ecosnoop: Peer Pressure for Nerds

Updated on November 26, 2010

Were you picked on as a kid?

Didja have a bad time on the playground? Bullies knocked you down and took your lunch money? Mom dressed you funny?

Here's your chance to get back at the world. offers an iPhone app that links to their web site. Simply find a planetary polluter, snap a photo, and post it online. Saving the Earth was never so anonymous. Download the free software here.

Fink on the World with Your iPhone

Tale a picture, pass judgment, and upload your screed to It's that easy. Save the world one snapshot at a time.

Is the temperature too high in the Intensive Care Ward? Tell the world.

Should that family of 6 be shoehorned into a Prius? Take a picture of their minivan and post it on ecosnoop. It's all good. The planet cries out for yet another digital advocate.

Does the lighting at your favorite Starbucks hurt your eyes? Too bright? Too many bulbs? Never mind the zoning regulations, they're busted!

Here's how the world gets saved

This poor soul expresses outrage at Lights on a Crane...

They leave this crain (sic) light on every night. It literally lights up my entire apartment. The picture isn't the best quality, but you have to understand that it is 4 huge spot lights on a construction crain (sic) 4 blocks away. It is almost 1am and tree is no reason that all those lights need to be on. By 7 am thy are turned off. The 4 other buildings being built in the neighbourhood do not have their crain (sic) lights on.

Our Intervention:

Dear Mr. Crain Dude,
 Please turn off your crain light every night. 
It shines into the window of my tenement. 
I spent all my money on iPhones, iPods, and iSelfRighteousness. 
I can't afford window treatments. 

Your Friend,


Conclusion offers the ultimate application of world-repairing technology. It's a point-and-shoot panoply of green touchy-feely, but without the yucky human contact or anything. Our only suggestion is that the web site employ a black background - turn off all those energy wasting pixels.
