Did you know that batteries could last 1,000 years with the help of pine resin and alfalfa seeds? If this is like most other discoveries, it could be a while until we actually see batteries like this, but it's wonderful to know that research is being done towards this. Click here

Have you ever wondered what no ice in the arctic might mean (besides more natural disasters)? According to the president of Iceland, the arctic is the new political and economic playing field. Click here

As you most likely know, California is in extreme drought conditions. But did you know that the drought is not even expected to improve this winter (according to new forecast data from NOAA)? Click here

There's more, but I will leave the rest for you to discover and enjoy.

Car batteries may soon last 1,000 years thanks to pine and alfalfa
A group of Swedish researchers just discovered an unconventional way to give new life to rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries: with pine resin and alfalfa seeds. This has green implications beyond the materials’ woodsy roots. Lithium-ion batteries help power everything from iPhones to Nissan Leafs (Leaves?). And demand for the batteries from automobile manufacturers could explode up to 400 percent in the next six years. Current methods for recycling Li-ion batteries are energy-intensive and require toxic materials. So yeah, giving the mass-produced batteries new charge with sustainable materials could have a huge impact.

An article in Science Nordic explains the so-called “Achilles’ heel” of lithium batteries that inspired the project:
Essentially nothing revolutionary has happened with batteries since they were first devised 215 years ago … Contemporary battery technology is expensive and is still keeping most motorists from switching from exhaust-spuming internal combustion engine cars to clean-running EVs …

How one building is changing the world
It used to be that the Bullitt Foundation “saved the planet” the old-fashioned way, putting its money behind campaigns to spare old-growth forests, stop mines in Alaska, and clean up toxic waste. Not anymore. The Seattle-based foundation, started by local media magnate Dorothy Bullitt, has turned its attention to cities, funding projects in urban ecology, clean energy, and technology. And recently, Bullitt tried a new tack for changing the world: It built something. Not just any something: It’s what the foundation’s CEO, Denis Hayes, calls “the most efficient office building in the world, and likely the most efficient building in the world, period.” The much ballyhooed Bullitt Center features a canopy of solar panels that generates all of the electricity used on site; a green roof seeded with micro-organisms that captures and cleans rainwater; giant floor-to-ceiling windows that open and close automatically to regulate the temperature; and a fleet of composting toilets that looks like an army of Daleks in the basement.

7 Fun & Natural Autumn Decor Ideas

Gourds, twigs, apples, acorns — the harvest season is here. But put your wallet away. Ditch the store-bought hangings, artificially scented candles, and plastic maple wreaths. There are cheaper, more natural ways of decorating your house for the season. Everything you need to brighten up your quarters lies within or just outside your front door. If you want to get a little resourceful and creative, here are some great ideas for decorating your house with bits of autumn!

Light some candles. Candles make great decorations, and the beeswax variety even purifies your air. Try hand dipping your own tapers as a fun afternoon experiment, or pour melted wax and a wick into acorn caps to make teensy, super adorable floating tea lights. If you have some old candles hanging around, recycled mason jars are a great way to hang some flickering festivity around the house in eco-friendly style. If you are more daring, try scenting your own candles. Most autumn-scented candles are highly artificial and a bit nauseating. You’ll be amazed at how easy it is to uniquely scent your own candles with various combinations of your favorite scents.

Sorry, California — winter isn’t going to fix your drought
California’s crippling drought is not expected to improve over the winter, according to new forecast data released Thursday by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Nearly 60 percent of the state is experiencing exceptional drought — the worst category — NOAA reported. The map below shows that the northern California coast could see some improvement. But in the Central Valley, a critical source of fruits, nuts, and vegetables for the whole country, conditions won’t be getting better any time soon. A little rain is expected, NOAA forecaster Mike Halpert said in a statement, but not enough to reverse the trend. “While we’re predicting at least a 2 in 3 chance that winter precipitation will be near or above normal throughout the state, with such widespread, extreme deficits, recovery will be slow,” he said. The report adds that El Niño, which tends to brings wet weather for the West Coast, is expected to be weak this winter and thus won’t provide much relief.

Something Worth Knowing

10 Best Foods to Buy in Bulk to Save Money
It’s National Bulk Food Week, an event organized by the Bulk is Green Council to raise awareness about the environmental and economic benefits of buying in bulk when you shop.

Why bother with bulk?

Buying in Bulk Saves Money. – Organic bulk foods on average cost 89% less than their packaged counterparts. In fact, pretty much all food costs less when you buy a larger size or choose from bins that allow you to package up your food yourself. See for yourself the next time you go shopping. Compare the price of a pound of loose fresh carrots to a bag of peeled and washed baby carrots. The fresh carrots may cost one-third as much as the bagged ones. The same is true of packaged paper goods, like toilet tissue and paper towels. The more you buy, the less each one costs per unit price.

Bulk Foods Put a Lower Foot Print on the Planet. – Pre-packaged food comes wrapped in plastic, polystyrene, paper, and cardboard. All this wrapping takes its toll on the water and trees that are used to produce them. Plus, manufacturing all that packaging generates air and water pollution, along with climate-changing carbon dioxide that’s emitted when oil and coal are burned to produce paper and plastic.
