US Map Showing Turfgrass AreasThere's a lot of lawn out there. NASA used its Earth Observatory (see map) to estimate over 40 million acres of lawn! That's 3x the amount of area sowed in corn. That's the largest irrigated crop in America. That's big!

Personal Rapid Transit via JPodI love Hull! A beautiful beach arching along the Atlantic bookended by majestic big wind turbines and populated by an energized citizenry.

We do several sustainability events in the name of the Pearl's Premium grass seed mission to make the American lawn sustainable - less mowing, less watering, no chemicals - and always have fun there.

Check out their latest idea (photo at left) and join them this Sunday afternoon from 1 to 4pm at Steamboat Wharf, if you can, to talk about Personal Rapid Transit via JPod... very cool!

The contest gives small businesses the chance to win free round trip airfare to anywhere in the British Airways network. So, they can see their opportunities face-to-face.

Buckminster FullerI'm back on the road attending the 2010 Buckminster Fuller Challenge in DC. The event showcased amazing sustainability ideas and was attended by an eclectic and inspiring group of free thinkers, from a WWII fighter pilot who traded in his citizenship to become a citizen of the world to astro-physisists who are mapping the galaxy.
