Comments Off on Raw, Unprocessed Cotton Can Be Used to Clean Up Oil Spills

As long as industry and infrastructure relies on oil to function, there will be spills . Cleaning up such disasters, like the recent Mayflower, Arkansas rupture, can be costly and time consuming. Even the chemicals that are used to disperse and absorb the crude can be dangerous to the environment, and researchers have long been looking for greener alternatives. A new study finds that raw, unprocessed cotton may be a cheaper and safer way to soak up oil than synthetics.

Comments Off on Fabio Servolo’s Drip LED Lamp Subtly Urges Users to Save Electricity

The Drip LED Lamp designed by Italian designer Fabio Servolo is cleverly shaped as a tap and a faucet. Rather than being switched on, it is turned on exactly like a tap – by rotating the handle. The design draws a connection between the precious resources of water and energy , encouraging users to conserve energy rather than letting it ‘go down the drain.’ Read the rest of Fabio Servolo’s Drip LED Lamp Subtly Urges Users to Save Electricity Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: Conserve Electricity , Drip Lamp , Fabio Servolo , Faucet Lamp , green lamp , italian design , LED , Power Conservation , Recycled Materials , Spreading Awareness

Comments Off on San Onofre Nuclear Plant Investigation Finds Leaky Pipe Held Together With Tape, Plastic Bags, Broom Handles

As Japan’s Fukushima nuclear disaster demonstrated, no nuclear plant is ever completely safe. In January 2012, the San Onofre nuclear generating station (SONGS) in Southern California was closed due to the discovery of a radiation leak and other damaged components. It has now been over a year, and Southern California Edison (SCE), which operates the station, has asked the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for permission to bring the plant back online. Unfortunately for them, a shocking photograph published by local ABC affiliate 10 News has cast doubt over whether SCE’s request should be granted. The image, taken almost a year after the plant’s closure, shows a leaky pipe being held together with masking tape, plastic bags and broom handles.
