You give us one minute, we give you five hot green links — from the death of hydrogen cars to a swimming camera-tripping jaguar. That’s the deal every Cool Green Morning. Don’t disappoint us…
- The dream of a hydrogen-powered car? Forget about it, says EcoGeek’s Hank Green — especially after the Obama administration just slashed research money for hydrogen fuel cells. He argues that the dream was really a foolish fantasy that wasted billions of dollars.
- China is now “the world’s leading builder of more efficient, less polluting coal power plants,” reports The New York Times — beating the United States to the “clean coal” punch.
- How do you get rid of e-waste (geek speak for old electronic gadgets)? Treehugger runs down the ways.
- The chemicals in just one cigarette butt can make a liter of water fatal for fish, says a new study from San Diego State University. (Hat tip to Blogfish, which adds that cigarette butts are the number one litter item found on beaches by the Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup.)
