Comments Off on Researchers Predict when Earth’s Major Cities will Feel Climate Change

We’ve known for a long time that climate change is affecting different parts of the world at different rates — while major changes haven’t yet hit areas that have historically been fairly temperate, changes have already started to hit the arctic  and tropical island nations . Now, a group of researchers at the University of Hawaii has done the math to figure out exactly how soon different world cities can expect to feel major changes in their average climate.

The Stealth Bomber: An Electric Bike Fit for the Dark Knight

Comments Off on The Stealth Bomber: An Electric Bike Fit for the Dark Knight

So Bruce Wayne didn’t get to realize his dream of supplying Gotham  with endless amounts of clean energy. Maybe he should have started smaller in his efforts to go green, like swapping out some of those gas guzzling vehicles for less carbon-intensive alternatives. If Batman was ever to give his fleet a green upgrade, we think the Bomber from the UK’s Stealth Electric Bikes would be the perfect addition.

Georgia Tech’s Self-Charging Piezoelectric Power Cell Can Harvest 5X More Energy From Footsteps

Comments Off on Georgia Tech’s Self-Charging Piezoelectric Power Cell Can Harvest 5X More Energy From Footsteps

A team of researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a self-charging power cell that is able to directly convert mechanical energy into chemical energy. The cell then stores the power until it is released as electrical current. The all-in-one piezoelectric power cell essentially eliminates the need to convert mechanical energy to electrical energy for charging a battery, as its new hybrid generator/storage capability utilizes mechanical energy more efficiently than systems which use separate generators and batteries.

Comments Off on The Sustainable Disaster Recovery Conference Comes to St. Louis on Oct 29 – Register Now!

Natural disasters are physically, socially, and psychologically devastating to a town.  It can be extremely difficult to rebuild civic infrastructures and restore the lives of residents.  Where do individuals, families, organizations and governments begin to look for help?  Are there processes, policies, or protocols in place for dealing with the unthinkable?  The Sustainable Disaster Recovery Conference   brings together organizations from many different sectors in a collaborative effort to address these types of questions.  The The Sustainable Disaster Recovery Conference aims to spread awareness of “green” options available to help disaster-stricken towns not just reconstruct their cities, but to rebuild efficient, livable communities that are healthier and stronger than ever before. Hosted by Saint Louis University’s The Center for Sustainability , Greensburg GreenTown and GreenTown Joplin , the groundbreaking The Sustainable Disaster Recovery Conference will be held at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri from Monday, October 29, 201 2 through Tuesday, October 30, 2012 .

Sloan’s Innovative AQUS Grey Water Toilet System Recycles Your Sink Water

Comments Off on Sloan’s Innovative AQUS Grey Water Toilet System Recycles Your Sink Water

One of the oddest quirks in our homes is that we flush toilets with water good enough for drinking — and toilets consume on average 40% of a household’s water use. To address this issue Sloan Valve Company has been hard at work perfecting the AQUS water reclamation system , which takes your bathroom’s sink water and recycles it for flushing in your toilet. As a do-it-yourself project the kit takes about 1 hour to install and promises to save up to 6,000 gallons each year. Other than perhaps saving water in a bucket, the Aqus provides the simplest and most effective solution to reducing our water footprint — and it has garnered a lot of attention for its innovative design.
