Comments Off on Chicago launches rolling library on city L train

Chicago is one of the first America cities to reinvigorate the disappearing pastime of kicking back and reading a good book. Starting last week, the city’s L train became home to a moving library , offering a variety of page-turners to commuters and working on the honor system. Now, instead of seeing passengers burying their nose in their smartphones, locals can observe books back in the hands of readers. Read the rest of Chicago launches rolling library on city L train

Comments Off on INFOGRAPHIC: Which countries are the most energy efficient?

Every year the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy publishes a report revealing the most energy efficient countries in the world. The council looks at the 16 biggest economies and ranks them in terms of transportation, industry, building and national efforts to cut costs. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the US ranks close to the bottom at number 13, while super efficient Germany took the stop slot. Irish energy supplier Jones Oil created an infographic with tons of interesting information about the report – including the reason why China managed to grab the fourth slot in the rankings.

Were comets the source of Earth’s water? Rosetta spacecraft says “no”

Comments Off on Were comets the source of Earth’s water? Rosetta spacecraft says “no”

The Rosetta spacecraft is currently orbiting and exploring comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko—a large mass of rock and ice that it landed the Philae probe on in November —and its newest discovery might give us startling insight about the origin of water on our own planet. It has been discovered that comet’s water contains three times the amount of deuterium than water here on Earth, which throws a wrench into theories that t his planet’s oceans and rivers  may have originated from comets slamming into it during its formation.

When it comes to green furniture design , it doesn’t get much more natural than  Erez Nevi Pana ‘s Soilid Chair , which is made from a mixture of soil, fungi and other natural materials. The materials are measured by volume and weight, mixed together and left to rise overnight at room temperature. The Soilid mixture can then be shaped and molded in a plaster or wood mold to create different shapes.

US Census Reveals the Top 10 US Cities for Mass Transit Commuting

Comments Off on US Census Reveals the Top 10 US Cities for Mass Transit Commuting

The Census Bureau just released a report on the commuting behavior of Americans in 2009. The commuting report is part of the American Community Survey , and it details the average commute time for Americans along with their mode of transportation . Although seven-tenths of Americans living in metro areas reside within 3/4 of a mile of public transit, only 4.9 percent of workers regularly took mass transit to work in 2009. Nine of the ten cities on this list have less than 15% of the population commuting on mass transit . If those are our highest statistics, perhaps Americans need a bit of a mass transit education along with additional infrastructure support.

Comments Off on Loop.pH’s Recycled Cable ‘Faraday Curtain’ Reflects Electromagnetic Fields

Commissioned for Bloomberg Philanthropy by art and design agency Arts Co , ‘Waste Not, Want It’ is a series of specially commissioned art and design projects made almost entirely out of Bloomberg’s waste and presented as part of the 2011 London Design Festival . Design studio Loop.pH ’s ‘Faraday Curtain’ is made from hundreds of meters of discarded electrical cable, stripped of its inner core and conductive shielding and re-threaded into an intricately laced textile mesh. The resultant ephemeral textile enclosure has a soft and sheer surface that shields the interior space from electromagnetic fields. + Loop.pH The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on University of Tokyo Supercomputer Named World’s Greenest

Supercomputers and the environment:  two subjects that are becoming linked more and more these days.  Supercomputers are running algorithms to find solutions to climate change and the government has funded the creation of one supercomputer to be devoted solely to climate change .  Now, it seems the world’s supercomputers are competing to be the greenest, or at least the most efficient.
