Comments Off on Jeffrey Allen Price Upcycles Old Sponges Into Soft Geographical Maps

Every good artist needs a medium through which to absorb the world around them and wring out their ideas and emotions. Jeffrey Allen Price uses soft, springy sponges to create colorful large-scale geographical maps . His textured works do a surprisingly accurate job at depicting the irregular borders of the states and continents they are meant to represent. As a metaphor for the current moral and political state of the world, the worn-out sponges have a history of cleaning up hundreds of human messes.

Comments Off on U.S.-China Trade War on the Horizon? I Sure Hope Not

Jeremy Bloom of Red, Green and Blue wrote an excellent piece this week on a possible trade war between China and the U.S. (which our own Susan Kraemer also had a good story on this week), the complexity of rare-earth-metal mining and export, and the risk of a clean energy revolution relying on rare earth metals

Comments Off on Wind Industry Storms DC to Push for Renewable Energy Standard

[ Originally published at ecopolitology ] More than one hundred wind energy representatives are traveling to Washington D.C. this week for a special lobbying effort to push for a national renewable energy standard.  Industry representatives will hold over 70 meetings with lawmakers on Wednesday, March 10 in an event dubbed, “Wind Power on Capitol Hill”, to urge passage of a national renewable energy standard that will give the wind energy industry the kind of stable policy foundation for long-term industry growth. At the state level, the renewable energy standard has become the preferred policy mechanism in the U.S.

Comments Off on Global Green and What Makes an Oscar Gown Green?

Photo Courtesy of Brandon Hickman At the Global Green Pre-Oscar party last week, Suzy Amis Cameron’s eco Oscar gown was unveiled. It was lovely, but there was no mention of what made this gown more sustainable than most, other than it was colored “Na’vi blue”. This sort of vagueness is how people can easily be accused of greenwashing.

Green To Grow On – An Obvious Conclusion

Comments Off on Green To Grow On – An Obvious Conclusion

I was listening to a report recently that determined that, rather than trying to save the planet by purchasing green cleaners, organic food and other green products, consumers generally are motivated by health- theirs and their children’s.  This is, of course, a bit of a “duh’ for me, since I and most of my marketing colleagues came up with this conclusion awhile ago. But it is a boon to green brands trying to go mainstream.

Comments Off on The Looming Immigration Battle. Not That One! The More Important One

Eventually, Congress will get around to “Immigration Reform.”  The process will be all too predictable.  There will be a lot of huffing and puffing from angry old white men trying to conflate the issue with “National Security” and using “invasion” imagery and thinly veiled racism.  There will be lots of posturing about “getting control of our borders.”  Anyone who puts forward reasonable ideas will be subject to attack from the Right and Left

Comments Off on Kerry and Graham Renew Bipartisan Energy on Climate Bill

When Scott Brown’s Senate win in Massachusetts brought the forty-first vote against health care to the Republican caucus, Washington shifted its focus to other items that started high on the legislative agenda in 2009, but found their way to the back burner in the health care battle royale. A comprehensive energy reform and climate change bill climbed right to the top of the list

Copenhagen Week One: Climategate, China, and the Obama Nobel Play

Comments Off on Copenhagen Week One: Climategate, China, and the Obama Nobel Play

In this space last week, I wrote a column that I thought might draw the ire of some greens for its cynical outlook on Copenhagen. Instead, it drew a fair amount of attention from readers concerned that I had glossed over the significance of “Climategate.” Like that column, this one is not about Climategate in the broader sense, but about its impact on the goings-on this week in Denmark
