I was browsing on a green living website this morning, and I came across a banner with an advertisement that caught my eye.  It was a banner for an electric car from Chevrolet, the Volt.  http://www.chevrolet.com/electriccar/ This vehicle features an onboard 3-cylinder 1.0L Turbocharged, inter-c...

I think one of the most overlooked renewable energy options is wind power.  Did you know that you can generate enough power for your home (in a lot of places), and what's left over goes back into the power grid for credit on future use?  I'm a customer of Rocky Mountain Power, and they are great ...

My results are below... the JD.  Please comment with your results!  The site - BLOG THINGS has a lot of pretty funny stuff.  Obviously, this is silly stuff, purely for fun, but it's pretty right on for me.... And the characte...
