(Natural News) The recent push toward clean energy and transportation has driven up demand for electric vehicles and the batteries that power them. Lithium is an important element in the manufacture of electric vehicle batteries, and the Atacama salt flat in Chile holds most of the world’s lithium reserves. However, extracting this element from the salt flat comes with a huge price – as a professor has claimed.
Michael Moore presents Planet of the Humans, a documentary that dares to say what no one else will this Earth Day — that we are losing the battle to stop climate change on planet earth because we are following leaders who have taken us down the wrong road — selling out the green movement to wealthy interests and corporate America. This film is the wake-up call to the reality we are afraid to face: that in the midst of a human-caused extinction event, the environmental movement’s answer is to push for techno-fixes and band-aids. It’s too little, too late. →
Don’t be afraid; Global Warming, currently ‘Climate Change’ is not true. It’s dressed up as science but it’s not science, it’s propaganda: “Global temperatures are rising, greenhouses gas emissions are destroying our atmosphere;” say the fear-mongers “there is more carbon dioxide in our atmosphere than ever before, the migration patterns of animals are changing”, and so the list goes on and on. We are simply being told lies. There is no direct evidence that links global warming with greenhouse gases. There is no scientific proof that ‘carbon dioxide’ (CO2) drives climate, it certainly hasn’t done in the past. The CO2 theory is, simply put, ingenious propaganda, pushing the idea of man-made climate change, to create a price-inflating energy policy. While the greenhouse theses have since long been refuted. Neither the ban on light bulbs, nor the gigantic subsidies for so-called renewable energy, has proven to be of any sensible value in changing this manufactured predicament. Instead of influencing climate change with taxes, governments should have dealt with the consequences of natural climate change. →

(Natural News) The world’s first biofuel flight between the U.S. and Australia was achieved with great success by the teams behind it — Qantas and Agricoma Biosciences rejoiced publicly as they both announced the completion of their historic flight. However, while the benefits of switching from conventional fossil fuels to biofuels for cross-country flights might…Read more
Imagine a world where you never have to worry about your cell phone battery dying. This may soon become a reality, as researchers at theUniversity of Washingtonhave invented a battery-free cell phone that works with the power of ambient light and radio waves. The research was published July 1st in the journalProceedings of the ACM, titled “Battery-Free Cellphone.”

Shaped like a panda — China’s most beloved animal, the plant was installed by Panda Green Energy. In its first phase, the Panda Power Plant can…
New research details method for distilling water by converting solar energy.
Nearly 97% of all the water on earth is salt water. The typical process to remove salt is by boiling the water and capturing the steam. Desalination is expensive and energy intensive. Presently, there are more than 18,000 desalination plants across 150 countries.
Last weekend, the first Apple store in Southeast Asia opened its doors to tech-savvy customers. To keep with the company’s mission to “generate and source from more than 4 gigawatts of new clean energy worldwide by 2020,” the new building, which was designed by Foster + Partners and Apple, is powered entirely by clean energy.
The Apple Orchard Road store features mature trees inside and outside the shop. Due to a stunning glass front, the splendor can be witnessed from meters away. Considered to be one of Foster + Partners’ “greenest Apple spaces yet,” the store is located in the heart of Singapore and was crafted to portray the strong focus on community and connection to nature.
