Three Do * Good Blogs
I came across two interesting blogs over the holidays:
World Changing: Another World is Here and Treehugger: The Future is Green. Find it Here.
World Changing is like the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer version of Treehugger. 21 contributing editors from all over the world post extensive articles about tools, models and ideas for building a better future. Jamais Cascio posted two posts recently that caught my eye.
One post was about an Islamic group that is proposing a sustainable mosque to be built for the 2012 Olympics in London. It would have wind turbines built into the minarets, a closed system for recycling the water used for ritual washing, a tidal power plant and solar panels. Pretty cool, huh? In the other post, Cascio posted info. taken from a Salon.com article, that you've probably already heard about, but I hadn't, that Sweden has created a commission to find ways to end the country's use of oil by 2020. Gotta love those Swedes!
Treehugger is chuck full of fun ideas, again from contributing bloggers all over the world: a lifestyle magazine for folks concerned about the environment, a Take Your (shopping) Bag for a Walk campaign and a cool looking bicycle parking unit made from recycled aluminum (pictured above). Treehugger readers can send in tips for posts.
Also, this morning, Pam McAllister was nice enough to send my a note to say she reads this blog (thanks, Pam!) and directed me to her blog, Tailwinds: Energy Sources for People Making a Difference. I haven't had a chance to read through many posts, but it seems like stuff that Have Fun * Do Good readers might want to check out.
