A Florida craft beer company called Saltwater Brewery teamed up with engineers and scientists to create an alternative for plastic to hold their beer cans together. It works just like those plastic rings that hold a six pack together but it's made from the by products of beer making.

A smoke stack dealer in Wisconsin had this to say about "rolling coal:"

"I run into a lot of people that really don't like Obama at all. If he's into the environment, if he's into this or that, we're not. I hear a lot of that. To get a single stack on my truck — that's my way of giving them the finger. You want clean air and a tiny carbon footprint? Well, screw you."

"We at Shell want everyone to feel as "pumped" as we do about freeing much-needed Arctic resources. After all, the Arctic is the common heritage of all humanity, and what we do there matters to everyone. That's why Shell is inviting you to create your very own Let's Go! ad for our Arctic campaign. We'll feature it on our website, and you can show all your Facebook friends how pumped you are to seize the day's opportunities too. The best submissions will win exciting prizes—including an all-expenses-paid trip to see the Kulluk in action!"

-- Taken from Shell's 'Arctic Ready' Campaign website

Now you can show all your Facebook friends how pumped you are to ruin the environment seize the day's opportunities too!

UPDATE: Sadly, it's a fake website. Too bad too! It was such a promising trolling opportunity. Oh well. However, the fact that Shell is beginning to drill in the Arctic is still very real. So much so that Greenpeace decided to deploy two submarines to keep tabs on Shell's drilling operations just to make sure they don't try to pull a fast one on us.
