Aptera Typ-1 to Begin Production in 2008

Those of you who dismissed the Aptera Typ-1 as a ridiculous-looking circus freak of a concept vehicle can now shut the hell up. This car of the future that got an astonishing 231 mpg on its first ever test drive and more resembled an airplane than a car with its odd shape, gulf-wing doors and three wheels is soon to become a reality.

The folks at Aptera are givers in the truest sense of the word. In order to push the Typ-1 out of the R&D (that’s research & design) phase and into the manufacturing phase, they’ve been (according to their newsletter) working late into the night, abusing caffeine and doing intensive fine-tuning in order to bring you a vehicle that’s not only funky looking, but as “safe, efficient and comfortable as possible.” Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

G4 Host Kristin Holt Adds G Living To Her Favorites. So Should You!

Who? Sure, it’s not a story about Madonna and her appearance on the cover of Vanity Fair’s Green Issue or Trudie Styler saving Ecuadorean tribes or Leonardo DiCaprio kitting his house out with solar panels. So, why are we writing about this former Dallas cheerleader/American Idol semi-finalist? Because she’s a TV host and we all know that’s the most important job in the world. (At least that’s what I tell myself every morning on my way to work.) Continue Reading / Additional Photos / Videos

Vectrix ZEV | Sexy Electric Two-Wheeler

vectrix zev 01 Vectrix ZEV | Sexy Electric Two Wheeler

I’m not one of those people who likes to complain just for the sake of complaining. I’m much more solution oriented than that. So, after railing on the crazy three-wheeled Sidam Xnovo, I feel compelled to follow it up with my opinion of a better choice. And I choose the Vectrix ZEV.

In fact, if all goes according to plan, it will be my next vehicle. Why waste time going to the gas station when you can just plug in this baby and go? Called “the world’s first high-performance electric motorcycle with performance and style” and boasting a clean, efficient, electric motor, this speedy city machine has no noise or pollution and you’ll never need to change the oil.

When Brad Pitt engaged 14 of the world’s leading architects to submit designs for his Make It Right project to rebuild New Orleans, he requested a strict standard of sustainability and practicality.

Mixing local designers from New Orleans with various national and international firms, Pitt aimed to create smart urban planning that incorporated a modern feel while maintaining the spirit of the city’s culturally rich Lower 9th Ward.

From the Make It Right site: “MIR’s goal is to join the history of this tradition with creative new architectural solutions mindful of environmental and personal safety concerns in order to encourage both the evolution of aesthetic distinctiveness and the conscientious awareness of natural surroundings.”

Sting and Trudie Styler Trapped In Their Carbon Heavy Rock Style Life

sting trudie styler green eco carbon footprint Sting and Trudie Styler Trapped In Their Carbon Heavy Rock Style Life

His band has been called the world’s dirtiest (and not because of their lyrics), while she’s been under fire for allegedly “forcing her chef to travel 100 miles to prepare a bowl of pasta.” Yet Sting and wife Trudie Styler have both claimed to be eco-warriors.

In what appears to be a standard case of “do as I say and not as I do”, it seems the rock legend and his producer wife have been caught with their eco pants down. “It’s true — we’re hypocrites over our huge carbon footprint,” the UK’s Daily Mail quotes Styler as saying during a recent interview at the Earls Court Real Food Festival after a journalist pointed out that the couple’s footprint “has been estimated as 30 times greater than the average Briton’s.”

Endangered Tibetan Antelope Triples Population in Ten Years

endangered tibetan antelope population triples Endangered Tibetan Antelope Triples Population in Ten Years

China’s been under such fire lately. People are pulling out of the Beijing Olympic games right and left because of the country’s pollution issues or alleged contributions to the Darfur crisis. It seems we’re also bombarded with constant reports of Chinese manufactured lead-based toys that endanger children. But not I’m going to talk about any of that. I’m only sharing happy thoughts here as I shine the good light on one of the world’s oldest and most fascinating civilizations.

While the Chinese may not care about kids eating poisoned paint (wait — I wasn’t going to talk about that), they care a lot about the Tibetan antelope. And the rare species, which is found exclusively in China’s Tibet-Qinghai region, not has not been doing well since the late 20th Century. This medium-sized bovid, who also goes by the name of chiru, is a gregarious animal that has a life span of about eight years.
