(Purdue University) A new method could allow better materials to make up battery electrodes by converting them into a nanochain structure, extending battery lifetime and increasing stability.
Once perfected into a closed-loop system, the Rice University reactor will be able to transform CO2 into pure liquid fuels for electric vehicle designs.

New Oil Projects Won’t Pay Off If World Meets Paris Climate Goals, Report Shows – InsideClimate News
The world’s leading oil companies increasingly have argued that they must be part of the world’s transition to a low-carbon future. But a new report shows that despite their rhetoric, they continue to spend their money as if that transition…
After the unveiling of the new Porsche Taycan yesterday, analysts were quick to call the only electric competitor (the Tesla Model S) “ancient in comparison,” pointing out the “pathbreaking” 800 volt system that “slashes recharging times.” It is true that a higher system voltage can reduce charging times: you can feed more power to the battery without increasing the charge current. But just how good is Porsche’s implementation
ChargePoint has been an early leader in defining and deploying public EV charging stations from the early days, having been founded in 2007. This month, the company celebrates not only 12 years in operation, but also the installation of the 100,000th place to charge around the world

Bird boasts that its dockless electric scooters allow customers to “cruise past traffic and cut back on CO2 emissions—one ride at a time.” Its rival Lime claims the vehicles “reduce dependence on personal automobiles for short-distance transportation and leave future…
It seems like an idyllic life for the 120 burros living free in California’s Mojave Desert. Until some deranged miscreant comes along and murders one-third of your community. Such a person has picked off 42 members of the Clark Mountain herd since May. Now the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and animal rights groups have pooled their funds to offer nearly $60,000 in reward money. “The cruelty involved in shooting these burros and leaving them to die
