This Bicycle Will Clean Polluted Air While You Pedal

For Architectural Digest, by Nick Mafi. As urban environments grow, particularly in emerging markets such as China, Brazil, and India, city smog is increasingly becoming a public health concern. Indeed, according to the World Health Organization, around 3 million deaths a year worldwide are attributable to air pollution. That’s one of many reasons why the Dutch artist and innovator Dan Roosegaarde has taken it upon himself to design a series of products to help curb the growing problems stemming from pollution. Last fall, Roosegaarde unveiled a series of 23-foot-high towers that, in essence, operate as a massive air purifier. But Roosegaarde wasn’t content only designing pollution-curbing buildings. He felt there was more he could do. And he was right. The implications could be enormous, particularly in urban environments where bike lanes are interwoven within the grid. The Dutch innovator recently unveiled a concept bicycle that, true to form, cleans polluted air while the rider pedals […]

Pittsburgh Hires Former Reagan Privatization Advisor To Fix Water Troubles

“Simply put, your infrastructure may be more valuable to you—and to the public—in someone else’s hands.” That’s Steve Steckler, founder of infrastructure consulting firm IMG, writing to public officials in a 2003 paper published by the libertarian Reason Foundation. Steckler is as pro-privatization as they come. A key architect of Ronald Reagan’s 1987 President’s Commission on Privatization, he helped develop a roadmap of federal government functions to hand to the private sector, including the Postal Service and school vouchers. Luckily, the Democratic Party’s stranglehold on the House throughout the 1980s blocked Reagan’s privatization assault. Pittsburgh might not be so lucky. Last month, Mayor Bill Peduto hired IMG to study the city’s public water authority, which is struggling to address a growing lead crisis. Since July 2016, contaminated tap water has put Pittsburgh’s residents, especially children, at risk of neurological damage, cardiovascular issues, and other health problems […]

We Have Two Options: Stabilize The Arctic Or Destabilize Our Planet

As the Arctic Council convenes in Fairbanks, it is a good time to remind ourselves that, unlike Las Vegas, what happens in the Arctic does not stay in the Arctic. The Arctic – its sea ice, terrestrial ice sheets, glaciers and permafrost – has significant influence on the planet’s weather patterns. Ocean currents, sea levels and rainfall patterns are all affected by what’s happening in the Arctic. All life on Earth has adapted for millions of years with a relatively stable Artic. That’s no longer the case. Today our generation is presiding over the dismantling of the Arctic and its stabilizing systems just when we need them the most […]

Methane Rule Endures, Common Sense Prevails

When they tell the story of environmental protection in the early days of President Trump’s administration, today’s Senate vote upholding rules to reduce natural gas waste on federal lands will stand out as a breathtaking and much-needed win for activism, civic engagement and common sense. The Senate turned back, for now, a disturbing push to ignore basic science and common-sense economics. It rejected an attempt by the Trump administration and Senate Republicans to overturn the Bureau of Land Management’s methane pollution rule, a resounding triumph of cooler heads over rank ideology and special interests. The oil and gas industry and the administration fundamentally misread the mood of the American people. It is the first big win this year for the environmental community – and a clear sign that when we fight back, we can still protect American families and defend our natural heritage. We won’t win them all. But we won today, and we should allow ourselves to feel good about that. Incredible waste avoided What might at first appear like an issue reserved for energy policy wonks – oil and gas producers squandering natural gas on federal and tribal lands via widespread leaks, intentional venting or flaring – resonated with broad swaths of the American public […]

It Only Takes A Few Countries To Kickstart A Decarbonization Revolution

Markus Hagemann, Utrecht University and Andrzej Ancygier, New York University In 2016, more renewable energy was added to the global grid than ever before, and at a lower cost. A global energy revolution is clearly underway. What catalyzed this transformation? In our latest study, Faster and Cleaner 2: Kick-Starting Decarbonization, we looked at the trends driving decarbonization in three key sectors of the global energy system – power, transportation, and buildings. By following the emission commitments and actions of countries, we examined what forces can drive rapid transition through our Climate Action Tracker analysis […]
