There's something wrong with the models of climate scientists advocating that the world is warming and that we're in for big trouble. 

The data just doesn't seem to agree with them.

There has also been a 60% increased summer ice cover in the arctic this year.

 

And then there's the 16-year stop on temperature increase, while CO2 is continuing to rise...

UN urges development of more small-scale organic farming - 2013 Report says it's the only way to feed the World

UN urges development of more small-scale organic farming - 2013 Report says it's the only way to feed the World | web devil | Scoop.it

Even as the US government continues to push for the use of chemically-intensive corporate-dominated farming, the United Nations is once again sounding the alarm about the urgent need to return to (and develop) a more sustainable, natural and organic system.

 

The cover of the report looks like that of a blockbuster documentary or Hollywood movie, and the dramatic nature of the title cannot be understated: The time is now to switch back to our natural farming roots.

Scientists Achieve Solar Hydrogen Production Breakthrough

Scientists Achieve Solar Hydrogen Production Breakthrough | web devil | Scoop.it

A newly published study reveals how scientists used a solar cell and a photo anode made of a metal oxide to achieve a solar hydrogen production breakthrough.

 

The experts were able to develop a rather elegant and simple system for using sunlight to split water into hydrogen and oxygen.

 

This process, called artificial photosynthesis, allows solar energy to be stored in the form of hydrogen. The hydrogen can then be used as a fuel either directly or in the form of methane, or it can generate electricity in a fuel cell.

 

One rough estimate shows the potential inherent in this technology: At a solar performance in Germany of roughly 600 Watts per square meter, 100 square meters of this type of system is theoretically capable of storing 3 kilowatt hours of energy in the form of hydrogen in just one single hour of sunshine. This energy could then be available at night or on cloudy days.

Out in the Open: The Tiny Box That Lets You Take Your Data Back From Google | Enterprise | WIRED

Out in the Open: The Tiny Box That Lets You Take Your Data Back From Google | Enterprise | WIRED | web devil | Scoop.it

For open source developer Johannes Ernst, what the world really needs is a simple device that anyone can use to take their data back from the wilds of the internet.

 

So he designed the Indie Box, a personal web server preloaded with open source software that lets you run your own web services from your home network–and run them with relative ease.

 

You can’t buy an Indie Box yet, but you can pre-order one through the crowdfunding site Indie GoGo.

 

The first Indie Box will run off an Intel Atom processor, 2GB of RAM, and two 1TB hard drives that mirror each other to help protect your data.

 

Software will include ownCloud, which offers a calendar, address book, and Dropbox-style file sharing; the photo album apps mediagoblin and Trovebox; and the e-mail client Mailpile.

Digital fabrication will change the course of the future

 

"Digital fabrication will allow individuals to design and produce tangible objects on demand, wherever and whenever they need them."

 

Three-dimensional printers are already old hat to the professor. "The revolution," he writes, "is ... the ability to turn data into things and things into data. ... Scientists in a number of labs (including mine) are now working on the real thing, developing processes that can place individual atoms and molecules into any structure they want.

 

Unlike 3-D printers today, these will be able to build complete functional systems at once, with no need for parts to be assembled. The aim is to not only to produce parts for a drone, for example, but build a complete vehicle that can fly straight out of the printer. ...

3. 3D Printing

 

Even in relative the infancy of 3D printing, there are those seeking to extend this technology to deliver greater benefits. This article discusses the extensions of 3D printing in to areas not first imagined such as the printing of food. It then extends from 3D printing to assembling also. Virtually producing fully functioning cars from atoms and making them ready to drive 'hot' off the printer. This provides endless opportunities for all to be shopping and purchasing without doing either - just printing and using. No shipping costs - no middle man. 

 

To be quite informal about it, MIND = BLOWN!

Peugeot Citroen to introduce compressed air hybrid by 2016

Peugeot Citroen to introduce compressed air hybrid by 2016 | web devil | Scoop.it

PSA’s Hybrid Air technology is similar to current battery electric hybrid vehicles, such as the Toyota Prius, but it uses compressed air for energy storage rather than batteries. A hydraulic pump/motor unit recovers energy generated by the ICE and from braking and deceleration, storing it in a compressed air energy storage unit.

 

PSA says for city driving, its Hybrid Air system provides fuel savings of 45 percent and increases a vehicle’s range by 90 percent compared to conventional engines with the same power rating.

 

In standard body styles, such as the Citroen C3 and Peugeot 208, the company says the system achieves certified fuel consumption (combined cycle) figures of 2.9 l/100 km...

Sepp Hasslberger's curator insight, January 26, 2013 9:48 PM

This technology has been in development for over a decade and is technologically well in hand. The decision to use compressed air as an assist to a normal gasoline motor eliminates concerns of short range. The fact that a major manufacturer gets in on the game means we will soon see some of those cars on the road.

Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, January 27, 2013 5:02 AM

"...with a few exceptions, such as Volvo’s Air Motion Concept, major automotive manufacturers have generally shied away from such technology.


PSA Peugeot Citroen is bucking this trend with its “Hybrid Air” powertrain that addresses the limited range of compressed air energy storage technology by combining it with a gasoline powered internal combustion engine (ICE).


The company plans to have Hybrid Air powered vehicles on the road by 2016."

Firefox add-on Collusion reveals who is spying on internet users | web devil | Scoop.it
Mozilla, the maker of Firefox, has unveiled a new add-on for the popular web browser which its CEO says will 'pull back the curtain' on web advertising firms, showing users who watches their clicks.

 

'Collusion is an experimental add-on for Firefox and allows you to see all the third parties that are tracking your movements across the Web,' Mozilla said. 'It will show, in real time, how that data creates a spider-web of interaction between companies and other trackers.'


'Collusion will allow us to pull back the curtain and provide users with more information about the growing role of third parties, how data drives most Web experiences, and ultimately how little control we have over that experience and our loss of data,' said Kovacs.


Mozilla aims to build up a database of the worst offenders - and make the data available to privacy campaigners.
