I have recently bought Canon sx130is from Amazon just after seeing the positive reviews. When I received this product, I realized that this runs on AA batteries which is really frustrating for me. I couldnât return it because of some companyâs policy. Now I have to look for better option for rechargeable batteries for this Canon sx130is. Now I have to go with AA batteries only. So, tell me about the best rechargeable batteries for this Canon sx130is which I can buy? I would be really glad, if someone can help me. Thanks.

Is it worth to install a solar power attic fan? I sit more expensive than the conventional one? Please get back to me with some appropriate reviews. Thanks.
Green revolution, a path to conserve resources effectively, requires not only switching over to the humble “reuse and recycling” theme but also to efficiently manage one’s power consumption which is scare. One step in this technologically advanced era is optimizing the energy consumption by one’s PC, desktops or laptops. Some simple things to keep in mind that include switching off the systems when not in use, keeping the monitor off when the computer is ideal, turning on the “power-save” mode, using LCD monitors that cut down upto 50% on power consumption, switching over to “energy star” labeled systems, although make a lot of difference to the way we use our systems, the influx of many software that enhance the performance and minimize the energy/power consumption have made one’s life even more simpler and green automatically without requiring much supervision on one’s part.
While we walk through the past to enhance our achievements over the years, we realize that with the evolution of man at every stage of civilization leading to success, growth, and development man has created a niche of self destruction for himself in the form of global pollution problems resulting in major health hazards.

The world is adapting an eco friendly approach towards life. The internet has brought in a revolution in the field of ecological information sharing. Green search engines are the best innovations that existing search engines provided to eco-conscious users. These search engines search the content and deliver the results, filtering out the non-ecological approaches. These search engines can be used to focus information based research towards ecological development. Google and Yahoo have further popularized the concept, where they donate the advertising amount of these searches for charitable cause. However, they have very stringent mechanism for these green search engines against fooling the system for raising money. Therefore, there are three kinds of green search engines. The first are the search engines that donate amount for charity, second are the search engines based on ecological web searching and the final types are based on general searching with an ecological angle. Here are five best search engines based on the above criteria for searching green. Read on.
Not many of us are aware that Styrofoam is made of only 5% polystyrene and the rest is air thus making it highly popular in the insulation and craft industries. Styrofoam, although when discovered received great appreciation and niche usage especially for its insulation and buoyancy properties, very soon met its fate when environmentalists questioned its hazards on health and environment.
If you really wish to have a widespread perception on the global situation, piece together multitudes of close-ups and have a thorough look of the people profiles. When it is not possible for you to do, then grab ‘Hungry Planet’, by Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio who, I think, have really been hungry the way they have compiled the profiles of thirty families from around the world, with eye-catching photographic essays and black and white account of each family’s weekly food intake. The minuteness and description of the book’s compilation is so enthralling and stunning it almost reveals each fast fact of the compiled families.
The structural frame of the book is consisted with a series of full-page photographs of each family posed around their entire week’s worth of food purchases, and each of the image has a gripping on its own, comprising concentrated visual description depicting the cultural and commercial context of the families.
UK is planning to introduce a new law aimed at combating climate change. And amazingly three quarters of UK’s population would support it, Friends of the Earth‘s survey reveals.
Friends of the Earth surveyed some 1,233 people to make this study. They were asked if they would back a law that requires an annual reduction of emissions in UK CO2. The statistics go like this:
75% said they would,
5% said they would not,
19% of respondents said they don’t know.
So, with this survey result, UK can now go optimistic with its effort to meet its target of reducing CO2 emissions by 20% by 2010. The new and existing policies will deliver a cut of 15-18% by the end of the decade, the Climate Change Programme review projects.
