If travel to distant stars within an individual’s lifetime is going to be possible, a means of faster-than-light propulsion will have to be found. So far, even recent research about faster-than-light transport based on Einstein’s theory of general relativity would require vast amounts of hypothetical particles and states of matter that have ‘exotic’ physical properties […]

A new National University of Singapore study reveals that households respond to ambient air pollution by increasing electricity consumption. That in turn increases the pollution and carbon emissions that are co-produced in supplying the electricity.

A University of Michigan researcher group has developed a solution that could provide more efficient, more personalized comfort, completely doing away with the wall-mounted thermostats we’re accustomed to. The study paper describes a Human Embodied Autonomous Thermostat, or “HEAT,” that is detailed in the study published in Building and Environment. As lockdown requirements ease, COVID-19 […]

Yale’s School of Forestry & Environmental Studies new article provides insights into the factors that underpin the effectiveness of peer influence. They then show how it might be used to promote more sustainable energy choices. A growing body of research shows that the behavior of peers can significantly influence an individual’s energy-related decisions, but why […]
