Battle For Terra at 52nd San Francisco International Film Festival - 04/24/09 11:32 AM
Although the 52nd San Francisco International Film Festival didn’t set out to program Green films, it may be no coincidence that several environment related or themed features and docs snuck their way into the diverse programming. One of those films, first time director Aristomenis Tsirbas’s lushly animated Battle for Terra spotlights the peaceful planet of Terra where these wide-eyed tadpole looking denizens live. The Terrareans share the landscape (and skyscape) with sucking plants (a la Fantastic Planet) and flying whales in a healthy, peaceful environment - until the aliens attack. Only this time, humans represent the invaders complete with a jingoistic (1 comments)

Sustainability at Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort - 04/14/09 11:02 AM
Clint Eastwood's iconic Dirty Harry character uttered “A man's got to know his limitations” but can say the same thing about the Green progress of a company? In the case of the smaller and less capitalized Lake Tahoe ski resort Sierra-at-Tahoe Resort we looked at skied, snowboarded, walked, and peeked around at what Green goings on here at this resort. Like all ski reports they should be concerned about their carbon footprint and global warming because with no snow they have no business. Sierra, unlike some of the larger resorts like Heavenly, don’t have as much capital to spend on LEED (0 comments)
Girl Scouts cookies - Courage, Confidence, Character & Corn Syrup - 04/03/09 11:28 AM
The economy may be in the toilet but ones things for sure this time of year the Girl Scouts will be out in whatever city or rural town selling their cookies. Yes, they have expanded their selection from the basic chocolate chip to such flavors as Dulce de Leche but for $4 a box the economy would have to get real bad for people not to support the Girl Scouts and buy a box or two. Here’s the thing that gets us. What then heck are these baked goods made from? These little morsels hardly come from just flour and sugar (1 comments)
