MySpace’s Our Planet Book

Today’s youth constitutes a substantial amount of the world’s population. The youth of this generation will be forced to live longer with the current consequences of the environmental decisions made by their adult counterparts. Future generations to come will be affected directly by the environmental actions we complete today. The depletion of resources, the loss of biodiversity, and growing radioactive wastes will play a role in the future of our children. Environmental education is one of the best ways to provide the youth with the necessary cognitive abilities to recognize and withstand the pressures of advertising. An education is required which teaches young people how the world’s ecosystems are in danger and how to draw links between an advertiser’s product and it’s ecological consequences. This type of education may have been difficult for prior generations to grasp but the youth today is the key to changing the environment. Young people have lived all their lives in an era where environmental issues are present. Anti-ecological ways of thinking and behaving are not instilled in the minds of today’s youth. If they are provided with the right amount of environmental education and awareness potential for change can take place. Young people who are stimulated with environmental issues can create new ideas and views on the issues involving the planet. It is important for the youth to take a leading role in the environment. Regardless, of what level a young person desires to participate in environmental protection the first step is an education in awareness.

MySpace which happens to be the most popular social networking website for teenagers and young adults have a new book. It’s called MySpace’s Our Planet Book. This book is geared towards teens and young adults to educate them on environmental protection. MySpace’s Our Planet Book is a guide informing the youth what they can do to save the planet. Similar to MySpace which is an interactive community the book consists of eco-tips submitted by users on the social network from around the globe. The book provides a friendly demeanor as it guides you in what exactly you can do today to change the environment for the better. MySpace’s Our Planet Book informs readers on the facts about the current state of the environment. Giving real-life stories and suggestion on how everyone can make a difference in the state of the environment.The concept of this book is to bring environmental awareness to the youth and educate them on how to become more involved in maintaining the planet’s health. This book is printed on post-consumer-waste recycled paper with vegetable-oil based inks. The authors of MySpace’s Our Planet Book are Jeca Taudte, Tom Anderson, and all of their friends at MySpace who added eco-tips. The book can be purchased for $12.99 from the MySpace website or at various bookstores such as Barnes & Noble. This book is an excellent step towards youth environmental awareness. The MySpace’s Our Planet profile page on the website has more details on the book, loads of additional environmental information as well as a plant a tree on your profile program. Every virtual tree a user posts on their MySpace profile a real tree will be planted. Consider giving MySpace’s Our Planet Book to a teen you know and help the future generations save the planet.

Hydrogen Car and Multi Fuel DVD & Book

In a world gone wrong with pollution and over-consumption, many inventions are geared towards keeping or saving a green earth. Worth noticing among the many exceptional inventions made with this scope in mind is the Hydrogen Car. With the fuel prices rising every day and the increasing need to shift toward alternate and renewable fuel resources, a vehicle running on hydrogen might just be what the doctor ordered.

What Does This Product Do?

The main idea is to convert a standard gas-guzzler into a Hydrogen Car. No dealership actually sells such an innovative vehicle therefore that is not what can be bought from this website ( What you do get is even better: the know-how of converting a regular engine, such as the one in that beloved and trusty old sedan resting in your driveway, into a hydrogen-based, highly fuel efficient engine. The transformation would reduce fuel consumption down to a third. Once modified, this hydrogen-based engine would be able to:

* Run on any type of hydrogen, no matter its level of purity.

* Instantly improve fuel efficiency through a process called “hydrogen boosting”, where a small amount of pressurized hydrogen is injected into any type of fuel (natural gas, methane, bio fuel, producer gas and such) to bring down the cost at about 75 cents per gallon.

* Use any type of fuel, however degraded such as straight gasoline, low octane or even lawnmower fuel with the help of “hydrogen boosting”. Worries for gas could then be over for ever.

* Mix gasoline and diesel together with “hydrogen boosting” to get a readymade “engine cocktail”.

* Use low or non-sulfur diesel after adding hydrogen to it.

* Run on alcohol, turpine oil, propane, vegetable oil, rejected oil from commercial fryers (which simply requires filtering) and so on.

In other words, almost anything could power up any engine at one third of regular gas costs. Isn’t this simply wonderful?

How is this Accomplished?

A dynamic duo formed of Roy McAlister and Steven Harris is bringing this concept to the public after having personally used it for over 40 years. Harris discovered and developed the basics during his time as an engineer at the Chrysler Motors Company (now known as the reputable Daimler-Chrysler), and then was joined by McAlister who specializes in vehicular energy and electrochemistry. Together they produced a DVD meant to teach car owners, frame by frame, how to transform a regular engine into a hydrogen-based motor which can do all the above-mentioned wonders.

Not only is a massive reduction in gasoline costs accomplished when using such an engine, but it also helps in bringing down harmful emissions currently and increasingly plaguing our entire planet. An enterprise that actually allows the accomplishment of two goals: (1) Save a car owner from wasting a bundle of money (2) Save the environment which is being wasted in large part by car owners.

Though this instructional DVD is exceptionally clear and easy to follow, the authors recommend to first try and convert a small engine such as that of a lawnmower or a moped. This initial step provides the ability to learn hands-on the process of setting up the conversion materials. Once comfortable with the kinks and twists, these newly found skills can be used to transform a genuine car engine into a hydrogen-based one for a car to be driven with enjoyment and absolutely no worries for fuel consumption, since your car can now literally run on anything. Except maybe for water…
