Squat To Trot

Commuters can now get both daily exercise and a free subway ticket by doing a 30-squat fitness session in the Moscow subways. No, really. It’s a promotion for the upcoming 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics (photo/inset compiled from Mashable). How about New York? Times Square, 8 a.m.?

4 Awesome Bicycling Videos!

Copenhagenize, a tremendous bicycling blog based in… Copenhagen, recently posted four awesome bicycling videos (ads/commercials, basically). None of the videos are in English, but Copenhagenize’s Mikael Colville-Andersen took the time out of his day to translate them. They’re great advertisements for bicycling, I think, and most of them are just plain funny, too. So, here they

Colbert Chats with GOP Wordsmith/Spinmaster, Confuses Him (Video)

Frank Luntz is, no doubt, good with words (and a little more than that). He holds his fair share of responsibility for the climate crisis we’re in, too, as he has helped the Republican Party avoid action on this critical topic through word games. (Note: he doesn’t like talking about that much these days.)

The uber-funny Stephen Colbert sat down with him recently to learn a trick or two. The resulting video is hilarious (while also a bit interesting). The funny thing is, Luntz seems to not get that Colbert’s job is to be ridiculous and funny while also poking fun at crazy Republicans. Not sure how he could not get that, or if he just gets irritated somewhat easily.

Charlie Sheen Cartoon, Climate Change, and the U.S. Today

We’ve got a lot of crazy stuff going on these days. It makes you wonder if society isn’t just increasingly obsessed with craziness and subconsciously determined to do crazy, self-destructive things… what else would explain our obsession with Charlie Sheen, our ignorance of and inaction on catastrophic climate change, and our decision to put people

Global Warming Cartoon, Glimpse of the Future

Here’s a great cartoon from Matt Bors of The Free Press. Funny, but also sad. h/t Climate Progress Related Cartoons: Fox News Serving Up Climate Skepticism Earth is an Oil-Coal-holic The Republican Triple Threat Global Warming — What If It’s a Big Hoax Here Comes Trouble Related Stories: Snow Will Fall Despite Climate Change Why

Green Living Stories of the Last Week (or So)

OK, one more wrap-up this week. And perhaps our last weekly wrap-up, period. As I am thinking I will switch to daily wrap-ups instead. (Let me know if you have any objection.) As the title says, this wrap-up is of good or cool green living stories. Biking Biking is one of the greenest things you

What Happened in Cancun? [FUNNY VIDEO]

Did you have a hard time following the COP 16 climate negotiations in Cancun last year? Want a quick wrap-up of what happened? Well, a little late perhaps, but the UK Youth Delegation to COP 16 in Cancun has created a nice little video wrapping things up. Basically, a replay of the conference. For more

Best Climate or Energy Humor of 2010

Joe Romm of Climate Progress has a post up on the best climate and energy cartoons or other humor of 2010. Definitely worth a share. Here are few cartoons from the post as a teaser. More in the article and a ton more good ones in the comments. Enjoy! (I thought about compiling my own

Funny, Funny Video of Australian Senator

This video is extremely funny. It looks like the Onion in video format. I wasn’t sure at first, but thanks to a reader for letting us know that this is a comedy skit, not real life. Nonetheless, you have to watch this video. Too funny. Thanks to Tim Hurst of ecopolitology for this great

Tax Babies, Save the Planet!

This is another of those “I thought I’d heard everything” articles, and it comes to us from Australia. Medical expert Associate Professor Barry Walters has proposed a $5000-plus levy on each new baby born, and an annual carbon tax of $800 for each child in the family. His proposal, according to the article on,

What’s In A Name? Fjuckby, For Instance?

Well, the residents of that Swedish community have been fighting with the National Heritage Board for a new name, or at least a return to the old name. Globalization has apparently led to rude English-language associations that residents of this small community could live without. The whole thing apparently started in the 1930’s when the

Clothesline or No Clothesline, That is the Question

Well, I’ve read it all, and just after I thought every possible dumb thing had been reported, along comes an article in this week’s TIME Magazine that made my jaw drop. Community and homeowners associations across the country are trying to ban the use of clotheslines in their communities. According to the article, they seem

Gore is a Liar and NBC has Capitulated to the Tree-Hugging Left

Those are the conclusions of one Dr. Dave Mason, owner of a tech site, Dave, and host of his own syndicated tech-oriented radio program. It would appear the good “doctor’s” environmental stethoscope has been misplaced into some dark region, and his environmental view small enough to fit through the eye of a needle. Now
