The Car Of The Future Is SOO Eco-Friendly Thanks To Leaves And Sunshine!!!

artificial leaf technology

WooHoo!! We LOVE the Earth!!

Simulating the way leaves harness the energy of the sun, scientists have a discovered a way to use "artificial leaf technology" to possibly powers ships and planes…. and even cars!!!

According to Professor Richard Cogdell:

What you need is to be able to lock that energy up in some sort of storage fluid that’s available on demand, and that’s what fuel is. To really sustain our way of life after the oil runs out we have to be able to make, renewably and sustainably, dense portable fuels for transport, especially for aeroplanes and ships. We’re looking at photosynthesis to see whether we can learn to copy it in a more robust and efficient way. What we’ve realised in just the last couple of months is that we should be able to use electricity to power these reactions. I would be very disappointed if this wasn’t working in the real world in 30 years time.

Uhm, ya!!

We'd be totes disappointed too!!

Oil is soooo last century!! Time to be smart about the way we use our energy!!!

Japan Using Tsunami Recovery Money To Fund Whaling

Filed under: Disgusting!WhalesHunting

This is despicable.

Japan is spending 2.3 BILLION yen ($29 million) from its tsunami reconstruction budget to fund their annual whale murdering spree hunt.

They are defending their actions by saying the money is helping to fund Japan's whaling industry as a whole, including some towns along the coast that were severely affected by the tsunami.

The money is supposed to help beef up security of the fleet to ensure "stable operation."

That basically means they're worried about the Sea Shepherd.

We think its terrible that they're pulling money away from disaster victims to go out and kill whales.

Let's hope the Sea Shepherd is ready to do what's needed of them to save the whales.
