MIT’s New Paper Thin Speakers Can Cover Any Surface to Turn Your Room Into a Concert Hall

MIT engineers have developed a paper-thin loudspeaker that can turn any surface into an active audio source. This thin-film loudspeaker produces sound with minimal distortion while using a fraction of the energy required by a traditional loudspeaker. The hand-sized loudspeaker the team demonstrated, which weighs about as much as a dime, can generate high-quality sound […]

Scientists Powering Tesla on 9,400-mile Journey With Rolled-up Printed Solar Panels

Scientists from Australia and Britain are planning to take a 9,400-mile road trip through some of the most remote regions of the world in a Tesla, all the while charging the batteries with an unrollable plastic solar panel sheet. Called the Charge Around Australia project, the team hopes to get Australians to think about ways […]

New Enzyme Discovery is Another Leap Towards Dissolving Plastic Waste With ‘Amazing Efficiency’

Scientists who helped pioneer the use of enzymes to eat plastic have taken an important next step in developing nature-based solutions to the global plastics crisis. They have characterized an enzyme that has the remarkable capacity to break down terephthalate (TPA)—one of the chemical building blocks of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic, which is used to […]

The Atlantic Is Worried That Nuclear War Could ‘Wreck’ The Climate

In the latest example of liberal media losing the plot in the middle of a news cycle, The Atlantic has a piece out a warning that, “on top of everything else” a nuclear bomb would do, the “climate problem” caused…

Scientists Develop Breakthrough Method for Recycling Industrial Plastics at Room Temperature in 20 Minutes

A new and simple method for upcycling plastic waste at room temperature has been developed by a team of British researchers. The researchers at the University of Bath hope the new process will help recycling become less energy intensive, and thus more economically viable. While recycling rates are growing across Europe, traditional methods remain limited […]

Doddering Biden Volunteers America For Higher Energy Prices

After failing to plan for the obvious contingencies, a doddering Joe Biden turned up late to his own press conference and announced that he’s volunteering America for higher energy prices as a result of his feeble bid to defend Ukraine’s borders. [bold, links added]…

With Alarmists, The End Is Always Nigh

Typically for my generation, I woke repeatedly as a kid with my pajamas soaked in sweat because I’d had yet another nightmare about nuclear war. While I rarely dream about mushroom clouds anymore, a dark cloud of one shape or…

Alarmed by climate change | | bedfordgazette.com – bedfordgazette.com

New results from a long-running public opinion survey show that about 1 in 3 Americans is now “alarmed” by global warming. Is it any wonder, given the horrific onslaught of fires, floods, heat waves and other climate disasters we’ve experienced…

These Seaweed-Inspired Generators Create Underwater Wave Power

A prototype renewable energy device modeled after seaweed generates kinetic energy while it gently lolls about under the waves. While only a proven concept, at a large enough scale the small filaments could provide energy to power major electrical appliances in coastal habitations such as floating buoys, coastal power stations, submerged devices, water monitoring equipment, […]
