Give us 30 seconds and we give you five great green links: That’s Cool Green Morning in a nutshell, every weekday morning. See below for a fence made of beehives and much, much more…

  1. Whatever happened to wave power? Environmental Capital reviews why harvesting wave energy is behind other renewables…and why it probably won’t catch up.
  2. Guess which topic drew a standing room only crowd yesterday at a House committee hearing? Permit allocations in the Waxman-Markey bill! The Vine reports on the debate…and why the labeling of those allowances as “give-aways” is misleading.
  3. Why are northern spotted owl populations still declining in the Pacific Northwest after a ban on old-growth logging there? Conservation Genetics says its due to a limited gene pool for the remaining birds.
  4. Amazing but true: Afghanistan has found time to declare 33 species there protected, reports Dot Earth.
  5. Amazing but true II: A fence made of beehives is being used in Kenya to stop a bull elephant from raiding crops there, reports Short Sharp Science.
