Nothing in this post about saving money or cutting down your carbon footprint. Nope. This here post is just a good ol’ helping of schadenfreude, as we take a look at some of the biggest man-made disasters in history.

Not only did these colossal mistakes hurt our planet, but they were expensive as heck to clean up! All the more reason to be more careful out there.

Be sure to check out “The Weirdest Man-made Disasters” (about halfway down)… some truly triste ways people have messed up parts of the Earth.

You might want to sit down before you read this news. Go on, I’ll wait.

Although my hopes were high, someone else’s video won the Raleigh Nissan LEAF event. As full of sorrow as I am, I’ll blink back the tears just enough to put up a link to the winning video.



Winner’s Video

And did I mention it’s fun? Ohmahgod.

Dang. My hat is reluctantly off to him for winning. He must’ve done a good job getting out the vote for that video.

For old times’ sake, here’s my video entry, one last time:



Joe’s Video

Such poise. Such je nais sais quois. As for how that video didn’t win, I shall never know.

Although the final vote may say otherwise, I think we can all count this as an emotional win for my video. Better luck next time.

Michael Jackson Dead – A True Eco Hero?

No, not really an eco hero. He lived extravagantly, in huge mansions (with huge energy bills), and logged many thousands of miles by plane, one of the most pollutingest ways to travel. But today we remember him for the good, and not for the bad.

The man, the myth, the legend Michael Jackson has died. Although he did not really walk the “green” walk, he did talk the green talk, with such unforgettable songs such as the timeless “Heal the World” and “Earth Song.”

So now, a moment of silence please, whilst we listen to the haunting melodies of “Earth Song”, in remembrance of Michael Jackson, the former King of Pop.
