Halloween is hurtling at us like a thrown pumpkin…but there’s still time to duck and get the latest green news of the day…including how urine could hold the key to cheap auto fuel. (Remember: Practice safe gourd smashing this holiday.)
- Do you run a company that pollutes, or do you love someone who does? CleanTechnica has 10 ways polluters can benefit from the climate/energy bill’s requirements to cut CO2 emissions. (I like #5: Form a Symbiotic Relationship with Your Opposite.)
- EcoWorldly is doing a photo tour of the 10 Great Bicycle Cities of the World. Today’s stop: Berlin, where less than one-half of the residents own a car and the city just invested $3.7 in improving its bicycle infrastructure.
- So sorry to have missed this on Friday — an Ohio University researcher might have found a cheap way to renewably produce hydrogen from fuel for cars…using urine, says The Vine.
- Will cap-and-trade create lots of green jobs, as its proponents claim? No, says economist John Whitehead at Environmental Economics (who’s a proponent of cap-and-trade, BTW) — while jobs will be created in certain industries, others will be lost as a result of regulation.
- The greenest city in the United States? How about Gotham, The Big Apple, The City So Nice They Named It Twice? David Owen at Yale Environment 360 says it’s New York — ya wanna make somethin’ of it?
