How IBM is using big data to fix Beijing’s pollution crisis - Quartz

by sbrothier
Of China’s major cities, Beijing’s pollution problem is probably the worst, causing thousands of premature deaths every year. Its residents are fed up. The growing outrage has forced leaders to declare a “war on pollution,” including the goal of slashing Beijing’s PM2.5— the concentration of the particles that pose the greatest risk to human health—by 25% by 2017. The Beijing municipal government will earmark nearly 1 trillion yuan ($160 billion) to meet that target. +

The solar panels of the future could be grown from bacteria - Quartz

by sbrothier
One day we could have conductive materials that grow, evolve, and self-repair. Researchers at MIT have taken the first steps to creating them. A new study (paywall) describes “living materials” that combine bacterial cells with nonliving materials that can conduct electricity and emit different colors of light. The study is just a proof-of-concept, but researchers say that future applications could include cheaper, more efficient solar panels and biosensors.

ミライニホン | MIRAI NIHON Project

by sbrothier
We designed a house called "MIRAI NIHON" where technology and nature coexist with people and enable a 100% off-grid life. To make this happen, we collaborated with more than 20 companies to provide new technologies and inventions that bring the concept to life, and that have not yet been commercialized. Then we 'launched' the house as a product, making it available for sale.

Home: Powering A Nation.org

by sbrothier & 1 other
"Coal: A Love Story" explores our modern culture’s complicated relationship with coal. Almost half of the nation's electricity is generated from the burning of coal. Despite the fact that we rely on electricity for nearly everything we do, few of us are aware of how it is generated. Whether we like it or not, we are in a complicated relationship with coal for the foreseeable future.

Volkswagen. Le côté obscur. | Greenpeace

by sbrothier
Notre planète – la Terre – est en danger. Volkswagen s’oppose à deux lois européennes stratégiques pour la protection du climat : la revalorisation de l’objectif de réduction des émissions, et l’adoption de normes plus strictes en matière de performance énergétique des véhicules. Sans ces mesures, la Terre connaîtra le même sort que la planète Aldérande : elle sera détruite par l’Étoile Noire. Mais tout n’est pas perdu. Nous sentons que la force accompagne Volkswagen.

Parti le 20 juillet, ce van électrique a parcouru 13 000 kilomètres en 3 mois et 9 jours, sans intervention humaine et sans consommer de carburant.
