This idea is part of the evolving science of precision agriculture, in which farmers use technology to target their use of water, fertilizer and other inputs. Precision farming makes agriculture more sustainable because it reduces waste.
Sustainability is the next chapter in human progress, and the key is economic renewable energy technology. The paradigm shift towards sustainability is moving the energy industry from resource-constrained to technology-enabled, from destructive to creative.
Earlier this year, our efforts to protect our ocean, waves and beaches off the Atlantic scored a major victory when the Obama Administration excluded areas along the Atlantic coast from offshore oil drilling in the 2017-2022 leasing plan. But, the battle to protect the Atlantic is far from over.

Once so wealthy from oil sales that they could finance wars, mega-projects, and domestic social peace simultaneously, some of them are now beset by internal strife or are on the brink of collapse as oil prices remain at ruinously low levels.
The first time I approached the Grand Canyon I walked to the rim expecting to look down, and instead looked over and out at a vast landscape of undulating canyons in primal colors, rising up into fantastic shapes and plunging down to the Colorado River. It was not what I...
The most common 'solutions' for waste today are linear in nature, treating waste materials as useless outputs to burn in an incinerator or be buried in a landfill where none of the material value of the waste can be captured. In response to this present linear product economy, some believe...
In just under one month children at the Ecole Ruban Vert - an international school I founded in my home country of Gabon - will depart for the summer holidays. It will be the end of our second year as a complete school on our new...
