A recent United Nations report concluded that a global shift toward a vegan diet is necessary to combat the worst effects of climate change. And the UN is not alone in its analysis. Researchers at the University of Chicago concluded that switching from a standard American diet to a vegan diet is more effective in the fight against climate change than switching from a standard American car to a hybrid.

The deforestation of the Brazilian rain forest is everyone’s concern.
A couple of interesting articles about LED Lighting. Definitely the future… CFL’s are just an interim step. When LED’s become as cheap as CFL’s (they already are cheaper if you factor in life of the bulbs), CFL’s will fall by the wayside. Background and overview of LED Lighting http://news.discovery.com/tech/one-hundred-watt-led-bulbs-lighting-up-110518.html LEDs used as wireless transmitters (Say … [Read more…]
