Meet the LanzaTech process to capture carbon and convert it to a fuel!
As the Linkedin group founder I have decided to extend this group outside just the Linkedin walls and gain us more exposure!
We are pushing 450 members now and have interest from meet-ups in the SF Bay area to take the group outside of virtual to the real world. As a first step, I have just started a Tumblr blog site to help us share related articles, research, news and most important resources for us all to succeed!
It is an open blog and can accept your submissions onto the site. I will be resubmitting top discussion thread links from this group to the blog. I will certainly respect your privacy at all costs, please follow it.
If you would like to directly submit to the blog here is the address:
**If anyone has an interest in helping me customize the site with CSS or other html please contact me.**
Thanks for reading and all that you do every day!

Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Miami, Nashville, and San Francisco join cities in 62 countries turning off lights in largest climate event in history.
December 10, 2009, World Wildlife Fund officially kicked off Earth Hour 2009 announcing that Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, and San Francisco would lead the list of U.S. cities committing to go dark for one hour on March 28, 2009 at 8:30 p.m., uniting with tens of millions of citizens, businesses and government officials from all corners of the world in a call for global action on climate change.
From Amman to Warsaw, the skylines of 74 cities in 62 countries will go dark for one hour as individuals, businesses, government buildings, schools and major landmarks turn off non-essential lighting in what will be the largest climate event in history. The list of participating cities includes Auckland, Cape Town, Copenhagen, Dubai, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur, Lisbon, London, Manila, Mexico City, Moscow, Oslo, Rome, Singapore, Sydney, Tel Aviv and Toronto, with more expected to sign on in the weeks ahead
“As lights go out in cities around the U.S. and the world on March 28th, Earth Hour will provide world leaders with an unmistakable mandate to negotiate a new international climate change agreement,” said WWF President and CEO Carter Roberts. “The climate crisis threatens the ability of our planet to support its inhabitants, and it has never been more urgent that the voice of the people be heard on this issue. Earth Hour not only focuses global attention on the need to find solutions to climate change, but demonstrates the power that each of us has to make a difference in the future of our planet.”
WWF is working closely with its flagship city mayors and top local officials to ensure the impact of Earth Hour 2009 goes far beyond the initial 60 minutes of awareness, contributing to substantial, long-term action against climate change.
