I read Partnering with Nature: The Wild Path to Reconnecting with the Earth, a which won the top prize for Social Change in the “Best Books 2010” competition and the book highlights a shift in the way we work with nature and the environment. From solar energy to harnessing the natural cleaning powers of nature used in a “Living Machine”, that transforms waste water to potable water using plants sunlight, the book explores some of the most promising bio-industries of our time...it also highlights the rising incidence of eco-entrepreneurs and bio-technologies that can transform the way that we live and work.
"Partnering” also makes the link between human health and the environment - citing a recent study which found that Americans spend less than one hour a week outside!!! and asserts that this is leading to all kinds of physical, emotional and spiritual ailments…..
I got a copy of the book at Amazon.com (http://tinyurl.com/yh4pkam) and find the author's ideas to be quite revolutionary... Catriona MacGregor is seen as a leader in a rising Eco-consciousness movement… While I do not agree with everything – the book has a powerful message that illuminates the fact that our connection to nature is a vital part of our existence.
'Greening-up' for the coming climate wars.
New Army Ammo Puts Mean in ‘Green’
May 05, 2011
ABERDEEN, Md. --- Tell a Soldier he's loading "environmentally friendly" ammo into his M4 mag and he might be skeptical about whether it's as effective as its lead counterpart.
But Army officials here say the new M855A1 Enhanced Performance Round -- with its steel core instead of a toxic lead slug -- is far more effective than the current round, doubling the effective range and for the first time giving M4-wielding Joes the ability to penetrate barriers once reserved for higher-caliber rounds.
Jolly good! Now the militant minded can join the ranks of the feel goods purchasing recyclable rubbish!!
Don't forget recycling toxic uranium.
Putting it into the bullets.
And blasting it all over!!!!!!!!
(also a good way to get rid of one's toxic waste).
How does that relate to the 'non polluting technologies' in the discussion subject?
There is no DU in the M855A1 Enhanced Performance Round cited, as you've implied. If you follow the link and read the article you should be able to figure out that it deals with removing lead from bullets.
I wasn't referring to DU munitions as being 'green' what point are you trying to make?
I don't know of anyone claiming that recycling depleted uranium into munitions is 'green' or non-polluting.
