Under Green Thumbs we explore not only Organic Gardening but also creating truly sustainable living environments in Permaculture. Under Food For Thought we examine the reliable cialis online issues surrounding what we eat. We look at how we grow our food under Sustainable Agriculture, the abundance of edible wild foods in Wild Crafting, How to preserve our food for later consumption in Putting It Up. The health advantages of a fresh Whole Food Diet and the environmental advantages of a local diet. We also look at all the systems that contribute to creating and maintaining total and Natural Health. We examine Eco Energy and Eco Transport solutions and under Urban Solutions we explore the greening of our towns and cities.

In Waste Not we help you reduce, reuse, repair, recycle and use rethink our way to a sustainable future. In Green Gear we let you know about new and innovative green products that can make our life healthier and more sustainable. This section can also help you expand your eco awareness through Eco Education and Eco Tourism . And after we talk about all the great things we can do, we show you How To Do It!

An Energy Newbie Learns About The Basics of Energy - Once I understood the signifigance, magnitude and urgency of our climate crisis I knew I had to do something in my life to reduce my energy consumption. But I also had to admit to myself that I didn't know anything about the energy I use!  When we are new to energy conservation it pays to understand the basics. What is "energy"? Where does it come from? And how do we pay for it? So I decided to bone up on where energy in our homes come from.

Green Power is electricity that is generated from resources such as solar, wind, geothermal, biomass, and low-impact hydro facilities. Conventional electricity generation, based on the canadian healthcare pharmacy combustion of fossil fuels, is the nation's single largest industrial source of air pollution. 

The increasing availability of green power enables electricity customers to accelerate installation of renewable energy technologies. As more green power sources are developed - displacing conventional generation - the overall environmental impacts associated with electricity generation will be significantly reduced. The more we shift to green power, the more we yeild positive results.

Bioproducts - Whatever products we can make from fossil fuels, we can make using biomass. These bioproducts, or biobased products, are not only made from renewable sources, they also often require less energy to produce than petroleum-based products.

Researchers have discovered that the process for making biofuels - releasing the sugars that make up starch and cellulose in plants - also can be used to make antifreeze, plastics, glues, artificial sweeteners, and gel for toothpaste.

Biopower, or biomass power, is the use of biomass to generate electricity. There are six major types of biopower systems: direct-fired, cofiring, gasification, anaerobic digestion, pyrolysis, and small, modular.

Most of the biopower plants in the world use direct-fired systems. They burn bioenergy feedstocks directly to produce steam. This steam is usually captured by a turbine, and a generator then converts it into electricity. In some industries, the steam from the power plant is also used for manufacturing processes or to heat buildings. These are known as combined heat and power facilities. For instance, wood waste is often used to produce both electricity and issues how to get viagra steam at paper mills.

Biofuels - Unlike other renewable energy sources, biomass can be converted directly into liquid fuels - biofuels - for our transportation needs (cars, trucks, buses, airplanes, and trains). The two most common types of biofuels are ethanol and biodiesel.

Ethanol is an alcohol, the same found in beer and wine. It is made by fermenting any biomass high in carbohydrates (starches, sugars, or celluloses) through a process similar to brewing beer. Ethanol is mostly used as a fuel additive to cut down a vehicle's carbon monoxide and other smog-causing emissions. But flexible-fuel vehicles, which run on mixtures of gasoline and up to 85% ethanol, are now available.
