Get Winded: Breaker, Beer & Power

A Wind Is Coming In!

1. Standing on deck out in the ocean air while volunteering with other bad-ass activists for The Sea Shepard Conservation Society could be more than a little breezy. Stopping the whaling and dolphin -killing industries are not easy unless you have some amazing wind breaker rain jacket made from 100% recycled poly, so get ready for wet & breezy. From Patagonia

DB’s Etiquette Recommendation: Like celebs? What do Mick Jagger, Orlando Bloom, Ed Norton, Uma Thurman, Maggie Q, Justin Long, Naomi Watts, Pierce Broznan, and Anthony Kiedis have in common? They are all huge Sea Shepherd supporters. Getting involved in activism is sophisticated, sexy and smart. Interested in joining the most active volunteer marine conservation organization in the world? There are many ways to volunteer for Sea Shepherd both at sea and on shore.

2. Brooklyn Brewery Williamsburg Brooklyn’s very own beer company is not only great purveyors of vegan beer, but they run on 100% wind power. Next time you are out for drinks, ask for the green beer.

3. Did you know that if you are a Con Edison Energy customer (residential or business) even if you rent – you can switch your energy to come from Wind Power? Con Ed Solutions.

I just switched over to Wind last week. WIND Power is only an additional 2.5 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh). Basically, if your bill was 750 KH last month, you’ll only be spending $15 more this month and doing a ton of good for the planet.

    Green beer, expensive wind power….no thanks.
    Global warming is the scam of the century.

  2. Scavenger,
    I am not going to engage in this debate with you, but I will say only this and then cut this off (because believe it or not, you’re not the first person to adopt this convenient and responsibility-absolving belief): It is better to err on the side of caution – because even if there is a chance that your well-thought-out counter argument against almost every earth-scientist in the world is true – the worst thing that would happen is …what? Green marketing makes some money? Let’s reverse the equation and say that you are wrong, it is happening – what’s the worst that could happen in the case that everyone followed your brilliant assumption that global warming is just a scam? Ecological collapse. Which is worse? Buying some green products unnecessarily and economic recession or ecological collapse? It’s simple. Once again – it is better to err on the side of caution.
