Google Street View Cars Are Sniffing Out Climate-Destroying Methane As They Drive

While they’re making pretty pictures of our city streets, why not hook up some environmental sensors to the Google Street View Cars? These maps will show you where very bad gas leaks are.

Vantablack

British researchers have created the ‘new black’ of the science world - and it is being dubbed super black.

The material absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of light, a new world record, and is so dark the human eye struggles to discern its shape and dimension, giving the appearance of a black hole.

Named Vantablack, or super black, it also conducts heat seven and half times more effectively than copper, and is ten times stronger than steel.

It is created by Surrey NanoSystems using carbon nanotubes, which are 10,000 thinner than human hair and so miniscule that light cannot get in but can pass into the gaps in between.

Focusing on car-congestion relief is a bad idea when it comes to good urbanism

Top: depressingly true cartoon.

Bottom: two photos of actual interstate construction tearing through neighborhoods on the middle of Atlanta, harming connectivity between neighborhoods and destroying buildings for the sake of moving as many cars as possible.

Currently on tap: $1billion dollars to be spent on a single interchange — 400/I-285 — to attempt to fix congestion by increasing capacity for cars at peak commuting times.

The dog is chasing its tail again, spending massive resources on the doomed-to-failure attempts at congestion relief when there are so many other needs in infrastructure and mobility.

SIGN MY PETITION

Let “we won’t raise the gas tax to fund roads, we’ll just take public money from other places” Georgia know that this is the wrong investment to make with our dwindling transportation funds. Particularly in a state and metro with many other pressing needs.
