We’re big on waste this morning — menswear that was once a Diet Coke bottle, how Omega 3s reduce methane from cows, and how the absolutely greenest way to scoop Rover’s poop could save the newspaper business. (Weave all those into a family-appropriate limerick and post it as a comment — we’ll feature it tomorrow morning.)
- You Can Breathe Now: The methane in cow flatulence would be reduced if we fed them some fish oil, says a new study by researchers at University College Dublin. (Hat tip: Environmental Economics.)
- Green vs. Green: The new split among environmental groups is over whether to be global and industrial (e.g., addressing climate change with huge wind- or solar-power installations) or local (prioritizing local ecologies over those installations), says The Wall Street Journal.
- That Fresca Looks Good On You: Beginning in May, Sears will sell men’s suits made of a fabric spun from recycled plastic soda bottles, reports Environmental Leader.
- Just Wait a While: A decade of cooler weather doesn’t mean global warming isn’t happening, says a new paper coming out in Geophysical Research Letters — but a decade of warmer weather doesn’t mean global warming is happening, either. (Hat tip: Dot Earth.)
- Wrap It Up: What’s the greenest way to pick up after your pets? (Hint: It’ll help boost home subscriptions to newspapers.) (Hat tip: Blogfish.)
