Comments Off on Climate Change Blamed for Alarming Increases in Ocean Acidity

The effects of climate change seems to know no bounds: new research shows carbon emissions have dramatically increased the acidity of our oceans to the point where our entire food web is at risk of collapsing. In a recent report to the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), scientists said the ocean’s acidity level has gone up 26 percent in the past 200 years, since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution . According to Phys.org , that increase in acidity directly mirrors the proportion of carbon dioxide oceans have been absorbing ever since humans started burning massive amounts of fossil fuels for energy.

If you’re loony about lunar events, you’ll be excited to hear that there’s a blood moon rising tonight – or early Wednesday morning to be exact. Blood moons are caused by light reflecting off the Earth’s surface during a full moon eclipse – and the one taking place in the wee hours of Wednesday morning is the second of four eclipses happening this year. According to NPR , the eclipse will be visible across North America – but will be seen best by those in the central and western parts of the continent. Read on for the best time to turn your eyes to the sky to catch this cosmic event.

The Natural Symphony Housing Project Conceptualizes Self-Sustainability in Architecture

Comments Off on The Natural Symphony Housing Project Conceptualizes Self-Sustainability in Architecture

    Designed by  Cristian Ferrera Architecture , “Natural Symphony” is an exploration of architectural sustainability, with a prototype designed to house four people per unit. Centered around a large prism-shaped space for common use, there are stairs and elevators that spread out towards the individual units, with decks between each of the nine levels. On the outside, cells harness wind energy through tubular conduits, while solar photovoltaic cells cover the roof. These two energy sources can provide up to 50 percent of the housing system’s energy needs, and there are also areas intended for rainwater collection to be used in greywater systems . This project was recently selected to be featured at the  International Architecture Biennale in Argentina  this November, 2014. + Cristian Ferrera Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
