Al Gore Has A 5-Step Program


green

Check out the below elements of Al Gore’s suggested plan for the Federal Government to make the U.S. electricity system carbon-free in the next 10 years. He also wrote a great Op-Ed piece in the NY Times, have a look at it here

The five elements of the plan are:

  • Incentives for construction of concentrating solar-thermal power plants in the southwest, wind farms in the Midwest, and plants in geothermal “hot spots.”
  • A $400 billion investment over 10 years to build a “national smart grid” to distribute renewable energy, which he said would quickly offset the annual $120 billion loss from power grid failures. The power grid can be outfitted so that consumers have better tools and information for conserving energy.
  • Aid to automakers to convert to the production of plug-in hybrids. Smart-grid technology that enables the cars to be charged during off-peak hours.
  • A nationwide effort to retrofit buildings, which account for 40 percent of carbon dioxide emissions, to be more energy-efficient.
  • Climate regulations to cap carbon dioxide emissions.

Gore also argued that alternative fossil fuel technologies–notably so-called clean coal, where carbon dioxide emissions are stored underground–are not yet viable options. (source)

Dr. Martens – Still Cool…?

Apparently, they are still hot in London, but I can’t remember the last time I saw someone sporting a new pair in the states.  Maybe, if they were tropical fruit loop colors then I’d recognize them and hop on the bandwagon….

One of the Hottest Pics Ever

Matthew McConaughey is a cool guy, but how can he seem so stoned all the time and still have such a hot-assed body? I mean, the munchies alone! As usual I digress, so enjoy what I think is one of the hottest pics ever.

Additionally, you can always go here and check out what is an interesting conversation about what he’s packin’, and I don’t think they’re talking about for a trip. Well, unless it’s a trip down the hot pocket aisle, if you know what I’m talkin’ about! He’s what many would consider “balls-deep worthy”.

Speaking of Pink Interviews…

pink

I guess she was doing an interview in New Zealand that went really really badly and she ended up walking off, and it might cost the interviewer her job. Read on:

A TVNZ investigation into an incident between One News’ Australian correspondent Hannah Hodson and pop sensation Pink’s management may cost the reporter her job, the journalist’s colleagues fear.

Sunday News has been told the interview, at Sydney’s swanky InterContinental Hotel on Thursday, was “so bad” Pink walked out, and that afterwards her management tried to forcefully remove the interview tape from TVNZ’s camera, sparking an ugly confrontation. Continue reading

Drew Barrymore Supports The Gays, And I Love Her For It

I was listening to a Pink interview and she once described Drew Barrymore as “one of the special ones” and I think that’s the common sentiment throughout Hollywood – and it won’t be disputed by me anytime soon. 

Here she is vowing to help fight the passing of Proposition 8.

Blood Diamonds >>> “Add To Cart”

There’s obviously some grey area involved with a newly promoted site auctioning materials picked up from police confiscation.  The site promises good deals, ‘Hot Pursuit Specials’, and potentially the opportunity to find the lamp that was stolen by that crackhead two years ago.

So far, I’ve seen pretty good deals on snowmobiles, iPods, and a VW Jetta.  Generally speaking, I’m not overly superstitious about materialistic items, but in this case I just don’t know if I could shake the stigma of a new rolex that would constantly remind me of The Wire on HBO.

Happy Shopping & Stay On The Grind!
