We scour the Internets (all of them) to find the five most interesting green stories of the day. Every morning. An absolutely free service. You’re welcome!
- Google is conserving energy at its headquarters campus by using goats to trim its lawns for the same cost as mowing the grass. (No word on the methane output of said goats.)
- A miracle biofuel plant (in this case, the Jatropha tree) isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, reports Yale Environment 360. Haven’t we heard this story before?
- What could Al Gore, James Inhofe and the National Review agree on? The blight of black carbon and its role in climate change, reports Environmental Capital. (Black carbon is otherwise known as soot.)
- A 340-person Alaskan village wants to move to higher ground to escape flooding from climate change…if they can find the $130 million to finance the move. (Hat tip: Blogfish.)
- Did you know it’s National Drinking Water Week? Neither did we…nor did we know we needed such a week…but WaterWired gives all of us a number of ways to celebrate and educate.
