Laptop Burka

Why didn’t I think of that?

clipped from

Laptop Burka, Inc., is an owner-operator company in
the Pacific Northwest. Inventor and entrepreneur Marc Johnson
devised Laptop Burka after he grew frustrated with ineffective
methods of reducing glare on laptop screens. Nothing lived up to the
potential claimed by the latest hype from operating systems or
clumsy external devices.
Laptop Burka does the hard work other antiglare
devices just can’t do. And it works with any laptop computer, and
with any ordinary hat. Since it’s made from high-quality,
breathable, lightweight fabric –you take it anywhere, anytime.

Biomass. That sounds ok, doesn’t it?

Well, it sounds better than tree burning for electricity.

The industry types got biomass included in the green energy tax credits and it’s off and running, but is it green?

Dr. Tom Termotto and I don’t think so.

“. . . Biomass incineration is NOT clean and green, it’s not sustainable and
renewable; it’s not carbon neutral, not cost effective;
and it’s neither environmentally friendly nor ecologically sound.”

By Dr. Tom Termotto
Shall we begin by stating that biomass incinerators are rarely, if ever, factually represented by the many sales pitches we see issued by the Energy Industry sector that promotes them. In fact, the marketing language that has now become de rigueur is reminiscent of George Orwell’s 1984. “War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.”
To the point, biomass incineration is NOT clean and green, sustainable and renewable, carbon neutral and cost effective, or environmentally friendly and ecologically sound. It is quite the opposite of these beautiful and alluring marketing slogans. Biomass incineration is in reality quite polluting, unsustainable to the extreme and, in some cases, less environmentally friendly than coal burning plants.
