True Green Home

True Green Home is the followup to True Green and gives 100 tips for creating a greener home.

Not all of the tips are directly related to reducing carbon emissions, but the ones that do are very good. This is a handy read for anyone building or renovating a home - and is even useful if you're just looking to run your home a bit greener.

Balloon Ratings

Like the ACF scorecard, the Climate Institute has published its own election ratings of the party's policies. As i write, the greens policies are 2 and a half stars better than the next best party.

Of course, looking at the policies of the two L parties, it's hard not to make the obvious balloon-themed jokes about hot air, wind and drifting along aimlessly. :)

Climate Change Tops Triple J Poll

Triple J (and it's news program Hack) tends to attract younger listeners, so it was great to see this poll showing their top election issue as Climate Change.

Now, if only the more "mature" voters could broaden their focus beyond the short-term and trivial matters.

Global Warming

The sub title of this book (The Causes, The Perils, The Solutions, The Actions) pretty much describes the contents.

Written in 2006, most of the information is covered in other books, but being produced by the people at Time Magazine, the photos are brilliant.

Australia Worse Than US

This interactive map comes from the people at Chartsbin, and illustrates the per-person emissions of each country - from the burning of fossil fuels (with heavy shading indicating high polluting)

Hovering over each country on the map, displays that country's emissions. For the record, Australia's pollutes at about 5 times the world average.
