Not much going on, so let’s get right to the reads for the weekend, shall we?
Last weekend, I moved from Tennessee to Wyoming. The reasons for my move are long and sordid, but I did want to share with you something interesting I saw on the looooooong drive: Wind turbines.
People wandering the streets of Philadelphia may be surprised to see brand new solar-studded trash cans being installed on the sidewalks. These new landfill-crunching compacting bins are entirely powered by the sun and are able to accept close to eight times as much waste as a regular trash can.
Alexandra Cousteau, has created Expedition: Blue Planet. In this segment, she discusses the how farming is creating a dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico.
Green prefab architecture firm Michelle Kaufmann Designs is calling it quits, a victim of the credit crisis and broader woes in the economy. In a letter sent over Memorial Day weekend, Kaufmann told clients the firm would close by the end of this week. She confirmed the news in a phone interview Tuesday afternoon. (This is too bad, really. Her houses were some of my favorites.)
Have a nice weekend everyone.
