Scottish Offshore Windfarm 11, Donald Trump 0.

Mr. Trump: You can save a little face and advertise on the wind turbines...

Ministers in Scotland have approved the windfarm project off the Aberdeen coast despite the opposition of windbag Donald Trump. The 11 wind turbine windfarm is expected to supply enough electricity to power half of the homes in Aberdeen. Supporters of the project should probably send Mr. Trump a fruit basket and thank you note for opposing it. His overseas asshole’ishness probably did more to push the project through than any other factor. [Guardian]

Thank You Rudy E. of Maine For Ordering Edison-Style LED Light Bulbs From Jubbling.

Edison Style LED Light Bulbs - 35 Watt Equivalent.A big thank you to Rudy E. of Maine for ordering Edison-style LED light bulbs from our Jubbling store.

In addition to making the switch to LED lighting, Rudy is also Jubbling by:

  • Spending the last 30 years trying to reduce the amount of energy he uses.
  • Living off-the-grid using wind & solar for most of the 1990’s.
  • Now living in a home that has a grid-tied PV system that supplies about 95% of the energy.
  • Drives a Chevy Volt plug-in.

LightHawk | Volunteer Pilots Donating Flights to Elevate ConservationAnother way Rudy is Jubbling is by leading LightHawk.org – an organization that pairs conservationists, who need a bird’s eye-view, with pilots willing to donate flight time. From LightHawk.org:

“LightHawk provides flight as a tool to protect land, water and wildlife in the U.S., Mexico, Central America and parts of Canada.”

Thanks again Rudy; we appreciate your order and your Jubbling.

Who’s More Energy Efficient: Red States Or Blue States?

Red state vs Blue State: Energy Consumption and rat's asses.Personally, I don’t give a rat’s ass but if you do, here’s a link to “Red States Are Less Energy-Efficient Than Blue Ones: Another Partisan Divide?” The last thing we need to do is to push both sides further apart – blue states feeling all superior and red states caring even less about energy efficiency.
