Comments Off on UN Climate Panel Cites 95 Percent Certainty that Humans are Responsible For Global Warming

A leaked draft of the  Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ‘s next big climate report finds near unanimous certainty that greenhouse gas emissions from humans are primarily responsible for global warming. While their finding should surprise absolutely nobody, the 95 percent figure is, in fact, five percent higher than the one reached in the IPCC’s 2007 report. The United Nations panel also concludes that if emissions continue unabated, sea levels could rise by more than three feet by the end of the century, threatening major cities such as New York, Miami, London, Shanghai and Sidney.

Comments Off on Gorgeous Ceramic and Wood Cup Designs by Jorge Diego Etienne Keep Liquids at the Perfect Temperature

Here at Inhabitat we love the work of contributor Jorge Diego Etienne  — the designer behind this beautifully simple mug that harnesses natural heating and cooling properties. Working with Casa Bosques  and  Savvy Studio ,  Etienne  produced the Second Object design by taking inspiration from Japanese lacquered cups. The cup is a two-part piece consisting of a minimal hassle-free ceramic container that can hold hot liquid, and an encasing wooden vessel that disperses the heat.

Comments Off on Golany Architects Unveils Plans for Sustainable New Centre for Higher Education in Ashdod, Israel

Israeli design firm Golany Architects recently unveiled plans for the new Centre for Higher Education in Ashdod , the fifth-largest city in Israel. The design of the building is based on colonnades with columns that support the growth of vines, referencing the Mediterranean region’s long tradition of using vine-covered pergolas to escape the heat. The building is enveloped with green walls, which serve the dual function of beautifying the building and making it more heat resistant. The site is surrounded by dense city fabric, and the green wall serves to distinguish it from its immediate urban environment. + Golany Architects The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
