space Ain’t Black. It’s Green.
Greener is better: we’re taking Minnesota’s Energy Challenge.
We’re doing more to reduce our energy use and CO2 emissions, starting with getting more serious about recycling (and using fewer plastic bottles in the first place). And we’re going to keep ramping up our green initiatives this summer.
The MEC site is giving us great ideas on how to save energy, from driving slower to using energy-efficient lighting. You pick out the ones you can do, and they calculate how much energy you’’ll save, adding it to the state’s total.
But there are other good green sites that are also helping us. We especially like Yahoo’s green site. Check that out too.
(By the way, most of those photos on the MEC site aren’t of Minnesota. It might get cold here, but we don’t have penguins. Yet.)
