good site and eco geek
A must-read for all ecogeeks. Although lately there have been a bit too much focus on cars...
As Technology can be a force for evil or for awesome, it is up to us to choose and filter what ours spirits desire to feed ."EcoGeek was conceived and founded (and is run and edited) by Hank Green. Hank spends most of his time thinking about how our brains can save our planet and has, in the last few years, become something of an expert on the subject."
EcoGeek has complete information about green environment and also publish up to 10 stories daily about innovations that are saving our planet. :)
love tech, love this earth, love learning
Eco Geek - just read a few articles and I feel greener and geekier already. Love it!
At Last, We The People Get Moving
National Wind is providing much needed support to communities that want wind power. Headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the company develops and manages utility scale (50 MW or more) community wind energy projects. It creates local limited liability companies, sharing ownership with the community members and allowing greater ability to generate and maintain wind farms. This is a huge boon for wind development on smaller scales. Rather than massive wind farms that generate huge amounts of power, this company helps communities create their own farms, generate their own power, and not have to rely on big business to do it.
That exhaust system looks a lot like a resonant expansion chamber for a 4 stroke engine. It's much larger though. having the exhaust gases remain at a high pressure through the first portion of the exhaust system and then flowing into that expansion chamber causes a shockwave to travel in reverse, this allows for an instant of high pressure at the exhaust port when it is just about to close. that definitely would keep fuel vapor inside the crank case until the port closes. great idea!
EcoGeek is now on my daily news reading list.
EcoGeek is one of my favorite sites on the net, your one stop shop for all green tech and gadgetry.
Algae is going primetime with Shell jumping on as the first major oil company to adopt it for diesel production. Not only does algae solve the problem of using land to produce fuel rather than food, an argument against biofuels, but algae also produces oil that "can be readily be converted to diesel, and can be fed CO2 directly from smokestacks." Lastly, the green guys have such an efficient photosynthesis process that the first plant is slated to produce 15 times more oil per area than any other biofuel.
Hopefully we'll see more oil companies diving into new eco-friendly technologies to get us away from traditional fossil fuels.
So they can feed this stuff CO2 to grow ... but correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn't there still be a problem as the diesel will be BURNED as fuel, thus re-emitting CO2? Wouldn't it be better to find a true alternative? Or is algea-diesel also emissions-free?
An upbeat site with eco-technology news and innovative environmental products. The blog is frequently updated and it leaves you feeling excited about the future, rather than depressed about climate change or bad government policies.
This is a quick way to find out some of the best green innovations around. Exciting stuff and not really geeky, except in a good way.
Yay! Environmentalists who aren't technophobes!
Making environmentalism fun. Great site.
