Brazilian Garbage Collectors - Catadores now running on their own waste grease

This story was so popular that it disappeared from the feed here.

After checking out the reason, MIT shut off the feed because the bandwidth was exceeded by the user. :-)

In other words, it went viral.

So here's the google cache, and below that is the excerpted content in case the cache goes away too.…

OAEC hosts its annual Mother Garden Spring Plant Sale - Sat April 14th and Sun April 15th, 2012

Yesterday I was helping build some beautiful redwood tables for placing plants on. We had a production line going on the tables and just imagining how many plants they can hold was a good vision.

A master gardener, Doug Gosling has been adding to…

How I went from BioDiesel to Vegetable Oil in my Mercedes!

After paying premium prices, which I do not regret and am still happy about supporting the Biodiesel suppliers so they can make more and move into the market with greater supply, I finally started supplying myself as well.

This came about because of my vegetable oil stockpile was growing…

Went to super dump to recycle batteries, monitors, motherboards and metal - came home with this

Dropped off old stuff yesterday and brought in a humongous tank for Biodiesel, then immediately went to the back of a favorite local restaurant (where I eat often). I blew a fuse on my $130 diesel pump pushing 700 pounds of rice oil into this tank last night, then unloaded the tank and oil, then packed 3/4 ton of concrete my truck the next day. This truck was made in 1984 when they still put tie downs on the outside of the bed...so useful as you can see.

A new electric airplane took flight yesterday

A totally electric powered small airplane did a test flight on a runway much like the Wright brothers. The sleek yellow aircraft is shown in a video taxiing, then he takes off and gains about 30 feet, then descends and lands. This is the first test of what can be an affordable kit plane built on a popular chassis.

Green Companies List

I would like to start a green companies list. Maybe a blog, but would rather a forum where we could all add to it.

Formatting would be standardized for comparison: name, location, green

features, and personal evaluation or rating or even reviews.

We have a chance to get a behind the scenes tour of our local recycling facility, we hope to get video of that.

There is a potential meeting with the VP of new Biodiesel refinery from

Oakland in the works. I would also add my… Continue

Our planet

We are the stewards of our planet. It is not our duty to rape our planet of it environmental riches but to preserve them for a future generation to marvel, behold and enjoy. It is not our duty to profit and capitalize while turning our air from blue to a hazy brown all in the name of profits for investors.

Think about the things we purchase…

Earth Day #40

Today is the day. Personally I stretched up towards the sun, and bent down to the earth, experiencing the realization that I am part of the Earth, animated by the Sun.



The elements of stardust gathered by gravity into a ball and cooled to become rocks, showered with water from comets, thus becoming our Earth.



The sun showers our Earth with energy and breathes the water and the rocks to life.



That life eventually stands upon the surface and contemplates who and how and… Continue
