The physics behind renewable propulsion systems of the future Grady Winston’s guest post may cause a few to raise their eyebrows, wondering about the reason for speculating on such futuristic concepts as zero-point energy, or energy that comes free to all because it just happens to be there for the taking.

The ground is now covered by impervious streets and buildings, which do not allow rainwater to leech into the aquifer below. In some parts of the country the natural aquifers have been irreparably damaged due to over use without replenishment. The use of water is becoming more and more restricted every day. The recycling of water as part of the green movement is gaining popularity in the United States.
The cost of energy just seems to keep on rising, making it harder and harder to make ends meet. Not only does it cost us in dollar terms, but most of us understand that using energy negatively affects the environment, too. All is not lost, though; there are many ways to help ease the energy…
If you visited our site yesterday, you will have read Part I of our guide to getting a clean sparkly kitchen while avoiding buying more unnecessary nasty chemicals.

As much as we want to avoid the subject, the reality of asbestos still exists for many people in the world. This guest post by Brenda Panin provides some useful information on the matter.
In fact, agricultural interests have been the largest offenders in the Amazon with their desire for more land to raise cattle and grow soybeans and other commodity crops for internal use and the burgeoning export markets.
Retrofitting a commercial warehouse has a number of benefits, including reducing the facility’s carbon footprint, increasing the property’s value and lowering the facility’s energy bills. But how can facilities “go green” with minimal investment?
I liked what I read in this guest post from Sarah Parker, challenging the audacious proposition from commentator Lou Dobbs that green policies have far less to do with liberal or conservative leanings, and far more to do with the planet we leave for our children to inherit.
The following guest post from Kevin Hagan focuses on steps that can be taken in making a green move. He should know, as residential and commercial moving is his business. Remember what you did with all those boxes the last time you moved? Thanks for the tips, Kevin.
