Comments Off on Dutch Scientists Invent Smog-Eating Pavement to Help Clean the Air

Photo via Shutterstock In urban areas, both smog and pavement seem to dominate the landscape. While the two may seem like separate and distinct elements of the city ecosystem, the air and ground could potentially be linked together to help reduce overall pollution. Dutch scientists from the Eindhoven University of Technology have invented a new method to clear the atmosphere by treating paving blocks with titanium oxide. The special “photocatalytic pavement” was amazingly able to cut smog in half compared to a control.

Lin Yu-Ta Designs Energy Generating Towers of Trash to Power the Cities of Tomorrow

Comments Off on Lin Yu-Ta Designs Energy Generating Towers of Trash to Power the Cities of Tomorrow

In Monument to Civilization , Lin Yu-Ta proposes a dark, staggering architectural solution to the massive problem of urban waste. With space for toxin-emitting landfill in decline, Lin suggests that we might instead construct epic towers from that waste, and from that decomposing trash generate power for the world’s largest cities. The towers would be massive – New York alone, Lin tells us, sends 2,372,000 tons of trash to landfills each year. That’s enough to construct a tower 1,318 meters high each year . This ingenious, sobering proposal for sustainable energy was recently awarded third place in the eVolo’s 2012 Skyscraper Competition .

Image: Screen grab Finding the Organic Solar Needle in the Molecule Haystack You don’t have to look into a crystal ball to see that solar power has a bright future. But before it can start to really take over a large fraction of our civilization’s electricity generation, it has to fall down in price further so that choosing to deploy solar panels stops being the “green choice” or the “subsidized choice” but rather the “default choice” because it s… Read the full story on TreeHugger

Comments Off on Mock Ecocide Trial Returns Guilty Verdict on Oil CEO (Video)

Image credit: The Hamilton Group Update: Video of the trial is now included in this post. When I wrote about a planned mock ecocide trial to explore what would happen if CEOs were held responsible for their companies’ destruction of the environment, commenters wished it could happen in real life. While that reality is not yet with us, the mock trial has gone ahead—and the verdict came back “guilty”. But what does it all mean? … Read the full story on TreeHugger

City Cottage: Set to reconnect human’s relationship with nature

Comments Off on City Cottage: Set to reconnect human’s relationship with nature

B Phanindra Kumar: City Cottage Designed by Verstas Architects Most of us have read the poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost. The writer depicted the two things—the beauty of the woods and the busy mechanical life. Yes, the nature and humans are interlinked and are inseparable. However, caught in the rat race of earning money, one is moving far from the nature that has been resulting in the increased crime rate and corrupted minds. Though a few people want to at least spend their weekends in woods but they do not find any scope for the same. In order to reconnect the relation of human with nature, Finland based Verstas Architects has come out with City Cottage. Picture Gallery City Cottage City Cottage by Verstas Architects This City Cottage is a family resident—a home away from the home built on the city out skirts and in a nature preserve. The cottage is covered with lush green from all sides. Besides, one can pamper his ears and ignite the senses by listening to the birds chirping and smelling the fresh budding flowers. City Cottage is a 14-meter-cabin, and has everything neatly equipped in it; from sofas to well designed kitchen with stove, kettle and other utensils. The walls of the cottage are made of plywood and glass. One can enjoy relaxing on the sofa while staring at the woods from the see through glasses of the wall. A family can come to this place for picnic too. Best part is the location, which is just a few miles away from the civilization. Therefore, one can easily reach the city area by just peddling a bicycle in an emergency. A great design by Verstas Architects. Via: Designboom

Comments Off on Lost Civilizations: 12 Societies that Vanished in Mystery

[ By Steph in History & Trivia & Science & Research . ] Why would a flourishing civilization, advanced for its time, suddenly cease to exist, its inhabitants gone and its architecture abandoned? Conspiracy theorists offer all manner of offbeat explanations including alien abduction, but in the case of these 12 societies, the causes were likely more mundane: natural disasters, climate  change, invasions and economic irrelevance

Comments Off on China’s Changing Economy

In Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization, I have presented a plan to dramatically reduce carbon emissions by increasing energy efficiency and replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy. In the push to reduce emissions, all eyes are on China, the world’s most populous country and now also the world’s top carbon emitter. Here are some highlights from the Plan B 4.0 datasets on China’s energy economy : ..
