Comments Off on New Yale Survey Finds Americans Increasingly Believe Climate Change Is Driving Extreme Weather

Photo from Shutterstock A new report from Yale and George Mason University  finds that 74 percent of Americans now believe global warming is changing the weather in the United States. A September survey shows that figure has climbed 5 percent since March . When asked about six specific weather events, majorities of respondents to the survey said global warming made each event worse, with respondents most likely to connect global warming to the record temperatures experienced in the summer of 2012.

Comments Off on Concrete Mode Repurpose Waste Cement Bags into Sturdy Totes

Concrete Mode is a Thailand-based company that creates incredibly sturdy totes, bags and pencil cases the discarded bags used to transport concrete. Concrete is the most consumed man-made material on earth and more than half of all the world’s concrete consumption occurs in Asia. Besides immense CO2 emissions , concrete consumption produces waste when transporting it via bags. Instead of these bags ending up in landfill, Concrete Mode’s founders believe these bags should be repurposed into useful, fun, and fashionable items. After a successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year, they’ve been at work producing the bags and have even tested out a prototype umbrella from the salvaged fabric. + Concrete Mode The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

If you are reading this article, I think you are probably more concerned about the environment than most others. I assume that you keep up with environmental news a bit, reading more than the miniscule amount covered in the mainstream media.
