The Great e(Earth)-Roundup April 22, 2009

Happy Earth Day! In honor of this occasion, all links below are environmental and health-oriented. If you'll excuse me, I am off to bike bus to work! (Too late to bike!) Pics from the trip, to come. (Post part 2 I promised, to come tomorrow! I can't possibly write about things that are helpful but we don't really need, on Earth Day. Sacrilegious.)

Links to be added throughout the day (newest at the top) as I come across Earth-related stories I want to share, keep refreshing.

Waiting for my ride

And there it is
