In times like these, we need as many tools and games that inspire, educate, and motivate as possible, because there are a metric buttload boatload of issues that we need to move forward on, ranging from basic human rights to deforestation to clean energy and clean water.
My last PlanetSave story ended with an upbeat reference to the coming boom in what is now widely called the new Climate Adaptation Economy, or the fast-growing field of companies providing resilience solutions in the United States and around the world.
I admit, I’m a sucker for ‘charismatic megafauna.‘ I mean, that’s the whole point, right? Charismatic megafauna are those key species that are more gigantic, more adorable, or somehow seen as more ‘save-able.’ I mean, how can you not fall in love with this little guy: But I also also understand the importance of a […] Saving Endangered Lemurs in Madagascar with Wildlife Conservation Society and CoolEffect was originally posted on: PlanetSave.
Instead of producing solar power on one site, and purifying water on another, and growing food on yet another piece of land, it might be possible to do all three on the same site, which would enable true local sustainability.
A warming climate may drive more rainfall in tropical areas, thanks to a decrease in high tropical cloud cover, which in turn may further warm the air, according to new research.
Food waste is a huge global issue, with up to one-third of all global food supply being thrown away. These 5 food waste apps will help you reduce your waste at home or for your business.
It was, no doubt, incomprehensible for the U.S. to begin the process of pulling out of the UN Paris Climate Agreement, for all the reasons widely reported since President Donald Trump made the fateful announcement June 1st.
California Governor Jerry Brown this week signed an agreement with China's Minister of Science and Technology that will strengthen ties between the two and increase cooperation on the development of green technology.
The connection between the related systems in our life, known as the food, energy, and water Nexus– is key to a more sustainable future.
If tree-climbing goats themselves don't seem very interesting, consider that their actions are directly related to one of the world's currently most popular bodycare ingredients, argan oil, and that these tree-climbing caprine creatures help replant argan forests by spitting out the seeds with their cud.
It was with a great degree of curiosity that we explored EV charging experiences and needs by type of EV and region for our latest EV report.
One of the more interesting things for me in our annual EV surveys is how much people want various special features — auto lane change, all-wheel drive, superfast charging, fast charging, etc.
How much range do people need? Various studies have jumped into this topic, but I don't recall seeing anyone survey electric car drivers themselves.
Even that title looks like a looming disaster for Audi. It's like when Lionel Messi takes on several opponents at once as if that would make it fair ...
I gave a presentation in March in Amsterdam (Holland) at EV-Box's first annual rEVolution summit. When creating my presentation, I decided to dive into a theme that I've been increasingly compelled to present on — how do you communicate electric transport to "outsiders" in the most effective way?
Wave power could be one of the world’s most abundant source of renewable energy, as oceans cover more than 70% of the earth’s surface and hold onto a large amount of energy.
CleanTechnica surveyed more than 2,000 electric car drivers in 26 European countries, 49 of 50 US states, and 9 Canadian provinces to find out what early electric car adopters require and desire from their next electric cars and from EV charging networks.
With over 100,000 reservations logged in under 24 hours — before the car was even unveiled — it doesn’t take six polls to uncover which electric car tops the list of “expected next EV model.” Nonetheless, the Tesla Model 3 didn’t single-handedly account for the majority of answers for that question, and seeing the precise “future car” split according to 6 six very different EV-driving groups is fascinating.
Last week, we published CleanTechnica's new, 93-page electric car and driver report. For the report, we surveyed over 2,000 electric car drivers living in 28 countries (26 European countries, 49 of 50 US states, and 9 Canadian provinces).
One of the challenges of the current EV market is extreme lack of choice. There are only a few widely available models, and even if you look in the most popular markets (California, Norway, etc.), EV models only account for a small percentage of all the vehicle classes.
