Comments Off on Amsterdam is out of bicycle parking spaces, so it’s building 40,000 more

You know your bike culture is strong when people are having a hard time finding a place to park their rides – and that’s just what’s happening in Amsterdam right now. The Dutch city is having a hard time finding room for the 880,000 bikes that travel – and park – along its canals. In an effort to deal with the problem, Amsterdam is planning to create 40,000 new bike parking spaces by 2030.

Comments Off on Local and State Governments Sue BP for Deepwater Horizon Clean Up Costs and Economic Losses

Last we heard from BP , the oil giant had agreed to pay $4.5 billion  in penalties for its role in the Deepwater Horizon blowout that spewed oil into the Gulf of Mexico for several months in 2010. But that could be just the beginning for BP, as the company has just been hit with a new $34 billion claim from local and state governments to account for economic losses related to the gusher. BP has already paid out about $58 billion for the environmental disaster, and the latest blow could bring that total above $90 billion.

Comments Off on Almost One-Third Of British Front Gardens Are Now Parking Spaces

British Street Scene Photos from Shutterstock A report published by the RAC Foundation (an independent motoring organization) states that almost a third of the front gardens at 20.8 million UK homes have have been turned into driveways. This means that almost 7 million homes have had the conversion, which means an area equivalent to around 100 Hyde Parks has been concreted over. This growing trend has led to increased flooding issues, and poses a threat to British wildlife.

If you aren’t familiar with parklets, it’s when businesses turn the parking spaces outside their storefront into pleasant public seating areas. Walk down Valencia Street in the Mission District and you’ll see at least five, and a lot more are popping up around the city.
