Ethanol-fueled cook-stoves are great for our health, and Project Gaia is dedicated to promoting their use worldwide!

"Since 2013, Project Gaia has supported research by Dr. Christopher Sola Olopade, Professor of Family Medicine and Medicine and Clinical Director of the Global Health Initiative at the University of Chicago, on household air pollution and ethanol-fueled cookstoves. The nonprofit has so far contributed to four published studies by providing technical assistance and ethanol-fueled cookstoves for the research projects. Overall, Dr. Olopade’s research has shown that ethanol fueled cookstoves have a positive impact on household health."

Screen-free week is a week for everyone to take a break from electronics and spend time on other activities, like reading, biking, or playing catch, Not only is it beneficial to us, but it can also help promote sustainability!

"A March study published in the Journal of Cleaner Production found that the contribution of information and computer technologies to the global carbon footprint is growing and expected to continue doing so. In 2007, these technologies accounted for one percent of global emissions, but that number is expected to climb to 3.5 percent in 2020 and 14 percent in 2040."

$306 billion in damages last hurricane season, and businesses and municipalities are feeling the effects. Insurance costs are rising, there are operational disruptions, and population shifts. Sustainability is essential to mitigate these effects.

"In a world of increasing options to mitigate corporate and municipal risks from extreme weather, remember this: reducing your carbon footprint is not just a smart policy for our planet; it’s a smart and sustainable opportunity for your organization."

A study released yesterday reveals that poorer, tropical countries, which have not contributed as much to climate change as richer countries, will suffer more from major temperature swings.

“There has been a lot of debate about how rich countries can help poor countries to adapt, but they have overlooked this aspect — that the impacts of climate variability change might be worse in the poorer countries,” said Sebastian Bathiany, a climate change researcher at Wageningen University in the Netherlands who led the research published in Science Advances.

New silicon-based anode materials could significantly improve the performance of lithium-ion batteries, making electric vehicles even more efficient.

"For EVs, an increase in so-called energy density either significantly extends the mileage range possible on a single charge or decreases the cost of the batteries needed to reach standard ranges."

A study of 885 European cities found that two thirds of them have climate mitigation or adaptation plans in place, but only a few countries require cities to develop local climate plans.

"To find out what works and what doesn’t, it’s essential for cities to network and share knowledge, to create and improve on their local climate plans. There is simply too much at stake for the world’s cities to go their separate ways when it comes to climate change."
