If I say Mars, what do you think of then? No, the planet Mars is the wrong answer. The correct answer is Magenn’s Power Turbine MARS.
MARS is a new simple solution to produce wind energy, anywhere. According to Magenn their MARS has all advantages over current existing wind turbines.
But how does it work and why is it better than ordinary wind turbines?
Here is a rather old, but good, documentary about Greenpeace’s famous Rainbow Warrior.

The 30 December 2007 the 82 year old Bert Bolin, a Swedish meteorologist who served as the first chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), passed away.
He was one of the people who played a key roll in the launch of UNs Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He served as its chairman during 1988 to 1998.
Many people believe he was the single most important person when it comes to our understanding and knowledge about the climate, even more important than Al Gore.
In our latest web poll here on Green Blog we asked if you thought the Bali Climate Conference would be a success. Here are the results:
A majority of the people said yes. They thought that the climate conference would be a success but that the result probably wouldn’t be enough.
Around 25% of you thought that the conference would be a failure. But on the same time you wished it would turn out to be a success.
13% hadn’t really any idea how the outcome would be. And just as many thought that world leaders would fail once again making the climate conference a total failure.
None of you thought that world leaders would come together and “do the right thing”.

In December last year Italy decided to join Australia and Ireland to ban incandescent light bulbs. The Italian budget committee voted in favour of an incandescent light bulb ban from the Green MP Angello Bonelli. The ban will take place in 2011.
More European countries are planning on following Irelands and Italy’s “bright” decision in a, very, near future.
The European Lamp Companies Federation plans for a incandescent light bulb phase out by year 2019. This just shows that government guidelines and actions do make more difference than what the private sector could accomplish.
