Green Jobs Q&A: How to find green jobs/volunteer work?

Question by : How to find green jobs/volunteer work?
It seems very hard. I can’t find one single thing other than doing what I can do as myself individualy to help. Are there any orginizations? Jobs? Volunteer work. Where do you live and what do you do with going green?

Best answer:

Answer by J.
See if your state has a coalition or council of nonprofits. Many do. Start there.

One thing I have witnessed with 501C3 groups involved with anything pertaining to alternative energy is they get rather parochial and territorial, and they also tend to put the blinders on themselves. They do not need to do so, and they would benefit many more people at less expense to themselves if they were not that way.

Many do not want to hear that, but this is the honest truth, I have seen it first hand. Because of that, they lose exposure. People such as yourself never hear of them. Many of those groups do not know how to promote their efforts effectively. Or worse- they shut off opportunities.

If nothing else- if you have actual skills, You know how to do something that many people may not know, Blog about it. A freind of mine has global reach with his blog that is of a technical nature. If it benefits some in the third world in some way- that is a big part of his goal. No 501C3 needed for him to do that.

Energy Efficient Homes Brand new energy efficient homes furnace barely blows any air out of vents, is this normal?

Question by : Brand new energy efficient homes furnace barely blows any air out of vents, is this normal?
Dampers, and vents have all been checked and the furance filter is also been changed monthly. It is not dirty. Our house is 2,400 square foot tight bi-level built in 2010. Our 60,000 BTU one stage furnace is 93% energy efficient. We have our thermostat set on the heat setting at 68 degrees and every room is not getting warmer than 64 degrees. Our vents are barely blowing out any air and our builder is saying that everything is done right. I don’t think this sounds correct being I have been a home owner before and never had this problem and I had put in a 90% energy efficient 2 stage furnace in my last home that was older and not as well insulated and the older home was warmer and kept the tempature better. We don’t think this is correct what do you think?
I live in the midwest Chicagoland area.
I finally have convinced the Builder to send out the heating and a/c company to come back out after many phone calls and emails. In fact it has taken 3 months to get them out here. I complained back in August when I first moved in that the rooms were not getting cold enough. They told me to give it time but by then I was done using the a/c,. So then it continued on to the heat. I ended up telling them that I had in fact called numerous heating and a/c companies for their professional opinion and all have stated that the furnace seems to be to small that they would have put in at least a 75,000 BTU furnace or that the duct work was not done correctly. They really did not want to but I was really raising hell since I have had quite a few other things going wrong too. So we shall see what they say.

Best answer:

Answer by Mr. Dent
the problem is where your thermostat is located..if the thermostat get satisfied for 68 degrees in your living room and the other rooms are 64 degrees..that would be about right..is there a vent nearby the thermostat? if so find a wall with no vent and no sun light or any light thats directly in its path as those are determining factors as well…

Green Building Difference between Traditional Green Building and Contemporary Building?

Question by zxsdwe: Difference between Traditional Green Building and Contemporary Building?
Is there difference between traditional green building and the contemporary one?

Best answer:

Answer by John
Do you mean what is the difference between traditional green building methods and contemporary green building methods, or traditional green building and regular modern building?

Traditional building methods were passed down from generation to generation and tended to preserve techniques and materials that did the job as well as possible in their environments. Building methods became more “sophisticated” with economic success; that is, wealthy people wanted houses that demonstrated their wealth no matter where they lived. Wealth enabled us to use materials and methods that had been restricted to small percentages of people in the past.

THis gave us more or less better shelters and convenience but we were not paying very much attention to the “carbon footprint” such methods and materials created. Now this is also being factored in to modern building methods and materials in a more scientific way and we are learning how to build buildings that “fit into” environments in a more biological way; for example, buildings that “breath” as opposed to ones that consume and create waste.

As with most sciences, building is still in its infancy but as more and more people apply their intelligence to this science, we will no doubt see some amazing alternatives to contemporary “consumer/waste” paradigms.

Republicans say global warming legislation will cost jobs. I say those jobs are really transformed into green jobs like windmill repair, contruction, and such.

Green Living Blogs Will the advent of seawater green houses change the ballance of global economics?

Question by finn mchuil: Will the advent of seawater green houses change the ballance of global economics?
Read this recently,

http://blogs.ei.columbia.edu/2011/02/18/seawater-greenhouses-produce-tomatoes-in-the-desert/

“The Seawater Greenhouse, however, provides what may be an economical and sustainable way of producing fresh water and crops in hot, dry regions near the ocean. Marco Goldschmied, President of the Royal Institute of British Architects, said in 2000,"The Seawater Greenhouse is a truly original idea which has the potential to impact on the lives of millions of people living in water-starved areas around the world."

Will there be a rush from big investors hoping to tap into profits or will this be a revolution that will see a shift in the major supply chains. What would this mean on a global scale?

Best answer:

Answer by John Z Wetmore
Tha balance of global economics? I doubt it. Even if they were successful in changing the lives of millions of people, that is essentially just a small niche in a world with billions of people.

Green Living Consulting Q&A: marriage for both love and green card in jeopardy?

Question by Nick: marriage for both love and green card in jeopardy?
A long story, but I believe all the details are important.

A friend of mine is a J-1 visa overstay here in the US.
How did it happen?
She came to this country – a well-educated young scientist, in search of happy life her home country couldn’t offer her. She’s 30 years plus, so it was very difficult to get a visa. And, while here, she learned that the ONLY option to stay in the US was marriage. She consulted an attorney, so no mistake with that. And was already thinking of paying someone for the “green card marriage” while still working here and making some money (not much). But – met a guy she fell in love with. He is an American citizen. He fell in love with her, too. He was probably not ready to get married asap, but he didn’t want to lose her. So he proposed. She never talked him into it, but accepted.
While being on her one-month grace period before the visa and legal ID totally expired, she moved to a different state to live with him and his family. They all like her a lot.
Her fiance started working with his lawyer on the pre-nuptial agreement: being in love doesn’t mean he would let her take away half of his property in case they get divorced. She accepted that and agreed, so the matter was supposed to be done with. But – it’s been 6 months. Her husband-to-be told her he’d take care of everything – she just had to wait. She’s got all the paperwork needed, no problem with that. And, being open with her fiance, asked him, if he really wants to get through it, does he really love her – or feels like he is pressured into a “green card marriage”. She also asked him, if he wants her to leave – or stay with him. He told her he loves her and wants to be with her, even though he didn’t think of himself as a married person often before they met. But he understands he may lose her if they don’t marry.
This guy brings her coffee in bed, cooks for her, lets her do her art projects, etc – since being out of status now she can’t get a job. She helps him and his parents around the house, they are both nice to each other. Sex life is fine, too.
Still, she is worried about how slow everything is going, and consulted an attorney on line: does a pre-nuptial agreement take so long to make? And the answer was – her boyfriend is just stalling, a pre-nup only takes a few hours to compose.
Yesterday she cried her heart out and I was listening – without knowing what to tell her.
Her man’s irrational fear of marriage may cost this girl a future. Now that she has overstayed 6 months in the US, she may get deported without the right to re-enter during the next 10 years.
Her only option to become legal here is marriage, remember. She can either wait for this guy to overcome his fears, or find someone else – a total stranger, just for a green card. That would be horrible, and she is very attached to her boyfriend, his family, their community. Everybody likes her, and wants the two of them to get married.
She’s upset by the fact her prospective hubby didn’t tell her he wasn’t quite working with his attorney… Probably he got into the comfort zone, – what they call “Why buy a cow if the milk is for free?” He knows she can’t go anywhere now, even take a Greyhound, because thay require ID there. He is a good guy, and almost 35 years old, but probably less mature than his girlfriend. Does he realize that she may be taken away from him?

I believe there must be a way out. I’ve known this girl for many years, and have seen her together with her bf many times. My impression is – he loves her and cares for her. And – hell, she deserves it. But he is a bit impulsive, and needs to grow up a little, even though he’s a very sharp guy – and a tall one :) An artist, dj, sound director. As you know, people of these occupations are not fond of social rituals. But he understands the whole situation.

All I could do for my friend is to assure her, that positive thinking works, even though who knows how much time it will take. I can see her here as a US citizen – and happy. What is important – she is making her man happy, too.

Hope it was just a freak out, praying for her.

Best answer:

Answer by AlenaT
Green card is not in jeopardy unless she get caught. The worst about it her bf is not realizing than she might have to wait in jail more than 2 months (especially without any valid document even more) for no other reason just awaiting her deportation. :-(

Question by Julie: What color palette can I choose to lessen the presence of the dark green couch in the living room?
My husband and I are about to move into an apartment. We do not have a couch and our friends are giving us theirs for free. It is in good condition it’s just a dark forest green color (which I’m not fond of). I will not cover with a slip cover as I’ve had too many issues with those in the past. What colors can I decorate the rest of the living room in to dull down the fact that we will have this green couch? I’m trying to go for a living room that isn’t too dark looking.

Thanks!

Green Home Plans Dying hair at home... will medium ash brown turn my hair green?

Question by Mandy: Dying hair at home… will medium ash brown turn my hair green?
I dyed my hair a dark brown with red tones in it about 2 months ago. It has now faded to a light brown with orange tones. (some places very orange from my super light blonde hair)

I got a box of medium ash brown hair dye and im planning on dying at home. Will this cancel out the orange color? Will it tint my hair green in the places where there isnt much orange?

Best answer:

Answer by SundaeRose
You had better make sure of what you are doing. Call clairol or the name of the company where you got the dye from. I know for a fact that my daughter used it on my granddaughter and turned her hair a real ugly gray. Now I have used it on my natural light brown hair to cover the gray and it does a great job.

Green Home Plans When you travel with a Green Card, do you need an American passport, or a passport from your home country?

Question by LiAn: When you travel with a Green Card, do you need an American passport, or a passport from your home country?
I just got approved for permanent residency today, at my initial interview. I have a trip to my home country planned for december. I still have my Belgian passport, which is still valid for a couple more years. I was wondering if that’s what I’ll keep on using since I am still a Belgian citizen. If so, how do I renew this once it expires, since I live in the US.

Thanks !!

Best answer:

Answer by Brother_Hesekiel
You will get a US passport once you are a US citizen. Until then, you will need your Beligian passport in order to even be allowed to enter a plane for an international flight. You will need the same passport and the Green Card to be allowed on a flight back to the US.

The Green Card allows you to visit Canada and Mexico without a visa.

Even the GI Bill has stipulations…yes, if you’re talking about the ROTC program, then you’ll be out at college as long as it takes to get a Bachelor’s and then back in for your specific services obligation (i.e. signing up for more years).

Green Living Show I have a question about my XBox 360. When I first bought it the green tab (Games) would show at start up, but?

Question by duke: I have a question about my XBox 360. When I first bought it the green tab (Games) would show at start up, but?
now the orange tab (XBox Live) shows at start up. My brother messed with it when I wasn’t there. How can I get it to show the green tab at start up?

Best answer:

Answer by Master Ted
Your brother must of put the setting in your profile to Enable Auto-Sign in, basically saying that when ever you turn your 360 on, it will automatically sign you into LIVE. So this is what you need to do. First turn on the 360 where you can see your dashboard. Then go to the section where you see your avatar just standing there minding his own business. Select the section and you’ll see a list of things like Avatart Marketplace, Custom Avartar, Profile, and ect. Then you’ll need to select “Profile” and then you’ll see another row of list and at very bottom of the list you’ll see “Auto-Sign in” which you have to Disable.

Energy Efficient Homes Q&A: Are there any resources available for energy efficient home building, such as grants?

Question by Honey pot: Are there any resources available for energy efficient home building, such as grants?
We’re wanting to build, and don’t know where to start as far as financing. We have our own land, and would like to know where to go for financing, and would also like to know if there are grants or anything available for building an energy efficient home.

Best answer:

Answer by Landlord
There are no grants, you still have to pay for your own house, but if you get it certified after you are done there are some tax breaks.

Any bank will finance you, you simply need a construction loan. They will require a 25% down payment on total costs from you.

Green Living Tips What are some good green living tips?

Question by D.J: What are some good green living tips?
also what should i do to improve planet earth?

Best answer:

Answer by SimplyMe
Start small. You can make small changes in your daily life that can you make a huge impact. Recycle every little thing you possibly can, and buy recycled items whenever possible. If you drive, limit your driving as much as possible. When you have to drive, drive very smoothly (not only is it better for your car, but helps the environment!). Buy organic and plant-based products whenever possible. They make organic sheets, makeup, rugs, towels… almost everything. Don’t waste enery on items that are plugged into your wall but not currently in use (for example, you leave a cell phone charger in the wall all day, but only use it at night. take it out during the day!). Buy smart-strips if possible. They automatically turn off those phantom objects.

Green Living Solutions Raccoons and skunks constantly tear up my garden. Are there any non-chemical solutions that work well?

Question by bogeymaker: Raccoons and skunks constantly tear up my garden. Are there any non-chemical solutions that work well?
My garden consists of nice shrubs and moss in-between large stones. The critters seems to like to dig up the moss in search of grubs. I’ve tried chemicals to kill the grubs, but they dig us up nonetheless. I have a trap and catch them and have animial control relocated them, but we live somewhat close to the mountains outside of Los Angeles and there is a steady stream of racoons, skunks and possum.

Has anyone had good luck with fox urine? I’ve tried it and can’t say that it worked well. We’ve also tried cayenne pepper applications, which work for a few days until the sprkinlers soak the garden and the pepper is washed away. Plus, the pepper turns the green moss red.

Thoughts?

Austin Green Living Q&A: "Why So Serious", over the Green Lantern?

Question by gandeman06: “Why So Serious”, over the Green Lantern?
In the DC Universe, most people think of Superman, Batman, Wonderwoman or even Flash as the more well-known heroes, but the Green Lantern has never been an overly popular character or the subject of so much debate until his recent popularity under the guise of John Stewart in the four awesome seasons of Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. So when it was announced that casting for the role would probably go in the direction of someone like rapper Common, or actor Roger R. Cross for the live action film, there was a sudden outpouring of anger and outrage, and now Brian Austin Green is favored to take on the role. I know that Hal Jordan has more history than John Stewart as Green Lantern, but let’s face it JS was just a cooler, more, bada$ $ GL than the ever-emotionally turmoiled HJ. And when you think about it, John Stewart has been in the Green Lantern core for almost just as long as Hal Jordan, (37 years). So my question is why so angry with GL as John Stewart? And no Hal did not give John his green lantern ring, Abin Sur did.

Best answer:

Answer by thanos of titan
abin sur died after giving the ring to hal.
the gaurdians gave the ring to stewart.

Green Living Guide Guide for what fruits and vegetables are in season when?

Question by StardustMemrees: Guide for what fruits and vegetables are in season when?
When I lived in California, I always visited the weekly Farmer’s Markets because they always had the freshest and best fruits and vegetables that were in season.

Is there any sort of a guide, either online at a website somewhere or in a book, as to finding out what fruits and vegetables are ripe and in season during what months?

I now live in Colorado and the Farmers Markets are far and few between and I do not have a green thumb, nor do I ever really know what fresh fruits and vegetables are in season.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I’m creating a green roof and want to make sure I have all the materials can you help me out? Is it true that all I need are: plants, soil, soil filter fabric, a drain mat, a waterproof membrane, and a sub membrane? If not, then what else do I need? I already know that my roof can sustain it, through winter and so on. All I need to know are the materials I need. I already have my list of plants together. Thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by imadriana
The most important question you have to answer is, “Can this structure support the extra weight?

If so, the article on Wikipedia may help you. There are several books listed on this subject. Also, after reading the article, you may decide not to do it because of various factors.

Here’s the link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_roof#Examples_of_green_roofs

If you still want to go ahead with this project, there is a website that has videos and blog of construction, plus a list of books you should have. Here’s the link:

Energy Efficient Homes Who to contact about a free service for a more energy efficient home?

Question by Angela C: Who to contact about a free service for a more energy efficient home?
My grandmother had someone come out to make her home more energy efficient. They caulked and sealed her doors and windows and gave her energy efficient light bulbs, but she doesn’t remember who did it. It was a FREE service. I would like to have them check out my house but I don’t know who to contact. Any ideas??

Best answer:

Answer by whsgreenmom
There are a variety of organizations that provide these types of services. I would start with her utility company to see if they offer audits and repairs then I would look at charities like habitat for humanity or church organizations. Many of these services are limited to low/fixed income or senior citizens.

Best answer:

Answer by Viv
it isn’t the idea of using green products, they use “green” to symbolize nature such as the tree’s green leaves.

a product doesn’t need to be green in color in order to be “green” and protect the environment.

Austin Green Living Mr.Kennedy got pranked called on the Tom Green Show.?

Question by Carlito is Cool: Mr.Kennedy got pranked called on the Tom Green Show.?
Date Added: July 25, 2007
Story By: Marc Middleton
- Jerrod sent the following: I just got finished watching Kennedy on Tom Green Live. There was a bunch of senseless, rude prank calls with people making tasteless comments on Benoit and just wrestling in general. Kennedy held his composure and came off pretty good despite the bullcrap going on. He talked about how cool it was wrestling Undertaker and said he first tried to get into WWE for 5 years before they started talking to him. Tom Green’s website should post video of it in the next two weeks. The number of prank calls and rude calls was bad, it was way different then when Austin appeared on the show to promote The Condemned.

Youre thoughts?
