Comments Off on Cold front turns Niagara Falls into a glorious icy wonderland

In case you hadn’t heard: It’s cold in the Eastern half of North America. So cold, in fact, that everything surrounding the Niagara Falls has frozen over, creating a mesmerizing winter wonderland. NIAGARA FALLS, ? BY AARON LYNETT #inspo #weather #snow #winter #goals #niagarafalls #canada #travel A post shared by MISC ZINE (@misc.zine) on Jan 1, 2018 at 5:23am PST The frigid temperatures east of the Rocky Mountains have been setting new records. This week, it has been -15 Fahrenheit in Niagara Falls , while Edmonton in Alberta felt like -40 degrees; that’s colder than Mars is right now. When it gets that cold, windows break, electric poles snap and most people try not to head outside, which is probably good because many cars won’t start anyway.

But that doesn’t make the phenomenon any less breathtaking. If you can’t visit Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side to witness the magic yourself, check out these photos from brave visitors.

Comments Off on Masdar Helps Oman Prepare for the Post-Oil Era With the Gulf’s First Wind Farm

The Sultanate of Oman is building the largest wind farm in the Gulf States region. The $125 million, 50-megawatt project is a joint development between Abu Dhabi’s renewable energy company, Masdar , and Oman’s Rural Areas Electricity Company (RAECO). Estimated to generate enough clean electricity to power 16,000 homes and mitigate 110,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year, the project is also remarkable for the language used to promote it: the Gulf States are looking to a low-carbon, post-oil future .
