17 billion paper rolls are thrown away every year, an amount that can fill the Empire State Building twice over. This tubeless toilet roll will save enormous energy and waste! The person who came up with this idea is a GENIUS! (x)

Blackfriars railway bridge, which crosses the River Thames, has been turned into London’s longest solar array and the world’s largest energy-harvesting bridge. Built in 1886, the bridge has been covered with a roof containing 4,400 photovoltaic panels and is expected to produce 900,000 kWh of electricity annually - enough to power half the train station.Read more: http://bit.ly/MVZRM6 via Network R

Greenpeace is working towards creating a green and peaceful world for the children of today and tomorrow, so we love receiving letters from kids who are passionate about the work we do.

Recently, we received some beautiful illustrations from 8-year-old Samuel Kelso, advocating for saving trees and a switch from fossil fuels to renewable energy. With the pictures came an impassioned letter from Samuel about the effects of deforestation and global warming.

We loved it so much, we thought we’d share it with all our supporters! Here’s what Samuel sent us:

No trees. No future.

img-825152301-0001Solar and wind – future. Coal and oil is a no-no no!

I would love it if you could put my pictures on your blog or website! Also we really appreciate your goals. Now my point on “No trees no future” is that if we destroy about half of the Amazon rainforest we would also destroy the habitat of 45% of all known animal species! And it’s not just that! That also means we would have removed most of the trees. Making the world much more vulnerable to global warming. Guess what? Thermohaline circulation shutdown! Side effect include. Desert oceans, Coastal wastelands, Rising Sea levels, Poison air and reduced ozone layer. And where well on the way to this happening. Also we can stop this now.

Kind Regards.

Samuel Kelso.

PS:  I have ideas for a heat power plant which uses the heat from the Earth’s core to power a turbine which conducts electricity! The same can be done with the energy produced as the Earth’s crust moves.

PPS: I really like your organisation.

PPPS: I have an idea for a Frozen advertisement to get young girls to join the movement “Save the Arctic”.

Consumers consider several factors when deciding which products to buy. In recent years, ‘eco-friendly’ has been added to the list of things consumers look for in a product. Companies then have to innovate their products or at least the way their goods are sold to address this new demand….

Let’s spare a minute and think how we can be a little more environmental today. I’m not guilt-tripping you, I’m just saying that this is what it is like, let’s be a little more concerned.

why celsius/centigrade is better than fahrenehenheit

  • easier to spell
  • all water below 0 is ice. easy and logical
  • all water above 100 is steam. easy and logical
  • if it’s 1 degree outside one day and 10 degrees the next you can literally say it’s 10x warmer and you aren’t even…

I vote Kelvin

Search engine donates 100% of profits to users’ chosen charities
While it doesn’t look like it’s power is going wane any time soon, there are internet users who disagree with Google’s corporate tax setup or privacy policies and would happily use a different search engine. We’ve already seen charitable efforts such asEcosia — which donates 80 percent of its income to reforestation in Brazil — but now Sleio is a search engine that enables users to choose which charitable causes the company sends donations too.
