As I drove into the Metroplex today and noticed again how polluted the air was, I wondered where the city ranked in terms of air pollution. Sadly (or thankfully- depending on your view) DFW ranks 7th in terms of Ozone pollution, and doesn’t even make the top 10 list in the other EPA categories (stats… Read More

This was the worst day ever on Wall street. This isn’t a blog about the economy or finances, but something this huge will affect other sectors of life. I’m interested to see if gas prices become crazy volatile again as traders sink money into commodities. It’s pretty much guaranteed that a financial crunch stifles investment… Read More

I found out (here) that there is a movement to create “green” jobs here in the ‘ol US of A. The only problem for me is that I don’t really understand what that means. I found out that there is even a designation of “green collar worker”. The wiki article on it says: A green-collar… Read More

I recently read In the Beginning God: Modern Science and the Christian Doctrine of Creation by John Weaver. The title pretty much explains the thrust of the book. He presents a sort of synthesis of scientific ideas of origins and the Christian idea of origins. When speaking of the Christian tradition, he says, “The relation… Read More

Two things are on my radar today that merit mentioning here. The first is that Tesla (electric car manufacturer) has agreed to a deal to manufacture a new sedan in California (click here). The new vehicle will seat 5 passengers, and have a range of 225 miles. Why am I excited? This vehicle has enough… Read More

Since the banking industry has been declared as being in a mess this week, I thought a post about the banking industry would make sense. Over on The Green Skeptic, there is an article about the banking industry building “green” buildings (click here). In fact, there is a local branch of Chase Bank in Weatherford… Read More

Today as I was walking from my car to the library at SWBTS, I realized that this morning was probably a lot like the mornings in the garden of creation. The cool of the morning glides against my face, and gives me energy in my lungs. The sun glows behind the clouds. It’s warm tones… Read More

I read an interesting post over at the NCC Blog. It was about Gustav evacuees, and it called them “climate refugees”. I found this term intriguing. The wikipedia definition (while certainly not definite) describes a climate refugee as, “a displaced person caused by climate change induced environmental disasters. Such disasters are evidence of human-influenced ecological… Read More

I’ve been doing a little reading over at before bed lately. I noticed a little TerraPass graphic in some guys signatures, so I finally checked it out. The website is pretty cool, and looks great. The picture is one of their badges… They have a store where you can buy energy saving devices, or… Read More
