Dirty lies: how the car industry hid the truth about diesel emissions

The ‘Dieselgate’ scandal was suppressed for years – while we should have been driving electric cars. By Beth GardinerJohn German had not been looking to make a splash when he commissioned an examination of pollution from diesel cars back in 2013. The exam compared what came out of their exhausts, during the lab tests that were required by law, with emissions on the road under real driving conditions.

Electric Planes

https://www.vox.com/2019/3/1/18241489/electric-batteries-aircraft-climate-change The y-axis also shows what would happen to fuel prices if a $100-per-ton carbon tax were imposed. Electric airliners would only be as clean as the electricity that charges them, so pricing carbon would be one way to ensure that they aren’t trading emissions from jet wash for emission from a smokestack.Taken together, this means it will likely be decades before you can book a flight powered solely by elect...

Deadly air in our cities: the invisible killer

Traffic pollution is putting our children at risk. We meet campaigners – many of them concerned mothers – fighting backIn the winter you can taste and smell the pollution,” says Kylie ap Garth, drinking coffee in a cafe in Hackney, east London. “My eldest is eight and he has asthma. Being outside, he would have a tight chest and cough. I just assumed it was the cold weather. I didn’t realise there was a link to the cars.”She is not exaggerating. The main road from Bethnal Green tube station is c...

Eclipse by Rosetti guitar strings review

We recently got our hands on some of Rosetti’s Eclipse strings to see how these slinky strings measure up. Spoiler alert: They’re pretty good. The nice people at Rosetti were kind enough to send us a set of their Eclipse strings for electric and acoustic guitars. We tested them out to see how they feel and what they sound like. I tried their 9-42 thickness, nickel roundwound electric guitar strings. The strings are incredibly slick to the touch with a slinkiness that makes playing on th...

Green for the Common Man

By Douglas L. Faulkner, “The Cleantech Conservative” & Gerard J. Ostheimer, Ph.D. Special to the Digest           Out of the climate change cacophony, two notes that ring true for us are:  1) No climate fixes can be made without improving the lives of those in distressed rural areas; and, 2) Bio-based fuels and chemicals are needed to spur de-carbonization of the transportation sector. The much publicized “Green New Deal” introduced recently as House Resolution 109 started off on the right foot...

Nate Wooley Explores a Frozen Interior on 'Columbia Icefield'

None Columbia Icefield by Nate Wooley Trumpeter/composer Nate Wooley takes a "Romantic" approach to his latest album, Columbia Icefield. An encounter with the title structure, a massive icefield in the Rocky Mountains, provokes an experience of the sublime, of awe in something natural we're unable to appreciate fully. The idea of the Columbia Icefield takes on the resonance here, perhaps more than the thing itself, in Wooley's search for expressing something large and intensely other. His work...

SeaBubbles, a “flying” boat startup that uses electric power instead of gas, hit Miami this weekend to show off one of its five prototype boats — or six, if you count an early, windowless white boat they’ve lovingly dubbed the “soapdish.” This innovative boat design combines technology from nautical industries, aviation, and intelligent software to raise the hull of the boat out of the water using foils, which ...
