The well known Japanese company Toshiba and its perhaps not as well known co-patriate IHI have been tapped to pilot a new ocean energy project that will deploy a phalanx of underwater turbines that float like kites. The project demonstrates once again how legacy companies are transitioning to new clean tech. At a little less […]

The world is on a precipice of a global water crisis. Today, 1.1 billion people struggle to access safe water on a daily basis, and experts say by 2025, this number will increase to three billion. A small company in Massachusetts is using wind to solve the world’s water crisis.
Solar panels that can be dissolved in water could reduce a future waste problem.
The rogue geoengineering experiment off the coast of British Columbia has raised a lot of questions. The experimenters claim they did it to help the salmon fisheries. Critics say the lack of scientific rigor means we won’t learn much from this experiment.
Aquaponics is such a great idea. The fish and vegetables lived in a closed system, which means the water is basically reused over and over. Fish supply nutrients to plants and plants do the same. The space required is minimal, too. At least compared to conventional fish farming and field-raised vegetables.
The USGS is using a new technology to 3-D map urban flooding from Hurricane Isaac. The technology is terrestrial lidar (LIght Detection And Ranging) and it will be used in a few urban areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama to record the extent of the wind and water damage caused by the storm.
Texas Brine Company began drilling near the Louisiana sinkhole on Saturday to determine the cause of the sinkhole. Crosstex Energy, a nearby operator of another storage cavern, submitted a “worst case scenario” report.
A study from the University of Texas found a correlation between injection wells – wells used to dispose of wastewater from hydraulic fracturing – and clusters of small earthquakes.
A luxurious floating resort allows residents to view undersea life while going green.
