From the news that a modern Robin Hood used an arrow with 4 razor blades and a crossbow to free an endangered Right Whale to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, which is on par to outpace the Exxon Valdez oil spill in terms of size, impact, and devastation, a lot happened this week in green. VW has unveiled the diesel engine that will power its Polo Bluemotion and help it achieve a pretty impressive 71.3 MPG; the Guardian reports on some new stats on honeybee deaths in the United States that are pretty disturbing, and one company has invented a device that can power electronics with something you've been just flushing down the toilet all this time--your pee. Find out what else happened in the world of green this week in our photo roundup of most popular, most important, and most oddball stories.
