There's a lot of great content flying around MNN. Here are a few of my favorites from this week.
• Robin Shreeves writes about a few sites that make it easy to find locally made beer and wine.
• Biomicry is the new hawtness in renewable energy generation. It makes a lot of sense, nature is a very efficient designer.
• It sounds like a Dr. Seuss book- power your car with watermelons.
• Google is applying their famously awesome engineering focus to renewable energy.
• Nuclear fusion is awesome, super green, and getting closer to industrial reality. Karl Burkart writes about a newly inaugurated fusion test facility in California.
• Are you connected to coal from mountaintop removal mining? I am here in Maine, sadly.
• We had the same amount of usable railroads in 1882 as we have today. What was going on in 1881, 128 years ago?
• Shipbreaking is a nasty, dirty process that pollutes the environment and the shipbreaking workers health. There's a treaty on shipbreaking that a lot of environmental activists are upset about because it won't do anything to prevent beaching of ships.
• Make you own solar power generator for less than $300.
• Glow in the dark green monkeys. It doesn't get cooler than that.
Do you have a few minutes to spare to give your feedback on MNN? We're running a survey and would love to hear what you think about the site and how we're doing. The survey is quick and easy. Thanks.
Have a great weekend, see you back on Monday.
