Sustainable Living: Architecture (10/25/12 11:08)

New Mexico residents are trying to a break free from Los Alamos’ nuclear legacy by creating more environmentally sound ways of living. At the forefront of this struggle is renegade architect Michael Reynolds, creator of radically sustainable living options through a process called "Earthship Biotecture."

Food Reserves: Dismally Low (10/18/12 18:39)

For six of the last eleven years the world has consumed more food than it has produced. This year, drought in the United States and elsewhere has put even more pressure on global food supplies than usual. As a result, global food reserves have reached their lowest level in almost 40 years.

Recycling: Cardboard Bicycles (10/18/12 18:24)

A bicycle made almost entirely of cardboard has the potential to change transportation habits from the world's most congested cities to the poorest reaches of Africa.

Air Quality: A Typical City (10/13/12 12:23)

The air New Yorkers breathe--and this is probably not worse than a lot of other cities--is "a bizarre brew" of bacteria, pollen, clothing fiber, fungus, tire rubber, cooking fat, carbon emissions and dead skin cells.

Solar Energy: Concentrator Photovoltaics (10/04/12 16:12)

With concentrator photovoltaics (CPV), a fairly recent technology, almost twice the incident sunlight can be converted into electricity as compared to conventional silicon technology.

Renewables: Edible Packaging (09/26/12 10:45)

A new packaging material--called WikiCells--is an edible skin that takes the place of plastic packaging and protects the food or liquid within.

Hightech: The Next Industrial Revolution (09/24/12 18:15)

3D printers--machines that can assemble molecules into larger pre-designed objects--are pioneering a whole new way of making things. This could well rewrite the rules of manufacturing in much the same way as the rise of personal computing discombobulated the traditional world of computing; argues John Aziz of azizonomics.

Aviation: Planes Of The Future (09/22/12 11:17)

Passenger jets could be chomping on straw or flying on fuel extracted from sawdust in coming years as the search widens for cleaner alternatives to kerosene.

Renewables: Biofuels (09/16/12 18:19)

The European Union plans to trim targets on biofuel use, once seen as a potential source of cheap alternative energy but now widely blamed for soaring food prices.

US Fisheries (09/16/12 18:17)

The US Commerce Department on Thursday declared a national fishery disaster in New England, opening the door for tens of millions of dollars in relief funds for struggling fishermen and their ports.
