Credit-crunch economics cause clean-tech projects to be abandoned 1.1.2009 The Guardian -- Front Page
Low oil prices and the credit crunch are threatening to stall the green revolution. The value of crude has dropped from a summer high of nearly $150 a barrel to below $40, taking the wind out of the sails of turbine manufacturers and others ­trying to build low-carbon alternatives. Jeremy Leggett, founder and executive chairman of Solarcentury, says: "Talk of the death of renewables is premature but clearly big solar farms and wind projects are being cancelled. Everything is suf­fering in the current climate but its my contention that the low oil price is a temporary thing and the growth of renew­ables will resume." Michael Liebreich, chief executive of information provider , says his leading index of clean-technology companies has fallen ...

The Edge question: Leading thinkers predict the future 1.1.2009 The Guardian -- World Latest
Flying cars, personal , holidays on the moon, the paperless office – the predictions of futurologists are, it seems, doomed to fail. The only thing predictable about the future is its unpredictability. But that has not stopped – the online intellectual salon – asking which ideas and inventions will provide humanity's next leap forward. In its traditional New Year challenge to the planet's best thinkers it asks, "What will change everything – What game-changing scientific ideas and developments do you expect to live to see?" World-changing technology has a habit of arriving out of the blue and turning society on its head. The printing press, electricity, antibiotics, the pill, mobile phones and the internet have all transformed human ...

Which technologies are set to change everything? 1.1.2009 The Guardian -- World Latest
"Through science we create technology and in using our new tools we recreate ourselves." So says the intro to . This year it is asking "What will change everything – What game-changing scientific ideas and developments do you expect to live to see?" And as ever, the great and the good have responded to the call. Geneticist Craig Venter, psychologist , novelist , philosopher , physicist and cloning pioneer are just some of the overwhelmingly male-dominated list of more than 110 respondents. For Pinker, the exercise is doomed to fail: I have little faith in anyone's ability to predict what will change everything. A look at the futurology of the past turns up many chastening examples of confident predictions of technological revolutions ...

Winds of change come to country plagued by power blackouts 30.12.2008 The Guardian -- World Latest
The forest of white windmills that make up Asia's largest wind farm can be seen from miles away. Dotted across 2,000 square kilometres of hills and villages on a basalt plateau in western India sit more than 800 turbines - generating more than 1,000 megawatts of electricity. The towering machines, which stand 80 metres tall, cast shadows across fields tilled by man and buffalo - a stark juxtaposition of ancient and modern India. For one man, however, the windmill farm in Dhule is a fitting riposte to the critics who derided his dream to build a global green energy business from a country plagued by crippling power cuts. In little more than a decade, Tulsi Tanti has made Suzlon Energy into the world's fifth-largest producer of wind turbines - ...
