Since Rolls Royce unveiled the electric 102EX Phantom at the Geneva Motor Show, 2011, this electric car has received rather lukewarm response from wealthier customers of Phantom around the world. They are apparently apprehensive about its range and not willing to wait for an eight hour charging. Although industry experts and automotive writers are quiet happy with its performance, the electric luxury will never make it to production.

In case you may wonder that these guys are wearing mouse pads on the t-shirts, you might be misunderstood about new green power technological gadgets by Orange. This is the new technology of orange UK, and it should be known as something which will help you to charge your mobile phone. It does so using piezoelectric with the absorption of vibration from sound. I am going out on a limb here and guess that the white pads on the belly are sound sponges. I would also imagine that this technology is highly effective if you are in the front row of a concert. Yes, now you can text and take pic all you want while the deep bass powers your mobile device.
No more patience, because time has come to start a war against all the pollution creating acts of human kinds and take our first step inside the battlefield by using Green-aid grenade shopping bags. Declare a war on plastic! By now you know that using a re-usable shopping bag is the responsible thing to do… have fun and make a statement while doing so! Unzip and pull the bag out from its neoprene grenade cover when needed! When you done just tuck the bag back into its cover.
At Google, the investments in green energy mean to invest for innovations and large scale clean energy projects which should become the major project source in the future. To speed up the development and innovations, Google has put significant funding and resources along with new technologies. Google has invested more than $915 million till today in renewable energy sector, including the power projects which will generate 1.8 GW of power, which will be enough to power 35,000 homes in United States. Here is a closer look at investments by Google for Clean Green energy.
If you’re our loyal reader you should remember amazing eco concept of Vincent Callebaut – Lilypad. But Vincent continues to pump out amazing concepts of futuristic eco systems. This time inspired by the organic form of coral he has created utopian eco villages for 1,000 Haitian families affected in 2010 by an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale. This village has been named the Coral reef eco village.
Built upon seismic piers off the coast of the mainland, the prefabricated, modular units can be fit into a wave-like matrix as space is needed. Each family would have a plot of land to grow their own food. A canyon flows between two rows of housing and is filled with a tropical ecosystem for the local fauna and the flora.
The turtle nesting beach of Florida is facing many unnatural and natural threats and forty percent of the beaches have been classified as eroded from natural causes. Dallas Light Bulb is leading manufacturer in consumer lighting products.
Dallas has started to offer selling Halco LED amber colored light bulbs to hotels in Miami Beach, Florida, in the hopes that they can meet the standards for Turtle Light Certification. The amber light is being used instead of traditional, white light to combat turtle nesting and hatchling issues which are usually due to artificial lights fixed on the beaches.
Eco tourism is although a new emerging field in Africa, its growth in Kenya has been little short of spectacular. In the past five years, some of the world’s most pioneering and promising community tourism projects have been launched here, a new breed of safari camps has grown up using state-of-the-art environmental technologies, and initiatives helping local communities to benefit from their natural resources have launched a ‘green revolution’ in many of the country’s wildlife-rich tribal lands.
In 1997, first time Kenyan Eco-tourism industry drew the attention of world when the now-famous community lodge at Il’ Ngwesi was a runner-up in British Airways’ prestigious Tourism for Tomorrow awards. In the four years since, two other properties – Tortilis Camp in Amboseli and OlDonyoWuas in the Chyulu Hills – have also been honoured in the awards. IL’ Ngwesi has gone on to become a model for community tourism projects across Africa.
So when the United Nations Environment Programme last year elected Nairobi as the venue for the International Year of Ecotourism African Conference, it all made perfect eco-sense. Staged as part of the UN’s 2002 Year of Ecotourism, the March 20-22 conference will bring together a broad variety of ecotourism experts and practitioners for three days of presentations, discussions and field trips that aim to improve local practices and information sharing. Together with five other regional conferences, the findings and recommendations of the Nairobi forum will be presented to the world’s first Ecotourism Summit in Quebec on May 19th – allowing Kenya’s best ecotourism practices and ideas to be heard around the world.
Considering the Go Green technology and getting out cars to be electric, I guess it was only a matter of time before planes also gone electric. NASA has currently sponsored a CAFÉ green Flight challenge and Elektra One is the PC-aero entry, a single-seat aircraft and it has completed its first flight of 500 meters high and quickly landed on the ground. Elektra one has been powered with powerful electric batteries which make it capable to fly fast and land quickly when batteries are near to end the charging. On its second flight, Elektra one stayed in the air for about half hour.
Everyone around the earth is going around a crusade these days to adopt the go green phenomena and save our environment and conserved natural life. After all, there not much of ecosystem of our planet that left or remained behind. Woolly pockets are soft-sided, breathable and made from 100% recycled plastic bottles in United States. You can create a living painting or a whole living wall by hanging one Wally Three or a whole gang. Simply use the hardware that is included with your Wally to hang – then plant herbs, tropical, succulents, natives or any of your favorite plants! Hanging the Wally Three is as simple as hanging a painting, and attaches easily to wood, concrete, masonry and chain link.
Thermeleon tiles are energy solution because they turn white when there is enough heat to turn the roof cool and change their color to black when it is enough cold inside the room and required to absorb the light and warm inside the room. These prototype roof tiles will turn their color as per required for energy absorbing or avoiding when it is outside.
This isthe reason of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) graduates has won the third annual MIT MADMEC (Making and Designing Materials Engineering Contest) by demonstrating their thermally-activated, color-changing, roofing material called “Thermeleon” (as in chameleon).
