Happy New Year 2008!

Google Maps ecology-minded directions

Swim!

Today I wanted to check the distance between my hometown Aachen in Germany and New York. So, I decided to get the directions from Google Maps and guess, what Google told me…

When I arrive Le Havre in France, Google told me to swim(!) across the Atlantic Ocean…

Drive time? Well, the whole trip of 6,437 km will take about 29 days 9 hours.

No standby

The UN climate panel announced global warming is a fact and it is manmade. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned that global temperatures will probably rise up to four degrees C° by the end of the century. They also predicted a rising sea level and more droughts, heatwaves, rains and floods.

To get back to the point, that global warming is caused by humans. Everybody is asked to do, what everybody already knows: Saving power.

Just another blog

So, here I am. My name is Silke van Exel and I´m starting to create my first web blog ever. These are my first steps into the blog world. My first thougt was, how do I get started? Which content, language, design and blog software should I choose? Quite a lot to think about for a newbie like me, but it´s fun, so far. Well, my very first journal is done now.
