My lawn is dead. Because I care.

One of a series of badges promoting water conservation by Katie McKissick

It’s summer. Here in the drought plagued Southwest US, it’s a badge of honor to not water your lawn. It’s even more of a badge of honor to replace it with xeriscape, create water-retaining structures like a berm-and-swale system, and recycle your . . . → Read More: My lawn is dead. Because I care.

Los Angeles is first major city to require Cool Roofs

Lighting section re-do

Our lighting section just got a major overhaul, courtesy of meticulous researcher Paul Robbins of the Austin Environmental Directory.

Paul sifted through a lot of material and presents a coherent and understandable overview of the differences between incandescent, fluorescent, CFL, and LED lights. He answers (with numbers to back it up) some of the common . . . → Read More: Lighting section re-do

The Solar Camel

I’ve been following posts from National Geographic journalist Paul Salopek as he walks the path of humans out of Africa, across Asia, over to Alaska, and down to Tierra Del Fuego – a journey that’s expected to take 7 years. So far it’s been a facinating read.
