This weekend I was at an ice hockey complex in New Jersey that obtains 28% of its power from solar panels strategically placed in the parking lot of the complex. Whenever the facility is not using the power it generates from its solar panels, it sells it off at a discounted rate to the local town. Check it out here: Mennen Ice Complex.
Question: How long will it take long Island to catch on, (up)?
I say it happens soon, what are your thoughts?

During the recession, political and business leaders have held out the promise that American advances, particularly in green technology, might stem the decades-long decline in U.S. manufacturing jobs. But as the lighting industry shows, even when the government pushes companies toward environmental innovations and Americans come up with them, the manufacture of the next generation technology can still end up overseas.
But the real story is, as usual, more complicated. First of all, the U.S. is not the only country to move beyond wasteful incandescent lightbulbs, which burn out ten times faster than fluorescent bulbs. The European Union, Australia, Canada, Russia, Brazil, and Argentina are among the other countries that have passed regulations to phase out these old-school bulbs. So it isn’t a question of the U.S. driving these manufacturers overseas; instead, we are talking about a global shift to newer, more efficient technology...read on

Is this really a cause for concern? Or is it just another "fear factor" thrown out there by the government?

China's energy use has more than doubled over the last decade to overtake the United States as the word's biggest user, according to preliminary data from the International Energy Agency. As the data from the IEA shows, China has gone from using 1,107 million tons of oil equivalent (Mtoe) in 2000, to 2,131 Mtoe in 2008 and is estimated to have consumed 2,265 Mtoe in 2009.

We did have "pollution patrol" but this takes it to a whole other level!!!
There's nothing like a week or two at sleep-away camp to get your kids off the couch, away from the Wi-Fi, and detached from their cell phones in favor of hiking, swimming, and exploring the great outdoors. These camps focus on getting kids in touch with Mother Nature -- from working in gardens that provide the camps with food to taking daily walks to look for different plants and animals -- so that they come back more in touch with their environmental side than ever. And though it may be too late to book a trip for this year, it's never too early to start planning for 2011... http://www.treehugger.com/files/2010/07/7-green-summer-camps-sending-kids-and-future-environmentalists-into-the-great-outdoors.php?campaign=th_rss&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+treehuggersite+%28Treehugger%29
Would you send your kids to one of these camps???

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission said Friday it had approved the exchange’s application Thursday. The announcement of its approval comes just one day after U.S. Senate Democrats decided to table a climate-change bill. That bill would have helped spur a much larger derivatives market to help companies offset their carbon emissions.............full story: www.marketwatch.com/story/cftc-approves-green-exchange-2010-07-24
Does having a green exchange make sense even though the climate-change bill didn't pass???
I think so. Speculation will add liquidity to the market.

Obama had hoped to add a climate bill to the two biggest legislative successes of his presidency, a comprehensive health care bill and a broad reform of the U.S. banking and financial sector.

This will undoubtedly have a dramatic effect on America's environmental markets. Now is the time for investors to focus their efforts on other regions of the world. Specifically areas that recognize a mandate for climate change based on their laws and policies. At least until the next U.S. election.
The question is: which region globally is best for investors?

The debate, as ever, is centred on the seemingly polarised conflict between the needs for a clean source of energy and the massive social and environmental damage that dams can cause. But the short history of the Salto Caxias dam in Brazil suggests that this need not always be the case. Although construction work on the dam in the state of Parana was finished three years ago, only now has the entire project come online. It now generates 6% of all electricity used in the country...courtesy BBC
We have to consider and develop alternative clean sources of energy otherwise our environment will be depleted. Don't you agree???
