Wow. I love to drive, but there are times it might be nice not to have to... 
Regulatory doors are now open, allowing for the removal of steering wheel, pedals, etc.

Yes, we do. All of us.
Yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling to pause implementation of the Clean Power Plan will likely only be a temporary time out. Most states are already laying plans to comply—and indeed, it's in their best interest to do so.

LEDs (especially cheap knockoffs) have their own challenges, but they use a tiny amount of energy in comparison to incandescent bulbs, and about 1/2 the energy of a CFL. No mercury, either, and a longer life span. Given that, this is not surprising.
The compact fluorescent light bulb, once the undisputed energy-efficient alternative, is being overtaken by LEDs and will not be made or sold in the United States by G.E. by year’s end.

Absolutely incredible detail in this paper sculpture. I've seen his work before, but it's worth revisiting.

Interesting read.

A local professor is working with a project to re-photograph mountain passes captured a century ago. 
Tracking them down is a globe-trotting adventure that rivals any jungle expedition.

A good start.
Most of the discussion about the Paris Agreement focuses on countries' new climate plans, which are aimed at the post-2020 period. But the decisions made in Paris can also ramp up action in the short term, too.

I would hate to guess how many 'green' certification standards there are now... well over 200, at least. LEED, BuiltGreen and Living Buildings are among the most well known for buildings, but SITES is a similar design for sustainable landscapes. This introductory video series is about 1/2 hour long, and you need a (free) USGBC membership to see it, but it's a good intro. Landscapes need to be a part of the building design process right from the beginning.

Rumor has it that gravitational waves might be detected soon - a late triumph for Einstein's theory of general relativity. But what are these waves?

This seems like silliness to me.

Work
Occupation
I am a writer, a photographer, and a biologist-type person who has done environmental assessment and related work in five Canadian provinces. As a photographer my main interest is in landscape and nature photography, often using HDR and panoramic techniques. I supplement this interest with 'street shots': vignettes or moments that catch my attention. My creative writing is mostly short stories, although I sometimes write poetry in the Japanese style: haiku and gogyohka. I have wide spiritual interests, and I sometimes post links to articles on environmental advances or other areas that I believe may be of interest to those who have me in their circles.
