Last week, Professor Anthony Ingraffea published a strong op-ed in The New York Times, in which he noted that “unless [natural gas] leaks can be kept below 2 percent, gas lacks any climate advantage over coal.”
Now, a new study confirms those concerns, finding that, on average, 6 to 12 percent of the methane produced is leaking.

"This building puts 4,450 households on two acres and it is actually designed with energy conservation in mind. By going huge they are getting tremendous manufacturing efficiencies; by going vertical they get the kind of repetition that makes it affordable. By going half a mile high and 220 stories they are going to get noticed."
That is Lloyd Alter describing the sustainable case for what will be the world’s tallest building. See more pictures and a video here: One Building, One City: World’s tallest prefab, Sky City, is breaking ground in June

Evoking the fluid shape of a manta ray, this incredible structure built by Dutch firm 24H-architecture as part of the Six Senses Soneva Kiri eco-resort on the remote island of Koh Kood, Thailand: it’s designed as a children’s activity and learning center, but the fantastic interiors are bound to impress even the most stoic grown-up.

From biofuels to fish-free health supplements and interactive, energy-generating “cyber-gardens,” there are a lot of potential green uses for algae. On the design side, we’ve previously seen London-based designer Julia Lohmann’s prototypical lamps made out of sheep’s stomachs, and now she has turned to kelp — a fast-growing, large kind of algae best known in Asian cuisines — for creating lighting made out of abundantly-available and natural materials.
