If you’ve been following the blog for awhile now, you’ll know that I’m all over alternative energy sources. I’d love to have a wind turbine for my house. Well the good people of Rock Port, Missouri have taken up the wind power challenge and gone 100% wind energy! The press release says they use 13 million kilowatts a hear and their fancy new wind turbines put out 16 million. Here’s hoping I can get my own turbine sometime so I don’t have to feel guilty about having four computers running in my house!
What better way to learn about conservation efforts to save Africa’s few remaining mountain gorillas than playing a mobile game! Silverbackers, a free game that can be downloaded and played on any Java-capable phone with a mobile web access / data plan, lets you help save mountain gorillas as you play through its 8 levels. Silverbackers is for ages 8 and up, and I think it’s great idea to combine gaming with learning about how we can be more responsible in helping conserve our planet’s wildlife and resources.
