December 8th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

One of the hardest things about getting more people to adopt electric vehicles is the learning curve. For those of us who own EVs and have for a while, it's easy to take for granted what it takes to operate one. You have to know how to charge, where to charge, and you have to know that charging at home is even possible

October 14th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

Salvatore Pais, of the US Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division (NAWCAD), claims to have invented a compact fusion reactor. With a size of between 0.3 and 2 meters (1 foot to 6.5 feet), the patent claims that the device could generate between a gigawatt and a terawatt, while needing far less energy input than it produces


An Immense Source Of Clean, Efficient Energy Might Lie At The Edge Of The Solar System

September 30th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

Actually using a black hole for something other than mass destruction may sound farfetched, but in 2016, Stephen Hawking figured that a black hole with the mass of a mountain could provide for all of humanity's energy needs. Considering that a black hole of 5 Earth masses is around the size of an orange, one as massive as a mountain would be minuscule


Trump Betrays Conservative Principles To Attack California, Tesla, & EVs

September 24th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

Now that the legal battle between the Trump Administration and California over emissions standards is underway, we can get a good look “under the hood” at the legal arguments and strategies each side is using. Parties arguing in court will always do whatever it takes to support their own agenda, but this legal battle is particularly instructive


What “Storm Area 51” Can Teach Us About Climate Change

September 19th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

It started out innocently enough. A college student was up late looking at absurd things on Facebook. After seeing a Facebook event planning the theft of “all of Minnesota’s 10,000 lakes,” David Montero decided he wanted to make something even more ridiculous, just for fun. He quickly put together “Storm Area 51, They Can't Stop All of Us,” and went to bed

Knowledge transfer between academia and industry has the potential to affect a lot of change for a small off-grid solar company like M-KOPA Solar, a Kenya-based company and 2015 recipient of the Zayed Future Energy Prize. This is why Harini Hewa Dewage joined M-KOPA Labs, the research branch of M-KOPA, in November of 2016 as its battery technology specialist

After 18 weeks of preparation, Bollinger's team has its two new prototype designs almost ready for next month's unveiling, on September 26. The first vehicle, the B1, is an SUV, not unlike a classic Ford Bronco. The B2, a similar design, has a pickup truck bed instead of an enclosed


Small Towns Across The US Are Trading The Environment For Revenue

August 26th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

In the largest such study to date, Governing Magazine took a hard look at revenues from traffic fines. The authors found that an alarming number of local governments are "dangerously dependent on punitive fines and fees." Governing focused on the precarious financial situation this leaves these municipalities in, and that's no joke, but it's also important to look at the ways in which these unethical practices affect the environment

A few days ago, I woke up to an interesting notification on my phone. It was from the Burger King app, and the company wanted me to taste test the Impossible Whopper. To make it a fair test (and one that enough people would want to take a chance on), the app offered a special deal: one regular beef Whopper and one Impossible Whopper for $

August 10th, 2019 | by Jennifer Sensiba

A shop in Quebec is fixing up older Nissan LEAFs and giving them around 150 miles of range. Compared to the 80 or so miles of range they came with from the factory, and the much lower ranges many have after degradation, this is a huge improvement. Swap services will be available both in their shop or using an upcoming DIY kit
