Compost Comparison

Green Earth Journey

Do you compost? Many more people are beginning to compost lately, and this includes those living in urban areas. With the resurgence of the Victory Garden, and even apartment dwellers starting potted vegetable gardens on balconies, composting just makes good sense. Many companies have jumped on the new demand and have created smaller and more efficient compost systems that can even be used indoors. I do not use an indoor system, so I did a little research.

Look for the people who are simply sitting there. Simply sitting there with a slight smile and breathing just to breathe. There’s a good chance these people aren’t always happy, because, as you know, life sometimes has a sick sense of humor.

Fuel Efficiency Flimflam And Other Bad Car Comparisons

Living Green & Saving Energy

There is a great deal of misinformation when it comes to automobile fuel efficiency. If you look at the average miles per gallon from 1975 to now, you would see an overall doubling of fuel efficiency. What is less understood is that most of these increases happened in the later part of the 1970s. From […]. fuel efficiency green transportation hybrid cars

A Comparison of Birding in Costa Rica and Eilat, Israel

10,000 Birds

As with any birding locales, there are similarities and there are differences and in this transcontinental case, the differences are obviously much more pronounced but I can’t help but think about comparisons. I have been back from Eilat, Israel for more than a week but still find myself dreaming about birding in the desert. As I scan for the Hoopoe Lark that I dipped, I wonder what else is being seen in the sparse wadi vegetation.

Libya’s Oil Reserves Pale in Comparison to Solar

Green Prophet

Libya has long relied on its crude oil resources for revenue, but the country possesses a natural resource far more abundant and hardly tapped at all: sun. Nearly 90 percent of the country is comprised of sun-drenched desert or semi desert and only 1.03 percent of the land is arable. Match this with solar irradiation that far north countries would die for, and Libya is sitting on a veritable gold mine.
