Best of Earth Day, Tesla P85D Gets Insanity Boost… (Cleantech Link Drop)

It’s Earth Day, which many green bloggers hate, since spending just 1 day thinking about how to preserve human livability on this small planet simply doesn’t cut it. On the flip side, it is an opportunity to make more people aware of the benefits of solar energy, electric vehicles, bicycling, and other good green stuff. If you want to take the opportunity to encourage some friends and family to green up, those are 3 links I highly recommend.

Of course, I also recommend that they read CleanTechnica on a daily basis, or that you at least share top stories throughout the year.

Aside from our own stories, I of course try to share some of the best cleantech and green stories from around the web. Here are some from the past day or so:
