It's Friday again!
I asked some of my pals around the green blogosphere if they had any great links to share with you all. Here's some good stories to help you take out the week.
"With Woody Harrelson recently shutting down his long-running green website, we thought we might profile 10 other celebrity-fueled eco-sites that are still humming right along."
"Tigers are vanishing and we're at fault, but though the situation is dire there's no reason we can't also celebrate how gorgeous, majestic, and even cute they are — check out these grrrrreat photos."
"It's easy to love butterflies, but by attracting the "tigers and barracudas of the insect world" to your garden, you're reducing the pests that eat your plants and increasing biodiversity! It's a win — win."
"For once, Hollywood is destroying more than far-off, blue Alien planets: preservationists rally to save the land around the Hollywood sign from luxury developments."
"Hyperlocavore is a cool community that hooks up people who want to grow their own food — but don't have the room —with a yard-sharing friend."
From The Fun Times Guide to Living Green:
"These snarky cartoons add some much-needed humor to the not-so-funny environmental and humanitarian evils being perpetrated by Monsanto."
"Y'Know the flying dragons in Avatar? Here's a tiny real-life version photographed in Indonesia".
"With so much misinformation being passed around about climate change science, it's important to take a step back and remember that even if all the science was in fact flawed (it's not, far from it) we would still need to make drastic changes to our energy, transportation and food systems in order to ensure a prosperous & sustainable future. This post helps remind us of that."
From Telegraph (UK):
"This is truly scary news — great white sharks could be even more endangered than the already scarce tiger."
Have a great weekend!
