The record-setting Solar Impulse airplane has landed in America. It didn’t fly here – well, it did, but it did so disassembled and packed into the cargo load of a Boeing 747 for the trip from its home base in Switzerland to Moffett Federal Airfield in Silicon Valley.
The majority of coral reefs could be experiencing mass bleaching events by 2045, says an international team of scientists.
Another report has linked man-made climate change with extreme weather events around the world, including recent heat waves in the United States and Russia and the unprecedented Pakistan flood.
Most of us will see less snow over the coming years - but polar and high-altitude regions will get more, a new climate model from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts.
Silex Power, a small firm from the island nation of Malta, has cooked up a rather unique upper-market electric vehicle concept which, if it actually hits production in 2015, could rival the likes of Tesla Motors for performance and range.
Scientists and environmentalists have long warned that biofuel production could have troubling land-use consequences, and now there’s new research that appears to confirm some of the worst fears.
It could take as little as a 1.5 degree rise in global temperature to thaw Siberia permanently, potentially releasing catastrophic levels of cartbon dioxide and methane from the soil.
In combat situations, soldiers must make split-second decisions. High stress and poor environmental conditions often mean that the senses are compromised.
Remember the argument that electrified vehicles like hybrids, plug-in hybrids, "range-extended" hybrids, and electric vehicles are supposedly not as "clean" as gasoline-only autos?
What happens when an Ewok from the Forest Moon of Endor meets a Hobbit from the Shire, and they both decide to build a house together?
Mitsubishi Motors has trailed behind most other automakers in terms of electric car and hybrid development.
Almost one in five of the world's reptile species is threatened with extinction, a report from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) warns.
The widespread decline in Arctic sea ice is causing big changes to the balance of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, say researchers from Sweden's Lund University.
There are some fanciful architectural designs that look wonderful, almost dreamlike, in drawings, but you know will almost never get built in the real world.
What is the best selling electric car of all time? Well, it probably depends upon who you ask.
Tea is not just another hot drink in China, it’s a way of life — something valuable enough that a building can be built just for drinking it slowly in a contemplative natural setting.
The mission of the Hampshire College Lemelson Center in Amherst, Mass. is to help drive students to art, design and innovation for social change via working in the areas of applied design, appropriate technology, social entrepreneurship and art & technology.
The goal of many green designs for houses is to make them appear part of the landscape.
It appears that, when Arctic permafrost melts, it can release carbon dioxide gas into the atmosphere much faster than previously thought.
Emissions from coal power stations could be cut drastically by a new, energy-efficient material that adsorbs large amounts of carbon dioxide, then releases it when exposed to sunlight.
