However, now with Republicans in control of the Senate, there is a covert push underway to eviscerate the protective agency and force the red… View full post on Inhabitat – Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building



Newly discovered property of graphene could lead to infinite clean energy

Physicists at the University of Arkansas have discovered a new property of graphene, an extraordinary material composed of ultra-thin, nearly 2D sheets of atoms, that could be exploited to generate endless, clean energy. While investigating the simple phenomenon of graphene’s ability to ripple and shake, physicist Paul Thibado and a group of graduate students uncovered a previously unknown behavior of graphene in which the wonder material buckles and twists in small, random fluctuations, potentially… View full post on Inhabitat – Green Design, Innovation, Architecture, Green Building
