Carnival of the Green #148

We’re so glad you could attend
Come inside! Come inside!

– Emerson, Lake and Palmer, “Karn Evil 9 – 1st Impression, Part 2″

Welcome back to the Carnival of the Green, the weekly showcase of all things good and green around the blogosphere!  And welcome back to sustainablog, carnival-goers: this is our third time hosting the CoG! We’ve got a wide variety of green bloggy goodness to share with you this week.

Before we begin, we’ve got many thanks to extend: to TriplePundit and (the now defunct, but never forgotten) CityHippy for starting this party, to Treehugger for keeping it going, and to last week’s host Confessions of a Closet Environmentalist for serving as stop #147. When you’re ready to scratch that CoG itch next week, head over to Thoughts on Global Warming.

OK, now that the formalities are out of the way, let’s get this party started!  And, in what’s now a tradition for sustainablog and CoG, here’s a little music to put you in the mood

Had enough?  Of course not!  Visit the Midway for a variety of green delights!

Wow! What a carnival this week!  Many thanks to all the contributors above. I chose this date just over a year ago because (drumroll, please!) today is my fortieth birthday.  I couldn’t think of any group I’d rather spend the day with then the many bloggers out there keeping it green…

See you next week at Thoughts on Global Warming.

    What a great carnival. Thanks, Jeff! I especially enjoyed the blog by Veggie Revolution on Palin’s Dizzy Science. Just in time for the Halloween season, it was a truly scary read.

    Best,

    Sarah

    Thanks for hosting the carnival. Also, the only other place I’ve heard that “Welcome back my friends” quote is from my dad singing it. I’m not too surprised it’s from some weird ’70s rock album.
