Study Finds Emissions From Fossil-Fuel Burning Vehicles Are World’s Fastest-Growing Cause of Premature Death

Comments Off on Study Finds Emissions From Fossil-Fuel Burning Vehicles Are World’s Fastest-Growing Cause of Premature Death

Hung Chung Chih / Shutterstock.com Cars are dangerous, but not only because they’re made of several tons of glass and steel, and move at high speeds through densely populated areas. A recent study found that tailpipe emissions are responsible for millions of premature deaths in rapidly expanding countries like China and India. Cars in these countries aren’t subject to the same air quality restrictions they are in Europe and the U.S., and that has led researchers to call vehicle exhaust the fastest-growing cause of death in the world.

Comments Off on Study Finds Majority of Pork to be Contaminated with Bacteria

A recent study has shown that pork  is the  most contaminated  meat found on the market. The Consumer Reports study tested variations of the meat after being processed, revealing the majority of pork chops and ground pork to contain high levels of bacteria associated with food poisoning. As if the presence of bacteria wasn’t enough, the tests also showed that many of the strains are antibiotic-resistant.

‘Under the Canopy’ Creates a Peaceful Meeting Place Amidst Manchester’s Dunham Massey Gardens

Comments Off on ‘Under the Canopy’ Creates a Peaceful Meeting Place Amidst Manchester’s Dunham Massey Gardens

Under the Canopy is a low-impact and sustainable pavilion designed and built for the National Trust’s Dunham Massey Gardens . Conceived by students from the Manchester School of Architecture , the pavilion is composed of three lightweight arch structures that create a gentle focal point for the surrounding canopy of trees. Located in the heart of a conservation garden, the designers aimed to demonstrate the beauty of sustainable design. The frames are assembled from a flat pack kit of parts that are tessellated onto locally sourced FSC plywood sheets and fixed together off site. This minimizes material wastage and results in a light and open space that maximizes light in the enclosed surroundings. With the generous support of wood donors, ‘Under the Canopy’ was completed for under £300, and stands as an exemplar for what can be achieved with a low budget and an environmentally friendly agenda. + Under the Canopy The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on Carnegie Institution Study Finds There Is Enough Wind Power To Meet Global Energy Demand

Californian Wind Farm Photo via Shutterstock A study from Carnegie Institution for Science, led by Kate Marvel of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has revealed that there is enough wind power to meet all of the world’s energy demands. The US team say that with the help of airborne wind turbines —those that convert steadier and faster high-altitude winds into energy—the planet would be able to generate even more power than with ground- and ocean-based units alone.
