Comments Off on Greenheart Project: The World’s First Open Source, Solar-Powered Ship

Greenheart is a growing social enterprise with big ideas. Design is nearly complete on Greenheart’s first innovation: a new class of sustainable, low-cost, zero-emission sail/ solar-powered ship designed to fill current weaknesses and gaps in the global shipping industry. The first new ship of its kind, the S/V Greenheart (“S/V” meaning “ Sailing Vessel ”), is being developed specifically for those communities marginalized by a lack of capital, that lack access to deep-water ports, and that are unable to cope with rising fuels costs. Our primary objective for this project is to develop a fleet of ships that will return the seas to what they once were for all coastal and island people: an opportunity for growth, connection, and advancement in our expanding global marketplace.

Data from NASA shows that this year’s hole in the ozone layer above Antarctica remains largely unchanged. On September 9, 2014, it measured 24.1m square km, which is roughly the size of North America; only a little smaller than the largest hole ever observed, which occurred in the same spot in 2000, and much the same as it was at its peak in 2010, 2012 and 2013.
