The Freecycle Network - 0 views

  •  
    Freecycle is for giving away items that you don't want to go into landfillls.
  •  
    This is not a "greenwashing." (Greenwashing is a new term coined for those who claim green and its not.) This is a grassroots effort of people who are giving things away for free -- keeping them out of landfills. What a great opportunity to share. My students and I are going to spend some time on here and we're going to register some items we have to freecycle. PLEASE PASS THIS ONE ALONG! What a great use of Web 2.

Michigan, Ground Zero For Sustainability, Struggling To Develop Wind Power : TreeHugger - 0 views

  • while surrounded by water resources that are the envy of half the population of the US and many arid nations
    • Ben W
       
      Michigan may see a resurgance in vitality as water resources become increasingly taxed elsewhere (i.e. Atlanta). MI is a state mostly free from worry about weather calamities (no hurricanes, flooding happens, but hasn't been horrible, forest fires are rare, and mudslides are unheard of), and may become a "safe haven" in the future.
  •  
    Describes MI's problems w/ adding serious wind power to the existing electrical grid. Calls for an improvement of transmission lines to be able to handle new energy sources.
