It seems that the Obama Administration is providing a bit of greenie delight, courtesy of belief in the global warming doctrine. It is said to be moving to the strict pollution controls of California. This may be a move that is going to cost a lot of money. Is this really just the nail in the coffin of the US auto industry. Even Toyota of Japan is becoming number one in the world, only to idle factories and go out of business or at least into trouble. Time to retool auto plants to make high-speed trains, commuter rail and even magnetic hydrodynamic (maglev) trains.

For what kinds of things do you use garage storage? You may change your own car oil and need to save that before it's propler disposal. That is a truly green task. Many of our garage duties involve green aspects, since we are taking material, such as wood and working on it, and we have to dispose of waste. Car Guy Garage, my friends say, has plenty of great steel cabinets to keep clean and get it together.

Sometimes I feel lust for trees. Not so much now during the winter, but in the summer when you see those green trees flowing with sap. Don't you feel the urge to use a screwdriver to bore a bit of hole in a tree, not too deep of course. It doesn't have to be a maple tree to see the sap flow down, as it slowly oozes. This may be too intense for many, but there is also pulling down a few green leaves. Chew the maple leaves or other safe trees and feel the odd flavor all through your body. Know that the trees are absorbing Carbon Dioxide and taking away your Global Warming fears. How nice!

Going Green as a good Environmentalist is not easy in your business or your life as a baby boomer. You need a babyboomer coach. Jane Behr is a life coach and a motivational speaker, my friends tell me. You can go to her website, blifecoach.com and download a lot of valuable free information. Jane has a radio show and a TV show and all that, and is extremely flexible, working with people in person, online and by email. She has a very cute article called "Paint your Wall Green." Its about changing the old patterns of your life and learning new patterns so that you can change and grow. This is a product that will soon be available in stores.
What is a life coach anyway? It is a bit of a psychologist, though not really that. It is more like having a personal trainer for your soul, the way you have a personal trainer when you work out. It's about what you want to do with your green environmental life and changing. It's about getting rid of the roadblocks and finding out what you want to do in the first place.

Yes, it is possible to green the desert and make the environment better. That may not be in the orthodox canon of global warming defense theory or environmentalism, but it's true. A big project is getting support in Mexico in the state of Sonora, called the PHLINO project. It involves diverting water from rivers in the south of Mexico and bringing the water for irrigation of crops in the Sonoran desert.
The project has gained the support of the Gov. of Sonora, Eduardo Bours, who calls for the federal gov't to start the PHLINO (Northwest Hydraulic Plan) right away.
Bours is quoted: "In times of crisis, what is needed is that public spending to be freed up, that investment be made concrete. I believe this is what everyone wants to call upon the federal government to do: free up resources. The other day I insisted to a member of the government who told me there aren't any great projects: But there is the PLHINO. They don't want to hear about it, nor do they want to mention it, but it is a project which generates jobs, generates infrastructure, opens up land for cultivation," There's a lot more on the PHLINO (Link) at LaRouchePac (link) Video NAWAPA-PHLINO.

If you want to save the planet, you can be beautiful too. This 7 Cream with Manuka Honey is a very natural product, ladies, that will not increase your carbon count much. It has a special glycerine from vegetable extract made by Gaia (Mother Earth) herbs. This is definitely a natural product. It has aloe too, and homeopathic tinctures, which is very exciting.

Yes, we call her mother earth, but she has both masculine and feminine sides. This is the wonderful goddess Gaia that all good greenies and environmentalists worship. When she has a volcanic eruption from a phallus-like volcanic peak, she is ejaculating into the air, a very masculine trait. This creates cloud cover and a cooling effect from the volcanic ash, the opposite of global warming.
So how is mother earth a goddess then? The earth can be dug into and accepts our corpses as we die, to fertilize her. She takes in the seeds to create new plant growth. So, let us continue to worship our androgynous great mother.

Have you considered Dream Weddings In Cyprus? True, the carbon footprint would be astronomical, to have you and your spouse and 100 guests fly to Cyprus from the United States. Yet, it makes sense to do it because Cyprus is such a beautiful place to have a wedding, and afterwards, you can promise not to travel in an airplane for the next couple of years. That will be your atonement.
A new choice for a wedding venue is the Ethnographic Museum in Paphos. The museum has many beautiful and interesting artifacts, and you can have your wedding in a gorgeous, sun-drenched outdoor courtyard. You have the alternatives of a civil ceremony or a Catholic or Anglican ceremony.
Then there is a wonderful old Byzantine church, you can choose St. Paul's Church, Ayia Kyryaki, which is in a secluded area of Kato Paphos, on a Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. But never kiss me on a Sunday, a Sunday, because that's my day of rest.
Think how often you hear a weather report even for a couple of days and it turns out to be wrong. Often it is right too, for only 2 days. How about for 5 days? Not so often right. So how can we make a weather report for the next 100 years and predict global warming? It seems totally impossible. Here is a (link)on bad climate models that has more details on this interesting subject. Should we really shut down industrial civilization in order to believe in a 100 year weather forecast? Only if you believe in astrology and in the good tooth fairy, otherwise, I have my doubts.

Motorcycles are Great for the environment, since they use so much less gas than cars. It's time to get that green daddy and green momma on a motorcycle. And get your kuryakyn accessories too, while you're at it, so you can go green in style. The Kuryakyn hand grips are so neat, say my friends, and that way, Green Daddy can have motorcycle Momma ride with him too, what a scene. Cruisingcustomizing.com has a lot of great ideas on how to customize your bike. There's a great video on the site on how to customize your wind shield and get it down to the right size for you while maintaining a professional appearance.
There are some interesting ideas as well to get the best tires for the cold weather and for snow. As bikers well know, one of the downsides of being a green biker and saving gas, is that when the cold rain and snow come, it is a drag. Sure there will be a few days when you have to take out the old jalopy and drive to work, but many borderline days can be made with your bike, if you have good tires for the winter. I have a buddy who saves a bundle of cash by commuting to work on a motorbike, and then he still has his truck for heavy haul jobs and for the days when the weather is overwhelming.
Check out cruisingcustomizing.com also for the great community interactive forums, where you can talk to bikers all over the world. There is a cool dude pictured there from Australia, near the Murray River and on a horse. That said, of course he has a great motorbike to ride on too.

Caroline Kennedy met with Gov. Paterson and there is a real question if this woman can do anything needed. There seems still to be no reason to let this pseudo-oligarchical fop into the US Senate. At least Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is a real person not a throw away. Is she good for the environment? Is Caroline Kennedy even interested in the war in Gaza, and stopping this from becoming part of the hundred years war? Green global warming people better beware, including from the Bronx NY and Harlem NY.
I really do not share in the awe of the Kennedy family. They have had some good people, but with the Maria Kennedy Shriver and her Hollywood Hubbie, Arnie Schwartznegger, I really do think that the thrill is gone. I apologize if this ruins anyone's fantasies about Camelot.

Global warming and green boys and girls wonder, what is the sense in protecting the environment, when there is all the waste and destruction of war? Look at this little, but brutal war in Gaza. How much Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, dirt and misery is spread by this dirty little war? War is not good for children, and other small living things, including green ones. A peace in the Middle East, an agreement between Israel, Syria and Lebanon, and then over Israel and Palestine, would certainly be good for the environment.

There is a lot of hope in the green community, the friends of anti global warming, and so on, the true environmentalists, in the next generation of electric cars. This is highlighted by the promised 2010 advent of the Chevrolet Volt. In the meantime, GMAC is demanding a good slice of the next tranch of the $700-million US Treasury Bailout.
We at greenscenedebate.com beg to differ. The green cars may be needed, but from a National Production Company to be set up. GMAC is half owned by Cerebrus hedge fund, in the heart of the ripoff beast. Ezra Merkin, current chairman of GMAC was put there by Cerebrus. Merkin in turn used his hegde fund as a key conduit of funds to disgraced $50-billion Ponzi boy, Bernard Madoff. He made off with the gold.

Say you want to set up a web-site as part of your revolution against Global Warming. Let's look at web hosting options. Prices for web hosting are going down and the deals and what you get are improving, so now is the time to join the greenie revolution. Make that electric car site, with everything from the hot hybrids, to the newest zero-emission dream car. Pontificate on solar-panels, that can at least make a difference in sunny Southern California. Dream the wind power electricity dream, as only Danes can dream in the stormy North Sea. There is so much room to blog and to make websites, so much room to grow.
You can learn a lot by reading articles like What to Look for in a Website that may not be yet on your radar screen. Think about all the tools that you will need if you want to devote your website to internet marketing. For pay websites are not too expensive. They start as low as $1.95 a month, with many attractive and famous webhosting companies charging around $4.00 a month.
There are other things to think about and worry about in addition to the price of website per month. Does the web hosting company help you set up the website, or do you have to start from scratch? Ask questions about web security, before your email list is seized by spammers. Find out if your web hosting company can keep your website up, or if it keeps going down. The choice is yours, and webhostingreport.com can tell you what you need to know.
