Fluid Power is Green Energy. This video clip is an excerpt from NFPA’s “Fluid Power: A Force for Change” ½ hour TV program. The full video, viewable at www.nfpa.com, is a fascinating exploration of the fluid power industry and its positive effects on our current and future society, as well as the promise it holds for a rising generation of young engineers looking for exciting and socially-responsible careers. Fluid power—hydraulics and pneumatics—is one of our most reliable technologies, and its advancement will have transformative effects on our world and society.

Food waste is the second largest portion of garbage going into landfills in the United States, accounting for over 30 million tons each year. Food Scraps are one of the most important materials to divert from landfills as they decompose to create methane, a potent greenhouse gas (GHG) that contributes to climate change. In order to decrease food waste and mitigate global warming, East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) is pioneering an innovative method of taking food scraps from restaurants and commercial food processors and using them as a valuable commodity to produce green renewable energy through anaerobic digestion, with the remains going to compost.

Wind power is one of the fastest growing forms of alternative energy in the world. More and more, wind power mills are seen in the countryside, in large wind farms and for the most part, away from city life. But a new form of wind power is now designed to work in an urban environment. VOA producer Zulima Palacio has the story. Mill Arcega narrates.
I was so happy to see mainstream media is finally getting a clue. This news report on ABC suggests you cut back on eating meat by 20% or more to help the environment. It’s true that that will help, but even better would be to go vegan and not only save the environment but save lives. In fact one of the lives’ you save may be your own! Go vegan for the environment, the animals and your own health. It’s the right thing to do.
