By 2050, it’s estimated that we will have 12 million metric tons of wind turbine blades to throw away, so how do we prevent all of them from ending up in a landfill? This week on The Biofriendly Podcast we discuss the ways of recycling wind turbines into everything from concrete to candy, why you should hold on to your nickels, and does Noel do the greatest tap dance routine in history?
When most people think about renewable wind energy, they imagine clean, blue skies, fluffy clouds and a well-placed lens flare as a gloss-white, mill-blade splits the sun. It is a beautiful image representing the promise of a cooler and healthier tomorrow. What I think of is, a Wedge-Tailed Eagle dipping and dodging (fighter pilot style), […]
When it comes to the topic of Nuclear Energy, most of the public’s perception has been darkened by Chernobyl and even TV shows like The Simpsons with images of glowing green goop. But this week, Noel and Jacob present how Nuclear Power could be crucial in our transition towards creating sustainable, carbon-free energy!
When it comes to the future of green energy, we looked no further than the Great White North of Canada where we were introduced to David Dodge, acclaimed environmental journalist and host of the popular multi-media podcast, Green Energy Futures. David shares the story of his humble beginnings as a forester, and how it eventually led him to document the clean energy revolution that’s already underway.
This week we welcome our guest engineer, scientist and inventor, Michael Carroll. Mike shares a little bit about the incredible work his company, Helios Altas, is doing with hydro-powered energy in remote places around the world in need of power. We also discuss the current state of renewable energy, how water dams are theme parks for fish, and wind energy is not for the birds.
Wind turbines are a sight many people are used to seeing, if not in and around their cities and towns, at least on the news. Collecting energy from the power of the wind is one of many renewable energy sources. It’s right up there along with solar and hydroelectric power. Here in California we see wind […]

In this day and age, finding ways to lower our environmental impact are front and center not only in the minds of individuals around the world, but at the state, federal and international level as well. In fact, actions are being taken across the globe to combat the impact we are having on the environment […]
Image by Charles Cook / Creative Commons With Google recently investing a hundred million dollars into the world’s largest wind farm, alternative energies continue to be a hot topic amongst environmentalists, businesses, corporations, governments and investors alike. Opting for a greener, more environmentally-friendly method of powering our world is something many people are actually beginning […]
Well, this week has gone by faster than I realized. Although that can also be looked at as a good thing too. One thing I did notice was that there were some very interesting developments on the green/environmental side of life (hmmm….wait a second, what side of life isn’t somehow connected to the environment?). Anyway, […]
