Happy Monday folks and welcome to the 53rd carnival of the green. It was one year ago today that I posted the 2nd carnival of the green, and I’m amazed it’s rocked around this soon!
People must have been awfully busy last week because this carnival is a small one, but it’s great one as always. Remember, if you’re a blogger, you can sign up to host the carnival here, and send in a post for consideration ay time to carnivalofgreen -at- gmail.com.
Without further ado, let’s get started!
This week we’ve got ten posts from around the world, let’s roll down the line in the order in which they were recived.
From the UK, “Save the Ribble“, a blog dedicated to the health of the River Ribble (isn’t that just a fabulous sounding English name?), gives us the dirt on what sound’s like some badly mismanaged public funds. The tune of £300k going to suburban housing developments as opposed to long sought after public amenities in the area.
Don Bosch of the Evengelical Ecologist throws down a mighty suggestion – going green may help Republicans as well as Democrats. His findings are mixed, though I’m farily certain it helped our movie star Governor quite a bit.
Grooooovy Green has a simple mesage this week. Listen to Wangari Maathai (2004 Nobel Peace Prize winner) and plant a tree. A billion of them. “When we plants trees, we plant the seeds of peace and seeds of hope.”
Tracy from Ecostreet writes about a 2007 calendar that might be worthy of your holiday gift list – the Calendar of Climate Change 2007. Could be a scary thing to have on your wall, but is probably educational too!
Speaking of the Holidays (they come earlier every year, don’t they?) Liz from GreatGreenGoods has all your greeting card needs – from Holiday spirited e-cards, to recycled post consumer pulp cards, to hemp cards , to cards made from recycled gift wrap, to tree-free lokta paper cards, to cards that contain seeds and can grow flowers after the season, Great Green Goods has all the scoop on all the Holiday Card options.
Back to serious matters, and a subject dear to me, Commonground talks about the rise of domestic microfinance in the United States. — In a conservative industry focused on the bottom line, Patti Mason doesn’t sound like your ordinary bank president. The former airline accountant turned banker is animated while discussing the merits of
commerce as a form of economic empowerment.
