Taking care of the planet from Inhabitat

It’s been a rollercoaster week for environmentalists – first Ivanka and Donald trump met with Al Gore to discuss climate change, but then the President Elect turned about face and picked a climate change denier and friend of the fossil fuel industry to lead the EPA.

And then this morning we learned that Leonardo DiCaprio met with Donald Trump to try to school him on climate change.  At least there’s some good news in Standing Rock – this week the US Army officially blocked the Dakota Access Pipeline in a major win for protestors. (But don’t get too complacent about this issue yet…)

In design news, America’s first urban “Agrihood” has risen in Detroit and it’s feeding 2,000 households for free. Researchers developed a new type of super battery that could charge phones in seconds and electric cars in minutes. And PLP Architectures proposed a network of crazy CarTubes that could move city traffic underground.
