According to the Associated Press , nearly 40,000 people in the Spanish province of Catalonia were told go indoors and close their windows after an explosion at a warehouse sent an orange cloud of chemical gas into the air over the region. Now, officials in the region have given a “partial all clear for people to leave their homes,” after the cloud dissipated.

Comments Off on US approves farming of genetically modified apples to reduce food waste

The next wave of GMO food could soon be hitting store shelves in America after the U.S. government approved the planting of genetically modified apple trees.

Israeli alternative energy company Brenmiller Energy has solved one of the biggest issues with solar technology — how to generate electricity when the sun sets.

Biomass will be used as a backup during the four hours when the solar power system is not generating electricity.
