Going green : Saving the planet project : Come here ! Answered

Hello everyone. Looking at the rising of all the awareness programs of saving the planet and going green. I thought why not we here at instructables could gather and make a small team of engineers, electricians, high voltage people, hobbits, and project builders to share ideas on how to save the planet and go green. the main purpose of this topic is to discuss and design new gadgets, machines and mechanisms to save the planet to carbon emission and use of fossil fuel. So if you have a idea people over here could evaluate it and try to test is out......who knows it could be a future source of energy to the world. So your ideas and suggestions are welcomed.

I was wondering with all the green projects and all I also though since people in Mesopotamia used fired bricks which actually used just mud, straw, and water. I was wondering if you all heard the effiency of it and how it saves energy bills and saves tons of money. I was wondering if any of you heard things about it?

What's a ba'basaur? My colleagues and I call ourselves babarians :-)

I interpreted it to be a contraction of Babe' asaur, but I could be wrong...although it could refer to Babar, the elephant

New since September 2008 and needs testing. These compound parabolic solar cookers work well and can be refined to work better still.

More of a general idea than a design: Thomas Friedman spoke at my school and said "Change your leaders, not your light bulbs." So write to your local representative in the House; tell them what matters, environment-related or otherwise.

Edward Mazria of Architecture 2030 has good ideas about changes to make in building codes. So, uh, build with LEED or some other standard in mind.

Moved from tech to green category. It needs a few keywords. There's a certain redundancy to this forum, in the sense that people post their projects on green and such quite happily to 'ibles, that and oddly the staff fit in to those categories, OK only randy fills the hobbit quota and even then its sketchy since he's only a third hobbit...

Wouldn't this be more appropriate under GREEN, if that is indeed the intent?
