Two interesting climate crisis-related items in my feed reader today:
– The First Solar Powered Biofuel Station Opened in Eugene, Oregon. They’ve got five blends of biodiesel and ethanol available from a solar powered station. Someday soon, all gas stations will be like this but for now it’s a novelty.
– Terrapass, the company that has guilted me into buying carbon credits to offset my truck :), has partnered with Expedia to offer carbon credits when you buy airline tickets, so your trips are carbon neutral. This is a great convenience and I hope they strike a deal with Orbitz and the airline sites soon, since I don’t buy from Expedia. If it is as easy as clicking a checkbox while I’m buying a ticket, I’d probably go for it.
