a riot-control weapon that shoots slime at unruly crowds so they slip and fall over.
 
"Riot police or troops would wear a back pack with three cylinders – one containing compressed air, another filled with plain water and a third containing a supply of very dry, finely ground, polyacrylamide powder. A nozzle, resembling a shower head, would blasts two separate jets, containing the water and the polymer powder, in the general direction of an ugly crowd.

"As the two jets mix in the air, after clearing the nozzle, they create a slimy mixture that covers the ground and causes everyone in the area to recommended site cheap levitra pills fall down. Even vehicles should be unable to get a grip on the goo, the patent says. And because the gel is non-toxic, it should cause no permanent harm, besides a few bruised bottoms, that is."


Slime? Really? I don't care how non-toxic something is, shooting slime all over the place has to be bad for something. I'm just not smart enough to know what it is. And that's my excuse for posting this at EcoGeek. Also, it's very funny.
 
Sometimes I miss "You Can Do That On Television ."
 
 
Automated Intersections
Written by Hank Green on 03/05/06   

{mosimage}How much gas is wasted at stop lights? How much of our lives? How much of our happiness is http://www.pereverges.cat/rx-cialis lost as we wait, inhaling fumes, blocked in on all sides by equally dissatisfied drivers. We don't really have stats on any of that, but we do know that 3.6 billion hours and 5 billion gallons of gas are wasted every year waiting in traffic.

Why do we do it? Because there's no better solution. But not for long! If we're gonna have to live with cars, we might as well find solutions to these horrible problems. Computer scientists at the University of Texas have created a program that can control simulated cars at a six-lane intersection without traffic lights or crashes . Of course, this assumes that every car is run by an automated system and buy tramadol online with e check I can imagine that it would be extremely frightening to be in one of natural viagra pills those cars.

This model is amazing, to watch a hundred rectangles headed for eminent doom before missing one another by the width of a pixel. Think of all the tramadol overnight gasoline that could be saved! But don't think about what would happen if the system crashed.

 You can also run the simulator with traffic lights, or you can design your own custom scenario (be careful though, cause I almost crashed my computer when I asked it to take control of an 18 lane highway.)

More cell towers in Yellowstone?
Written by Dave Burdick on 03/05/06   
There's a thing here somewhere. Yellowphone. Cellowstone. I don't know. But the point is, Yellowstone National Park officials are looking at what their spokesman calls "an environmental assessment for wireless communications."

The Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) nabbed some documents{mosimage} via that pesky Freedom of Information Act that showed that park officials had contacted a few telecommunications companies asking for ideas. No harm in asking for suggestions, I guess, but who wants cell towers in national parks?
 
Frankly, I'm okay if nobody can call me while I'm in the park. They should have just come with me in the first place.
 
And it's not as if there's no reception there now -- just spotty. The photo, by the way, is a tower that Yellowstone put up not too far from Old Faithful about five years ago.
 
Here's the AP story at CNN.com.
 
And here's the excitingly-titled "TELECOMS’ SECRET PLAN TO WIRE ENTIRE YELLOWSTONE PARK" press release at PEER's site. I'm getting shivers!
