  1. Vermont shuts down Fukushima-type nuclear power plant

    Good! Its better to focus on renewables instead.
  2. I am moving to a new house soon with a big garden. So I was just wondering how I can make my new garden as green and eco-friendly as possible? For the moment it only has a two trees, some bushes and large areas of grass. But I want flowers, some nice bushes and maybe even a little pond.
  3. Like I said in another topic in this forum: I am moving to a new house soon which has a big garden. Or rather it has a big boring lawn. For the next summer I want a garden full of flowers that will attract bees and keep them safe. So which plants and flowers will attract bees the best?
  4. Nuclear Radiation

    How could you miss the news about Fukushima and the massive earthquake in Japan? It was on all channels, internet and newspapers, and everywhere else!?
  5. I think we have all seen this amazing photo... and here is the true story behind it! When this photograph was first published in Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife and later in Paris Match and the Daily Mail (London) it resulted in a flurry of e-mails, phone calls and letters from around the world asking if the image was a fake. The image became the most talked about of shark photograph ever. The photograph is real, no photoshop, no digital manipulation, no nothing, in fact it was shot on slide film Fuji Provia 100 using a Nikon F5 Camera and 17-35 mm lens. For those conspiracy fans who still doubt its authenticity please read how I took the photograph... Read the full story here
  6. Nuclear Makes You Stupid!

    Nuclear radiation makes you stupid. At least thats what this new study has found: "Students born in regions of Sweden with higher fallout [from Chernobyl] performed worse in secondary school, in mathematics in particular. ...our findings suggest that cognitive ability is compromised at radiation doses currently considered harmless."

  7. New Year's eve resolution?

    This blog post got me thinking: '?do=embed' frameborder='0' data-embedContent>> I will actually have 2 New Year's eve resolutions. The first is to start working out, again. Yes its a really original promise. The second is to eat less meat in 2014. What's yours?
  8. This video is quite good! Sure the installation costs of wind power might be high, but once they are up and running wind power will save us money. Australia's Renewable Energy Target Explained The renewable energy target is hard to understand for many consumers, so we made this video to make it easier and explain how it can make a positive impact on your household bills.
  9. Higher sea levels is a serious threat to nuclear power plants: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/19/maps-rising-seas-storms-threaten-flood-coastal-nuclear-power-plants_n_5233306.html During Superstorm Sandy, for example, flooding threatened the water intake systems at the Oyster Creek and Salem nuclear power plants in New Jersey. As a safety precaution, both plants were powered down. But even when a plant is not operating, the spent fuel stored on-site, typically uranium, will continue to emit heat and must be cooled using equipment that relies on the plant's own power. Flooding can cause a loss of power, and in serious conditions it can damage backup generators. Without a cooling system, reactors can overheat and damage the facility to the point of releasing radioactive material.
  10. DESERTEC project, Sahara Sun could power Europe by 2050

    See, we dont need Nuclear! Its possible to Power all of Europe with renewable energy.
  11. How Rising Seas Could Sink Nuclear Plants

    Its not just rising sea levels that pose a threat to Nuclear plants. The heat is also a problem for nukes, especially now during the summer. And it will only get worse with global warming!
  12. New Apple ad advertises green power, not products

    Its always good to be skeptical of Corporations that claim that they are green!
  13. LOL thats horrible but pretty funny at the same time.
  14. The EPA has been under-counting how much methane, which is 20-40 times more powerful a greenhouse gas than CO2, fracking emits at drilling sites, new research shows. "The study, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, adds to a growing body of research that suggests the EPA is gravely underestimating methane emissions from oil and gas operations." http://www.latimes.com/science/sciencenow/la-sci-sn-methane-emissions-natural-gas-fracking-20140414,0,2417418.story
  15. World Wind Power Poised to Bounce Back after Slowing in 2013

    Good news. Renewables are the future!
  16. New design! Feedback welcomed!

    And I love the new energy forums!
  17. After Fukushima Japan Invests in Coal Industry

    Sad news indeed. Japan should instead focus on energy efficiency and ramping up their renewable power capacity. Didn't Greenpeace last year show how Japan could replace their entire nuclear fleet with renewables, efficiency and smart management?
  18. New design! Feedback welcomed!

    New website looks good. Reminds me a little of old greenblog.
  19. Nice to see the progress Google, Apple and Facebook has made!
  20. Gas is not green! This whole post sounds like corporate propaganda... :[
  21. Report bugs and errors on the new Green Blog website

    When will the FrontPage be fixed? It still looks bad on my phone... :/
  22. Artificial Photosynthesis

    Do you know how widespread the use of solar fuels and artificial photosynthesis is today? Is it a viable alternative or just fancy talk? ;)
  23. Why choose the lesser of two evils when there are better alternatives!?
