I was daydreaming at work the other day (as I’m want to do from time to time) when I started thinking about James Bond. Not in any weird way, mind you (minus the general weirdness of a grown man thinking about James Bond in the middle of the day while, ostensibly, hard at work) (I wasn’t). No, I was thinking about James Bond’s penchant for gadgets, and the environmental part of my mind began to wonder what it would be like if James Bond went green. Would he still have those wonderful gadgets? Or would his desire to leave a smaller carbon footprint on the planet he’s been saving from cat loving super-villains for since the early 1960’s curb his gadgetry excess for good?
As with most things in life, the internet provided me with my answer.

Mother’s Day is nearly upon us, blog world. For most of us, that means last minute shopping for flowers, cards, chocolates, wine, or whatever gift you (and I’m speaking to primarily the male audience out there) think constitutes an acceptable gift for a woman. And not just any woman, either – the woman. The most important woman you’ll ever know – at least until you get married and your allegiances shift, whether you want them to or not.

Environment Canada says that this April has been the warmest Toronto has ever seen in at least 150 years. (That’s when they started recording this kind of thing). The average temperature has been 11.3 degrees celcius – a number that crushes the normal average of only 7.6 degrees celcius. While this has been great news for Toronto patio goers, environmental experts remain worried, and offer a grim explanation for the sudden rise in temperatures.
It’s not global warming – not this time. They theorize that the sun is moving closer.

As we all know, driving your car around the city is not only hazardous to the environment, but do to poor drivers and road conditions, can also be hazardous to your safety – and that’s not even counting the levels of stress and frustration that seem to come with it. But people love their cars, I guess.

I’ll be honest. I don’t really know a lot about the Insane Clown Posse. I’d heard of them, sure, and was aware that they were some kind of rap group, who were known for their wacky stage shows and wackier makeup and outfits. Also, they’re totally hardcore.

After an unfortunate two week-ish hiatus, (I won’t bore you with the details surrounding it) I have returned to you, dear readers – bigger, blacker, and more environmentally aware than ever.
On that note, we awkwardly segue into today’s post – looking at some of the “greener” superheroes out there (environmentally green, not Hulk green) and how their unique and individual powers can be viewed as not only extremely useful in times of meta-human inspired mayhem, but also eco-friendly.
