I just realized that, in the flurry of activity last week, I never gave you anything to look at. Irresponsible and rude of me, I know. So, in abbreviated form, I will give you exciting green links from both last week and this one. Look at all this . . .
- Lot’s of information about dirt, where its going and how we can get it to stay put.
- Apparently in the distant past, before the Internet, people sent something called “letters”, they sometimes forgot the name of an obscure movie forever and they looked up businesses in an overweight tome known as The Yellow Pages. Unfortunately, despite the fact that their use for anything other than a doorstop or a booster seat has been long since eliminated, these Yellow Pages continue to be produced and delivered, wasting trees, fuel and cupboard space. Now you can help stop this irrational printing of business information and ads. Sign up to have your home and/or office removed from the unsolicited delivery of phone books.
- Solar panels without the huge upfront investment? Leave it to the Nutmeg State.
- I don’t believe a disagreement with liars to be a political statement, so I feel alright about using this apolitical blog space to ask why the hell there doesn’t seem to be an appropriate and effective response to the falsehoods repeated endlessly in the conservative media? Look at some of these oil related yarns that are being spun right now. Unfortunately, with 63% of Americans supporting off-shore drilling, it appears that merely repeating a lie often enough can make it true. Let’s try it . . . I have washboard abs, I have washboard abs, I have washboard abs . . . damn.
- What are some things we could make with 6 million dead carp? The 6 Million Carp Man . . . Carp Mahal . . . 6 million “Dead Carp Behind Your Fridge” practical jokes . . . Wall-to-wall Carp-et for a good section of Brooklyn . . . Sorry, those were bad, but the opportunity does make one think.
- We care about the earth, but does that mean we also have to care about bats? If so, we might want to see what we can do about our alternative energy solutions causing bats’ lungs to explode.
- Speaking of wind energy, the issue, as one would expect, gets more complicated as we start making more of it.
- We think energy is costing us a lot out of pocket, but that doesn’t even account for the cost of subsidizing the poor struggling energy companies.
