When someone mentions a mobile home or "house trailer," the image usually doesn't make others green with envy. Mobile homes haven't earned recognition for long-term quality, environmental friendliness or return on value.
The University of California, San Diego has become the first campus on the West Coast to join the Chicago Climate Exchange (CCX), North America’s only voluntary, legally binding trading system to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. UC San Diego is only the seventh university in the nation to join the climate exchange.
A Duke University-led analysis of available records shows that while the North Atlantic Ocean’s surface waters warmed in the 50 years between 1950 and 2000, the change was not uniform. In fact, the subpolar regions cooled at the same time that subtropical and tropical waters warmed.
Biofuels reduce greenhouse-gas emissions in comparison to fossil fuels. In the Jan. 4 issue of the journal Science, Smithsonian researchers highlight a new study that factors in environmental costs of biofuel production.
A Stanford scientist has spelled out for the first time the direct links between increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and increases in human mortality, using a state-of-the-art computer model of the atmosphere that incorporates scores of physical and chemical environmental processes.
Research and Markets has announced the addition of China Solar Energy Industry Research and Forecast, 2008-2010 to their offering.
The amount of wind energy connected to the electricity grid on the island of Ireland is set to breach the 1,000MW threshold by the end of this year.
Following the fourth assessment report of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and a gathering of representatives from over 180 countries at this month’s UN Climate Change Conference in Bali, Indonesia, the Dow Chemical Company today unveiled its solutions-based approach for addressing the twin challenges of energy and climate change.
Researchers at the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have developed a new method for producing next-generation biofuels by genetically modifying Escherichia coli bacteria to be an efficient biofuel synthesizer. The method could lead to mass production of these biofuels.
Millennium Cell Inc. and Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies announced today the completion of a pre-production version of the HydroPak™ portable power generator that incorporates a unique water-activated cartridge syst...
Xethanol Corporation, a renewable energy and clean technology company, today announced an extension of its Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) on cellulosic ethanol feedstocks, with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, Colorado. The agreement has been extended through March 7, 2008. The NREL lab is operated by the Midwest Research Institute under contract to the US Department of Energy.
Greenhouse gas emissions could be reduced by as much as 10 per cent thanks to the efforts of Queensland's cattle and sheep industries.
Americans have always expended energy on their dogs—we love them, we feed them, and of course, we clean up after them. Finally, the dogs of San Francisco are going to return the favor. The city will be the first in the nation to convert pet feces into methane gases for renewable energy.
EPA's clean fuels programs have exceeded expectations in reducing ozone pollutants and air toxics. A new report based on data collected from 1995-2005 finds emission reductions often significantly greater than regulatory requirements.
In a survey of the northern Basin and Range province of the western United States, geochemists Mack Kennedy of the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Matthijs van Soest of Arizona State University have discovered a new tool for identifying potential geothermal energy resources.
