Chemically Green: A Year in Review


As 2008 comes to an end, Chemically Green would like to thank everyone who has helped this blog grow and become an influential green blog.

Here are some of our favorite posts from this year, followed by some major goals being set for CG to meet in 2009.


Our Top Kudzu Posts

  • Kudzu Plant Start up in Tennessee (#1 Post 2008)
  • Approval Rating for Kudzu Ethanol Soars
  • Live Video Interview, Doug Mizell, maker of Kudzunol, Ethanol from Kudzu (featured on TreeHugger)
  • I’m Dreaming of a Green Christmas, (Doug Mizell interview, NBC News with Brian Williams)
  • The Inconvenient Truth about Ethanol.

    Goals for 2009

    As a start up blog in 2008, Chemically Green is working to reach even higher goals in 2009. Some of these goals are:

    1 – Get up to 1,000 RSS readers.  We’ve weaved in and out of the 100 zone, and I think we can reach 1,000 next year with your help.  Subscribe today if you haven’t already.

    2 – New writers. We’re planning on bringing in some new writers this year.  If you are passionate about Chemically Green, you can write for us too.

    3 – Social Media. We have really been branching out in social media and already have a Twitter presence, well as a Facebook fan page and YouTube account.  If you haven’t already, check us out!

    4 – Advertising. It will be subtle and not overpowering.  If you’re interested in advertising with us, we’d like to bring on a few more partners.

    5 – Store. In the upcoming months, we’ll be rolling out some great gear for those that want to be Chemically Green.  Stay tuned.

    Happy new year, and see you next year!

      I added your url to MyPage at Green Life Cafe at Ning and talk about your blog there at the cafe. Come join us.

      I wonder if you would consider a post on algae for fuel. I bemoaned the destruction of such a huge amount of algae in China when they were preparing for the Olympics. But it will grow back.

      Will Legionnaire’s Disease and others be an issue for open-air grown algae in stagnant waters if a farmer doesn’t know what he is doing? Mosquitoes, etc. are another problem. Any algae farmers out there?

      @Valerie Coskrey: Thanks for your comments. Algae research is going on all over the world to produce a viable biodiesel product. CG will take a look at the current status of algae for biodiesel and will let you know.
      Check out this post from CG that mentions algae being used in a biodiesel blend for testing in commercial jet liner:

      I can’t answer your question about Legionnaire’s disease in open-air-grown algae in stagnant waters.
      Legionnaires’ disease is a form of pneumonia that is caused by the Legionella bacteria. This bacteria was first identified in 1976 after an unusual outbreak of respiratory illness among people attending an American Legion convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. However, it is believed that this bacteria existed, but was unidentified, since 1947.

      The algae in China was a big bloom that usually ends up destroying aquatic life if left unchecked. Have you heard of the “dead zone” in the Gulf of Mexico, algae feeding off of the fertilizer from crops grown in the mid-west?
