Record melting of Arctic ice, it had never before dropped below 4 million square kilometersIn less than one generation, we have altered the way in which the planet looks from space and soon the North Pole will be completely ice free in summer, probably within the next 5 years or at the most the next 20, depending on the forecast.

The new Frecciarossa 1000 will travel at an average speed of 360 kilometers per hour, saving energy and respecting the environment
Frecciarossa 1000, built by AnsaldoBreda and Bombardier, will be the quietest and lowest-environmental-impact train thanks to its aerodynamic shape that will reduce energy consumption and noise, and to the use of light alloys.
It is called the Frecciarossa 1000, the latest jewel built by AnsaldoBreda (a Finmeccanica Group company) with Bombardier. The new high-speed train will travel at an average speed of 360 kilometers per hour on the high-speed... Read More
The robots designed in Scotland work as a team, like bees, and can dive to depths over 200 meters, unlike scuba divers that now do the job. Thanks to a database in the development phase, they look for coral fragments to be reattached to the reef.
In the last 30 years, coral reefs have severely declined, so much so that they risk extinction within a few decades. A recent study by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) showed that less than 10% of the reef in the Caribbean is still alive today, compared to 50% in the 1970s.
According to the World Resources... Read More

They are starting to come around as evidenced by the highly publicized... Read More
