      • Environment / Magnets

        Earth-Friendly Elements, Mined Destructively - Some of the greenest technologies of the age, including e-cars and wind turbines, are made possible by rare earth minerals. Just one problem: These elements come almost entirely from China, from some of the most environmentally damaging mines in the country, in an industry dominated by criminal gangs.

      • Batteries > Lithium Ion >
        "Home Batteries" to power houses for a week - Panasonic has announced plans to create 'home batteries.' They are lithium-ion batteries large enough to power a house for a week, making energy sources such as solar and wind power more feasible. Also, you can buy energy when it is cheapest, and don't need to worry about power outages anymore. (Nexus404; Dec. 24, 2009)
      • Fuel Efficiency > Tires

        Reinventing the wheel -- shapeshifter - The Pumplon tire by a Brizilian inventor can change its shape to that best suited for the conditions of the road. This shape of tire contains green benefits too in the form of reduced travel times to increased fuel efficiency. Probably not as useful in locations with good roads. (Alt Energy News; Dec. 21, 2009)

        Congress Repeals Ban on Perpetual Motion Machines - In a bold move to lessen our dependence on traditional fuels and decrease carbon emissions, Congress voted to repeal an old Republican ban on perpetual motion machines, clearing the way for the development of self-propelled water wheels, self-flowing flasks, float belts, zeromotors, and other environmentally-friendly industrial equipment.

      • Zeitgeist

        This Year In Clean Energy - What A Ride - An overview from a mainstream clean energy perspective, giving kudoes to the U.S. administration for stimulus funds for conventional renewables [disregarding the mounting debt; and not doing squat for extreme breakthroughs that could really break the oil addiction and bring individual energy autonomy].

      • Batteries

        A Quantum Leap in Battery Design - A "digital quantum battery" concept proposed by a physicist at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign could provide a dramatic boost in energy storage capacity over lithium ion batteries by several orders of magnitude. The concept calls for billions of nanoscale capacitors. (MIT Technology Review; December 21, 2009) ('PhysOrg)

      • BioElectricity

        Hybrid biological machines powered by bacteria - Scientists at the U.S. DOE Argonne National Laboratory and Northwestern University have produced tiny microgears with slanted spokes that get turned as the common aerobic bacteria Bacillus subtilis swim by them. The reaction is controlled by the addition/subtraction of oxygen. (GizMag; Dec. 21, 2009)

      • Wind > High Altitude >
        The Kite Wind Generator - An Italian company is installing Kite Wind Generators, or KiteGens that are mounted on giant movable poles. When wind blows these kites come out of funnels on a pair of high-resistance cables to control direction and angle. As the kites blow left then right, they pole movement generates electricity. (Alt Energy News; Dec. 21, 2009)
      • Geothermal > Downsides

        Geopower driller faces jail for causing earthquakes - The head of Geopower Basel, a thermal energy company, was testing pioneering technology to blast cold water deep underground and create steam to drive electric turbines; had to stop when it recorded an earthquake measuring 3.4 on the Richter scale and a series of smaller tremors that led to 3,500 claims for damages from homeowners and a compensation bill of SwFr9 million (£5.4 million).
