Tidal Turbines and Lightbulbs

The NY Times online video has a few green features.

"Tidal Turbines: Powering up under water" highlights a pilot project off of tiny Roosevelt Island in NYC's East River where two turbines are projected to generate energy for a grocery store and apartment building nearby.

"Understanding Light Bulbs: Wal-Mart backs energy efficient bulbs" takes a walk through Wal-Mart's new light bulb selection and compares the traditional incandescent with the more energy friendly compact flourescent.

These 5-minute-ish news stories get into about as much depth as you can with a simple video segment, but do get to the point and highlight some eco-minded alternatives in this mainstream media outlet.
