Saturday Green Links – 12/10
Okay, so I don’t have a Christmas list, but Energy Circle and Grist have done it for me.
- Energy Circle’s 2011 Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts of Efficiency – Energy Circle. I love that spray foam and caulk are at the top of this list.
- A gift guide to bike stuff that people actually want - Grist. I vote for Smart Wool socks.
- Hubway to branch out next spring – Boston Globe. 20 stations in Cambridge starting in March!
- Winter Farmers’ Markets – Boston Globe. The winter farmers market at the Pru is definitely not getting the love it deserves right now.
- Organic Can Feed the World – The Atlantic. “A 2010 United Nations study (PDF) concluded that organic and other sustainable farming methods that come under the umbrella of what the study’s authors called ‘agroecology’ would be necessary to feed the future world.”
- Carbon Emissions Show Biggest Jump Ever Recorded – New York Times. “The increase, a half-billion extra tons of carbon pumped into the air, was almost certainly the largest absolute jump in any year since the Industrial Revolution.”
- What’s the #1 Air-Pollution Source in Montreal During Winter? Old Wood Stoves and Fireplaces – Treehugger. Old wood stoves are not only inefficient, but release tons of particulate matter into the air.
- Sustainability: 4 Principles for Behavior Change – Practically Green. I love these! Berklee’s Counseling and Advising Center did an anti–drugs and alcohol social norms campaign that was just great.
That’s all for now. As always, if you see anything interesting this week, send it my way.
