Ideas for Green Team Initiatives: Recycling: Have a campaign to get all church members to recycle. 1) Provide recycling bins and a list of things the local trash pick-up will accept. 2) Have a glass collection once a month. Many cities won’t pick up glass in the recycling bins, so it requires gas and effort to drive to the recycling centers that accept glass. To make it convenient for folks and to save energy, get a couple of volunteers with a pick-up truck or van who are willing to collect the glass and take it to the recycling center the next day. 3) Make sure the church has recycling bins at various places in the church, es pecially the office area and the social hall where food is served.

Just got done hanging 3 shelves built out of scraps(okay they were nice scraps). Earlier I built a table for the TV room out of scraps(3rd time was the charm). Wish I came up with the idea but I've seen too many people make interesting one-of-a-kinds in similar fashion. Little to lose and much to gain in trying. This comes from a professional procrastinator. Take care.

Good news from Los Angeles: EPA Approves California’s Plan To Impose Strict Emissions Regulations The EPA decision Tuesday to granted California a formal waiver clears the way for the state to implement a 2004 state pollution law to combat global warming. The Bush administration repeatedly rejected the waiver request, which was required by the federal Clean Air Act.

Otep, we'd love to do an iPhone app. We're planning on it. What 3-4 Rally things do folks want to do while mobile?
OTEP over 5 years ago
I know it's been addressed, but we really need a Carbonrally iPhone App -- here's one that helps you stay green on the go: 3rdwhale iphone app Looking for an organic diner within biking distance that has a three-star green rating? There’s a app for that. It’s called 3rd Whale, and you can download it for free. (Except that the star rating is actually a whale rating.) Complete with Facebook Connect, this iPhone app locates green products and businesses in 30 major North American cities. It uses the iPhone’s dial function to select a category (food), sub-category (restaurants), and distance (walking, biking, or driving). In Santa Monica, this might give you Swingers Diner for its selection of veggie and vegan fare. You could then get directions from your current location using the iPhone’s built-in Google (Google reviews) map, rate your experience on the three-whale scale, and write up a quick review. 3rd Whale recently released a new feature that integrates green-living tips, which can show how much energy or waste you’ll save by taking a given action.

Let's just say I was a big fan of the movie Fern Gully. Plants and tress give us oxygen. Without oxygen we would all die. Respect mother nature for she is the only mother that will always respect you back unconditionally. Plus with the proven saying "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned", I think we all know what mother nature is capable of.

CHICAGO, IL – VICTORY RECORDS has signed Los Angeles recording artist OTEP. OTEP's all encompassing musical approach coupled with her shaman like artistic qualities and other creative musings have lead to over half a million albums sold over the course of three studio albums. Singer, songwriter, renegade Otep Shamaya describes the band’s music as …”a total and complete mutiny on the senses. We are a fusion band by nature, inspired by many styles and tones from a variety of musical genres- rock, punk, metal, hip-hop, spoken word, jazz and classic rock. We never allow the antiquated limits of a genre confine or restrict us. Our music is universal and does not belong nor can it be contained in a nice, neat, little box.” “Smash The Control Machine” in stores August 18th, 2009

No other world But this one: Willows and the river And the factory With its black smokestacks. No other shore, only this bank On which the living gather. No meaning but what we find here. No purpose but what we make. That, and the beloved's clear instructions: Turn me into song; sing me awake.

Replaced my bulbs. Bringing a lunch to work. I'm drinking from the tap and I even quit drinking coffee altogether so as to cut down on the styrofoam cups (the week of headaches behind my eyeballs was rough, but I feel great and even more energetic now). I'm a vegetarian and I live within a mile from where I work---my car is racking up fewer miles. I feel very positive about the effect carbonrally has had on me.

I am reducing my carbon footprint by being a vegetarian. Factory farming (especially the rain forest-destroying slash-and-burn farming in Brazil) destroys the earth's natural carbon sinks and causes more global warming than cars. Becoming a vegetarian could really reduce your carbon footprint. If you can't/don't want to become a vegetarian might I recommend farmer's markets? Locally grown/raised food from sustainable farms don't harm the earth nearly as much as food that has to travel thousands of miles to get to your table.

"I agree about vegetarian retaurants. I think it would be nice for most restaurants to at least have some sort of vegetarian menu. I mean you can’t even hardly go out to a restaurant and order a salad without meat on it. I’ve gone out to a place where I live and they have gardenburgers listed on their menu and on more than one occasion they’ve had some excuse on why they don’t have them. It can be quite irritating to say the least." Totally!! I've been vegetarian over a year now, and whenever my family goes out to eat at resturaunts, I have 0 options pretty much. I hate salads. I mean more and more people these days stopping meat consumption, we need more options.

Being informed, being involved, in this age, in this climate - is not only a necessity but an ACT OF DEFIANCE. Yes, educate yourself on what matters most to your family, to your financial well being. I have researched and read up on all the policies set forth by the candidates and Senator Barack Obama's plan suits me and my family best. For you Ron Paul enthusiasts, I suggest voting for Bob Barr - Ron Paul endorsed him. He's a Libertarian (and former Republican) and is on most states ballots. I wish Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich would leave the Republican and Democratic parties and lend more power to alternative parties but it seems the funding & support they receive from the GOP and DNC is enough to keep them where they are instead of following the courage of their convictions. But indeed, plz -- be informed, be involved. VOTE.
melaniestair about 6 years ago
Hey Watchingtheworldburn! I totally agree with you! Why do we vote for who the media tells us to vote for? It's retarded. I myself also voted for Ron Paul and was disappointed that he is no longer in the running. I thought about writing him in but I didn't. Here in Washington where I live we all do absentee ballots so I've already voted but it wasn't for tweedle-dee or tweedle-dumb. I voted Chuck Baldwin from the constitutional party. I think sometimes that people think they need to take the constitution and try to twist it and make it fit into what they want. Well how about this America? How about we leave it alone and acutally go by what it says for once?!? Isn't that what this country is founded upon? Now I'll step off of my soap box. Keep up the great work everyone!!!
WatchingTheWorldBurn about 6 years ago
As an american citizen I am enraged to see people who go out and vote based on passion and feelings, or how good a candidate looks, or how well they speak. Lets not forget Hitler who was an EXCELLENT public speaker. It also saddens me to see people that believe the popular vote is what determines which president we get. All the popular vote does is serve as a barometer of public opinion for the electors in the electoral college. Whether or not they choose to follow that is totally up to them. Do you know who your states electors are? All the elections in which your vote actually matters have passed. Surprise! All the popular vote for the president does is make the plebeians feel special, and give electors an idea about what the public thinks they want. I voted in the primary for my fellow Texan Ron Paul. The only candidate that truly cares for the people of this country. So needless to say my vote didnt matter, and I will not be voting in this election. This will make 3 elections in a row that were rigged in one way or another. Most of my friends are doing the same thing. Why vote for a douche or a turd? Or as this election goes, a smooth talking sssnake, and a decrepit old zombie. If you really want to make a difference. Get everyone to vote 3rd party like I said before. If by some miracle a 3rd party candidate was elected it would prove that the system still works for us. And for posterity... If Obama wins, and actually turns this country around, stops the tyranny and brings about some kind of utopia... I will eat my riding boots and lick the bugs from my helmet and clean a public toilet with my head.

Hello Team!! I think we all are doing a great job kicking carbon out of our lives. I just wanted to let you in on something i heard today. I was going into one of my classes and there were two girls standing in the doorway talking about how they are not voting and how noone will miss their vote. As a U.S citizen i felt angry, and as a woman i felt even angrier. Voting isn't something everyone always had the option of doing. I wish people were more passionate about potential presidents that could make or further break our society. Anyone else have any stories of people they know who aren't voting?? I'd love to hear.

I wish I was seeing this cooling trend! Here in AZ it seems like it'll nver get below 80! I agree however. Climate change I think is a better term. Our tides are changing the jet stream is also changing. So who knows for sure? Either way our weather I feel is being caused by us. To WatchingTheWorldBurn have you read about Global Diming? I mentioned it to Birdman not too long ago. It's a theory that our sun is being blocked by the pollution which is causing our earth to stay cooler than it might be if there wasn't. You should look it up it might interest you. Good work all - oh yea and I agree on politics, they say whatever they need to become the apple of your eye then do a 360.
Desi about 6 years ago
To WatchingTheWorldBurn: im over here on the east coast of the world in NC, and each winter it used to snow. unfortunately now, it has not snowed around where i live in about maybe 4-6 yrs. but now at night time it is dropping to freezing temps a month and a half almost two months early. so the thought of a cooling trend mmigghhhtt not be that far-fetched, but i think we all will have to wait and see on that. To All of Team Otep: everyone here is great. im proud to be on such a strong team. i think the Earth needs alot of help to heal but however long it takes right!!!?? "The remedy is worse than the disease."
WatchingTheWorldBurn about 6 years ago
I'm glad that, at the least, this may have opened some of your eyes. Desi, We had our first freeze last night, I can't remember the last time our first freeze was before November. Too early to say if we are in a cooling trend, but this weather has definitely been unusual, and counter-intuitive to the idea of global warming. But the Earth is fickle... so who knows. I will say it once again, Your actions here are admirable. Your actions are going to do far more for the earth than the promise of any politician or tax, or government policy. Please dont base your votes this year over what a politician says they will do for the environment. Elections are all politics and lies. This is a proven fact of history. Base your votes off of prior voting records, and their history of action. It is important to understand that the things OTEP sings about in Confrontation, and Warpig... will not cease because of one of the left/right candidates being elected. The military industrial complex is not going to give up its dominance of the last decade very easily. And both candidates are dedicated the the war on terror. A war on terror means continued war for the rest of the foreseeable future. The only way the war on terror can be fought without war as we know it is a worldwide police state. An utter crackdown on every individual on the planet, complete surveilance, and domination by the elites. Please keep these things in mind before you listen to the rhetoric of our politicians, or let yourself get distracted from the real issues we face as a "free" society. Best wishes for all of you in this coming storm.

BORCULO, Netherlands - Set amid cornfields and cow pastures in eastern Holland is a shallow pool that is rapidly turning green with algae, harvested for animal feed, skin treatments, biodegradable plastics -- and with increasing interest, biofuel. In a warehouse 120 miles southwest, a bioreactor of clear plastic tubes is producing algae in pressure-cooker fashion that its manufacturer hopes will one day power jet aircraft. Experts say it will be years, maybe a decade, before this simplest of all plants can be efficiently processed for fuel. But when that day comes, it could go a long way toward easing the world's energy needs and responding to global warming.

Thank-you Otep for posting that video. It is terribly sad, but hopefully it will span and reach the people who still dont believe in global warming. I agree with you Gothyboi. There are a wide majority of people who say global warming is not accurate or is not in links to how man treats the Earth. Its time for a serious wake up call.
Gothyboi about 6 years ago
That video is so sad, but it's the truth, but not fully. As we are the ones killing them, by emitting carbon, destroying the rain forest, and industrializing their homes. It's been known for awhile that the current in Alaska has been moving up north further, which is killing off certain types of fish. That polar bears are dying because their foundation is simply melting away. It's just sad that people still think this is a myth. There is just so much evidence. Ignorance is only bliss when your oblivious to it, but being able to see the effect and to know the cause is just plain stupid. I am happy the Carbonrally team has made this site for the masses to indulge in knowledge of how to rid the excrement that pollutes our air and changes so much. Rock on Carbon rally, Otep, and all alike here and elsewhere who are working for a change! And just for fun as this is when hell freezes over: Has anyone seen the paris hilton compaign ad? Ha! Who would of thot Paris Hilton would have a better policy than all of our candidates (Heh though we all know she was reading cue cards) :-P Seriously though Obama For Change!

Miss Wynter over 6 years ago
I don't know if any of you remember the massive power outage in New York City several years ago. The power throughout most of the city had been cut off for about 24 hours, if my memory serves me correctly. I had just moved to Manhattan then and...well...it was chaos...but that's beside the point. But I remember hearing on the news that a study had been conducted (I'm sorry I can't cite this at the moment) where someone observed the earth's atmosphere directly above the city for those 24 or so hours. By the time the power in the city had been turned back on, the atmosphere had healed itself by a certain percentage (10 maybe?). I'm not sure of the number, but it was impressive. What I’m trying to say is that I believe the earth can heal itself rather quickly if we allow it to. Yes, a tremendous amount of damage has already been done. However, we are doing a great thing here! We are trying to prevent everything from getting worse than it already is. Every living creature has it rough right now but the polar bears are a great (and heart breaking) example of global warming. Many still believe that global warming is a myth. Well, look at the polar bears who thrive in a cold climate. Who live on ice...that (obvious from the photos and other information) is melting rapidly. What is next? Who knows. But, hopefully, together we can make the next chapter say something good.

Miss Wynter over 6 years ago
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP)—Polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea may be turning to cannibalism because longer seasons without ice keep them from getting to their natural food, a new study by American and Canadian scientists has found. The study reviewed three examples of polar bears preying on each other from January to April 2004 north of Alaska and western Canada, including the first-ever reported killing of a female in a den shortly after it gave birth. Polar bears feed primarily on ringed seals and use sea ice for feeding, mating and giving birth. Polar bears kill each other for population regulation, dominance, and reproductive advantage, the study said. Killing for food seems to be less common, said the study's principal author, Steven Amstrup of the U.S. Geological Survey Alaska Science Center. "During 24 years of research on polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea region of northern Alaska and 34 years in northwestern Canada, we have not seen other incidents of polar bears stalking, killing, and eating other polar bears,'' the scientists said. Environmentalists contend shrinking polar ice due to global warming may lead to the disappearance of polar bears before the end of the century. The Center for Biological Diversity of Joshua Tree, Calif., in February 2005 petitioned the federal government to list polar bears as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act. Cannibalism demonstrates the effect on bears, said Kassie Siegal, lead author of the petition. "It's very important new information,'' she said. "It shows in a really graphic way how severe the problem of global warming is for polar bears.'' Deborah Williams of Alaska Conservation Solutions, a group aimed at pursuing solutions for climate change, said the study represents the "bloody fingerprints'' of global warming. "This is not a Coca-Cola commercial,'' she said, referring to animated polar bears used in advertising for the soft drink giant. "This represents the brutal downside of global warming.'' The predation study was published in an online version of the journal Polar Biology on April 27. Amstrup said print publication will follow. Researchers in spring 2004 found more bears in the eastern portion of the Alaska Beaufort Sea to be in poorer condition than bears in areas to the west and north. Researchers discovered the first kill in January 2004. A male bear had pounced on a den, killed a female and dragged it 245 feet away, where it ate part of the carcass. Females are about half the size of males. In the face of the den's outer wall were deep impressions of where the predatory bear had pounded its forepaws to collapse the den roof, just as polar bears collapse the snow over ringed seal lairs,'' the paper said. "From the tracks, it appeared that the predatory bear broke through the roof of the den, held the female in place while inflicting multiple bites to the head and neck. When the den collapsed, two cubs were buried, and suffocated, in the snow rubble.'' In April 2004, while following bear footprints on sea ice near Herschel Island, Yukon Territory, scientists discovered the partially eaten carcass of an adult female. Footprints indicated it had been with a cub. The male did not follow the cub, indicating it had killed for food instead of breeding. A few days later, Canadian researchers found the remains of a yearling that had been stalked and killed by a predatory bear, the scientists said. -Article by Dan Joling (posted 12 June 2006)

Hey! I just joined (both the site and the group). I had no idea there was an Otep team and was pleasantly surprised when I found it. The fact that you are all currently in the number one position is even better!! Keep it up!!!! I am seriously impressed!!! :D
delirium696_12804 over 6 years ago
im glad otep encourages people to stand up and help with alot of things. having joined the legion and all shapes and sizes,as well as here and am a member of the otep chat i get to hear and see alot of useful things that help alot of people. also we live on this earth and we should try to protect it. It's always good to have someone to look up to, and i will always be glad that i had the pleasure of having a role model like otep ^_^ so keep it up

Congrats to everyone here for showing they care, I have no problem not doing certain things..like driving(I quit driving my car over a year ago)makes it a little hard as I have 4 children. My 8 year old is all for helping the Earth become healthier..my 12 year old is a Vegan, it is my 14 yr old I can't seem to change at all(I guess typical 14 yr old). Keep up the good work..I love Otep, she has been one of my favorite musicians for years..since I first saw her at a concert in N.M. She has a really good Soul and stands up against many unjust issues going on in our world today.

melaniestair over 6 years ago
here's my challenge idea. If you like it go and vote for it please :) what if we mowed our lawns less frequently? If we let our grass stay a little longer then we wouldn’t need to mow as often creating less emissions and when it is longer it doesn’t require as much water. It’s true I’ve tried it. And maybe if more people had an emissions free lawn mower (like the old school kind that you push with the spinning blades) it would make an even greater impact on reducing carbon. I have one and I got it at Home Depot for like a little over $80. It’s so cool!
emscarr_19128 over 6 years ago
Not sure if this idea has been used already or not, but encourage the useage of bpa free stainless steel water bottles, instead of buying bottled water.

come on, come all otep totally needs our help, on a different issue...the farked up country as some of you may be aware, they recently entered a contest to play at the democratic national convention, and in two short days made the top three just as the contest was ending. This is their chance! This is our chance!!!!!!!! lets apply what we've done here and blast them past the other two artists!this is the link to vote, spread it, forward it, spread the infection ECO NINJAS AND SHADOW SOLDIERS, NOW WE SHOW THEM WE ARE PATRIOTS!!!!!!!!!
jaclach_48458 over 6 years ago

OTEP over 6 years ago
I want to, again, thank all of you for hard work and dedication to such a worthy cause. Some believe that Global Warming or "Climate Change" is just a myth - oh what deluded lives they lead - but this isn't just about "global warming" or stopping the dreaded threat of MANBEARPIG! I live in Los Angeles where, lately, the air has been so thick with smog you can actually taste it. Imagine waking up, the day is beautiful - sun is bright, no clouds in the sky, oh, well, except for that giant yellow-ish brown haze hanging over the city - and yes, it smells like car exhaust and yes, it tastes like car exhaust. Noxious fumes spoil this plastic paradise. For me, this is also about reducing fossil fuel emissions and other air pollutants so that someday, I don't wake up choking on the air and can actually see a BLUE sky instead of a yellow/blue sky. Great work everyone. Keep up the fight. We are doing some GOOD!!! OTEP

So here's a challenge idea that I posted last month called "The grass IS greener" Please vote for it if you like it. what if we mowed our lawns less frequently? If we let our grass stay a little longer then we wouldn't need to mow as often creating less emissions and when it is longer it doesn't require as much water. It's true I've tried it.

David108 over 6 years ago
challenge ideas: shower twice a week instead of every day, keep shower to 10 minutes. don't let water keep running while brushing your teeth. guerrilla garden in vacant lots and along alleys. plant seeds of vegetables/fruits (squash, peppers, fruit seeds, etc.) instead of throwing them away. set up a greywater system (example, flush toilet with dirty dishwater).

Hi Char: Sorry for the confusion. There are actually two leaderboards we provide on the site. The first one shows how much CO2 OTEP Green Team has reduced in the last 30 days. This is our default leaderboard, and for the OTEP Gren Team it is 17.3 tons (!). The second view of the leaderboard shows how much CO2 has been elimited by the OTEP Green Team since the team was formed.. this is the "all time" leaderboard. This shows 22.27 tons... all through small actions of many, many people... you folks are incredible. Keep up the leadership!
Love. Peace. HP. over 6 years ago
it doesn't matter how much carbon you save..they won't put you in time magazine if that's what you are aiming at.....but great carbon saving guys...if we slacked a little bit..it's ok...because at elast we know somebody cares about the earth....just one question...who is OTEP?? ARE YOU LIKE A BAND??

the correct total's not showing up on the leadership board... not that i'm that worried about it though, everyone knows that our groups pwns life =]

Gothyboi over 6 years ago
Np Desi :-) I agree midnitewitch, I started that challenge about a week ago, and to tell the truth I do think there has been a little more milage out of it. Plus air is pretty cheap or if you have a QT it's free. Mobile also does free water and air if you buy anything inside and ask for it to be turnned on. Check my suggestions, the couple I did can also help save carbon from entering our air. While saving money on your electric or natural gas bill.

ThornReckless over 6 years ago
Hey guys. In an interveiw I heard on the radio of a guy who works at a recycling company, he said recycling stuff that isn't rubber or metal is a "waste of time". He claimed that after all the trucks moving to get them to the recylcing plants and the "carbon burned to mealt down the products" is all actually worse than if we just threw it away. I believe it, but I still recycle. But it's contradictory to the extent that it makes you want to scream. Recycle = long run of killing the world. Not recycling = fast way to kill the world.

I looked at this and was fascinated with how much everything concerning this team has jumped in the last week. It's truly amazing, and quite inspirational. I was also quite pleased with how many people have left comments about being vegan and vegetarians because I've always been messed with by my family for not eating meat and such, but even though I was going to stick to it no matter what anyone said, it just made me want to stay a vegetarian that much more. Thanks guys, and keep up the absolutely stunning work. :] "Koennen wir, zusammen sein, bis Tod uns trennt"

Silence never solved anything, but this is actually a great way to help our planet. I'll be an advocate for this anywhere and everywhere. Our planet means more to me than a hot shower. <3

Since Ive joined Ive been taking on about 8.0lbs and plan on taking more. We need to do all we can. Some people that I am working with are trying to put together what we call revolution G which is a tour dedicated to energy concumption. We even are building tourbus engines that run on greese. Its working well. Long live Otep LUCION

Wow this site is awesome. Let's top the chart everyone! I think the soda challenge should be taken on by all, soda has ZERO health benefits, makes you thirstier, and decays your teeth. After one week of no soda it makes me sick to drink it now so yeah, it's seriously crap. I bet we were brainwashed to drink it so the dental association would make more money (being paranoid is fun!). Good luck everyone! Take it seriously please!

Fortunately i was raised in a household in which we recycle EVERYTHING. My mom has always had "earth bags" for groceries as well. I'm always trying to make my friends aware of how wasteful they are.

wow it's so awesome that you guys actually care! a lot of bands and people with power over the media will say that they care, but it's really a publicity thing. it's really great that OTEP is actually doing something about it! i'm inspired and really happy to be a part of this<3333

Hi YolicideAsphyxia: There is a javascript badge available for all members of this team. It is visible in the left hand margin of this page, as are directions for using it. Javascript doesn't work on MySpace, but it will work on personal pages. We are working on a version that will work for MySpace too. Thanks for all of your support, action, and spreading the word!

<Center><Small><BR>once again, You've inspired me. Otep, You should post a badge so we can put it on either our CarbonRally profile or mySpace so we can make it more aware.
