Comments Off on This powerful video sheds light on 5 things about plastic you might not know
[youtube =http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E98-aHrkeaA] This powerful video, titled ” 5 Things You Didn’t Know About Plastic “, uses a Rube Goldberg machine to follow the journey a plastic bottle takes from “factory to home” to shed light on the unintended consequences plastic waste has on our environment, and what we can do to eliminate waste, and save money. For example, did you know that 8 percent of all oil extracted from the planet is used to make plastic? Or that 91 percent of plastic never gets recycled? Every piece of plastic ever created still exists in some form… and hopefully this video can shed a bit of light on the planet’s plastic woes , and how they can be addressed. + CleanPath The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on EPA: Fiat Chrysler used software to cheat on vehicle emissions
Today, the EPA accused Fiat Chrysler of cheating emissions standards in over 100,000 of their vehicles, echoing the scandal that has been rocking Volkswagen . According to the EPA, the company installed software on SUVs and trucks made in 2014, 2015 and 2016 that allowed them to evade standards, allowing poisonous nitrous oxide into the atmosphere. While the current administration has shown it is willing to pursue Clean Air Act violators, the incoming administration could choose not to continue the investigation. The Italian automaker is accused of installing 8 different programs aimed at giving a false emissions picture. If those programs qualify as “defeat devices,” Fiat Chrysler could face a fine of up to $44,539 per vehicle if found guilty of violations of the Clean Air Act. Related: Volkswagen to pay $4.3 billion to US following emissions scandal Fiat Chrysler stated that it had offered to develop software fixes to help ease the problem and that they intend to plead their case to the incoming Trump administration . The company did not disclose the issue, rather, the EPA discovered during testing that the vehicles appeared to be within standards at a moderate speed, but at higher speeds or on longer trips, the emissions violated air quality standards. “FCA US is disappointed that the EPA has chosen to issue a notice of violation with respect to the emissions control technology employed in the company’s 2014-16 model year light duty 3.0-liter diesel engines. FCA US intends to work with the incoming administration to present its case and resolve this matter fairly and equitably and to assure the EPA and FCA US customers that the company’s diesel-powered vehicles meet all applicable regulatory requirements,” Fiat Chrysler said in a statement. via USA Today images via Petr Magera
