If you read our en light ening “how to switch to LED bulbs” tutorial , you’ve hopefully already seen how much money and energy you can save by replacing your incandescent bulbs, but we wanted to make it even clearer how easy and effective a home light bulb makeover can be. We headed over to Brooklyn to give a light bulb overhaul to the managing editor of Inhabitots , our very own Julie Seguss ! Julie is going to be a new mom in just a few months, so saving money is of the utmost importance right now, but she still wanted to keep her Park Slope home illuminated with a warm, bright glow. In just a few hours, the Inhabitat lighting makeover crew (aka Inhabitat editors Jill & Yuka ) were able to swap out all of Julie’s electricity-guzzling incandescents and halogens with energy-efficient Philips LEDs , and we think you’ll be impressed with the monthly savings we tallied up for Julie at the end of the day. Check out our video above to see the whole makeover, and find out how much extra cash Julie and her husband will have after the makeover to spend on diapers and baby clothes!

Comments Off on New Report Reveals Humans are Causing the Warming of the Ocean’s Upper Layers

A new  report from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has stated that the simultaneous warming of the upper layers of all seven seas over the past 50 years cannot be explained by natural climate variability alone. The scientists’ computer modelling study reveals that human alterations to the environment, such as the observed increases in greenhouse gas, are causing the warming of the world’s oceans , and as an result, affecting the natural climate cycles.

Comments Off on GE Launches First 100 Watt Equivalent LED Bulb Cooled by an Air Pump

GE just announced a new LED light bulb replacement for the 100 watt incandescent that uses pulses of air to keep cool. The design is the first of its kind in the LED industry, and it comes just in the nick of time as the 100 watt incandescent bulb phase-out is on the horizon. The breakthrough hinges upon how the light ‘breathes’, keeping the LED chips from overheating and allowing engineers to pack twice the number of chips into a standard sized bulb.
