You've heard the complaints about SUV drivers "owning" the road, blocking other drivers' views, and polluting the environment. You've also felt the brunt of rising gas prices. So here's a website to convince you why NOT to buy an SUV.
Bay Area Action, a nonprofit environmental organization in the Silicon Valley, has created a website dedicated to informing visitors of the physical and environmental dangers of driving a sport utility vehicle. The site provides some sobering statistics. Did you know that Americans have wasted 70 billion gallons of gasoline since 1990, thanks to the inefficiencies of SUVs?
Since the group aims to educate, the site (www.baaction.org/SUVticket) provides a downloadable PDF file of an SUV ticket. Citizens may issue these to SUV drivers with violations such as, "Thought SUVs were safer, disregarded rollover warnings" and, "Did not realize SUVs pay higher insurance rates."
It's all in good humor, at the expense of gas guzzlers.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
