Nuclear Fusion – scientists are working to bring this fiction to fact

Nuclear fusion is the stuff of science fiction but scientists are working hard to make it a reality. A joint force from around the world has banded together to create this promising form of renewable energy but even if they are successful, everyone is in agreement that solar and wind are still our best bet right now.

Microbes For Dinner – a protein substitute from very humble beginnings

Food is a major focus area when it comes to talks of climate change. Lack of it, the toll cattle and other herd animals are taking on the environment, the lack of space and water for agriculture, etc. These are all issues we’re going to have to wrestle with. There’s one small solution out there though: Microbes.

Swindon Adds Electric – new drop in powertrain adds electric option for petrol cars

In order to meet emission goals, decreasing the amount of emissions from vehicles is a key point. It’s easy enough to say just drive an electric car but, well, it’s really easy to say anything, isn’t it? Swindon took a more solution and has introduced a a 80kW powertrain so that cars can be easily switched over to electric.

The Future Needs Better Batteries – storing renewable energy is the next hurdle

Using power efficiently isn’t all about just using renewable sources, we also need better ways to store that power, on a large scale. A future that relies on renewable energy is a future that calls for better power storage to utilize it and right now, we’re mostly relying on decades old technology.

New Termovoltaics Breakthrough – may lead to drone batteries that last for days

A new breakthrough will give drones the ability to stay in the air for longer amounts of time, improving their efficiency and range of uses. Thermovoltaics are a light weight energy source but up until now haven’t been able to put out the type of power to make them greatly useful. A new breakthrough changes that.

Turn Heat Into Light – new research on a process to reclaim more lost energy

We lose a lot of energy through heat in our devices. If a device puts out heat, regardless of what that device is doing, that’s energy lost. Researchers want to capture that and a new development utilizing carbon nanotubes may make that that dream into a reality.

AI and Climate Change – in the future, AI will help us battle climate change

Robots probably don’t have a lot to fear when it comes to climate change. I think that was a plot point in the Matrix. Anyway, that doesn’t mean they can’t help us fight it today. Innovative use of AI may prove to be key in helping humanity push back against the climate crisis.

Plastic Eating Bacteria – microorganisms in the fight against pollution

Plastic waste is a huge problem because we rely on the material for many, many things. Not just grocery bags and packaging either. Medical equipment, tech devices, inexpensive textiles, etc. The list is really endless. One day we may be able to dispose of plastic the same way we do food waste, with bacteria. Plastic eating bacteria isn’t here yet but it’s looking better and better for our future.
