Comments Off on EPA announces plans to limit airplane emissions

Although the cost of airfare has declined dramatically since the late 1970s , the environmental cost of flying is rising as more travelers take to the skies. Aviation currently accounts for 2 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions, but by 2020 aviation emissions could be 70% higher than in 2005. As part of its comprehensive emissions regulations, the Obama Administration just announced plans to limit emissions from airplanes. Although no specific restrictions were mandated in the EPA’s announcement on Wednesday, the statement sends a clear statement on how the aviation industry should develop over the coming decades.

Aviation industry looks to emissions trading to meet environmental goals

Comments Off on Aviation industry looks to emissions trading to meet environmental goals

A new study indicates that the aviation industry is responsible for up to 2.5 percent of the world’s carbon emissions , which is higher than most individual countries. Researchers calculate that the industry will not be able to meet their 2020 goal of becoming essentially carbon neutral. Instead, they might be able to meet that goal by 2050, if they pull out all the stops.

Comments Off on Futuristic Antarctic Research System is a modular shelter for modern-day nomads

These futuristic mobile pods were designed to provide optimal living and working conditions for researchers exploring the coldest, driest, and windiest continent on Earth: Antarctica. Henry Mckenzie teamed up with his colleague Artur Kupriichuk and came up with a design for his master thesis which envisions a modular shelter for modern-day nomads who live and work in one of the most extreme climates on the planet.

Comments Off on Southwest’s New Airplane Climate Sensors Could Revolutionize Weather Forecasting

Southwest Airlines just unveiled plans to install climate sensors in its planes, essentially creating a new weather monitoring network in the air above our heads. So far 87 Boeing 737s have been equipped with Water Vapor Sensing Systems (WVSS-II) that keep track of humidity when the planes take off and land. The WVSS-II sensors will provide a flurry of new weather data, all of which will be collected in real-time.
