Comments Off on Wildfires Threatening 700 Homes in Northern California Under Control For Now

Light rain and increased humidity have helped fire fighters start to get a handle on two wildfires that are currently threatening more than 700 homes in Northern California – but residents are far from out of the woods yet. CBS News reports that the Eiler Fire in Lassen National Forest has burned through nearly 45 square miles to timber and is in sight of the Shasta County community of Burney, where it threatens 700 homes – though it didn’t grow overnight on Aug. 4 and remains four miles away from the town. The nearby Bald Fire, which is the larger of the two fires, has forced the evacuation of about a dozen homes after burning through a total of 62 square miles of forest.

Scientists Create Cheap, Efficient Spray-On Solar Cells

Comments Off on Scientists Create Cheap, Efficient Spray-On Solar Cells

For the first time, scientists have figured out a way to create efficient, affordable spray-on solar cells. While the concept itself isn’t something new, spray-on technology in the past has been inefficient or costly, so it hasn’t really held any promise for changing the way we make solar panels. But now, using a new material called perovskite,  scientists have created a spray-painting process that could change the solar game.

Comments Off on Pacific Northwest Burns as Drought Leads to Unprecedented Wildfire Activity

Nobody is fiddling while the Pacific Northwest burns in an unprecedented and devastating ‘ring of fire.’ Roughly 1 million acres of forest is currently ablaze in 21 separate wildfires in Washington and Oregon – the most the region has seen at any one time in recorded history. The fires were set off by the perfect storm: A wet spring was followed by severe drought conditions and then lightning passed through the area about a week ago. The biggest fire of the bunch, dubbed the Carlton Complex , is the largest in Washington’s history and has already consumed an area of northern Washington three times the size of Seattle. It’s currently just 52 percent contained.
