Rock 'N' Roll melds with enviro news

Lotsa rockin' enviro news lately. I've been busy starring stuff in Google Reader.

Like this: The Anaconda, a new invention that uses rubber tubes to capture wave energy and spin turbines. Think Snakes on a Plane, but with the plane underwater (sans the dead people and Samuel L). Each Anaconda generates about 1 MW, almost as much as those 300-foot tall windmills. I like big butts and I cannot lie.

From guns to roses: Villagers in Bulgaria have begun harvesting blooms for organic rose oil. The same village used to be known for making AK-47s. But they may have to go back to guns. Thanks climate change! Welcome to the jungle.

Eco-friendly concerts: Going green is so popular, bands are doing it when they tour. Organic beer, anyone? There's a list of the hottest 10 green music tours at The Daily Green (call me). Who's good AND green (Mullet-Approved if you will)? The pickings are pretty slim. But Motley Crue is on there. I missed Crue Fest tonight at Pine Knob, by the way, but at least I got to have a Flurry with the kids (Hello Reeses).

Wouldn't it be even more rockin' if Samuel L. WAS on board?
