Rising Phoenix Helps Ashland Become First City in Southern Oregon to Use Homegrown Fuel

Ashland Becomes First City in Southern Oregon to Use Homegrown Fuel



By switching to B5 biodiesel in June, the City of Ashland became Southern Oregon’s largest municipal fleet running on domestic biodiesel blends. By replacing 5% of their 38,000-gallon annual diesel usage with a domestic biodegradable fuel, they save 30,000 pounds of greenhouse gasses from Rogue Valley skies. In a year, that’s like taking 3 of their cars off the road, or importing 45 less barrels of foreign oil.… Continue

into frolicking flakes of friendly fantasies

and filled with mind melting mysteries

which will dissolve… Continue

Maybe they're putting us on...



I was a County Commissioner once. I let with a pretty high opinion of local government, or at least its potential to serve people the way they want to be served. So I wince every time I hear "Government" slammed as some kind of lumbering monster, with no sense that the process is very different, with very different accessibility for citizens who care, at the national,… Continue

Australia fires impacted 3 BILLION animals in "one of the worst wildlife disasters in modern history" | The Mind Unleashed

Scientists have revealed that nearly three billion animals were killed or displaced in Australia’s unprecedented wave of bushfires in 2019 and 2020, which experts have dubbed “one of the worst wildlife disasters in modern history.” According to the report based on research from several universities and commissioned by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), some 143 million mammals, 180 million birds, 51 million frogs, and a staggering 2.46 billion reptiles were impacted by the crisis.

Solar energy breakthrough creates electricity from invisible light | The Independent

Two major breakthroughs in solar cell technology could vastly improve the way energy is harvested from the sun. The two studies, published in Nature Energy and Nature Photonics, will transform the efficiency and significantly reduce the cost of producing solar cells, scientists say. The first breakthrough involves “upconverting” low energy, non-visible light into high energy light in order to generate more electricity from the same amount of sunlight. Researchers at RMIT University and UNSW University in Australia and the University of Kentucky in the US discovered that oxygen could be used to transfer low energy light into molecules that can be converted into electricity.
