Comments Off on Anti-Expo protests in Milan erupt in violence, clashes with riot police

The May 1 opening of the Milan Expo 2015 architectural show has been marred by violent clashes between a group of protesters and Italian riot police. Reuters reports that “thick clouds of smoke from burning cars filled parts of central Milan” as masked individuals threw rocks and petrol bombs, and law enforcement retaliated with teargas. The wider, student-organized No Expo protests—which have otherwise been nonviolent—are speaking out against the immense cost of the temporary Expo at a time when Italy is facing economic hardship.

Comments Off on Tesla launches pre-owned sales of Model S EV; expects 31% bigger Roadster battery in August

Things at Tesla keeping getting bigger and better. On the evening of April 30, CEO Elon Musk announced details of their Powerwall home battery system , and earlier the same day another, quieter announcement also went out, which falls into the “better” category. Tesla has decided to go into the business of selling “certified pre-owned” vehicles—specifically the Model S EV . This will help get people behind the wheel of a Tesla car who probably couldn’t otherwise afford one, while easing the selling process for those looking to avoid the hassles of a private sale. Tesla’s pre-owned vehicle search page allows car shoppers to filter by geographical location, model, and color to find their next ride, which will come with a 4-year, 50,000-mile limited warranty. The setup is so slick, in fact, that you can “buy” your new Tesla right online, with a $1,000 deposit. In news of the “bigger” variety, Musk also let the world know, via Twitter , that the new Roadster battery would be “likely available in August” of this year. The battery is and it’ll offer 31 percent more power than the current model (70kWh vs. 53kWh). As summer heats up, so will news from Tesla, both on and off the road.

Comments Off on California adopts ambitious goal to slash greenhouse gas emissions 40% by 2030

California has thrown down the gauntlet for the rest of North America when it comes to taking on climate change. Last week, Governor Jerry Brown issued an executive order requiring the state to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030. Called by Brown the most aggressive greenhouse gas reduction target by any government on the continent to date, California’s plan matches the goals of the ever-progressive European Union.
