Electric cars are rising in popularity as more people seek out eco-friendly vehicles that don’t guzzle gas.
Most electric vehicles (EVs) today rely on lithium ion batteries to power them. But emerging solid state battery technology could provide a safer, more powerful replacement.
Let’s take a look under the hood and compare these two battery types vying to be at the heart of the EV revolution.
Are you looking for a new kitchen appliance that can cook food to crispy perfection without all the oil? Look no further than the air fryer.
These small countertop cooking appliances use hot air to cook food and circulate it around the food using a heating element and fan. This results in food that is crispy like fried food but with little to no oil.
But how much electricity do air fryers use? And what are the benefits of using one?
In this post, I’ll answer those questions and recommend some of the best air fryers on the market.
The city of the future is a vision of urban development that is sustainable, smart, and equitable. It’s a city that is designed to accommodate growing populations while also minimizing its impact on the environment.
As urbanization continues to increase around the world, the importance of sustainable and smart urban development cannot be overstated.
In this article, using examples from around the world, we’ll explore the exciting future of cities.
As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to grow and change the way we live, work and communicate, it’s only natural that we start to question the environmental impact of these technologies.
ChatGPT, an advanced language model developed by OpenAI, is no exception.
In this blog post, we’ll dive into the energy consumption of AI models, the commitment of OpenAI to sustainability, and the expected impact of ChatGPT on the environment.
As cities continue to grow and expand, urban planners and policymakers are beginning to realize the importance of incorporating food production into their planning efforts.
Urban agriculture, the practice of growing food in an urban environment, is becoming increasingly popular as a way to address issues such as food security, community development and environmental sustainability.
In this article, we’ll take a look at how cities around the world are incorporating urban agriculture into their planning efforts, and what the future of urban food production might look like.
Do electric boats exist?
Yes, they do. And they are rapidly growing in popularity.
This is because they are quiet, more efficient and don’t produce any harmful emissions.
Electric boats are also coming down in price and charging facilities are becoming more readily available.
The Covid-19 pandemic that started over a year ago has had a tremendous impact on our lives so far. We all got affected either by the disease or hardships it caused in everyday life. So did numerous businesses and industries. However, some sectors, such as the automotive, while suffering losses on one hand, also saw significant changes which led to positive results, especially for the environment.
What is a rooftop garden?
No surprise here. A rooftop garden is exactly what it sounds like, a garden that happens to be on a roof. Sometimes this means flowers and shrubs or even a vegetable, herb or fruit garden.
Humans have been gardening on the roofs of structures for centuries dating back to the ziggurats of Mesopotamia (600 BC). While the practice is not new, as urbanization has swept the globe, more and more people are looking for ways to reduce their ecological footprint, maximize space, and to add some natural beauty to their homes.
Whatever the reason, rooftop gardening offers a ton of benefits.
2020 is here, which means the UK target to recycle 50% of our waste is closing in.
In 2017, we recycled 44.3%, which showed our growth of just 3.9% in the last five years. It’s only been until very recently that many people were aware that we might not reach this particular target, and realised the actual importance of recycling. It cannot be stressed enough that we should be doing things daily to become greener and to reduce our carbon footprint.
So why has it taken us this long to promote sustainable plans and products? And why are the vast majority of people still not listening?
And it still shocks me when I look back on that time.
Let me explain.
In those days, it was taken for granted that motorbikes, cars and trucks were all noisy and highly polluting vehicles.
Everywhere these vehicles went, they left a trail of dangerous pollutants that filled our town and cities. Even schools were caught up in this onslaught, with parents regularly idling their cars while waiting or dropping off their kids.
