The West has a new front in the war over electric cars

The West has a new front in the war over electric cars

When Edward Bartell first learned that a lithium mine might be moving into his remote corner of northern Nevada, the longtime cattle rancher wasn’t upset.“I was actually kind of excited about it,” Bartell said. He knew that lithium is a key metal used in batteries for electric vehicles and the power grid, and he knew the United States is to transition off fossil fuels.But as Bartell started learning more about the proposed — which would be the second, and by far the largest, lithium mine in the United States — he grew increasingly worried about its impacts on his ranching business and...

Why France’s new 'repairability index’ is a big deal

Why France’s new 'repairability index’ is a big deal

Our electronic devices take a serious environmental toll, and one of the best ways to mitigate that is to use them for as long as possible before replacing them. But it’s hard to know how long a new gadget will last if you’re unsure how easy it will be to fix. Now, companies are going to have to start coming clean about that — in France, at least.In a world first move last month, France began makers of certain electronic devices, including smartphones and laptops, to tell consumers how repairable their products are.

Today's wind turbine blades could become tomorrow's bridges

Today's wind turbine blades could become tomorrow's bridges

On December 16, three 40 foot-long wind turbine blades were via truck from a wind farm in Belfast to the in southern Ireland. For the next few months, civil engineers will subject the blades to a battery of tests as they design and build a pedestrian bridge that uses pieces of them to replace traditional steel girders. By April, the bridge will be complete, and the Cork County Council will pick it up and install it on a bicycle route connecting the towns of Youghal and Middletown.If this experimental bridge is a success, it could be the first of many. Angela Nagle, a civil engineering Ph.D....

Why Are Progressives Wary of Technologies That Pull Carbon From the Air?

Why Are Progressives Wary of Technologies That Pull Carbon From the Air?

The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the National Academies of Sciences, and scores of researchers around the world agree on this fact: To prevent dangerous levels of climate change, it’s likely that humanity will need to start pulling carbon out of the air. The leading Democrats running for the White House, however, don’t seem so sure. Many of the contenders support using natural carbon sinks, like soils and forests, to suck more carbon out of the atmosphere, according to climate plans the Democratic candidates have released over the last few months. But only three of the...
