    if he can get more backlinks than the sites with the original content he can make the other sites look like dupe content

    You have a couple problems with that blog, basically what everyone else said, and the blog title is not relevant to the content. If your doing a "going green" theme you need articles that support that, not the global war articles you are currently showing. Oh and to fix some of the design issues, use a white background and black text, make it look happy. Happy people click ad links.

    Overall, I think the blog is fine. It may be a little too dark of a green, but I would definitely keep it green. Some easy things you could do is create a site map, privacy policy, contact us, and an about us page.

    oh yeah, just to mention, you'll be fine content wise. it's not like google actually goes around and kills all sites that copies another site to 95%.

    But yeah that green is horrible ^^

    I have no clue what you are trying to say here, but if there is a another site that is 95% like this one then I am not aware of it. The template is public but the content has been edited from a yahoo group that I have auto drafted to the blog. I then remove all the yahoo crap from it and post the article. It's no different than an auto blog except it's edited before it's posted.

    I agree the articles need to be more relevant. It is a hot niche so you should be able to monetize it.

    The color scheme irritates my eyes. There is nothing on the site that motivates me to click on the ads. The adsense ads should be spread out in between the article, i.e
    blah blah blah blah
    adsense ads

    blah blah blah blah.
    Add some web 2.0 bookmarks (diggs, twitter, google reader, etc) so that people can bookmark you. What is your outcome for this site?? Adsense income, move ebay products?? Re purpose the blog with a well define outcome!!
