  1. Photo credit: pfala A common problem that I run into is that people think that it costs a lot of money to go green. In some cases this may be true, but there are a lot of small things we all can do to save a little energy. I've put together a list of things that cost under $30 that will save you energy. 1. Programmable Thermostat: Using a programmable thermostat can save you hundreds of dollars over the course of a year. The basic idea is to not heat or cool your home when you are not there. These can easily be purchased at your local hardware store and are fairly simple to install. 2.
  2. I read this somewhere not that long ago.. I think they are selling something like the Tata nano car.... I'll have to go back and figure out where I read that...
  3. I agree that would be a better idea! Here in Ann Arbor they are working on a county wide Wifi system. So everyone can have free wifi service anywhere they go. It's a little patchy right now, but once fully working well, you should be able to use it on the city busses.
  4. I could go on and on about the auto industry and debunk most the myths that people spread across the internet about GM. Don't get me wrong, the company did not do a good job at adapting to scale. When other car companies came onto the scene, they just kept building the same amount of cars. This lead to higher rebates on new cars and lower resale for used cars. This alone is why GM is in trouble. It has nothing to do with the cars they build (they get better milage than most apples to apples) and it has nothing to do with the UAW (workers pay is about 10% of the overhead). It's simply that they
  5. One thing I have noticed, is that since the economy has been down here in the US, that people are starting to lose the consume more attitude. People are liking the fact that we can sell them a lighting product that uses less electricity and will last for years. The sticker shock is going down as people are starting to see the true benifits of saving energy over the long haul. I agree that it's just a matter of time, and we will be easily over producing eletricity. Then it will be far easier to have solar and wind supporting our needs.
  6. Photo credit: kevindooley When most of us think of a community fair, we think of ferris wheels, halls of mirrors, rodeos and greasy food. Families come from miles around to ride the rides, watch the shows, look at the animals and stuff their faces. The good news is that local fairs are still going strong, the even better news is that more fairs are focused on being green. Green fairs seem to be a great new trend in communities. Instead of crazy rides and sloppy food, green fairs show off the latest green products, ideas and organic foods. A green fair might not have adrenalin pumping rides o
  7. I think they want to get large vans and small busses to transport people. They just want them to have internet on board. It's sounds like car pooling, but you can do some work while in the car.
  8. This is interesting. I personally come from the belief that we need to simply use less energy. We need to make things more energy efficient and we need to make things last longer.
  9. Why yes I do! If you are part of the link in your sig, we should do some cross marketing together!
  10. I just wanted to let everyone know about a great place to buy LED lighting products.
