Freecycle

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

I can’t even tell you how much I love freecycle.  You are saving the earth and getting free stuff!  Does it get any better than that?  I love that I can see all my stuff that I have so lovingly bought and picked out go to good homes!  If you haven’t joined your local freecycle network, I suggest checking it out!

A little green here, a little green there…

Okay, so I found the cutest ever facebook app today! It is all about showing people how green you are in your real life with your facebook!

You get to start out as a big bad hummer smashing flowers, but the idea is you end as a cute little eco-friendly car with all sorts of happiness!

So, I say get on over there, start reviewing eco-friendly products and show your friends that you have chosen to be all the green you can be!

Run Your Car on Water

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008

Has anyone else seen the run your car on water thing? This thing looks like a total scam and it makes me sad. People hocking ebooks for $50 or more promising that you’ll be able to run your car on water. Here’s the breakdown as I see it.

  • True – An internal combustion engine can be run on hydrogen. In fact, you can pump it straight into the carburetor unmodified until it backfires!
  • True – hydrogen can be “made” from water. We all know this. Think back to high-school chemistry.
  • False – A system exists that can convert large enough amounts of hydrogen to fuel your auto that is reliable, inexpensive, and efficient. While you CAN put together a system to do it on a very small scale (like enough to fill a ping pong ball), you can’t make it in large enough quantities to drive to work!

Hope you weren’t getting too excited. The theory is sound, but it seems like the bulk of the internet would rather exploit it for cash than try and explore its possibilities.

From a quick search on “run your car on water”. FYI – I’m not arguing against any of these site specifically. They just came up first in the search.
