A carbon-neutral TV show? A fish that hops instead of swims (and hops rather badly, at that)? Accusations that soft toilet paper is a crime against nature? Only one web feature could container all that goodness…and we did it again in this edition of Cool Green Morning:
- I’d Rather Walk: 60-Second Science reports the discovery of a new angler fish in Indonesia that appears to hop on the ocean floor rather than swim. (See video.)
- Jack Bauer Goes Green: “24″ is aiming to become the first carbon-neutral TV show — by offsetting the carbon footprint of its car chases and explosive crashes, among other things. (Hat tip: Environmental Capital.)
- But That’s Just TV: Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives has shelved its plans to go carbon neutral, in part because it struggled to find a credible carbon offset program. Green Inc. reports the European Union is having issues offsetting the travel footprints of its officials.
- Bucky Fuller Would Be Proud: Take a look at this geodesic homeless shelter for one made entirely out of discarded materials…and designed by a 12-year-old boy.
- Does the Truth Hurt? Is U.S. consumers’ taste for softer toilet paper one of the biggest eco-crimes ever? The Guardian explores…and then Treehugger issues a slight corrective.
