Comments Off on It’s raining tequila from a cloud in Berlin

Berlin winters see a lot of rain, but this is the first time it’s rained tequila. The Mexico Tourist Board wanted to lure Germans to Mexico by combining one of the things they hate most: rain , with one of the things they love best: tequila. The result is a puffy cloud of happiness that rains tequila any time it rains outside. The Mexico Tourist Board teamed up with Lapiz USA to create a cloud that rains tequila. Lapiz took ultrasonic humidifiers to turn tequila into a mist, which they shot into the air to create a tequila-based cloud. Once that mist condensed, it created droplets of tequila that you can actually collect and drink. It’s an ingenious way to turn the winter blahs in Germany into a party.

Warmer weather expected to ruin fall colors

Comments Off on Warmer weather expected to ruin fall colors

Revelers in the vibrant, colorful leaves that come along with the first few weeks of fall may find themselves disappointed this year. The northeastern region of the U.S. known for its colorful change of seasons is also anticipating drier conditions and warmer weather. These elements are said to create a recipe for a delayed and short-lived foliage display. The first half of autumn is going to be dry and warm in the northeast, according to Accuweather . The trees that depend on certain cues to start their color change and leaf die-off processes will likely receive those cues much later than usual. “The trees will probably be too dry and the vibrant colors won’t come out,” Accuweather forecaster Paul Pastelok said. “If they do come out, they’ll be short-lived and probably knocked down too fast to be enjoyed.” Related: Unchecked global warming could bring the worst hurricanes ever seen by the end of this century The shift should come as no surprise, seeing as July was the hottest month on record and the 10th consecutive hottest month in a row, according to NASA. The agency also warns that the planet is warming up at a rate that is “ unprecedented in the last 1,000 years.” A delayed fall foliage spectacle is both a bummer and indicative of worsening trends to come.

Comments Off on Walmart forced to remove “Made in the U.S.A.” label from website

Walmart has removed “Made in the U.S.A” logos from online product listings after an Federal Trade Commission (FTC) investigation and accusations of consumer deception. Watchdog group Truth in Advertising issued a report this summer saying it found over 100 examples of e-commerce items labeled with Walmart’s “Made in the U.S.A.” logo that weren’t actually made in America or were misleading. After the mega retailer scrubbed its site of U.S.-origin claims, the FTC has decided not to continue its investigation. READ MORE>

Comments Off on New data shows a solar system is installed every 2.5 minutes in the U.S.

The year 2014 was a record-breaking one for the solar power industry around the world, and here in the U.S. we were installing new solar systems at a rate faster than ever before. New data from GTM Research shows a new solar system was powered on every 2.5 minutes last year—which is, if nothing else a huge leap from past numbers, such as one system installed every two hours in 2004.

New report shows how the U.S. can drastically reduce carbon emissions by 2050 – if it wants to!

Comments Off on New report shows how the U.S. can drastically reduce carbon emissions by 2050 – if it wants to!

The Deep Decarbonization Pathways Project (DDPP) just released a preliminary, technical report that shows how the United States can cut its greenhouse gas emissions to 80 percent of 1990 levels by 2050 – provided the political will is there. Such a drastic cut is necessary in order to achieve the internationally agreed target of no more than a 2°C (3.6°F) increase on global mean surface temperature compared to pre-industrial levels. The report also uses very conservative measurements to conclude that it would only take around one percent of GDP per annum to achieve this outcome.
