Bill McKibben: ‘Pace is the most important variable right now in fighting climate change’ Climate change is a complex, interconnected and existential crisis. How we talk about it — the stories we tell, the facts we share, and the language we use — can make the difference between action and paralysis, hope and despair. In this conversation, Bill McKibben, author, activist and storyteller who has helped shape the climate movement, will illuminate the importance of getting the climate story right, and the danger of confusing effective narratives with effective action.  This session was held at GreenBiz Group’s VERGE 20, October 26-30, 2020.

LED Headlights Can Extend EV Range by Six Miles

Comments Off on LED Headlights Can Extend EV Range by Six Miles

As automakers start churning out electric vehicles, some features that help boost the car’s range have become permanent necessities — things like regenerative braking and lightweight materials.  Now, it seems LED headlights will need to be added to that list. According to bulb manufacturer Osram Sylvania, replacing halogen bulbs with LEDs in electric vehicles can add six miles to their range.  Far more efficient LEDs draw less than 25 percent of the energy that halogen bulbs do, and in a car that depends solely on battery power for its range, that makes a nice difference.  Six miles may not seem like much, but all EV owners would be grateful for six more miles to find a charging station on a long trip or six miles may make the difference between making the roundtrip to work or not for some people.

Comments Off on The Car: An Anatomical Journey (VIDEO)

I stumbled across this video that was posted on Hyundai ‘s Web site that shows its 2010 Genesis being disassembled.

Since I wrote yesterday about how pets pollute more than cars , my curiousity was piqued regarding just how much CO2 is emitted producing the average automobile, so I ventured to find out–and in so doing, discovered some other interesting facts about ..
