I had to share this with you!

Bidder said it was easy to rig government auction

A college student who infiltrated a government auction for oil and gas parcels said he didn't plan to run up prices and disrupt the sale until an auction clerk asked him, "Are you here to bid?"
With that, Tim DeChristopher, 27, a University of Utah economics student and environmental activist, showed his driver's license, picked up bidding paddle No. 70 and quietly seated himself in the bidding hall on Friday.
He snapped up 22,500 acres of parcels between Arches and Canyonlands national parks that he doesn't plan to develop or even pay for. He also drove up prices on other bids by hundreds of thousands of dollars.....more here

New Years, new partners in Green! announces a new partnership with Along with a host of great green companies, TheSuperGreenPages will promote, a marketing company that is stepping up for climate change! A little about Gogreenexpo:
Go Green Expo, the brainchild of Bradford Rand and his team at Expo International, was conceived after a viewing of the film "An Inconvenient Truth." It prompted the question, "How can we make a difference?" This question resonated with Rand and his team and Go Green Expo was born. Rand, a producer of over 700 trade shows and job fairs over the last 14 years knew he could step up to this important challenge.
A truly unique event from the ground up, Go Green Expo will change not only the public's perception of environmentalism but also how events like this are produced and managed. Inviting companies large and small to showcase what they are doing to reduce their respective carbon footprint, consumers will have hands on experiences with "eco-friendly" alternatives to current everyday products and services.
The inaugural Go Green Expo took place in New York City in April of 2008 with 250+ exhibits, 50+ speakers, and eco-film festival & nearly 10,000 participating.
Go Green Expo invites both consumers & business owners to learn more about what is readily available so they can take steps to purchase earth friendly products & services to make our communities greener, one city at a time.

New Expos in 2009 will take place in New York, LA, Philadelphia, and Atlanta.

The New Year approaching...

Well friends... The new year is approaching and after all the festivities and ringing the new year in, we start our resolutions. Why not start those resolutions now? For many of us, the new year will bring a new President, new administration, new habits to break, new weight loss to achieve, and new goals to pursue. But why not start now? If you read this blog, then you have interest in going green and/or at least what I think about it. Well, I think it's time to think green now! That may mean many different things to many different people. Green for me, means, making sustainable choices for me and my family, being active in my community, and greening my finances. I look for ways to improve my life and my community now, so my new years resolutions won't be so hard to achieve.
I recycle more than ever, exercise and walk more, by green affordable products and network with people who want to make a difference for our planet! You can also make an effort to change your habits and ways now to a greener life. Start with a list, and work on it throughout the year, but start now. People tend to believe one person can't make a difference, but anytime we seek to improve ourselves, we improve the world. If you aren't sure where to start check out some of theses books at
