Decrease Your Carbon Footprint With Carbon Offset Credits

For your next birthday, how about a gift card full of nothing?

Grid Integration of Renewable Energy

There has been significant development of green energy generation technologies in the past couple of years. The emphasis however has largely been on the “generation” aspect of energy and negligible in the “transportation” aspect. By transportation I refer to the process of delivering the energy across to a large number of consumers in an economical andefficient manner.

McCains Electric Car Battery Prize May Be A Bit Short Sighted

Republicans have favored “Big Oil” when it comes to energy policies and recently created quite a bit of criticism when they voted vehemently against taxing big oil’s windfall profit, even if it meant axing tax credits and subsidies to the cleantech industry.

Green Chic Fashion Trends

From hippie to hip: “Green chic” isn’t just for tree-huggers We, the people, love to shop. But on average, just sixth months after purchasing consumer goods just one percent remains. It’s true: 99 percent of goods bought by Americans is in the dump half a year later. Food, light bulbs, packaging, clothes, electronics – due to […]

Green Living Begins At Home

Go into any grocery store, big-box retailer, or shopping mall these days, and you’ll notice “green” products practically jumping off the shelves into your cart. People are growing increasingly concerned about the state of the environment, and marketers have picked up on that fact. Sometimes it seems like “green” has become just another advertising slogan. In […]

Google.org Focuses On Green Energy With Recharge It & REC

Google has come a long way since its nascent days as a speedy search engine. Its employment of only the best and brightest has led to the successful development of programs like Gmail and Google Earth. They just think of everything, combining the best features of the programs in competition, without the glitches. 

Walmart Helping to Lead Green Initiative in Corporate America

Not so long ago, “going green” was seen as something that was only important to granola-crunching hippies. Fortunately for all of us and the planet we live on, times have changed. As the effects of global warming and pollution become harder and harder to ignore, people have become more eager to do something about it.
