The UK, Europe’s third largest auto market, saw plug-in electric vehicle market share hit 9.5% in June 2020, up from 2.1% in June 2019. Accumulated EV market share for H1 2020 now stands at 7.7%. The ever popular Tesla Model 3 was the 9th best selling passenger vehicle in June
For the last 10 years, I have consulted for grain growing interests, providing information about past and potential future trends in growing season weather that might impact crop yields. Their primary interest is the U.S. corn belt, particularly the 12…
(Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research) The New Siberian Islands were the birthplace of the MOSAiC floe: the sea ice in which the research vessel Polarstern is now drifting through the Arctic was formed off the coast of the archipelago, which separates the East Siberian Sea and the Laptev Sea to the north of Siberia, in December 2018.
Study: Driving Tesla Model 3 Is Whole Lot Cheaper Than Driving Petrol Vehicles In 23 African Countries
The transition to electromobility is well underway. In fact, it is happening much faster than most people think. EV market share figures are starting to look quite nice in many markets in the developed world
The Swedish plug-in electric vehicle market share in June 2020 hit 25%, up significantly from 10% in June 2019. Overall auto sales were still recovering, down 23% year on year.
(Santa Fe Institute) Biological builders like beavers, elephants, and shipworms re-engineer their environments. How this affects their ecological network is the subject of new research, which finds that increasing the number of “ecosystem engineers” stabilizes the entire network against extinctions.
By Jeff Berardelli For the past year, some of the most up-to-date computer models from the world’s top climate modeling groups have been “running hot” – projecting that global warming may be even more extreme than earlier thought. Data from…
(Kyushu University, I2CNER) Analysis of seismometer data from the InSight Martian lander revealed that different types and frequencies of ambient low-magnitude “microtremors” on Mars were associated with different sources, and some reflected daily variations in wind and solar irradiance, either in distant locations or near the lander. These findings will contribute to future projects seeking to model and monitor the Martian subsurface.
Scientists have shown how even low doses of neonicotinoid insecticides, as they may realistically occur in contaminated soils, adversely affect the development of black garden ants (Lasius niger). This study highlights the need to overthink current deployment and management of chemical pest control for more sustainable agriculture.
