-- Positive Eco-News --


I read in a Japan For Sustainability Newsletter (japanfs.org) that the Nihon Kotsu Co. - one of the top taxi services in Tokyo, experimented with electric powered vehicles in their fleet this year, in cooperation with Better Place (betterplace.com). This project allowed drivers to replace the rechargable batteries in "about one minute", reducing wasted time (such as at gas stations). The trial project allowed the industry to test out the logistics of changing over to electric power and the financial impact of switching over the entire fleet.

This exciting test project may just influence the world's leading taxi services to switch over to electric powered vehicles in their fleet. Imagine the impact that this could have when just one large city (like Tokyo) hosts 50,000 taxi vehicles or more. 


-- Conscious Discussions Radio --


Today's featured guest on the Conscious Discussions Talk Radio show is Master Scuba Diver Trainer, and Founder of the Reef Rescue Foundation (ReefRescueFoundation.com)  - Dirk Beckman. Dirk currently holds the position of Executive Project Director in that foundation, as such he'll be able to share information about the work they do. He also has over 25 years experience in the field of Environmental Technology... So we have a lot to discuss today from the preservation of existing reefs and creating artificial ones, to cleaning water-ways. To access today's live show (airs at 10-11 AM, Pacific) click on the show title:Reef Rescue Foundation
