Comments Off on Lego Invests $500 Million in German Offshore Wind Farm

It’s no surprise we are big LEGO fans here at Inhabitat – the iconic building blocks can be used to create everything from cameras and furniture to apartments and massive cathedrals . Now the toy maker is making headlines again by investing $500 million into green energy. Denmark-based LEGO will buy almost a third of a brand new German offshore wind power project planned by DONG Energy company . The investment will account for 32% of the 277 megawatt Borkum Riffgund wind farm 35 miles off the Northwest coast of Germany. This pricey move will not only help power the German grid, but will hopefully supply nearly all of LEGO’s energy needs with wind power.

Comments Off on Congressman Allen West Complains About Paying $70 to Fill the Tank of His Hummer

In a country where the unemployment rate lingers at a lofty 8.3% after the worst economic disaster since the 1930s, it probably isn’t a good idea to whine about how much it costs to fill up the tank of your luxury car. Congressman Allen West (R-FL) recently decided to use his Hummer H3 to illustrate his latest talking point about President Obama and gas prices. West posted a statement on Facebook yesterday stating, “last night it took 70 dollars to fill the tank of my 2008 H3 Hummer, what is it costing you? What does it cost the President to fill his gas tank?” Read the rest of Congressman Allen West Complains About Paying $70 to Fill the Tank of His Hummer Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: allen west , congressman allen west , gas prices , high gas prices , hummer , hummer h3 , politicizing gas prices , politics , politics of gas prices , republican allen west
