Bikes cause global warming because you exhale CO2, GOPer says. Washington state representative Ed Orcutt (a Republican) wants to tax people who ride bikes because of the wear and tear bicycles generate on roads and, incredibly, because of the greenhouse gases cyclists produce when they exhale.
Solar Roadways, a modular paving system comprised of glass solar panels that have already been tested for load, traction and impact resistance (and can withstand the heaviest of trucks - 250,000 pounds) has raised $1.5 million and is moving from prototype to manufacturing. The panels can be installed on roads, parking lots, driveways, sidewalks, bike paths, playgrounds, you name it... and, of course, generate electricity. via Big Think
My vagabond lifestyle began at retirement. I suspect that many of us retirees, especially those on a tight budget as I am, who are drawn to adventure or yearning for an uncomplicated lifestyle, take up RV’ing full-time.
Estos tipos hicieron un prototipo de pavimento para construir "rutas solares" y están juntando guita en @Indiegogo para mejorarlo. Los paneles juntan energía solar, tienen LEDs y microporcesadores para señalización, sensores de peso, derriten hielo y nieve para que no se acumule sobre la ruta, ductos para cableado y fibra, ductos para conducir agua de lluvia y deshielo, etc... - http://2ba.by/15xcr
By 2050, rising temperatures exacerbated by human-induced belches of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases could send more than a million plants and animals down the road to extinction and cause several climate changes as inundations by sea level rise. #climatechange #globalwarming
