Why Are Tourist Airplanes So Loud?

October 16th, 2019 | by Nicolas Zart

After an 11-day hike around Zion Canyon, Brice Canyon, and the Grand Canyon, one thing became clear. Why are tourist parks and monument aviation so loud? We need quieter and cleaner electric mobility


Climate Catastrophe Will Bring War & Unprecedented Immigration — Already Is

October 12th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Global warming and climate change get a lot of attention -- well, not in the mainstream media, but among niche media outlets like CleanTechnica. However, whether in the mainstream media or in niche publications, some of the big challenges of a quickly changing climate are not often highlighted, and I'm quite confident that most people haven't considered them at all


There’s 1 Group Of People Not At All Surprised By Donald Trump Letting Turkey Massacre US Allies

October 10th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

It's a shame — you've got a poor economy almost completely dependent on one industry (the oil industry) that is controlled by corrupt oligarchs, and that country's totally corrupt president is apparently running foreign policy for what is supposed to be the most powerful nation on earth. It's like a privileged, educated 20-year-old with kind and thoughtful parents who has fallen under the spell (or control) of a nasty, corrupt, immoral, drug-addicted street thug


Hurricane Florence Is Part Of What Al Gore Got Right In An Inconvenient Truth

September 14th, 2018 | by Michael Barnard

As Hurricane Florence surges ashore in the Carolinas, it's worth casting our minds back a dozen years to An Inconvenient Truth. Al Gore and his documentary crew attempted to mobilize the world around the imminent and pressing challenge of global warming then and since. His messages included the threat of increased severity and frequency of Atlantic hurricanes, something which is looking more and more prescient over the past few years of unusual storms


China Laughing As The Donald Hands It The World

June 2nd, 2017 | by Zachary Shahan

One of the first articles I published after the US presidential election in November was this one: "How China (+ Russia) Could Shift USA From #1 To #2 (Or Lower), Via Trump Naivety." From that article

May 19th, 2017 | by Joshua S Hill

Out of horrible situations can come stories which are slightly less horrible. The UN Refugee Agency revealed this week that the Azraq refugee camp in Jordan, home to 36,000 Syrian refugees fleeing unimaginable horror, is now being powered by solar energy, and will be able to supply solar power to all refugees by early next year.


Middle East Rainfall Fell To 1/5 Modern Levels 120,000 Years Ago (& 10,000 Years Ago As Well) — Implications For Anthropogenic Climate Change

April 4th, 2017 | by James Ayre

Rainfall levels in the Middle East fell to nearly one-fifth of modern levels around 120,000 years ago, and again around 10,000 years ago, according to new research. To put that in different terms, the Middle East at those times experienced a degree of drought that hasn't been seen in modern or historical times (in the region)


3 Reasons Even Trump Supporters Should Love Sustainability

April 3rd, 2017 | by Scott Cooney

There's a lot of great news these days about innovations and projects that are moving our society forward toward a sustainable future. There's also a lot of bad news out there about the damage we are doing. Sustainability shouldn't be political, but let's face it, it is. While one (I, for instance) might argue that we all should want a world free of biologically hazardous chemicals and human-produced climate-altering gases, one (I) can also understand that, to get there, some people's economic interests will be, shall we say, not optimized. Change is never easy
