Here’s a welcome breath of fresh air in a world struggling with polluting old technologies. CleanTechnica is a beautiful news site covering the latest trends in clean technology. The emphasis, not surprisingly, is on renewable energy sources, less toxic electronics, and more efficient information technology. Headline articles at press time included “Solar Power from Balloons,” “Nanoflowers Could Lead to Superior Batteries,” “Sunflowers: A Fuel of the Future?” and “San Antonio Generating Gas from Sewage.” Articles appear about twice a day and are superbly written. There is a LOT of content to be had here. Information is sorted into about 20 categories. Best of all, most of the articles have a positive angle, so you actually feel good reading them. When was the last time that happened to you?
