Ice in your drink

I just found this article about Ginny Catania, a Glacioologist. I kid you not, someone who studies glaciers. A very timely topic with the recent story “Slab of Antartic Ice Shelf Collapses Amid Warming” from Reuters and over at ENN.

Anyway, here’s the interview over at ReGeneration.

I guess you could call this fun friday

This first one comes courtesy of Inhabitat by Ali Kriscenski and is entitled “Ice Penguins by 50graus/50degrees”.  It’s purpose is to make a point on global warming and the decline of the Emperor Penguins. I love the pictures.

The next article, over at ENN and the New York Times, is called “Energy Saving Program in Seattle Puts Consumers in Control”. It involves 112 households being put in charge to to set temperature and price preferences.

“Going Global by Going Green” by Ilan Brat. This article discusses the idea of going green bu using a garbage-disposal. It’s over at the Wall Street Journal.

This last article made me laugh. It’s entitled “City Sues Man for Going Zero Waste” by Lloyd Alter at Treehugger.  Have a green weekend.

Those in need of water

On a more somber note, I’ve found two articles that are perhaps telling tales to global warming or maybe just examples of the need to conserve our resources. I’ll let you decide

The first is a recent article in the New York Times about the shrinking of the Great Lakes. You can can also fine it here at this blog about buildings.

The second one is an article is just another in a long line of articles about the drought in the southeast. This one is entitled “Southeast drought hits crisis point” in USA Today.
