When we started AutoblogGreen on Earth Day 2006, we had no idea all of the places that covering the less-wasteful side of the auto industry would take us or how interesting the different eco-mobility strategies from the various automakers would be. Eight years later, we're still engaged with this topic. Now that we're celebrating our bronze anniversary, we're happy to once again look at the big picture and remember why every drop matters.

Not everyone is a fan of setting aside a day to celebrate the natural world, but we still agree with the idea of spending at least 24 hours in this sort of contemplation. The auto industry likes to get into the act as well. This year, the Diesel Technology Forum is promoting clean diesel, Toyota accepted the EPA WasteWise award for the fourth year in a row, General Motors talked about reducing energy intensity by 32 percent at four plants, Chrysler made some big natural gas savings and Nissan said it celebrates Earth Day every day. Let's see what tomorrow brings.

      Sebastian, how is it possible to be so sheepish as to uncritically write 'clean diesel' as a celebration of earth? we might as well celebrate the lubricating properties of lead in gasoline. or PCB or effing asbestos. Why must you all be so mindless.

      I think Earth Day will be more popular if celebrated in August instead of April. Especially after such a brutal winter... many people are starting to thing Global Warming is not real (because people are short sighted enough to think that a single year of "weather" indicates anything about the trend of long term "climate") If folks think about Earth Day when they can at least feel like Global Waarming is noticeable.. that might change their mentality.

      Forbes isn't even worth cushioning the bottom of a cricket cage.

      Breaking: big trucks are switching to natural gas, why are they not doing the same thing for cars. I will be glad to put nat gas that is sourced from north america into my car. They could have do it 5 years ago. Also they can do hydrogen from nat gas and°or water electrolisis.
