Summary:
A teen from Holland is proposing a plan that could potentially rid the oceans of plastic in 5 years with a series of floating booms. The booms would be anchored to the sea floor where ocean currents would push the plastic into the arms and eventually into a collection bin where it would be recycled. Patrick Jones (@Patrick_E_Jones) has the rest.

Is Your Furnace a Dirty Thief?

3BL Media (Jan. 3, 2013) — According to http://energystar.gov, as much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. At a minimum, you should change the filter in your furnace every three months it is in use. A dirty filter will slow down air flow and make the system work harder to keep you warm. A clean filter will prevent dust and dirt from building up in the system, saving you energy and money. Visit http://ilenergysaver.org to learn more energy saving tips. Remember to inspect, clean or change your furnace filter once a month, and stop those dirty thieves.
