The west coast of Namibia gets less than two inches of rainfall per year, but The Economist reports that an MIT graduate student and his colleagues have found a solution in the form of a local beetle and the way it transforms fog into water. Read more…

Yachts Going Green

As you may have heard me say before, it’s hip to be green.  Well that has taken on new meaning with the emergence of more eco-friendly yachts.  Finally, you don’t have to feel guilty while cruising around in your oceanic palace that costs more than Central America’s collective GDP.  Even a medium-sized yacht (so weak) can rip through several hundred liters of diesel hourly.  Not to mention the electricity needed to power the jacuzzi(s) and sauna(s) would be enough to light up Mozambique for weeks.

The Eleventh Hour is a documentary about global warming featuring biologist, environmentalist, and political leaders. After watching the film, discussions were immediately sparked between my friends and I about what our generation needs to do in order to save our planet. Read more…

“Reduce, Reuse, Recycle,” “Turn off the lights when you leave a room,” “Time yourself in the shower so that you don’t waste water,” “Go Green!” and all the rest.  You all have heard these before and more.   However, after a long day at the office or a stupid hard dilemma faces us, we tend to forget and ignore these little things.

If technology has and continues to bridge gaps of all kinds, it makes sense that an app would be developed that seeks to decrease water bottle consumption. How? Well, it’s simple. Help consumers locate alternatives- like drinking fountains. Read more…

The largest accidental offshore oil spill in history occurred one year ago, when an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico—50 miles from southeast Louisiana—blew out. Although it is still too early for a full account of the long-term effect of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, its one-year anniversary is cause for reflection. Read more…

So the sun puts out enough energy in one second to power the United States for 9,000 years.  Please take a moment to appreciate that independently researched statistic.  I do it cuz I love you.  It seems like for some time now humans have been trying to efficiently harness some of that energy, and I’m not talking about maladjusted kids lighting ants on fire or stoner nerds find a butane-free alternative to spark their bingers.   BrightSource, a company based in Oakland, announced on April 11th that they had secured a $1.6 billion loan from Uncle Sam on top of the $168 million gave them for the Ivanpah power solar power plant in the Southern California desert.

Happy Earth Day 2011 everyone!  Earth Day is the designated day of the year to take a step back and appreciate the environment and all that it does for us.  Unfortunately, between global climate change and mismanagement of natural resources, the environment is not as healthy as it could be.  Days like Earth Day remind us of what we should be directing our focus towards.  However, I feel that many people do not know the full history of how Earth Day came into fruition.

Earth Day often evokes images of VW Buses, the White House, hippies with long blond hair and peace signs hanging from their necks.  Though we are not in the 1970s anymore, we are still reminded of the responsibility we have to conserve our natural resources.  So, the question remains, what will you do?

Hey sliders, climbers, lovers, and nature conscience peoples,

It has been a while since I have checked in from down south in Guatemala.  I now have nearly spent eight months in the country supported by the Peace Corps.  My activities here have been varied, sea turtle conservation, environmental education, lifeguard training and management, and most recently, beginning the process of building a school room out of trash.  Though these varied activities may put one to think how busy, active, progressive, and inspiring this experience is, the truth is, my original optimism has been gradually replaced with understanding and humility.  The most fundamental aspect in creating change is creating new patterns of thought, new ways of seeing the world, and reinforcing this consciousness.

Keep reading and continue greening!
