Posted by in categories: climatology, engineering, governance, habitats, sustainability

Because global warming and its associated risks are here to stay.

Global warming is causing many physical risks such as droughts, wildfires, and floods. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, global warming is essentially irreversible, which means these dangers will keep coming up. Luckily, some countries have started planning ahead.

The Busan Metropolitan City of the Republic of Korea, the UN-Habitat, and OCEANIX have joined forces to build the world’s first prototype sustainable floating city in order to get ahead of physical risks.

Elon Musk shares hilarious theory about why US leaders are refusing to admit that Tesla exists

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, sustainability, transportation

US President Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris, and members of the current administration who are seemingly refusing even to mention the word “Tesla” may soon find their online presence saturated with the EV maker’s name. This was after Tesla CEO Elon Musk poked fun at the Biden administration’s tendency to completely ignore Tesla’s existence or accomplishments during public appearances and on social media.

Last week, the online electric vehicle community was aghast after US President Joe Biden visited General Motors’ Factory Zero in Detroit, Michigan. While speaking to the audience, Biden patted GM CEO Mary Barra’s back, stating that the executive was leading the auto sector’s transition to electric vehicles. “You electrified the entire automotive industry. I’m serious. You led, and it matters,” Biden said. The US President doubled down on this sentiment with a series of posts on Twitter, stating that the future of the US is electric.

Biden’s sentiments were later echoed by VP Kamala Harris, who also noted that the United States would be building electric vehicles, including the batteries and parts that go in them, instead of relying on other countries. Just like the President, she also noted that the “future will be made in America.” This resulted in numerous netizens poking fun at the Vice President, stating that the future is already being made in America by Tesla — for over a decade. Other Twitter users further joked that Harris might have simply never seen a Tesla, despite serving as California’s attorney general from 2011 to 2017.

Rolls-Royce Claims Its All-Electric Plane Is World’s Fastest

Posted by in categories: government, sustainability, transportation

In a recent news release 0, the company, not to be mistaken for the car company owned by BMW, claimed that the Spirit of Innovation set three new world records earlier this week. On flight tests carried out on Nov. 16, Rolls-Royce said its aircraft reached a top speed of 345.4 mph (555.9 km/h) over 1.8 miles (3 kilometers), exceeding the current record by 132 mph (213 k/h). It broke another record in a subsequent 9.3-mile (15 kilometer) flight, during which it reached 330 mph (532.1 km/h), surpassing the current record by 182 mph (292.8 km/h).

The Spirit of Innovation didn’t stop there, though. Rolls-Royce affirms that it smashed another record when it reached 9,842.5 feet (3,000 meters) in 202 seconds, beating the current record by 60 seconds. In the company’s view, it also took the title of the world’s fastest all-electric vehicle when it reached a maximum speed of 387.4 mph (623 km/h) during its flight tests.

The company’s aircraft is powered by a 400kW electric powertrain and “the most power-dense propulsion battery pack ever assembled in aerospace.” It’s part of the Accelerating the Electrification of Flight project 0, which receives half of its funding from the UK government and the Aerospace Technology Institute.

Novel device harvests drinking water from humidity around the clock

Posted by in categories: energy, space, sustainability

Freshwater is scarce in many parts of the world. While currently there is enough fresh water on earth to support consumption, it is not available in a way where supply meets demand. To solve this issue, engineers at ETH Zurich have developed a new device that can harvest drinking water 24 hours around the clock, with no energy input, even under the blazing sun.

It consists of a specially coated glass pane, which both reflects solar radiation and also radiates away its own heat through the atmosphere to outer space. The resulting device thus cools itself down to as much as 15 degrees Celsius below the ambient temperature. At the bottom of the pane, the moisture in the air condenses into the water which is collected.

The glass pane is coated with layers of a specially designed polymer and silver, which allows it to firstly reflect sunlight away to prevent it from heating up. The coating causes the pane to emit infrared radiation at a specific wavelength window to the outer space, with no absorption by the atmosphere nor reflection back onto the pane.
