The 10 Most Sustainable Architecture Projects Of 2016 2.5.2016 Green on
The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and its Committee on the Environment (COTE) have selected the top ten sustainable architecture and ecological design projects for 2016. Now in its 20th year, the COTE Top Ten Awards program honors projects that protect and enhance the environment through an integrated approach to architecture, natural systems, and technology. A recently released study, entitled "Lessons from the Leading Edge," reports that design projects recognized through this program are “outpacing the industry by virtually every standard of performance.” The 2016 COTE Top Ten Green Projects are: 1. Biosciences Research Building (Galway, Ireland) The design of the BRB embraces the moderate climate of Ireland. By locating low-load spaces along the perimeter of the building, the project is able to take advantage of natural ventilation as the sole conditioning strategy for the majority of the year and is supplemented less than 10 percent of the year with radiant heating.

Sustainable mobility: 3 steps to scaling up renewables in transport 2.5.2016 Green on
"The Week that Electric Vehicles Went Mainstream" was the headline of a recent blog posted by Tesla Motors. Just one week before, the company began taking reservations for its long-awaited consumer-priced sedan, which will begin production in 2017. The response was unprecedented. According to Tesla, they received 325,000 reservations in one week, which corresponds to about $14 billion in implied future sales - the biggest one-week launch of any product ever. Commentators were quick to point out that electric vehicles (EVs) still only represent a fraction of a percent of total vehicles on the road; only 500,000 of the 66 million cars sold worldwide in 2015 were electric. In truth, while the transition to a renewables-based electricity system is well underway, moving to a renewables-based transportation system is more challenging. The transportation sector has the lowest share of renewable energy use compared with every other sector of the economy, and shares are not expected to increase dramatically based ...

Open Dialogue and Sustainability Education 2.5.2016 Green on
For academics, the month of May signifies the end of the year, a time to assess the work of your students, and the start of revising courses for the next academic year. Here at Columbia, this is reinforced by the transformation of our town center, "College Walk," into a small stadium with bleachers, platforms, big screen TVs and a sound system suitable for a rock concert. I always use this time to take stock of the accomplishments of our students, and to think hard about what we are teaching them and our responsibility as educators. Education is always about choice and perspective, no matter how technical and complex your subject. A teacher always asks: What do I choose to present? What do I leave out in order to focus more on what I leave in? What are the boundaries of my subject matter? When a subject is new, in the enthusiasm of new knowledge, we sometimes don't mention skeptics and contrary perspectives. After things settle down, a good teacher remembers to mention that his or her view of reality is ...

Balancing the Scales of City Sustainability 2.5.2016 Green on
I spend virtually all my professional time thinking about the intersection of human settlement and environmental sustainability. I am particularly interested in the built environment of American cities, towns, and suburbs - what I like to call our "people habitat" - and how it relates to the natural world. How can we make these two realms - people habitat and natural habitat - more harmonious? These issues are acutely on my mind today because I am preparing a talk I have been invited to deliver early next month on "Urbanism and Sustainability." (For those who are interested, it will be at the annual meeting of the Congress for the New Urbanism, in Detroit, at 10.15 am on June 8 .) The scales of urban sustainability I suppose I should start by defining what I mean by "environmental sustainability." I generally use the phrase in its colloquial sense, to mean environmental health. More formally, most scholars start with the definition of sustainable development in the international treatise Our Common ...

LISTEN HERE: Underestimating Trump, Shrum/Christie/Green prognosticate again post-primaries: Will great persona + viral message be ticket for future presidents? Will reactionary GOP reconstitute after realigning loss? Will Trump put bully Christie in VP pulpit or go nuclear with Knight? Should no-drama Hillary choose a guy to help with guys or win with Warren? Presumptive Trump? Bob and Ron agree that unless Cruz thinks of something even more head-turning than Fiorina -- maybe nominating a successor to Scalia's seat? -- the GOP race and #nevertrump are effectively over. It's kneel Zod time. Can Trump be "sooo presidential," as he promised? Based on his foreign policy address this week, the panel doubts it. They agree with Charles Krauthammer that his scripted, tele-prompted speech was as wandering, hollow and confused as his off-the-cuff rants. Can his repeated technique of "assertion" that persuades credulous people by creating reality -- we'll destroy ISIS! Obama-Clinton a weak disaster! great trade ...
