Comments Off on The world is on target to get 26 percent of energy from renewables by 2020

Renewable energy is growing! With the advent of more affordable technology and increased political pressure on clean sources of energy, it’s no surprise to learn that renewable energy is on the rise on a global scale. A new report projects that, by the year 2020, some 26 percent of the world’s energy will come from renewable sources. Considering that just a few decades ago, there was very little renewable energy in play, this will be a landmark achievement when the time comes. Powering over one-quarter of the Earth with renewable energy sources demonstrates a rate of growth unprecedented in other energy industries, and inspires a lot of hope for the decades to come. This news is, in very technical terms, incredibly darn awesome. Read the rest of The world is on target to get 26 percent of energy from renewables by 2020

Florida governor declares state of emergency as Tropical Storm Erika approaches

Comments Off on Florida governor declares state of emergency as Tropical Storm Erika approaches

The National Weather Service has reported that Tropical Storm Erika is “wobbling” its way toward the Bahamas. We know what you’re thinking: storms don’t wobble, so that can’t be good. And you’d be right. Forecasters are perplexed by the trajectory of this particular storm because she just isn’t behaving the way most tropical storms historically have in the that part of the world. Erika is expected to hit landfall in the Bahamas this weekend, and may be headed for Florida early next week – but if this wobbling continues, all that could change.

FLAP is Making Canada’s Buildings Safer for Birds

Comments Off on FLAP is Making Canada’s Buildings Safer for Birds

It’s estimated that between 1 and 10 migratory birds die per building, per year… and in an average city, that means a lot of bird deaths . Toronto alone has over 950,000 registered buildings, which together post a threat to over 9 million birds annually, and a recent research article found that somewhere between 100 million and 1 billion migrating birds die from colliding with buildings in North America each year. FLAP (Fatal Light Awareness Program) is aiming to change that, by ensuring that new buildings have bird-friendly glass installed, and older buildings are retrofitted with it.
