Al Gore’s Green Tips
August 27, 2007
Following up on a recent blog post on my other blog regarding green technology, here are the top five ways you can become green from none other than Al Gore.
1) Florescent light bulbs: These bulbs are getting better and better. Many people complained about the first generation of these bulbs as they had poor lighting characteristics. Nowadays you will get better looking lights which save money and last longer than incandescents.
2) Outdoor Solar Lighting: Boy these things really stink but still they are better than nothing and will save money and reduce carbon emissions. My experience with these lights is in New England. I imagine the lights are much more effective in Vegas or Arizona where the sun is much stronger.
3) Programmable thermostats: These devices are a great way to save some money and also reduce CO2 emissions. I have nothing bad to say about these devices. The one missing link in the programmable thermostat department is making them wireless ready so you can program them from a web browser. I am looking forward to the day when these devices are cheap and can be turned on and off from IE or Firefox.
I am not going to give the rest of the ideas away. If you want more information please check Oprah.com which lives on CNN.com.
Oh, I almost forgot. Don’t forget to be at the Green Technology Worldconference which will be held concurrently with ITEXPO in LA October 11-12, 2007.
