Comments Off on Experts predict more devastating Dubai skyscraper fires

The New Year’s Eve fire at The Address Downtown in Dubai shocked onlookers from around the world — an entire 63-story skyscraper engulfed in flame while a holiday fireworks display took place nearby. But what’s really frightening about the fire is the fact that it’s not an isolated occurrence. In fact, it’s the eighth such fire to strike the United Arab Emirates in the past two decades, and experts say it’s not likely to be the last.

Climate Change Deniers Win in the Battle to (Not) Address Global Warming

Comments Off on Climate Change Deniers Win in the Battle to (Not) Address Global Warming

Scientists don’t usually play into dramatics, but earlier this month  The American Association for the Advancement of Science  practically shouted from the rooftops about the dangers of climate change. If they had been shouting about something sensational, perhaps the news cycles would have covered the story non-stop. But instead, scientists find themselves in the unenviable position of trying to force people to care about what may be the biggest issue facing humanity. With climate change threatening everything from food to water ways , why is it so difficult to get people to care?

Comments Off on 400,000 Plastic Sandals Upcycled Into Colorful Oceanside Sculptures

Although ocean beaches are one of the most beautiful parts of nature, they’re also the place we’re most likely to come face to face with the ugly side of overconsumption. Beaches around the world are littered with plastic waste–everything from plastic bags to flip flops. One company has spent years fishing these cast-off shoes from the surf, not to transport them to the landfill, but to create something new and wonderful from what was once trash. Ocean Sole, a flip flop recycling company based in Nairobi, Kenya, has collected over 400,000 plastic sandals from the shores of the Indian Ocean and turned them into sculptures, household items, fashion accessories, gifts, stationary, and more.

Facebook’s green-roofed, Frank Gehry -designed campus was just given the green light by the Palo Alto city council. Submitted for approval last fall, the campus will connect with the company’s current headquarters in Menlo Park via an underground tunnel, and it will feature Gehry’s signature furling architecture – although it was slightly toned down from the original plan. The sprawling 433,555-square-foot complex will rise like a hillside with an oak tree-filled park on its roof.
