Many of you may have heard of the recent report fromscientists going to bat for endangered species. The list of 100 most at risk species raises some tough questions: Do humans having a moral/ethical responsibility to save species or do we leave things as survival of the fittest? If there isn't money to save all the species, do we prioritize and how do we decide what ought to be…Continue

Sometimes the doom and gloom of environmental issues get me down. So it is always refreshing to find new, cool inventions people are designing to bring some practical resolutions to the problems. You'll see a new post in news items on GreenLine today about a small company called BioLite, that's producing an efficient wood stove/ electric charger for developing nations. They started by first designing a popular…Continue

It makes for a great, and ironic in some ways,when a Texas farmer loses an eminent domain fight against a big transnational oil company. It is David vs. Goliath. It is agriculture vs. oil. It is Texas, where people generally love their oil producers. It is one of those issues that creates strange coalitions of Tea Partiers and conservatives with far-left…Continue

I must admit to being a little shocked to find out there is a formula for deciding which endangered species to save. I probably shouldn't have been, but it seems somehow wrong that such a formula exists. It means humans believe we can't and shouldn't save all species. Why? Because we don't have enough money to save them all.
At least that's the premise in this article from Business Insider.It…Continue

Northern New Mexico is home to a lot of small farms. It is the way families have long survived with little money and a small plot of land.
Urban gardening and farming seems to be making a come back as well with interest in a return to healthier, less processed foods. I stumbled across this cool little radio blog on Google called Small Home Farm Radio. Blogger Erin, raised on farms, ended up in the city at age 12. She yearned…Continue

I've long been fascinated by architecture and green building. My dream some day is to own a small, completely energy efficient, beautifully built house - the kind at least half the world could live in if they had a little financial help.
Here are some recent ones promoted by different designers:

Solar generation of electricty works well when the power produced matches the load.

On a happier note than black lung disease, here's one of the inventors coming up with the new products that can help move us off of coal-fired power and bring practical energy to even the poorest places in the world.
Santa Fe based nonprofit Bioneers carried a radio program today about Buckminster Fuller and his design genius. MIT architecture professor Shiela Kennedy is carrying on the genius with a portable energy producing project called MATx…Continue

Until U.S. policy makers and utility companies commit to moving the whole energy system off non renewable sources, a good portion of the electricity most of us use in Santa Fe and New Mexico at large comes from coal-fired power plants. The least policy makers can do is make sure existing laws are upheld and the health of coal miners is protected as much as possible from black lung disease. That's not happening according to a recent series of reports from NPR.…Continue
