Gov’t Study Concludes Ethanol NOT Better for the Environment than Gasoline

Remember how we have to pay to subsidize a crap ton of genetically modified corn (yes, not just a ton, but a “crap ton”), because we have to make the supposedly green biofuel ethanol? We are told it is so much better for the environment, right?

The Obama Administration and others claim it’s truly a ‘clean oil alternative’ that will help ‘combat climate change’, after all.

Well according to a new study — a study our government spent half-a-million dollars on that was just released in a peer-reviewed journal — that is simply untrue, as AP reports:

…biofuels made with corn residue release 7 percent more greenhouse gases in the early years compared with conventional gasoline.

While biofuels are better in the long run, the study says they won’t meet a standard set in a 2007 energy law to qualify as renewable fuel.

Guess they’ll just up and change the standard to fit the agenda yet again like they usually do when they don’t like reality… (Raised permissible levels of nuclear radiation in drinking water post-Fukushima, anyone?)

Reminds me of a lot of other supposedly “green” stuff we are told — through heaping amounts of green guilt propaganda or greenwashing — we should all run out and buy right away “for the environment”…those CFL light bulbs immediately come to mind.

You know the curly little bulbs that contain mercury, so if you accidentally break one, your trendy green energy-saving Earth bulb suddenly becomes a toxic, hazardous waste pile for you and the environment, which is why the EPA recommends a multi-step hazardous materials clean-up process that involves clearing all humans and pets out of the room.

One study also concluded those bulbs emit dangerous ultraviolet rays that damage human skin cells as well. Sounds fun, right?

Basically when the government says something is good for me anymore, I have to wonder if it really is or if they are just saying that because someone high up in there got paid to say that so someone else could get a big, fat kickback because people believe it.

An Important step of green revolution – Sustainable Agriculture & Food Innovation

During the period of 1960s to 1970s, in the field of agriculture, an extreme innovation is seemed to happen in the form of Green Revolution.  In between this period you will about to notice one of the extreme researches had done in want of more food to quench the thirst and hunger of the growing populace and to solve the problem of the voracious problems also. That was just the beginning, and even today we are also getting the benefits of it in huge manner. And this movement also encourages growing the superior kind of crops in vast amount, and through the path you will also notice one of the best items of the town also.

By introducing these modern methods of irrigation, the agriculture of the world seems to take a gigantic manner and it also helps to grow more food from a little land even in the repeated manner. As today the ways of the modern farming practices are emerging in rapid manner, the necessity for sustainable cultivation was broaden from financial and food sustainability to ecological and social sustainability and it is also helps us to maintain the equilibrium of the food and the takers. And now not only in the agricultural land but also in the horticulture, sugar, meat and the other grains are also rearing through the process of the Sustainable agriculture. Unlike the previous times, of the time of the Green revolution the quantity of the land is not as the same as before, so if we want the continuous supply of the foods that we must initiate the process of sustainable agriculture and the food innovation just as the country Australia, in which the process is supported by the government also.

In order to educate people in right manner in the case of the sustainable agriculture and it also encourages to running many agriculture schools which could help you in real manner. And through the various agricultural courses people can now equip their carrier also. And if you look into the country like Australia, the term Sustainable agriculture is not only a buzzing term only. To them it is actually the extreme business. In amidst the extreme climate, in the limited span of land, they increased chemical variability and all this leads to a great prosperity to the extreme business.  But this is not the enough. If we can’t prosper in the process then this effort is not completely able to fulfil all the criteria’s of it also. Maintaining the Eco balance, the city is ready to prosper in the field of it. and you can very much able to get the blessings also in the recent future.

Apple teases Samsung in new environmental print ad: ‘There are some things we want every …

are some things we want every company to copy’


As part of its recent environmental campaign, Apple has taken out some tongue-in-cheek full-page print advertising in newspapers around the world today. The ad reads ‘There are some things we want every company to copy’. The ad was first spotted by David McClelland on Twitter. (Hi-res version below:)


The ad also has been seen in Germany. The ad highlights Apple’s commitment to its green energy plans and environmental sustainability. The ad is phrased as a clear jab at Samsung, reading: ‘There’s one area where we actually encourage others to imitate us’.

This is the full transcript of the ad:

There’s one area where we actually encourage others to imitate us. Because when everyone makes the environment a priority, we all benefits. We’d be more than happy to see every data centre fuelled by 100% renewable energy sources. And we eagerly await the day when every product is made without the harmful toxins we have removed from ours.

Of course we know we can continue to do better. We’ve set some pretty ambitious goals for reducing our impact on climate change, making our products with greener materials and conserving our planet’s limited resources. So the next time we come across a great idea that can help leave the world better than we found it, we look forward to sharing.

The ad is timed alongside Green Earth Day. Apple has adorned Apple Store’s with green leaves as part of its celebrations for the event. It also released a new video ad about Apple’s environmental efforts, narrated by Tim Cook.
