I'm cleaning the air!

How to improve your indoor air quality, and depending on your location, indoor air can be just as polluted – if not more so – than outside air. The problem is the chemical nature of many building materials, to the point that “sick building syndrome” is a recognized disorder. Improving the air quality in your home is a good idea, even if you and your family do not have allergies or obvious symptoms of chemical exposure. Here are some tips for making sure the air in your home is clean.

1. Air Purifiers

NOOO Don't Touch That! Child Safety How to Keep Your Kids Safe With a Child Proof Home

Are you concerned with child safety and want to keep your kids safe with a child proof home? Is your house safe for your kids? We often think of safety hazards as sharp edges or open sockets. But, what about some common items around the house and could they become poisons in the wrong hands or mixtures?

As adults, they stand much taller than children. The world looks much larger to them than to us adults. Also, it is a bit more exciting for them, and how they love to explore. Cabinets, crevices and boxes all give fuel to their imaginations and have them seeking out mischief.

Most of us have always been taught to keep dangerous chemicals down low and not at adult eye level. One accidental spill and you could wind up being blinded for the rest of your life. But, on the other hand, to a child that cabinet under the sink could be even more dangerous. Read more…

How is Solar Energy Produced?

In this day and age of growing technology, scientists are working diligently to find ways to harness solar energy in order to power the Earth. Producing cars and products powered by solar energy will reduce the emission of harmful gasses and chemicals into the atmosphere. Our Earth is a precious commodity and we need to take care to protect it.

What is solar energy? Solar energy is radiant heat and light that is emanated from the Sun. This light helps to influence the climate on Earth and allows not only humans and animals – but also fish to live. Solar energy has been harnessed for power since the ancient times by humans through the use of different technologies.

The Earth can receive 174 petawatts of solar radiation or insolation in its upper atmosphere. Close to 30% of that is reflected back into space and the rest is absorbed by the clouds, land masses, and the oceans. The spectrum of solar light on the surface of the Earth is predominantly spread across near infrared and visible ranges and a small part in the near ultraviolet. The solar light that is absorbed is able to heat the land surface, atmosphere, and oceans.

Solar energy as well as hydroelectricity, wind, and wave power make up 99.97% of the renewable energy that is available on the Earth. The total amount of solar energy that the Earth’s atmosphere, land masses, and oceans absorbs is close to 3,850 zettajoules a year. Studies show that in 2002 this was more energy in one single hour then what the world would use in a total year.

The amount of solar energy that the Earth’s surface can capture is so large that in a single year it will be twice the amount that we can obtain from non-renewable resources of oil, coal, and natural gas. Because of this consumers themselves are seeking to purchase their own solar energy systems to help save them money and to keep the Earth safe.

Understanding what Solar Energy Is and why most people find it important will give us an insight on way that we can Harness It.

Pesticides in Food The Dirty Dozen Foods List Plus++ & Safest Food to Buy 2012

Pesticides in Food The Dirty Dozen Foods List Plus++ & Safest Food to Buy 2012

Pesticides in Food The Dirty Dozen Foods List Plus++ & Safest Food to Buy 2012

Pesticides in food, the dirty dozen foods list ++ and the safest food to buy 2012 that have the least amount of pesticides in them comes on the heels of the Environmental Working Group’s annual “Dirty Dozen” report for 2012 which was just released. The EWG has named the fruits and vegetables that rank the highest in pesticide residue. By the way, you need not get all excited about shopping at Whole Foods to escape the problem, as organic food has all kinds of pesticides as well, however they are just ‘natural’, like strychnine. As per policy of their methodology, the Environmental Working Group did not run any tests of their own, what they did do was review government tests (“ranks pesticide contamination for 45 popular fruits and vegetables based on an analysis of more than 60,700 samples taken from 2000 to 2010 by the USDA and the federal Food and Drug Administration.”) and then wrote a summary of their findings.

I would imagine that most people really aren’t to fond of the idea of having pesticides on the food they eat or in the water they drink. The most recent government pesticide tests establish the widespread presence of pesticide residues on conventionally grown fruits and vegetables and even in the tap water many of us drink from.

Fracking Responsible For Earthquakes? Rare Ohio Earthquake May Prove It!

Fracking Responsible For Earthquakes? Rare Ohio Earthquake May Prove It!

Is fracking responsible for earthquakes? The latest Ohio earthquake, a 4.0 magnitude earthquake in Ohio on New Year’s Eve did not occur naturally according to an expert hired by the state, and also stated that it may have been caused by high-pressure liquid injection related to oil and gas exploration and production by the process of fracking, the expert stated on Tuesday.

Ohio’s Department of Natural Resources on Sunday suspended operations at five deep well sites in Youngstown, Ohio, where the injection of water was taking place, while they evaluate seismological data from a rare quake in the area. The wells are each roughly 9,000 feet deep, or almost 2 miles, and are used to dispose of the waste water from oil and gas wells. The process is directly related to fracking, which is the controversial injection of chemical-laced water and sand into shale rocks to release the oil and gas contained in them. Critics of the fracking process say that the high pressure injection of the liquid causes seismic activity. Read more…

Ethanol Subsidies May End As Senate Votes Today To End Tax Credits

Ethanol Subsidies may be history as Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., is forcing a vote on a measure Tuesday that would repeal the credits. Coburn says they are wasteful subsidies for an industry that no longer needs them. With lawmakers desperately working to shave federal budget deficits, the Senate is debating a measure to eliminate ethanol tax credits that pay the oil industry $5 billion a year. The biggest defenders of the ethanol subsidies, however, include farm belt conservatives leading the charge for less government.

“The days of placing spending programs in the tax code and giving them holy status are over,” Coburn said. “This is a bad economic policy, bad energy policy and bad environmental policy.”

The measure to end ethanol subsidies is supported by conservative groups such as the Club for Growth and environmental groups such as the Sierra Club. Read more…

Capitalism: A Love Story Reviews

Capitalism: A Love Story

In presenting a “fireball of a movie that might change your life” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), Moore “skewers both major political parties” (Claudia Puig, USA Today) for selling out the millions of people devastated by loss of homes and jobs to the interests of fat cat capitalists. Moore has “dug up some astonishing dirt” (Brian D. Johnson, Macleans), stories told in the faces of the foreclosed and evicted, in the food stamps received by hungry airline pilots, and in the courage of fired factory workers who refuse to go quietly. But more than a cry of despair, Moore’s film raises the possibility of hope. Capitalism: A Love Story is “The most American of films since the populist cinema of Frank Capra (It’s a Wonderful Life)” (Dan Siegel, Huffington Post ), “a movie that manages shrewdly, even brilliantly, to capitalize on the populist anger that has been sweeping the nation” (Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal ). Capitalism: A Love Story is loaded with over 90 minutes of hilarious extended and deleted scenes, as well as exciting and informative featurettes profiling Americans and American businesses!

Vegetarian Fourth of July Party Ideas, and although the grill has ribs on it, grilled vegetables are a great addition to any party!

Vegetarian Fourth of July Party Ideas, for the great American Fourth of July picnic, with its traditional foods like grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, and fried chicken, is something vegetarians can enjoy participating in, too. Here are some ideas for making your Fourth of July very vegetarian.

The Grill

The outdoor grill is actually very conducive to preparing vegetarian fare. There is quite an array of pre-prepared, frozen burgers made from vegetable protein available in grocery stores. There are also hot dogs made from soy protein. Perhaps even more satisfying is making your own veggie burger patties and grilling them outside. There are many recipes online and in vegetarian (and conventional) cookbooks. Home-made black bean burgers are especially good on the grill. Read more…
