Comments Off on New Study Reveals the Truth About Wind Turbines and Bird Deaths

Naysayers like to point to wind turbines as brutal bird-killing machines, wiping out huge populations of birds, but new research sheds some new light on the controversy. According to a massive study supported by the American Wind Wildlife Institute, wind turbines account for just 214,000 – 368,000 deaths each year. While any death is something to be avoided, that number is tiny compared to the fatalities from collisions with radio and cell towers, which kill  6.8 million birds every year.

Comments Off on Study Shows Why Global Warming is Adding Ice to the Antarctic

Even though the planet is warming, the sea ice around Antarctica is expanding in the winter. This paradox has stumped scientists, who have struggled to understand why the ice is growing there while ice at the other pole is rapidly melting. In fact, ice in the Antarctic reached an all-time high in 2010 despite that year being one of the hottest ever. Now, scientists have unlocked the mystery, and it all comes back to melting ice.

Comments Off on Carnegie Institution Study Reveals There is Enough Wind Energy to Power the Entire World

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.

Comments Off on Study Reveals That Seagrass Stores More Carbon Than Trees

Seagrass Photo from Shutterstock The destruction of rainforests has long been a huge cause of concern for environmentalists due to trees’ ability to capture carbon — however a new collaborative study published in the journal of Nature Geoscience has found that seagrass can actually store more carbon per square mile than forests can . The plants, which populate coastal wetlands, could play a major role in combating climate change.

All successful venture capitalists know that if you want to make a smart investment , you must take into account all possible factors. With that in mind, it seems that the world of finance is now waking up to the fact that climate change must be considered when it comes to deciding whether investments will have relevance in the future. According to a Mercer survey , 12 institutional investors (who are worth trillions of dollars) now factor climate change into their investment decisions.

Comments Off on Super Greenies: New Study Uncovers Group of Luxury-Loving, Affluent Environmental Activists

A new study by Scarborough has revealed that the greenest people in the United States also happen to be high earners with a taste for luxury. The study calls these individuals the “Super Green,” and they are the 5% of the US population that involves themselves in more than 10 green activities (like composting, recycling and owning reusable shopping bags, among other things). The study uncovered the fact that this subset of the population is more likely to own a home worth over $500K, spend more than $500 a year on cosmetics and clothing and is 49% more likely to buy a luxury vehicle this year. They’re also 178% more likely to have hiked or backpacked and most of them live in the great city of San Francisco.

Comments Off on Another Study Shows Women are Greener Than Men

Women are the greener sex, yet another study reveals . Men travel on carbon-intensive transport more, consume more, and eat more meat than women. Now, the traveling aspect probably has more to do with the fact that there’s still rampant inequality in a business world that continues to be dominated by men than any instinct to engage in dirtier modes of transportation
