25 Simple Ways to Save Money as a Dog Owner 29.10.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
This post first appeared on Brokelyn.com I love Amos, my Yorkiepoodle, oodles and oodles. But I've never known him to be able to hold down a job. Sure he is cuddly (sometimes), lets me know when someone is at the door and provides good Instagram fodder. But ours is largely a parasitic relationship, as dog poop sucks as a form of currency. Fortunately, poverty isn't so bad when you have a roommate to lick your tears. I work as a dog trainer at the School for the Dogs and am surrounded by a lot of nerdy dog types, all of whom don't skimp when it comes to their doggie pals. But that doesn't mean we spend a bundle. There are many, many things you can do to be a great dog owner without going broke. Here are some tips my scrappy dog-professional pals and I have come up with over the years. GEAR • Stop the poop bag habit. There are a few ways to do this. Sure, you can start saving your grocery bags; if you have a small dog with modest poops, you can cut up the bags to get more uses out of them. If you have a ...

5 Ideas for Protecting New York From The Next Sandy (Some Of Which Are A Little Nuts) 29.10.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
It’s been two years since Superstorm Sandy, and much of New York City is still vulnerable to flooding from storm surges. And as global sea levels continue to rise, that flooding risk will only increase. While Sandy caused around $19 billion in damages and economic losses in New York City, the same storm would cost the city $90 billion in 2050 , according to a recent analysis by the city government. According to city risk assessments, 400,000 people already live in an area that has a 1 percent chance of flooding in any given year. There are a number of proposed solutions for this ever-worsening problem, ranging from the practical to the whimsical. The Huffington Post took a look at some of the proposed solutions (including some conceived even before Sandy brought attention to the issue), as well as the official recommendations of the New York City Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency, a Bloomberg administration effort to build a more resilient city post-Sandy . While some of these ideas may ...

Ana Baptista: "Children of Color Are the Most At-Risk Victims of Pollution" 29.10.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Ana Baptista is on a mission to drive change. With a Masters from Brown University in Environmental Studies, a PhD in Urban Planning and Public Policy, and a teaching post at the New School for Public Engagement, she is well-equipped to move the needle on the environmental issues facing marginalized groups in American urban settings. She brings a passion to her work, and the knowledge of how living in a specific locale can impact health. Growing up in Newark in the " Ironbound " district was a first-hand education for Baptista. "Bounded on three sides" by rail lines, its history includes not just manufacturing, but extensive industrial dumping as well. The eastern edge of Newark experienced ongoing disposal of by-products into their waterways from the 1950s through the 1970s. Predominate was the manufacturing of Agent Orange --used to deforest land in Vietnam during the war. The EPA has noted that a majority of the toxins in the river came from the Diamond Alkali/ Diamond Shamrock Chemicals Corp. plant ...

BP: Tone Deaf to the End 29.10.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Last week Geoff Morrell, a senior executive at BP, wrote an opinion piece for Politico , which perpetuated the continuous tone deafness exhibited by the global oil giant since their Macondo well blew out on April 20, 2010, instantly killing 11 men, injuring many other crew members, and, lest we forget, flowing uncontrolled an estimated 5 million barrels of oil and untold natural gas over a period of 87 days. During that 87-day period, BP managed to avoid capturing (and measuring) the total flow from the well, even though they had vessels and equipment on site to do so. Who knows why; we do know this, though - environmental fines are based on volume of oil spilled. BP has argued that, since total flow rate was never measured we have no way of calculating the volume. To this day the company disputes the US government's estimate of 4.2 million barrels spilled into the Gulf, arguing that it was half that. Obfuscating the volume is especially critical to BP today since federal judge Carl Barbier ruled in ...
