Unpollute means Advocating Environmentalism!

Feel free to give money to unpollute, it is fraud proof because it's simple.  I will keep it honest and financially  transparent.   Donated money will go to pay the Ning bill, then Unpollute-dot-Com domain bill, next a Ning Upgrade, then a new computing device, and last but not least the Offset Project known as Unpollute invented by yours truly... Unpollute boils down to funding individuals and businesses to use  daily alternative  or Zero Emission transportation methods and to participate…

An article about Pollution's Favorite US Cities.

Sometimes I feel like it's cheating just to post links... but it's better than nothing.

This first one is to the article "America's Dirtiest Cities" at Forbes.com written by Christopher Helman.

Unpollute PDX

My Unpollute Bill is a key solution to climate change and other worldly issues. But now rewritten as a overall charter, I can use it as a template to move along through my business plan.

Locally, I plan to start "…

Crossbar Passengers

I bike with my daughter on the crossbar of my road bike all the time, much like you see this with this guy and the girl in front:

I think it's kinda funny that I don't have an actual picture of us to share, but such is life...

Don't worry, my passenger gets a helmet, something soft and fitted to sit on, sits straight on, not side-saddle, and has a place to set her feet. My tires aren't flat, but that's about the only thing that isn't… Continue

Writings for MyCommuteSucks.org

I love biking to work and home. On the heavy traffic streets there is too much pollution from the cars, trucks, buses, and ultility vechicles. Even here in Portland, OR. School buses in the morning are scary-aggressive! Large vechicle drivers: please try to accelerate as smoothly as possible, you're wasting 20% or more of your fuel on those pointless fast-breaks from a stop. If you had to do the work instead of the engine then you'd go easier on… Continue

Link Blog! Meet EcoSpeed...

EcoSpeed I tried 2 of these out and wow! No joke: wow! One was a lenghened for cargo/kids upright style bike and the other was a recumbent ttrike. Pretty fun! Great prices too. Now I know what to save for! (The cargo bike!) And I'd be home in about 20 minutes even being tired after work!

Good news in the news, PDX Green again...

Shelby Wood's PDX Green in the Oregonian lastest article is about Tax-Credits in the stimulus and in Oregon: A discount for plug-in hybrids and all-electrics that'll make you look twice and this article is full of great links, too.

And so I replied,

Wow, money for zero emission vehicles. Great! Do you think you can help find any info about tax credits and tax write-offs for… Continue

The Mistress Fixed

The Mistress Fixed and other adventures. So she needed attention again, and I started the conversation with J, my wife, poorly. By the time I had acquired the parts I needed to fix my bike, my children were missing me and my wife was jealous. Well, then I spend hours just cleaning and taking apart my… Continue

Something else for Unpollute.Inc to do

Why must I have another new idea? Oh, the curse of thought...

Unpollute.Inc would like to make small business loans to people who would like to start up Zero Emission type businesses. Zero Emission transport, product production/distribution, services etc. Other Green businesses may also apply. Have a good business plan, Unpollute will be here to make you a small ($15,000 tops?) business loan to get it going...

Now I just need that grant or whatever to start up… Continue

Tieing it together: Peacebuilding and the words of Deepak Chopra

Some things are more important than me, or my website. Well, many things are... and Peace is one of them. Indeed, an unpolluted world HAS to be a peaceful one. So I've joined a peace site and here's some stuff I'd like to relate to the world:

Spreading the word is what it's about... so here it goes:

Busy on the internet...

Are you busy on the Internet? It's so huge and full of wonderful things and people, I was wondering what YOU like the most lately? I'm still on Pandora Radio a lot, it does such a great job picking new music I've never heard but totally love, it's like an automatic personal DJ... and I like Pandora on so much that I've not really been a big a fan of videos on the net, 'cause I have to pause the music! arrg... but there's some good videos out there, I'm sure. I like the two on… Continue

Daily Joy, but fewer days...

100% just got easier... My work has reduced my scheduled hours quite a bit due to the economic downturn. This is going to hurt. Mucho monetary pain! Between that and my forced vacation, I'm only working like a few more days in Dec, total!!!

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving.

I was ranting eariler and here's what I wrote:

Not quiting is a great method when it comes to biking, it's harding to come back into the cold if one takes a few cush rides in some cars.… Continue

Just a biking blog entry...

Boy did I ever have a nice bike ride in to work.

I personally tuned, tightened, trued, overhauled (rear hub), cleaned, lubed and repaired almost every issue I have with my bike.

Oh, and the wind was at my back the whole way.

And the evening sun, low but not yet setting, was warm and friendly; it cast a elongated but perfect shadow of a Portland bike commuter headed eight and half miles due East.

And as the speed and power started to go to my head, I… Continue
