An iceberg floats off Greenland

Scientists sounded alarms Tuesday with a pair of studies challenging the idea that climate change is occurring gradually over the century and that its worst effects can be avoided by keeping emissions below a critical threshold.

Climate history has been commonly recorded by tree rings, ocean sediment and ice cores.  Climate changes to the environment can be punctuated by big, sudden changes, including ocean circulation shifts and mass extinctions.

This is a local, domestic and international effort. Hopefully, China and India will pursue more laws and end up creating more jobs to reduce pollution and carbon footprint.

NRDC’s First Annual Energy and Environment Report, America’s (Amazingly) Good Energy NewsNRDC’s First Annual Energy and Environment Report, America’s (Amazingly) Good Energy News, is the product of an exhaustive analysis of extensive new government data that shows total U.S. energy use in 2012 was below the 1999 level even though the economy grew by more than 25 percent (adjusted for inflation) during that period.  As a result of national energy efficiency measures, Factories and businesses are producing substantially more products and value with less energy, the amount of gasoline per mile driven is down, and the cost of all energy services (from lighting to refrigeration) also has decreased.

The report notes that the amount of climate-warming carbon dioxide pollution also is down, putting the nation on track to meet President Obama’s emissions reduction target of 17 percent over the next seven years, though much more must be done  to avoid the worst effects of climate change.

Here is a snapshot of the report’s major findings:

Green Project Marketing announces it will represent SaveSorb with nationwide sales of its industry-leading, all-natural oil and chemical absorbent.

SaveSorbis a highly absorbent, cost effective tool for all types of oil based cleanups.SaveSorb is both less expensive and dramatically more effective than any clay, cellulose or silica based absorbent on the market today. The key ingredient in SaveSorb is formulated peat that has been dried, blended, sifted and ph balanced to produce the best oil absorbent available.

SaveSorb doesn’t just pick up oil like a paper towel or sponge, but rather truly absorbs and encapsulates oil molecules. This full absorption means that SaveSorb does not leach absorbed product when under pressure or exposed to water.

It’s this non-leaching characteristic that has allowed SaveSorb to pass U.S. Federal and CA State non-hazardous landfill requirements for a multitude of products (e.g. motor oil, hydraulic oil, diesel, gasoline).

In addition, SaveSorb is hydrophobic. It floats on water and can be used to take oil or fuel off of the surface of water or can be used as a water filter.

SaveSorb mats and booms can be used in environments where rain and runoff can cause oil cleanup and removal to be near impossible with other products.

SaveSorb is offered in loose form, pads, mats, pillows, berms and socks.  

SaveSorb Medium Resealable Bags        Save-Sorb large absorbing sox or socks.         SaveSorb absorbent pillow

To purchase SaveSorb or to learn more, please contact Michael Stevens at (310) 890-9182 PST or mstevens[at]greenprojectmarketing[dot]com.

In a market where consumers--both residential and commercial--are giving recognition to their carbon footprint and taking control of their consumption, energy suppliers, technology companies, and even the government is getting involved--making consumption data more accessible, creating initiatives that make these partnerships more feasible, and creating systems and technology to simplify and gauge behaviors and performance.

As a result, a slew of new technologies are being released into the market, allowing consumers real access to their consumption patterns, helping to identify deficiencies in operations and even suggesting upgrades where deficiencies may be occurring. Encouraging enough, these applications don't have to be a costly investment. In fact, some are quite affordable--or even better--free. Here are three applications that are trending in the energy management market that any organization can afford.
