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.

They have tried everything to fix the oil spill. Garbage. Giant containment units. Golf balls. They even (briefly, I hope) considered nuking it.
There was one solution they hadn’t considered, though. Until now.

LED lightbulbs are brighter, last longer, and are more environmentally responsible then your regular, run-of-the-mill lightbulb. This we know, and one thing more – they’re also wicked expensive.

Well, I think this easily falls into the realm of “things I thought already existed because they seemed so ridiculously obvious to me, that why the hell wouldn’t they already exist?”
USA Solar and Digital Communications Technologies LLC has created, apparently, the world’s first solar charger for laptops. That’s right – you can now plug this bad boy into your computer, and simply keep it charged and ready by sitting outside under the sun.

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.

Many people might not know this about me, but environmental and energy issues are something of an interest of mine, so that’s what we’ll be discussing today!
For as long as mankind has had power, we seem to be trying to develop new and interesting ideas to create it.
