al gore, climate change, and recycling urban so-called waste

Two items today struck me as particularly noteworthy.  First off, treehugger has a great post on a couple of Al Gore videos, talking about making An Inconvenient Truth, and how to effectively get a message on climate change out and about in the public’s eye.

Oh, I hear Leonardo DiCaprio was on Oprah this week, and he talked about climate change as well.  If you’re interested in his short online films on the topic, you can find those at  leonardodicaprio.org.

The second item of interest to me is an article about a house made using materials leftover from Boston’s Big Dig.  The recently completed 4,300-square-foot home in Lexington, Massachusetts incorporates 600,000 pounds of recycled materials.
