ashton stark fearless raw organic chocolate
The web is awash with news about Ashton Stark (Stark Industries?), the teen who transformed a 1972 Volkswagen Beetle into a fully functional electric vehicle. Powered by nine golf cart batteries, this rejuvenated automobile can travel about 50 miles on a full charge at a top speed of 45 miles per hour. Thats impressive. Oh, did we mention the kiddo is only 14 years old?

This guy deserves a chocolate bar!

F_ManyBars_Sm
This is exciting! After almost 2 yeasrs of nearly insurmountable challenges, we have finally launched our expanded production. At the end of last month we completed our first major chocolate production yielding more than 25,000 of the most delicious Fearless Chocolate Bars that we’ve ever crafted.

Im extremely proud of these bars. From the unique brazilian source of our cacao and sweetner to our 5 delectable flavors to our exquisite packaging.

These bars will be shipping all over the country starting with our customers on the west coast and heading east. As stores shelve our bars we will be posting on this blog. For now all Southern California customers can find Fearless Chocolate at Whole Foods Markets. San Francisco customers can find us at Canyon Market.

Stay tuned for more!

twinkie
The Good.is posts another great food article documenting photographer Dwight Eschliman’s work “37 or so Ingredients” which portraits the myriad food-like ingredients used to create the poster-child of nuclear foods: The Twinkie (btw, happy 80th Twinkie! Yuk).

Check out all the wonderfully antisceptic pictures here.

plant a fish
Cousteau! Yep, that’s right, grandson of the famed ocean explorer Jaques Cousteau started a non profit aimed at “re-plant” key fish popluations around the world’s oceans. Its called PLANT A FISH, which is just a tad rad.

Launched last week, the first project aims to rehabilitate the oyster population in New York’s Hudson river. Partnered with the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School, a Bushwick, Brooklyn public school, Cousteau led the students on a dive in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn to plant 130,000 oysters.

In the theater of life sometimes only the most dramatic actions inspire. Those who follow Fearless will likely detect our creative activist background and propensity for loving brazen enviro-political theatrics from other heroes like The YES MEN

From the Guardian:

Nine climate activists from Plane Stupid are expected to go on trial today after staging a protest which disrupted flights at Aberdeen airport last year. The nine protesters have been charged with breach of the peace and vandalism after they allegedly occupied part of the tarmac and a terminal building at the airport before dawn in March 2009. The action led to disruption for 10 of the 350 scheduled flights at Aberdeen, a busy regional airport which specialises in European flights servicing the city’s oil and tourism industries and providing “life line” services to outlying Scottish islands.

The trial, before a sheriff and jury, is expected to last two to four weeks. The nine protesters are expected to plead not guilty, arguing they were attempting to prevent the wider and more serious damage to the environment threatened by climate change.

Plane Stupid has a nice website explaining the context of their actions and what they hope to inspire:

The group intend to take the battle for climate justice from the court of public opinion to the court of law in Scotland. They plan to highlight the social and environmental impacts of expanding the airport which they argue will mainly benefit a proposed luxury hotel and golf complex owned by business tycoon Donald Trump.

The defendants are pleading not guilty on the grounds that their actions were to prevent the larger crime of runaway climate change and have assembled a witness list of world-renowned experts in climate related fields including public health consultant Jenny Griffiths and Geoff Meaden, who contributed to the successful Kingsnorth 6 defence as a flooding and mapping expert.

Wishing these nine individuals the best in their trial today.

trash water

I came across this clever exhibit at the California Academy of Sciences in SF last week. What an effective demonstration! The concept immediately personalizes water pollution. Simple, effective.

Here’s TreeHugger‘s take:

Visitors who come across the “Plastic Century” art installation while searching for a sip of water at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco tomorrow may find their options less than appealing: Drink from a trash-filled water cooler or go thirsty.

In a piece commissioned by the academy to mark World Oceans Day (and the 100th birthday of iconic marine scientist and explorer Jacques Cousteau), artist Sarah Kornfeld, marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols, and futurists Stuart Candy and Jake Dunagan set out to show what a century of plastic has done to our environment — and specifically the world’s seas.

6 Billion Tons of Plastic
The team set up four functioning water coolers, labeled 1910, 1960, 2010, and 2030.,each filled with different amounts of plastic garbage — old toothbrushes, film, candy wrappers, drinking straws — according to how much of the material existed (or is projected to exist) on the planet during that time period in an effort to stir up strong emotions about what might otherwise be abstract facts and figures.

“This is something that people can look at and feel on a visceral level,” Kornfeld told Fast Company.

The numbers themselves, though, are staggering. According to the Plastic Century website, 60 million tons of plastic had been produced globally in 1910, a few years after the material was introduced. Today, the cumulative total is 6 billion tons, a number that is expected to more than double by 2030. The project, its creators say, aims “to make visible a phenomenon so widespread that it has become virtually invisible.”
