Though it probably won’t be advertised on billboards around the English-speaking world any time soon, this kayak’s clever design will speak to paddlers in any language. The Boner Kayak, named for its Swiss inventor Hans Boner, breaks down into three pieces which slot together and can fit in the back seat of a car. While most portable kayaks are made of plastic, the wood and fibreglass construction of the Boner Kayak set it apart, giving it an eye-catching classic look when it’s skimming across the water.

Comments Off on Two electric planes just made history by flying over the English Channel

The quest for zero-fuel transportation options is a competitive one, with innovators in various countries racing to be the first at any number of landmark achievements. This morning, not one but two electric planes successfully flew across the English Channel , making it quite a historic day for clean energy. First, a French pilot navigated a single-passenger electric airplane from France to England and back, securing a ‘first’ for battery-powered flight. Hours later, Airbus launched an electric plane from England to travel a similar flight path and that plane landed safely in France to complete its one-way trip across the Channel.

Comments Off on Roel de Boer’s English Roofing Tile Could Transform Any Roof into a Vibrant Garden

Roel de Boer’ s New English Roofing Tile is a new green building product that could transform urban roofs into vibrant gardens. The plastic tiles are shaped like triangular pockets that can be placed on top of existing tiles, and they were designed for both plants and animals to live and nest on city rooftops. Like flat green roofs, the tiles will provide great insulation , energy savings, and they could also help to reduce stormwater runoff. + Roel de Boer Photos by Roel de Boer Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Air quality , Biodiversity , Botanical , dutch design , green products , green roof , New English Roofing Tile , pockets , Roel de Boer , triangular

Comments Off on Extinct Short-Haired Bumblebees to be Brought Back to English Countryside

Short-haired bumblebees (Bombus subterraneus) became exinct in the UK almost 25 years ago, but now scientists are planning to reintroduce them into the countryside . Last weekend, a team of scientists traveled to Sweden to collect around 100 bumblebee queens, with the goal of releasing them in Kent in the south-east of the country. Reports say the species is thriving in the Swedish county of Skåne , where early bee preservation attempts were made in order to conserve areas of wild flowers.
