An interview with Jackalyne Pfannenstiel
Energy efficiency is the easiest and least expensive way to quickly produce energy savings and reduce your home’s carbon footprint. But many homeowners are interested in taking these savings to another level by replacing grid-supplied electricity with their own power.
Effective January 1, 2011, California, a long time energy efficiency leader, became the first state to set new energy standards for incandescent screw-base light bulbs. These new regulations are aimed at making standard incandescent bulbs more efficient.
The Environmental Protection Agency is urging schools across the nation to replace their aging light fixtures due to possible chemical leaks.
The rest of the developed world has high-speed rail. We don't. That's finally about to change.
In what seems a deus ex machina or perhaps deus ex gaia moment, scientists from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory report that the miles-long deep sea oil plume which resulted from the BP oil spill has essentially vanished, apparently eaten by microbes previously unknown to science.
NRDC’s Water Program is increasingly focused on solutions to our leading water pollution problems, one of which is urban stormwater.
The dirty runoff that hits our waterways after storms may not be as obvious as the pollution that comes out of factories or oil refineries, but it has an enormous impact on our nation’s beaches, nonetheless.
Two days ago, four teams hailing from Australia, Switzerland, South Korea and Germany set out from Geneva to race around the globe in a mere eighty days. Unlike previous world races The Zero Race teams must undertake the thirty-thousand kilometer trip using electric, emission-free vehicles.
A colleague sent over this article detailing a mind-blowing nexus of my energy and wildlife work - the discovery of a fairly common salamander species that is literally powered by the sun, at least early on. New research finds that spotted salamander embryos and hatchlings somehow have little bits of algae inside their cells to create energy using photosynthesis. It is the first time this has been observed in any animal with vertebrae.
More importantly, its yet another example of why keeping critters on this planet is so important - we clearly still have a lot to learn from the animal kingdom. Who knows if the humble salamander harbors secrets that will help fix our energy mess...
It is the official position of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that the chemicals BP used in the Gulf of Mexico to disperse spilled oil pose no public health risks.
