Gallery: GREENER GADGETS 2008 WRAP UP

 

Our first-of-its-kind Greener Gadgets Conference took place yesterday in New York City, and was a smashing success! We were thrilled to get such a great and diverse line-up of speakers, representing not only business and industry, but also academia, non-profit, students, environmental activists and designers. Not only did we completely sell out of our tickets, but we got people turning out from a wide variety of different industries and backgrounds. THANK YOU so much to everyone who attended and was involved in making the whole event so interesting, fun and fabulous!

    If Leopald Mac Ender really feels that you have a great idea to save the planet and just need money to realise it, why not try the virgin earth challenge? http://www.virginearth.com/

    I’m not exactly sure what Leo Mac Ender was trying to say, but I suspect it has something to do with how the great majority in the emerging “green” movement don’t really seem all that interested in saving the world at all. Mostly, it seems, people are just hoping to feel better about how we’re destroying it.

    “Greener Gadgets”? Is that really any kind of answer? It reminds me of a statement by environmental sci-fi writer Kim Stanley Robinson in a recent interview where he stated that the term “sustainability” doesn’t even mean sustainable any longer for most people. It means “let’s continue to do what we’re doing, but somehow get away with it”.

    It’s just like how “organic” stopped being a movement and instead became merely a label. If “green” isn’t a values-based system — if it’s not fundamentally about leading a different way of life — then all we’re doing is just whistling into the wind, aren’t we?

    This is very good and will someaday lead to somewhere somehow.
    But HOW MANY have done something for real?
    This is big words from me but I could save the world if I finde some group or Company who really understand what I have done and will be able to do in the future.
    Floating POWERstations in ANY rivers in USA will take care of ALL Power for US, ALL power.
    There is allso solutions so we do not have to use ANY gasoline or oil at all, ever.
    I have surched people like AL GORE but they are yest turning arround and will do nothing at all about how to safe the world, they think that TALK will safe the world. .
    I do not think talking people really like to safe the world from more pollutions, not at all.
    I have the total solutions, welcom who ever it will be, to see that I´m not joking.
    All the best to they who REALLY doing och like to do something.
    If you are REALLY interested welcome to my world for saving the globe.
