It’s been several months since my last trip to and I was a bit disappointed that the featured articles weren’t very interesting. There is one on Go green this holiday season — timely — but I feel there are too many articles like this going around, posing as being Earth-friendly and yet trying to convince you to keep buying stuff. In keeping with the true, green spirit of the season, one would be better off with this Greener and Simpler Christmas article by the EcoWaste Coalition.

From Salon I checked out another favorite, and got a bit overwhelmed. Literally, too much info. If you want to know, though, why Shrek’s “better out than in” motto doesn’t hold true anymore, check out Hold the Fart and Global Farting. Peta scores, while as carnivores, can we simply not care or are (tasty) alternatives in sight?
