Aging Gracefully

In an ongoing series of elegant, largely landscape-driven photographs, Brooklyn-based photographer Rachel Sussman focuses her lens on what are definitively the oldest living organisms in the world (i.e. plants, forestry, coral, and fungi that have been around for upwards of 2,000 years). The project, titled “The Oldest Living Things,” has...

Ticklish?

It’s a near universal reflex… First, the tension—every muscle in your body contracts and spasms as you try to ward off your attacker. Limbs kick, swat, and flail about. Eventually, you hunch over, thinking that might help. Then come the fits of laughter. It’s nervous laughter, loud laughter, hooting-howling-squealing laughter, and laughter...

San Francisco-based photographer Christina Seely wants to bring things back down to Earth. Her “Lux” series starts with NASA composite imagery of the entire planet at night. It’s sort of the inverse of looking up at the stars—flickers of light denote people as the most densely-populated regions of the world correlate with those bearing the...

Greener Driving

When the 2011 Chevrolet Volt and 2011 Nissan Leaf electric cars launched in December 2010, major automakers began selling plug-in cars again for the first time in 80 years. The numbers will be small at first, but plug-in vehicles will grow over the next 20 or 30 years to become a substantial portion of global production.

Cars running on energy produced by the electricity grid emit substantially less “wells to wheels” carbon in operation than do gasoline cars burning gasoline, even those that return 40 miles per gallon. Analyst and writer John Voelcker, who edits GreenCarReports.com, explains the Volt and how it works, and discusses the energy and policy implications of such a momentous change.
