>A new report out by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency found that the rate of carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere slowed by half in 2008. This was mostly due to a 1% decrease in fossil fuel consumption, which was attributed to the economic downturn. Increased use of renewables didn’t hurt, either. Finallly, in what can be considered the most surprising finding, developing countries contributed more than 50% of the world’s emissions.

Give Water a Brake!
Every time you step op the brake pedal when you're driving, copper in the form of brake dust is worn off the pads. This eventually winds up in the environment, contaminating our precious water resources. Copper pollution directly harms salmon and other sea creatures.
California and Washington have already passed legislation that will eventually remove all copper from brake pads. The Earthgarage team has created the "Give Water a Brake!" petition. Our goal is to pressure elected officials in the rest of the U.S. and Canada to pass legislation to phase out copper in brake pads.
