Imagine old military planes used to revitalize barren areas of the earth, instead of causing death and destruction to the environment and wildlife. This reality may be closer than you think. Former RAF pilot, Jack Walters of Shropshire, England, believes C-130 transport aircraft — originally used for carpeting landmines across combat zones — could easily be refitted to deliver something exceptionally beneficial and peaceful: tree bombs.

Since 2009, the quantity of #ethane in the atmosphere has been increasing by 5% per year. Prior to this, concentrations of the gas had actually been decreasing over a twenty-year period thanks to successful political initiatives. This gas tends to lead to peak ozone levels in the air we breathe and increase the atmospheric lifetime of #greenhouse #gases. Ethane essentially comes from the exploitation of oil and natural gas. It is also a good indicator of anthropogenic emissions of #methane. A multiple study initiated by the University of Liege using measurements and modelling has clearly identified the main cause of the increase of ethane in the atmosphere: the sudden expansion of #shale gas exploitation in the #US.

This thing is a trash eater! Wish all bay cities had a couple of these to clean up the water. #Solar #SolarWheel
As billions of pounds of plastic enter our oceans every year, making up roughly 40 percent of the world’s oceans, it is crucial we eradicate the waste we have so effortlessly distributed. It takes 500 to 1,000 years for plastic to disintegrate, and we simply don’t have time to let nature take its course. To …

Does your car get 63+ miles per gallon? The new Toyota Prius does. Toyota has not embraced Electric Vehicles (EVs), and I think this is a HUGE strategic mistake. However, I recently rented a 2016 Prius for a weekend camping trip and the miles-per-gallon were remarkable. So perhaps Toyota believes they can hang on to the gasoline engine for a little while longer. I think they are wrong, because there is still so much upside for improvements for EVs, and not so much upside for improvements for gas engines. Hopefully, Toyota will produce EVs in the near future.
Does your car get 63+ miles per gallon? The new Toyota Prius does. But still, the future should belong to Electric Vehicles (EVs) for three main reasons. EVs cost less to operate because electric…
