  • Eco-Cellphone? Motorola just launched what they’re calling a “carbon neutral” phone — using carbon offsets, they’ve accounted for the manufacturing and distribution activities of the phone. Bonus: it’s made from recycled water bottles.
  • The Word from Al: The Obama economic stimulus plan has a friend in Al Gore, who says it will help fight climate change. Dot Earth and Bright Green Blog report.
  • Green Light: Two weeks ago a German research group was asked to halt its study of algal blooms in nutrient-deficient ocean areas until an environmental assessment could be conducted. Now it has the go-ahead to dump 20 tons of iron sulphate into the ocean to see what happens.
