Green Racine

Welcome to Green Racine!

Please check the page out and visit the links. I love Nuke and Wind Power. Still think we should drill here and drill now!
A wide mix here from Green power to why we need to end the Embargo on Cuba.
I see myself as being GREEN but far from an Al Gore Green Nazi.
Hope this page provokes thought if nothing else

Spring and News!!

The winter sucks for doing much outside and I did do some Podcasting. Had Ms Mead on again from Victory Garden Initiative on again always a great interview.
Coming into Spring we have happy news! We may be renting up to 10 ac of land to go along with the 3 in Caledonia. I think this would make us one of the largest farms dedicated to growing food into the Farmers Markets East of I-94. The plan is to grow a range of food that one does not usually find in Farmer's Markets. A my Father would have said if everyone is growing Corn grow something else. there is a huge need in this area for good local products and I plan to help meet=t that need. If I must I will also create the distribution poit for the food as well
This will be a challenge but not one I can not overcome.
Nice thing is my Employer is helping me do this. I work for Pacific Sands as an outside sales and crazed Marketing guy. To say thinks to my Boss if you go to and use the code greenracine your save 10% and help me out too. Have great environmentally friendly products (End of plug.) Needed to say that as so many companies "do" green things Pacific Sands does. More very soon

Bird Feeders

Got the birds coming to the feeders. No major issues with Squirrels. Receiving Seed Catalogs in the mail. DO NOT USE OLD SEEDS I did to try and save cash but 90% of those seeds did not grow. So yes it might cost more cash but please IMHO new seeds maybe not each year after say two or three years use new. Might have been how we stored them but why take chances?
Found that Detroit is doing cool things with Urban Gardens wish Racine would. Looks more like to me that our Mayor thinks IMHO that it is more critical to enrich his pals then it is to say help feed the hungry.

The new $550,000 addition to the Sustainable Energy Education Center/Wind Energy and Turbine Technology building on the Estherville, Iowa, campus of Iowa Lakes Community College has been officially dedicated.

KCUA-TV reports that the new 6,200 square-foot addition is ready for the spring semester, which begins on Jan. 14. Financing for the facility was paid, in part, with a $350,000 loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

"This addition provides state-of-the-art technology for our wind energy students and allows them to learn necessary skills for the wind industry in a controlled environment prior to working on wind turbines," says Valerie Newhouse, college president. "The addition allowed the college to accept two more sections of students into the wind energy program."

UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen COP 15/CMP 5, 7 to 18 December 2009

UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen COP 15/CMP 5, 7 to 18 December 2009

Or is about the power and the cash not the Climate

Where do I begin? If any thinks this effort has anything to do with climate you should quit drinking.
Be it the UN The Government on the United States or ever the State of Wisconsin its all about the money and power.

1st example The bad cows are creating global warming so lets tax them effect raise milk prices Of course The states will follow more price increases. With State and the Feds running so much into debit who will vote no? Of course Milk consumption will go down because milk might become to costly for the poor to buy. They will then turn to suger favored drinks like Soda that will cause more obesity in the youth (another taxing opportunity tax soda so kids will not drink as much of it)

Then you have manure to worry about now used on many organic farms to fertilize crops crops to avoid the use of man made fertilizer manure could now be outlawed cause/forcing the use of more chemicals as inputs on your food. Of course this would cause food prices to go up too to pay for chemicals.
I love the fact that Al Gore is now worth 200 Million up from the 2 million after leaving the white house, thats a what 1000% growth I think? Must be nice consulting the companies that will grow very very rich if Cap and Trade goes down. Gee you do not think he getting paid to promote something that's not happening do you?? Not Al Gore inventor of the internet? I know that Gore has been invited to debate the FACTS behind Global Warning and he has yet to do so, he has had reporters mics shut off to stop the reporters from asking him questions. I believe Al Gore wants no debate on Global Warming (be easier to get his money??)
