Infographic: The Car of the Future

Infographic: The Car of the Future | green infographics | Scoop.it

Will the steering wheel, brakes and gas pedal be replaced with sensors and software?

Cars that talk to each other are being tested in Ann Arbor, Mich., in the largest vehicle-to-vehicle pilot in the nation, and testing of self-driving cars has been approved in both California and Nevada. In fact, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) predicts that in 2040, 75 percent of cars on the road will be self-driving.

A recent press release on Top 10 Future Car Technologiesfrom Total Car Score mirrors much of the information from the following infographic from InsuranceQuotes.com, which shows what other features cars in the future might have. Think super fuel efficiency, media on demand, voice control and zero maintenance...

Don't Worry, Drive On: Fossil Fools & Fracking Lies

Don't Worry, Drive On: Fossil Fools & Fracking Lies | green infographics | Scoop.it
Two things never seem to change about crude oil: the constant warnings that our thirst for it is unsustainable, and the fact that we continue to use it...

 

These two troubling trends are issues which should be dealt with, and quickly, as this intriguing motion graphic from The Post Carbon Institute points out.
They make the case that in recent years the political rhetoric has increased, pointing to so-called “new” technologies as solutions to the un-sustainability of fossil fuels. One such technology, fracking, aims high pressure water and chemicals into our soils, releasing both oil and natural gasses. In fact an old technology, a multitude of problems arise from its use, not least of which is the pollution of ground waters and the destabilization of soils resulting in earthquakes in previously stable areas. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the technology is expensive to use and only begins to makes sense financially in a world with high enough fuel prices – the world of today.


Isn’t it time we start getting realistic about our true fuel situation? Watch the video at the link for more information, then check out The Post Carbon Institute to show your support...

Global Energy Subsidies Map -- National Geographic

Global Energy Subsidies Map -- National Geographic | green infographics | Scoop.it
Fossil-fuel subsidies are a growing fiscal burden that encourage wasteful consumption. See which countries have the largest subsidies around the world.

Nations are weighing phaseout of fossil fuel subsidies, a growing fiscal burden that ratchets up carbon dioxide emissions by encouraging wasteful oil, natural gas, and coal consumption. The largest subsidies are in developing countries, which spend more than $400 billion annually shielding their populations from high fuel prices. But oil industry tax breaks and other government measures in developed nations also subsidize fossil fuels, to the tune of $45 billion to $75 billion per year.

Shows for fossil fuels, as well as having detrimental effects on the atmosphere also have a devastating effect on country's economy's by requiring the use of subsidies

Global Gouging: A Survey of Fuel Prices Around the World

Global Gouging: A Survey of Fuel Prices Around the World | green infographics | Scoop.it

In spite of increasing domestic oil production, four-dollar-per-gallon gasoline remains an on-again/off-again reality in the United States.


That’s because oil and gas are global commodities, and the U.S. market isn’t as insular as we might like. The prices we pay, however, still stand out as cheap. Most of our global neighbors see fuel prices at the pump so high that even the most bumptious Texas oilman would blush. We’ve assembled the costs of a gallon of the most popular juice in every country we could—be it leaded crud in Ghana, sugar-derived ethanol in Brazil, or near avgas in Bahrain—based on the most recent data available...


Check out some of the pricing highs and lows on the dimensional map of fuel prices around the world.

The Green Fail Infographic | Energy Hack

The Green Fail Infographic | Energy Hack | green infographics | Scoop.it
Everywhere, companies today receive bonus points for going green. In retrospect, is the going green fever in actuality harming the environment instead?

Take bio-fuels, for example. They are praised for being biodegradable; however, the use and production of these fuels release more CO2 than fossil fuels. The row crops grown to create bio-fuel lead to higher erosion rates than sod crops.

Greenpeace: Save the Arctic Tour

Greenpeace: Save the Arctic Tour | green infographics | Scoop.it

We understand oil is a hot commodity (our entire modern world depends on it), but for the sake of saving money and not having to depend so heavily on foreign oil, the price just isn’t worth it. We all know the savings won’t be passed down to the consumer in the form of lower gas prices or heating options — at best they’ll stay where they are, if we’re even that lucky. Oil giants like Shell and Russia’s Gazprom threaten the entire ecosystem of the melting arctic. Polar bears, whales, and other creatures reside there — even native people. Russian oil companies are already damaging their Arctic areas, and we need to keep the unowned and uninhabited area around the North Pole a sanctuary, on both the Alaskan and Russian arctic fronts.

Two Greenpeace ships, the Esperanza and the Arctic Sunrise, are already on their way to the arctic right now to head off the Arctic oil rush. See what they’re up against in this graphic...

Drill Baby! Is the US Turning Against Green Energy?

Drill Baby! Is the US Turning Against Green Energy? | green infographics | Scoop.it
Gas prices continue to rise. Everywhere around the world people are feeling that smoldering hole in their pocket continue to get hotter and hotter.

With other traditional sources of energy becoming depleted as well, opinions on where to find fuel have been shifting considerably.
Renewable energy has been losing some support. I mean, when you really think about it; who really wants to try and restore a natural balance to the Earth and stop stripping it of all its precious, natural resources? So lame (we’re being totally facetious by the way).
But, some people are thinking this way.
There has been a -18% change in support of developing alternative sources of energy like; wind, solar, and hydrogen. There has also been a 35% change in favor of expanding exploration and production of oil, coal, and natural gas. Even in the devastating wake of Japan’s Fukushima Daiichi plant last year, support for nuclear power is on the rise as well...

An infographic describing our current oil situation and what peak oil is...

Today’s infographic suggests when a country discovers oil it will increase production exponentially until it peaks and begins its decline. Why does this matter? Because it is possible Saudi Arabia, the ones controlling oil prices, will potentially be peaking between 2012 and 2017. With reports showing they may be lying about the number of barrels they have, by as many as 300 billion barrels.
