Here are the green links for this week! I have to say, the news get more interesting every week. In the links are articles ranging from the environmental impact of nuclear, introduction of new electric/hybrid cars to how LCD waste could prevent bacterial infections. What is this world going to think of next?
- Solar Panels Luring Insects to Their Deaths via Discovery News. Before, you scoff and throw up your hands up on me thinking I went too far off the green deep end, insects are important and not just pests. (Couldn’t help myself.) As a gardener, the insect food chain is really important to keeping my garden healthy.
- Hands On: Smart Fortwo’s Electric Car via PC Mag
- NORTHEAST COLLABORATIVE FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE SCHOOLS. Great article about how all schools can be high performance schools. Facility managers, this is a must read article.
- LCD Television Waste Could Help Prevent Bacterial Infections. I found this article to be extremely interesting since LCD television waste is horrendous and ends up in many third world countries’ backyards.
- Debunking the myth of the internet as energy hog, again: How information technology is good for climate
- A $100 Million Pool for Solar Financing. Making solar affordable is the key to harnessing the sun. There are now lease options available. Enjoy the benefits of a cheaper kilowatt price without the upfront cost of the system.
- Researchers harness pee for hydrogen and battery power. yes another invention for urine. Now the poor man’s hydrogen and battery power rather than the poor man’s fertilizer!
