I hope that microbial battery pans out as a commercial success, Idaho Spud. Thanks for the post.

TNT666, I fully agree with you on this:

I can fully imagine it costing more to park the cycle that way for a year than it is to buy a cycle! One thing about cyclist rights and accessibility. It should be near zero cost and near zero legal burden, since cyclists don't kill others, don't pollute, and cycling has its own health benefits.


If the costs of auto accidents is considered, a city would save money by subsidizing bike use, including secure parking.

And on climate denial ...

By producing electricity from the organic matter in wastewater, a new microbial battery may more than cover the costs of water purification. Sophie Bushwick reports:

One graph from the EPA shows Climate Change at a glance.

Saving space??? Cars take up much more space than bicycles, I hope they are asking people to pay to park their cars that way too. I can fully imagine it costing more to park the cycle that way for a year than it is to buy a cycle! One thing about cyclist rights and accessibility. It should be near zero cost and near zero legal burden, since cyclists don't kill others, don't pollute, and cycling has its own health benefits.

Electric-Blue 'Noctilucent' Clouds get early 2013 start

Such an interesting cloud formation, perhaps we will be able to see them,

News to me: on May 1st, General Motors became the first automaker to sign Ceres' "Climate Declaration", thus affirming that global climate destabilization (climate change) is real.

This chart of temperature anomalies is helpful in grasping the role of El Nino and La Nina in Climate Change induced extreme weather events.

Thanks for the blubberland link, Dallas.

Ask government to spend a little to save a lot
"On February 5, 2013, the federal government’s environmental watchdog released a report suggesting that Canada has a long way to go to protect our coastal ecosystems and oceans.
The report — by Canada’s Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, Scott Vaughan -- questions why Canada has only protected one per cent of our oceans, and cautions that we won’t meet our commitment to protect 10 per cent of our oceans for decades to come unless we take action now.
Meanwhile, Australia and the United States are well on their way to meeting ocean conservation goals (at 40 and eight per cent respectively)
In short, it’s a lot of talk and little action.
Ask government to spend a little to save a lot
