Power of the Welsh Lagoon ...

This is another of those “been sitting in my browser” bits that I’m finally getting around to bringing to you (and, yes, it was a toss-up between this and editing some more video from last month’s events … but there’s a lot of that still to come). These are a couple of pieces about a... Read more »

Graphene advances ...

OK, Green Tech Chicago readers, this has gotten frustrating … I’ve attended a couple of events that I thought would provide some great interviews, but I came away with scarcely a Vine to show for it. I’ve been intending on getting more material up in here, but I’ve just not been able to get the... Read more »

Energy from your clothes, energy from your walls ...

As I’ve noted here before, I am still “on the fence” about just passing along stuff to you that’s been sitting in my browser’s tabs, because if you’re interested in this stuff, you’re probably reading the same feeds as I see, so it has the potential of being “ho-hum, read that last month!” and you...

A Tale of Two Towers ...

OK, LotR geeks, not those two towers (and not the 9/11 towers either) … over the past couple of weeks I’d seen some “green” stories involving “towers”, and thought that these two were interesting enough in their differences to pair up here. Both of these came to my attention via the http://www.fastcoexist.com feed I follow... Read more »

Biodiesel ...

OK … so this is a bit “out of left field”, but I recently read Josh Tickell’s Biodiesel America: How to Achieve Energy Security, Free America from Middle-east Oil Dependence And Make Money Growing Fuel, and figured it was Green, and Tech, and although (with apologies to GWTW’s Prissy) “I don’t know nothin’ ’bout gassin’...

Some Solar Advances ...

There have been a number of interesting things on the solar power front finding their way into my browser over the past couple of weeks, so I figured I’d pull together something for the blog. The “news” part of this, of course, was the announcement of the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System going on-line out... Read more »

Not new, but good ...

This article came up in my browsing this week and I thought “hey, what a great piece about The District!” … however, under closer inspection, I see that this dates back to November 2012 … so it’s hardly “new”, and I’m not sure if the details in it are still accurate, but Chicago’s urban farm...

More on mighty THOR(ium) ...

You thought I was going to leave it with a Thorium-powered batmobile? Hardly! As a matter of fact I’ve got a bunch of stuff on Thorium coming at you! I need to point out that my reviewing SuperFuel: Thorium, the Green Energy Source for the Future the week before the new Thor movie came out... Read more »

Wow ... and it looks like the Batmobile!

This caught my eye as I just recently finished reading a book (you’ll see the review here in a week or so) on Thorium in relation to atomic power. In this setting it’s being used with lasers to create steam to run turbines to make electricity to run a new concept car. This article is... Read more »

A resource you should check out ...

This article crossed my path the other day, and I thought it was something we should definitely pass along to our readers. It’s from a site called Food Tank, which bills itself as “The Food Think Tank”. Their site offers news and event listings, as well as a HUGE “Advisory Board”, full of heavy-hitters in... Read more »
