ENDLESS ELECTRICITY: Here’s A Way Of Turning America’s Roads Into Gigantic Solar Panels

There are about 31,251 square miles of roads, parking lots, driveways, playgrounds, bike paths, and sidewalks in the lower 48 states. If Julie and Scott Brusaw have their way, they will all someday be replaced with solar panels.

For the better part of a decade, the Idaho couple has been working on prototyping an industrial-strength panel that could withstand the weight of even the largest trucks. They now appear to have cracked the formula, developing a specially textured glass coating for the panels that can not only bear tremendous loads but also support standard tire traction.

By their reckoning, at peak installation their panelized roads could produce more than three times the electricity consumed in the U.S.

The material could power electric vehicles through a receiver plate mounted beneath the vehicle and a transmitter plate is installed in the road.

Are Any Plastics Safe? Industry Tries to Hide Scary New Evidence on BPA-Free Bottles, Containers

Not that I don’t avoid dangerous things full time.  But come on.  Plastic is dangerous.  Just stop using it where you can, even though it’ll remain a big part of our lives

democracynow:

A new exposé by Mother Jones magazine may shock anyone who uses plastic. Reporter Mariah Blake appears on Democracy Now! for an extended interview about her investigation, “The Scary New Evidence on BPA-Free Plastics, And the Big Tobacco-style Campaign to Bury it.”
