Jersey's tasty swamp-gas and solar power
Written by Dave Burdick on 11/04/06   
Having already collected delicious, swampy methane gas in the swamps at Lyndhurst, N.J., since 1987, the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission is setting its sights on moreNJ-solar-bon-jovi renewable energy growth .
 
Yesterday the commission dropped a press release saying they'd add 5 Megawatts' worth of solar panels as soon as possible, and have set a goal of securing 20 MW worth of renewable sources by the how can i buy cialis in canada year 2020, possibly including "solar, tidal, wind, geothermal and other sources of renewable energy."
 
One other obvious (but oft-overlooked) benefit:
 
"These initiatives also aim to attract cutting-edge technology companies and jobs to the area."
 
Jobs! Who couldn't use a job? So. If you want to be happier, healthier and cleaner, keep your eye on the want ads for a gig in a New Jersey swamp. 
 
Next step for Jersey: get the Bonj, a guy who may already have a green streak, to start playing wind-powered concerts. And here's a link to give him the idea or ask him why he doesn't already do it.

Borders and Sony Partner for Ebooks
Written by Hank Green on 10/04/06   

{mosimage}Sony's new eBook reader (called the Sony Reader ) will be sold, not at Best Buy, but at Borders . We can all look forward to informational displays at Borders, Waldenbooks and Books etc. stores across America. No word yet on other countries. The book stores will also be selling electronic books (though it seems odd that we'd have to indian cialis generic drive to a bookstore to buy something we could just download anyway).


In any case, this relationship marks the first real effort to get eBooks into the very good site cialis in india American mainstream. Trees everywhere should wait to lowest price on non generic levitra heave their relief until we see how well they sell. But I'm gung ho, I already own one of these pretty E-Ink eBooks, and I can't understand why the rest of the world doesn't yet. (except that, yes, I had to order it from Japan and www.americanfoods.com all of the instructions are in Japanese and the DRM was so horrible that I had to hack the firmware to make it functional.) So, yes, this new version has a much better chance at becoming an iPod for books.

LED Construction Signs Hacked.
Written by Hank Green on 10/04/06   

{mosimage}

Honestly, I've considered doing this before, but placed it above my personal level of expertise. Someone, or a group of someone's in or around the University of levitra 50 mg tablets Toronto has figured out how to hack the construction signs and is using them for environmental messages. Not only the ones shown here proclaiming “Don't Drive” and “Take Your SUV Back to Detroit” but also advertising a campus event on sustainability.

I'm impressed.  Rumor has it that a campus activist group, Cars Off Campus, is responsible. But I sure hope no one gets in trouble for that rumor.

 Check out this Movie of the signs in action.

Recording Industry Angry. But Why?
Written by Hank Green on 07/04/06   

We're used to dealing with resistance to change. Sometimes there's good reason, other times, not. The record industry's stats for 2005 are out and, SHOCK!, CD sales are down. But downloads are up.  From 144 million last year to 554 million units. The numbers show that the cialis brand name America's recording industry is recovering, but the cialis canada prescription recording industry is still crying foul, fighting the digital revolution with the stubbornness we've come to expect from the suits.

{mosimage} 

So they hate us for downloading their music. They're angry because they no longer have control over us. They can't create the next LP, the next 8-track, cassette tape or CD and force it on the consumer. It's out of their control because there's nothing left to http://www.shoreacres.net/real-levitra create.

And when there's nothing left to create, everyone, including nature, can heave a sigh of relief.  Nothing has to be physically produced or shipped, musicians get paid for what they produce (music) not what the record companies produce (CDs) and consumers have more of what America's recording industry really needs: Power.

The only ones suffering, of course, are the http://www.celebratinglife.org/buy-generic-cialis-cheap record companies. The internet took the plastic out of CDs and the power out of the recording industry.  Almost everyone can celebrate.

The Bird Turbine Myth
Written by Hank Green on 06/04/06   
{mosimage}This morning TreeHugger published a wonderful article on the true effects of wind turbines on buy viagra online 50mg birds.  Summary:  Yes, if you put something in the ground that birds can fly into, they'll fly into it.  But, no, turbines are not nearly as destructive as cars, buildings, or even the powerlines used to carry power from the wind fields.  Great article, very in depth, worth a read.  Well done John Laumer.

Bill Nye lives up to his name
Written by Hank Green on 06/04/06   
{mosimage}Bill Nye the Science Guy (who won 28 Emmy's for his science TV show), just made a splash in Texas.  His lecture at McLennan Community College in Waco Texas received rave reviews from everyone who wasn't angered by his dismemberment of creationism or dissapointment at our government's lack of cheap cialis from uk interest in (and understanding of) climate change and resource depletion.  
 
Of all the places to make that stand...Waco Texas...where one mother dragged her three children from the room proclaiming "We Believe in God!"  Bill Nye, Represent!

VirtuSphere and Marine Envy

{mosimage}Ecogeeks love the http://www.pjr.com/levitra-in-uk virtual.

If you can experience something virtually (say, driving race cars downtown or combating aliens on a distant world) without having to mobilize the resources required to actually go do it, the world benefits. 

So it is good choice cialis mexico with mixed feelings that we take note of the VirtuSphere, a cool new training device for U.S. Marines, under development  at the Navy Research Laboratory. This nine-foot plastic ball is mounted on rollers, enabling an occupant wearing virtual reality goggles to walk through any environment the computer can generate. Orientation sensors allows the "game" (ugh) to detect and respond to cheap viagra order online head movement, rifle aim, and shots taken. 

We love the idea—nay, drool at the prospect—of stepping into this unit personally to slay us some Covenant on Coagulation.

We just wish the military had similarly dorky intentions for it.

Spy Pigeons in the Sky
Written by Dave Burdick on 01/04/06   
{mosimage}H.G. posted about robotic fish that could eventually be used to monitor the environment with cameras and www.barefootfoundation.com meters. We might be even closer, though, to using cyborg blog pigeons to monitor air pollution.

Okay, maybe they're not cyborgs so much as they are pigeons with naked network cards strapped to them. But the idea of sending 20 pigeons into the air above and around San Jose, Calif., each bearing GPS receivers, smog detectors and cell phones for texting back their findings is still futuristic in a very unique way: this is the first piece of technology that I'm aware of that may actually defecate on our heads.

If these pigeons spread to other states, I hope somebody makes a GoogleMaps plug-in so we can keep an eye on where these pigeons hang out and avoid the area entirely.

iRex iLiad eBook rEader
Written by Hank Green on 01/04/06   
Continuing the path towards paperless books...

iRex has released it's specs for it's iliad ebook reader and I'm pretty excited. The only available ebook reader, the Sony Librie, has nothing on the next generation (of course, it has been three years since the Librie came out). {mosimage}

Same as Librie: High Resolution - MP3 plaer / audio jack - low energy consumption - monochrome display.

Better than Librie: Even Higher Resolution - No DRM - Reads TXT XHTML and PDF - 16 levels of gray (librie has 4) - wired and wireless internet - touchscreen - higher contrast ratio - compact flash, USB, and SD card inputs - the buttons are in ENGLISH! (the librie was only released in Japan.)

No word on the screen refresh rate (one of the major drawbacks of E-Ink,) we'll let you know as soon as we get our hands on it's cool viagra discount one. As for the price, probably around $300 or $400.

We'll keep you posted as more Iliad information is available.

w00t w0000t...Hybrid Train - Next Year
Written by Hank Green on 01/04/06   
{mosimage}The East Japan Railway Company will be introducing the world's first hybrid train in 2007. And I mean, why not? The energy needed to stop a behemoth commuter train can't be trivial.

The train runs soley on litium ion batteries until it reaches 30 mph. The deisel engine then kicks on and provides the boost needed to get the train really moving, and re-charge the batteries, if needed. Of course, the train's breaking also recharges the batteries, and the engine automatically shuts off when the train is in idle.

The hybrid system reduces particulate and www.grantontrailers.com NOx emissions by around 60% and improves the overall efficiency of cheapest cialis without prescription the train by around 10%. The Railway Company is click now brand viagra for sale also hoping that fuel batteries will become a viable alternative to fossil fuel engines, and has created the http://www.chemistswithoutborders.org/free-viagra train with the specific intent of eventually replacing the deisel engine with fuel batteries.
