We’re tired from the weekend…but not too tired to get you your five hottest green links, fresh from Al Gore’s favorite invention:
- Bentley’s new luxury car, the Continental, is 85 percent recyclable, reports Environmental Leader. But since 70 percent of all Bentleys ever made are still on the road or garaged, who cares?
- How to reduce bat kill by wind turbines? Turn them off at night, says a new study reported by Green Inc. (The turbines, that is — not the bats.)
- Are overweight people contributing disproportionately to greenhouse gas emissions? A new study in the International Journal of Epidemiology says yes…but Red Green and Blue summarizes the study’s flaws.
- Can a song make aquatic invasive species go away? Bret Shaw, a University of Wisconsin-Madison, sure hopes so. (My favorite song: “One Bait, One Lake.” Hat tip: WaterWired.)
- Should you make dandelion wine from the dandelions in your urban park, or will that just poison you with pesticides and pollutants? Grist’s Ask Umbra ponders.
Donate to The Nature Conservancy and give back to nature.
