In the modern city, space, as any over zealous estate agent will gleefully tell you, is at a premium.
The eco world is all abuzz over aquaponics as the latest go-to green technology. It is an effective method for raising seedlings and fish farming in closed-loop systems. With this knowledge, Schools for Sustainability trekked across an island to find this still-rare system in action in a country that has been using aquaponics since pre-Columbian times!
Why do we keep reading about unreliability as the problem with a 100-percent clean power future? The media confuses intermittency with unreliability. A full moon is intermittent -- and so are eruptions of Old Faithful. But we would not describe either of them as "unreliable."
If businesses adopt a circular paradigm that tracks the environmental impacts of their products throughout their entire lifecycles, we can help alleviate climate change and ensure we have enough natural resources to use in perpetuity.
Sunrise is the most beautiful part of the day. First light. Don't matter if there are colors like a picture postcard or it's gray as water in a greasy sink. The darkness still fades. The light begins. Makes you feel alive like nothing else.
Kazakhstan can offer a much more visible contribution to international peace and prosperity. This country needs to be called upon to play a stronger and more active role in the mediation of interests between the United States (U.S.) and the European Union (E.U.), on one side, and Russia and the Middle East, on the other.
I want to offer a special thanks to the technologists of the world -- all those who work anonymously in the world's labs and engineering departments to come up with the circuits, code, and contraptions that have combined to change life as I know it.
Recently I caught up with Maxime Veron, Head of Product Management at Nest to take a deeper look at the company's initiatives in the areas of social good, artificial intelligence(AI) and their vision for the future of the smart home.
Recycling is critically important, but it's only one part of a larger, globally emergent environmental paradigm known as the Circular Economy. As we look forward to America Recycles Day, we are reminded that we have so much more to do.
With the motto "Skateboards for plastic-free oceans," and the slogan "Ride your Footprint," Bureo aims to reduce the amount of sea pollution by recycling discarded fishing nets -- which make up 10 percent of the world's ocean pollution -- into skateboard decks.

Climate change economics is viable and sustainable. The wide-ranging benefits to our not so distant future lives and our generational concerns for the environment are priceless.
While we can and should continue to work towards viable fossil fuel substitutes, the thought that such alternatives will meet energy demands in the short run is, unfortunately, a fantasy. Which means that the most, and perhaps only, surefire way to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels is simply to consume less.
Climate change can bring out the best in us and help reinvigorate our economy. That's usually not the headline of a story about climate change, but it's a headline we can write if we want to.
Many consumers are under the generally false impression that adopting 'green' (i.e., energy efficient) technologies is beyond their financial reach. And especially during these economic hard times, even the suspicion that something will cost more is enough to deter its purchase.
I sat down with Jim Keyt, Senior Manager of Global Technology Strategy over at Ben and Jerry's to find out just how technology fuels the processes behind your favorite flavors.
