President Obama & Bill Nye Talk Earth Day in the Everglades

As you know, President Obama celebrated Earth Day this week by visiting the Florida Everglades where he spoke about the threat that climate change poses to our economy and to the world, in the latest part of his effort to call attention to act on the threat of climate change. The President also announced how we're investing millions in new funding to protect our parks, as well as new actions the Department of Agriculture will take in partnership with farmers, ranchers and forest land owners to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions. While in Florida the President sat down with Bill Nye the Science Guy in the Everglades to discuss climate change, conservation, and science education in America.

Renewable Energy from Evaporating Water

Simple devices made of bacterial spores, glue, and plastic may allow capturing energy from evaporating water. This video explains the motivation behind our work and the exciting process of scientifically driven innovation. The contents are based on the publication: "Scaling up nanoscale water-driven energy conversion into evaporation-driven engines and generators", Nature Communications, 6:7346 (2015). http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/ncomms8346 For more information, http://www.extremebio.org/

Passive House = 90% Home Energy Reduction!

Passive House is an incredible building standard for designing and certifying energy efficient buildings (homes, schools, hospitals, offices, etc.). Using the 5 green building techniques explained in this video, Passive Houses need only 10% of the energy that a conventional home uses (that's a 90% energy saving!). We met up with Alex and Sandra from BCIT's High Performance Building Lab in Vancouver, Canada to learn about the different ways that a home can be built to use less energy. They're pretty simple to understand and don't cost much more than a typical new build: - Highly insulated building envelope - High performance triple glazed windows - Elimination of thermal bridges - Continuous air sealed layer - Heat recovery ventilation The building lab at BCIT is a really exciting new space where tradespeople can come to learn about green building techniques. To learn more, check out this link to their website: www.bcit.ca/zeroenergybuildings We want to say an extra special thank you to Sandra and Alex for taking time to show us how all of these building techniques worked (late into the evening!). We had a blast and learned so much!
