We have the technology to dump oil forever. , and now from ocean waves.

We have so many solutions. No more oil fueled wars.

Most longer stays/stops of #Perseverance and #Ingenuity seem to have taken place in close proximity to one another, only #Ingenuity's latest stop was a lonely one:

"The perennial grain can produce an annual crop even as it stays in the ground for up to four years. Its deep root system helps pull carbon out of the air & makes it more resistant to floods & drought."

We are still making progress on the new extruder I built. I passed a 1st hopper of granulate and made a 50x50 profile. The machine is at 150RPM. This is quite an achievement for such a small setup. This is an project that was mostly financed by a award (UKRI) we won. It could be a game-changer in decentralising the recycling for remote communities affected by ocean pollution.

"Imagine if we spent our pentagon budget on renewable energy projects, even for one year."

Science fiction meets finance reality.
Kim Stanley Robinson joins
World Bank Intl Finance Corp
to talk about our climate future. As humanity is on the brink of a crisis, Robinson says there are solutions, and technology as well as finance play a huge part.


BREAKING: Scientists are calling for a global effort to mine e-waste, rather than mining the Earth.

In 2021 alone, the world discarded 57 million tons of electronics. Less than 20% is collected and recycled.

Justin McAaffee: "This is the model created 50 years ago at MIT that is tracking the closest to reality. System dynamics modeling is impressive. Obviously a number of things could change this outcome, but none of them seem likely. Conclusion: major collapse of human society in the next two decades."

I often get asked about the technological solutions that are in development for a peaceful green transition. Here's a revolutionary idea from a team of researchers in Germany, that could potentially save millions: #green #dkgreen #climate #ecology

Farmers in Kenya are using to improve crop yields. The panels help reduce heat stress, reduce water loss, grow larger crops and cut energy bills.

#RightToRepair will become an absolute necessity in the near future. Having all the supply chain completely fucked up and prices all over increasing like never before, people will need to learn how to do stuff themselves instead of pulling a credit card.
