The coming era of unlimited — and free — clean energy | The Washington Post

Futurist Ray Kurzweil notes that solar power has been doubling every two years for the past 30 years — as costs have been dropping. He says solar energy is only six doublings — or less than 14 years — away from meeting 100 percent of today’s energy needs. Energy usage will keep increasing, so this is a moving target. But, by Kurzweil’s estimates, inexpensive renewable sources will provide more energy than the world needs in less than 20 years. Even then, we will be using only one part in 10,000 of the sunlight that falls on the Earth. In places such as Germany, Spain, Portugal, Australia, and the Southwest United States, residential-scale solar production has already reached “grid parity” with average residential electricity prices.

The 10 maps that illustrate the healthiest counties in America | The Washington Post

There are any number of ways to measure quality of life across geographic areas: Who has the longest commutes? Who breathes the cleanest air? Where are obesity rates lowest? Who has the most access to exercise facilities?

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has the answers. The foundation’s annual County Health Rankings, a joint project with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, use nearly three dozen indicators to pit regions against each other, all in an effort to measure ways to improve health outcomes across the country.

The rankings, released Wednesday, show the counties where residents enjoy higher-than-average health have better access to healthy foods, parks and exercise facilities, where doctors are plentiful and the air is cleaner. Unhealthy atmospheres can lead to lower-than-average graduation rates, higher obesity and denser, more expensive housing conditions (Find the complete report, along with downloadable data, here).

The Solar Technology That Could Solve Californias Water Problem | EcoWatch

The founders of a California company are gearing up to make a difference in their state’s future—about 2 million gallons worth of a difference.

As the state battles a lengthy drought and considers spending $7 billion to $9 billion to produce, transport and store fresh water, WaterFX, a San Francisco-based, independent water producer says it has been testing a potential solution for the past year.

A Simple Solar Oven Makes Salt Water Drinkable | The MindUnleashed

It functions by filling the black boiler with salty sea water in the morning, then tightening the cap. As the temperature and pressure grows, steam is forced downwards through a connection pipe and collects in the lid, which acts as a condenser, turning the steam into fresh water. Once Diamanti established the fundamentals were sound, he experimented with a series of concepts for the aesthetic of the object.

Solar Liquid Power: NASA Launches New Earth Technology into Space in 2 Days | New Earth Media

Solar Liquid Power is a breakthrough nanotechnology that will revolutionize alternative energy. This incredible substance can absorb a diverse spectrum of light (including infrared, UVa/UVb rays) and convert it into usable energy, very much like a solar panel. SLP can be painted on almost any surface and it provides a much greater output of usable energy than conventional solar cells.
