Living amongst the trees-Ewoks attempt to pass zoning ordinances to keep humans on the ground

August 8, 2008

Inhabitat ran a post about 2 weeks ago talking about these funky little fishbowls in the trees.

Our Planet Retreats, an innovative UK-based company, is building eco-resorts in gorgeous pristine locations like the Phillipines, Vanatu, and Papua New Guinea. Visiting guests stay in simple floating spheres in the trees that are reached by spiral stairs. Crafted from fiberglass and built by locals, each sphere can accommodate up to 4 people. The first resort is comprised of 12 spheres. Other sustainable features include small solar panels and solar water heating systems.

UK MP-Every adult should have to carry “carbon ration cards.”

May 29, 2008

Man…a national ID card, now these carbon ration cards. I’m going to need a new government-issued wallet with the optional terrorist message decoder ring. Something from a non-animal source of course, with a low carbon foot-print, and not too snazzy looking, lest anyone think I’m materialistic. Ration this.

Here’s another ration card for you from our friends at The People’s Cube which, ironically enough is a satire on socialism, so I’m sure it’s got lots of global warming content there.
