5 money-saving ways to be an environmentalist

I’ve used the impassioned scare tactic in my climate crisis epiphany post, but most people just want to know if environmentalism will save them money. Conservation isn’t a new idea and it’s getting harder and harder to be a skeptic about the damage we’re doing to Earth these days. If you’re not convinced, there are still hundreds of ways to save money (and save the environment at the same time). Here are five (after the jump).

Lala Music Mover uploads your whole collection

As sure as the wind blows, an online music service that you use today will likely be gone (or have very limited functionality) in six months. Fortunately, most of the options I mentioned in my finding music online post from June are still viable, but I’ve found two great new sites (Lala and Grooveshark) to replace the big one that seems to have died (imeem – yeah, MySpace bought it). Of particular interest is the Lala Music Mover software which uploads your computer’s whole music collection so you can play it on their site. Main interface screen shot:

Cornell revisits Reznor’s Exotic Birds

I love the 90s. For those following the Trent Reznor vs. Chris Cornell feud/cat fight, Cornell tweeted a quick followup this morning to what seemed like a coup de grâce from Reznor on April Fools’:

Now I am sad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJYBx5NJULY

After yesterday’s prank, I began to suspect that this was all a hoax. I can’t imagine that Trent Reznor would be so disgusted with a cotaneous musician’s latest work. Cornell also replied to a fan this morning with:

@ldoz NO , I like him just fine. I think he is brilliant. also not a personal issue. I have never fallen victim to the media spun cat fight

I may edit this post with the full history of the feud ASAP. Maybe the research will reveal clues to Reznor’s true feelings about Scream.
